If you copy a card to another board and move it to a new column, can you move the original too?

I'm trialling an 'overview' board in Trello, as I have lots of boards for different subjects and want to keep track of all the priority cards. I've copied cards that I want to focus on to a new 'To Do' board, and am then moving them between To Do, Doing and Done lists on this overview board. It would be really helpful if, when I move my cards on this overview board, there was a way of moving the original cards on my specific boards as well, so I didn't have to go back and update them. Is there any way to do that?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions you might have!

Hi Helen,

This functionality is not included out of the box, but very easily accomplished with a power up (easiest) or an integration service (more difficult).


Trello has some suggestions here:


I recommend the Placker power up.

Thank you so much Meg, this is very helpful :)
