While Linking Cards, is there a way to not show the preview on all linked cards?

It just takes up way too much room on the cards but I have to link them to keep the dates useable throughout all our steps in our process... I have dates that have to cross 5 cards... is there a better way to keep them all linked through "set custom field "Due" to "{something}, and set due on the date in the custom field "Due"?

You can collect cards in a checklist on the Task card and in each subtask card, add a link to the task card.

Checklists take up much less room on a card that attachments do. Simple put the shared card link as a checklist item and it will convert it into a clickable link with the text being the card title. Then on the child card, you can put just one attachment back to the parent card. I'm not aware of any hierarchical way to link the due date though all the cards, so that part of your question is still a mystery (manual process) I'm afraid.

Hi @Lance 

welcome to this wonderful community!

Did you check out to link them all together using Attachment -> Trello -> choose card you want to connect and connect them vice versa 

Do this with all 5 cards and you can jump easily between them. 

Have a look at this gif from Trello here:


Hope this is a solution for you - feel free to ask for more help!

Oh I got your question wrong - you already got the linking together!

Than you would probably use the link solution which I, in my way, find uncomfortable. You may also wanna check out the option Butler offers - here is a super interesting article.
