Sync or mirroring of "lists" (not cards)

Just starting my team up in Trello - and need help to have a list synchronies across two boards.

Or maybe you have the obvious solution i dont see - help please

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.

Hi Sofie,

If I understand your problem correctly, you want to grab all the "October" lists from your customer's boards, and sync them with a "To do October" list on your teams' board, correct?

If Unito has not worked for you, you can try Butler. Butler is Trello's automation tool that you can access through its board button or in the sidebar. You can set up Butler to automatically copy cards from a certain list on one board, to another list on a different board. It is not exactly mirroring lists as you have said, but copying all the cards from one list to another could be a solution.


I will give it a try, and report back. :)

Hey Jireh, 
When I , as you suggest set up buttons to copy cards, will Butler automaticly update the cards if they are worked on - in both "Oktober" and "to do Oktober"?

Hi Sofie,

In the Power-up section, there are two separate Unito options, maybe the Connect and Sync Boards one will work for you if you didn't try this one already?  That one mentions 'lists' in the details it syncs


This link on their site also says it syncs Trello to Trello lists as well:

Not sure if that helps you at all? I'm new to Trello so have not used these power-ups or this product so only basing this on what I've read :)
