Can I automate between different boards?

For example:

I have two boards (1 and 2).

On board 1 I created a card, which I would like to connect with a card on board 2. And when the card on board 2 is moved (for example in Testing), I would like that on the card on Board 1, there is an indication (so I can let my customers know).

Is this possible in any way in Trello?

Hi @Matej Grujić 👋

Welcome to the Community! It's a good question, Trello has written a great blog that covers a little of this which may be of help to you - Using Multiple Trello Boards for a Super-Flexible Workflow.

The main part of the blog you might be interested to read is...

Getting An Assist With Automation

If you have a lot of repeated card movements from board to board, you don’t have to keep repeating these steps over and over. Allow robots to help with that!

By using automated services like Butler or Zapier, you can set automated actions such as, “Every time a card is moved to the list titled ‘Done,’ automatically transfer that card to ‘Reference Board.’” This makes copying and moving Trello cards from board to board a total cinch.

How to automate card management in Trello

For automated reminders or recurring tasks, you can also use Trello Power-Ups Card Repeater and Card Snooze:

Card Repeater allows you to set a recurring card that will create itself at an interval of your choosing. For example, if you always do the same things every Monday morning to settle into the work week, you can set a card to appear on your To Do list to kick off your week with a checklist of those same items.

Card Snooze is for those cards that have been laying around your To Do list for ages but you know you’re not getting to them right away. You can set a card to archive itself and return on another Monday (or another time interval), when perhaps you’re feeling more motivated (we get it).

To activate one of these automation services, click “Menu” on the right side of your Trello board, then “Power-Ups” and search in the Power-Ups directory.

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions just ask away 😃

All the best,

Hey @Matej Grujić 

Another option you could look at is Unito. You can set up pretty flexible/customisable syncing/mirroring of cards with their platform and Power-Up (it is a paid app though).

Hope that helps,
