I have a list of organizations I’m tracking in a single board. I wanted to create a “Competitor” column and connect other items/entries on the same board within this column. I used the dependency column type to achieve this but the issue with this approach is I can’t connect the competitors on the same entries without creating a circular dependency issue…but I’m not really using it for dependencies, so I’d like to have the ability to just connect other items like you can do from another board.
Have you tried to use a connect boards column and connect to the same boards? It has (almost) the same look and feel as the dependency column except that it does do dependency circular dependency checking.
Should’ve thought to just try this but figured you couldn’t use a connect boards column to connect to the same board you’re on. Thanks Bas!
That’s weird. I know there was a time when this was not possible, but in both of my account I can perfectly select the board where I created the connec_boards column to itself. See this little Loom Loom | Free Screen & Video Recording Software | Loom

As it should have! There are many “depends on” scenarios that aren’t timeline related. Such as a list of services and which depends on which to function correctly - and can be mutually dependent on each other.
