Copying a list dynamically to a different board

I have one list in a team board where I assign work to a staff member. I would like to take that one list off of a 'work' board and copy it to a list on my personal board, but have it update in real time.  I use this personal board as my computer's home screen and I like to keep tabs on this one particular work list without having to toggle back and forth between boards. 

I do not want to share my personal board with my staff, so I don't want to make this personal board a shared one. I only want to see this one shared list off of my work board. I do need to see the updated version as my staff ticks off jobs completed, etc.

It depends on which types of data do you want to synchronize. It is possible with butler but there are some limits.

I'll check this out. It's just a set of cards. Each card has a job assignment on it. Nothing fancy. Thank you for the article reference!

You can use rules like this for example :

To duplicate & link a card 

when a card is added, copy the card to list "Inbox" on board "Personal" and link the cards together 

To synchronize card movement

when a card is moved to list "Done", find the first card linked in the attachments, and move the card to the bottom of list "Done" 

 You can use this structure for other events

  • Adding due date
  • Adding item

But it is little more difficult. If you are interested, I can give you more details.

Thank you!  This was all very helpful. I used the copying and linking method and it worked very smoothly. I appreciate all the help!  Everything syncs up perfectly.

The suggested rule to synchronize is specific to the list "Done".

If you want with one rule to cover all lists.

Just replace :

  • Done by {*} in the trigger.
  • Done by {wildcard1} in the action
