Card hierarchy feature

Our enterprise is going to purchase project management tool and the killig features for us which is stopping us from purchasing Trello are:
- multi-board parent-child hierarchy- tracking the dependencies between cards e.g. due date conflicts etc.

This is available in competitive product LeanKit .

I know about "Hello Epics" add-on for Trello, but it is not working across boards and don't track dependensies like LeanKit does.

Do you have any plans for "Cards Hierarchy" feature in Trello?  
Please let me know if this is going to appear in Trello. If not - we will look for alternative.

Best regards,Maxim

Hey there Max,

Welcome the community and Trello. Right now, we don't have immediate plans for a card hierarchy functionality, but that's certainly an interesting idea. I'll talk to our team here about it and let them know this is something some people are keen on.

Thank you!

I would also benefit from this feature though I will try out "hello epics"

Hi Max,

Aaron here, I work on Hello Epics at Substantial. We now support multiple boards across teams. Give it a shot.


It's not free! I just upgraded to Business Class thinking this add-on/power-up was included (free with business class subscription)! Wow! What a let down!

Yeah, I'm paying for enough things as it is, I'm not dropping even more -just- because I need parent-child relationships between my cards. Guess I'm sticking with chrome extensions. -_-

Hi Jen and MamaCatDev,

Thank you for the feedback! We are constantly reevaluating our pricing and will take it into account. A tremendous amount of work has gone into making Hello Epics a quality Power-Up, though we do realize that it's not for everyone.

Epic Cards by Screenful is a free Power-Up that provides support for epics in Trello. It adds another layer of abstraction above boards. You can learn all about if from this blog post:
