Hey Thosapol

In order to accomplish this, you need to enlist the help of a 3rd party application such as CardSync, Unito, or Butler.

Personally, I use Butler Automation.

To add custom automation using Butlerbot, follow these steps:

1) Add Butlerbot to your board here: https://www.butlerfortrello.com/dashboard.html.  for each board that you have a To Do list to copy over to a main board, add Butler.

  •  A new list will be created titled "Butler"
  •  Add a new card to the Butler list (on the "master" board)

every day at 8:00 am, copy all the cards in list "To Do" on board "Board1" to list "Master To Do" on board "Master".

and another card with 

every day at 8:00 am, copy all the cards in list "To Do" on board "Board2" to list "Master To Do" on board "Master".

In this instance, I have 2 boards, Board 1 and Board 2, along with a master board called Master.  The above 2 commands will copy all cards from both boards TO DO list and put them on MASTER TO DO on board Master.

This sounds like a good solution...however, if I update a todo on the main board, will it propagate back to the item on the original board?

@Matthew N, I'd like to also know the answer to @Vic's question.

Thanks!

@Matthew N, thank you for the answer. It is very helpful.

@Matthew NI'm also curious to your answer on @Vic's question! Would be wonderful if cards could sync both ways.

Slight addition to the answer to prevent duplicates appearing in the Master list is to archive the previous day's master list before copying over.

every day at 6:00 am, archive list "Master To Do" on board "Work", and copy each card to list "Master To Do" on board "Work"

While I can see the goal of Mathew's suggestion, what still bugs me is having all the duplicates. Because when I go to search, it includes archived cards and is not so obvious.

I've been using Planyway that shows cards by due date across boards. That has the added benefit of scheduling. Cuz we've all probably heard, what doesn't get scheduled doesn't get done!

There’s a Power-up for That!

So you’re using Trello at work, at home and to track your new DIY crafts. The family and co-workers are all on board and everything is organized, color coded and has a due date. But still, there’s so...
