Ability to Connect Subitems to Subitems Removed

It looks like it is no longer possible to select subitem boards when creating a connect boards column. Therefore, it is no longer possible to connect subitems to subitems.

Is this a permanent change? When did this happen? WHY?

Hey @JCorrell! I’ve chatted with my team, and from my understanding the platform never offered the ability to connect subitems directly to subitems, the Connect Boards column only allows you to connect from subitems to items in an alternate board.

One way you can work around the limitation of not being able to connect subitems to subitems is to roll the subitems of one or both boards up to the items via a Subitem Summary column, and then connect them on an item-level - I do however recognise this isn’t an ideal way to fulfil this function.

That said, I’ll follow up internally to see whether any changes are coming in the near future.


Thanks for the response.

Whether or not subitem could connect to subitems in the past, this would be very helpful.

Hey @Jonatas! It doesn’t look like the request exists from what I can see, so feel free to create your own post to get some votes behind it :raised_hands:

How do you connect from subitems to items with the connect boards column? I inconsistently see “Subitems of xxxx board” when trying to choose the subitems as the connection

Hey @sarahtireagent!

Just to check, are you saying that when you set up a connect boards column in the subitems, you’re given the option to connect to the subitems in a secondary board?

I ask this as currently you should only be able to connect subitems to items. If you have a screenshot that would be helpful! :slight_smile:
