Easy way to mirror lists on Trello? (One list on one board exactly matches one list on another)

I've tried to find an easy solution to this- butler doesn't work, Unito does (maybe) but to do so costs $50/mo. 

I've asked on the Trello FB page, Reddit (HERE)... about to give up. It seems like it shouldn't be a hard feature to implement- I guess there just isn't much need for it. But it would really help me!

Thanks!

Eric

Hi Eric,

I'm afraid we do not have a native card sync feature at the moment. However, tBut there are many great options for setting up different types of syncs across your cards from our mirroring list here: Mirroring Cards.

If the options don't fit your requirement, could you share your business case so that we could understand and include into our feature request list?

Cheers, Syauqi

Totally agree with Eric L. 

 

The need to mirror list is real! 

 

Being able to mirror a card is handy of cause but being able to mirror an entire list, Oooooo, now there's true power!

For me cards represent smaller projects or parts of projects. Where lists represent entire projects within a department. Being able to maintain an over view of selected projects within a particular department from my own board would be super handy. This would mean at a glance I could eyeball the goings on without having to leave my focus zone. 

You could do this with multiple priority projects or department aspect all from the comfort of your own board. This would be a huge aid in maintaining focus while maintaining a solid over-watch. 

 

 

While I'm here: "DESKTOP CARD/LIST MIRROR"

A feature where you could drag a list or card over to your desktop and a mirrored list or card would exist on desktop until closed would be SUPER AWESOME for hyper focusing on individual projects; tasks and daily to do lists.

 

Thanks for being awesome Trello.

Totally agree! I have a list of tasks in multiple project boards, with each project having different users. I want to mirror all my task lists from the different boards into one board that is all of my task lists together, without everyone else's task lists. This seems like a fairly easy feature to add?

Another vote for this, please! I have IFTTT and Butler set up to help me stay on top of my workload, but life would be so much easier if I could mirror a couple of lists from a team board into my personal board. The lists on the team board are constantly updated, and I would love to be able to see those changes on my personal board in real time.

Then I could get a full picture of my workload without having to have two boards open--and could more easily process the cards from the team board within the context of my other work.

Not a card, but a list.

As an example; 

all our customers each have a board. Every month we create a "list" by name; oktober, november, december ect. 

What i need is a place where i can see all customers, oktober lists together as this is the team "to do list" for the month.

My instinct tells me to create a bord "to do Oktober" and sync/mirror each of the oktober lists from each customer. I can easily copy them across but i need them to sync, as it needs to not matter whether we create or make changes to cards in either place.

is there anyone out there who has a solution or a way of having this funktionality that i have not thought of?

I have tried Unito and unfortunately it does not word, it mirrors cards - not lists, as far as i can see.

Would love to have a solution by nov. 2019 - so our team can get started properly.

I would really love this featured added, as well. My team has a master board that links to each of our events that we plan; within each event, I want to be able to set up a list for each member of our team, so we can all see what each other is working on.

 

However when I sit down to do my own work, I like to work from my own personal board so I can see all my prioritized tasks at-a-glance. If I could mirror my own assigned list from each event board to my own personal board, this would be such a nice way to streamline things.

ABSOLUTELY AGREE! This would be so powerful.

I have been search high and low for this feature and I am honestly surprised it's not there.

I love that Trello is always updating and adding features. That's what makes it stand out to me above all the other copycats out there.

Can anyone with Atlassian let us know if this could be a reality in the near future?

hi @qasim_bajwa - have tried Unito but my experience is that it mirrors cards and not lists - I need mirroring of lists.

Have you seen my post in above tread?

Hi @Eric Lanigan,

 

Unito now offers a personal plan for $10/month. You may find it useful! I've posted some relevant resources below like our Trello + Trello integration page (to see the different ways you can use Unito to enhance your Trello experience) and a Webinar/Tutorial on 'Creating a Master Board in Trello.' 

 

Trello + Trello (http://bit.ly/2ZXqwhe)

Master Board Webinar/Tutorial (http://bit.ly/2OB4oIa)

Let me know if you've found any of this useful. I'm here if you have any more questions, or need any assistance!

 

Best,

Unito 

If you can decrease price or increase number of synchronization (now is not enough)  for 10 $ MONTH, I will buy immediately, but for the moment is too expensive and/or too short limit of synchr.

Just wanted to add a +1 to this. Would love to see this feature. 

I'd like to set it up so that

When Card x is assigned to Card Y User, Mirror and Sync that card to Y user's personal board in list "Company Z to Do". Obviously I'd set them up individually (I don't have access to their personal boards).  

I can do that with Butler and duplicate and link that card when it is assigned to a user. 

I can also use Butler so that if either linked card is moved to "Done" the linked card also moved to "Done"

I can also use Butler to delete linked card if user is no longer assigned to the primary card

But the content doesn't sync between the cards. It actually just captures the Card at the time of the trigger. 

I can manually mirror each card using Unito - but it costs way too much and doesn't integrate into Butler's conditional automation. 

The other mirroring power-ups also don't allow for automation, or cost too much IMHO. By the way Power-Ups should say they will cost money before you install them. Misleading.
