Copy New Cards from board to Overall Board retaining source.

Hi all,

We use trello to manage client projects in our landscape design firm.  We have a To Do- Doing- Done board for each client.  

I would like a way to see all my client to do's in one place so i can quickly get a dashboard view of what priorities are.

Ideally this would be in the calendar view.

Is this something I should do with butler? Create another trello board that gets all to'dos copied to it?  I am wondering how i retain the source of the card in that case, so that I know what client that to do is for.

any advice is appreciated, thanks

Hi @Tom LeBlanc , for getting an overall view of your clients and keep the sources I would recommend to take a look on Crmble

For viewing in a calendar view I would suggest Calendar Power-Up.

For see all your clientes to do´s in one place I would recomend to create a label for them and filtering by this label so you will see only that ones in your board.


Hope it helps! good luck!

Thanks for the tips, I am unable to view Crmble it says i need permission or invitation.

@Tom LeBlanc when you have a "board per client" model, I'd recommend using a "board of boards" where each card for each client is linked to that client's board. You can automate the creation and linking of these, that's the example I use in my introduction to Trellinator:

As far as getting a dashboard of current tasks, I did this example for someone on here the other day showing how to use Trellinator to create a checklist overview on each client card on the overview board showing current tasks, linked to each card:

You could do this in realtime instead, for example every time a card is moved to the "Doing" list on a client board, add a link to it to the relevant checklist, when moved to "Done" remove that item, you could have it so that when you mark the item as complete on the overview card the corresponding card in the client's board is moved to Done and so on.
