How do I create a master board to have a single view of my TO DOs within one board? Edited

I have a number of boards set up. Within every board I have a To Do list and a Doing list, among other lists. It's inefficient to move through each board to review the lists. It seems logical that whenever I create or update a card in my To Do or Doing list, a copy of it would appear in a master board, meaning I have a single view of all To Dos and Doings at any point in time. I don't care if I can't update from the master board but as a minimum I need to be able to view. Please help :)

Right now as a workaround, when I create a card in a To Do list I'm having to create a card with the same heading in the master board under the To Do list. And if I move a card from To Do to Doing, I need to also go into the ,aster board and manually move it.

Somes butler rules allow card mirroring like this


when a card is added to the board, 
copy the card to the top of list "todo" on board "masterboard"


when a card is moved to list "{*}", find the first card linked in the attachments, move the card to the top of list "{wildcard1}" on board "masterboard"

Thanks Ludo. Just did that and it's so close! The only hurdle is that it copies over any card I add to the board. I need to be able to do exactly what your rule says except I need to be able to have the rule apply to a specific list within the from board. That's because I only want my TODOs to go over and maybe my DOINGS. Butler looks like it can only pull from the entire board and not a specific list within the board. Hoping I'm wrong though! 

In this case, when you are building the rules just precise listname "todo"  for the first and "doings" for the second rule in trigger and action commands.
