Automatically add new items to connect boards column on High Level Project

I am working on putting together a high-level project board. I’ve followed guides from Monday.com and it is coming together nicely. That said, I’ve run into a snag. Each item in the high-level project board (i.e. “All Projects”) is linked to a board that represents the fine details of that project (i.e. “Project 1,” “Project 2,” etc). While working with this low-level project board, a project manager may add additional tasks as they see fit.

I want to be able to see the consolidated statuses of all of the low-level project tasks in a single column for each item in the high-level project board. I read that this can be done via mirroring. I was able to implement this, but it looks like this does not get updated automatically when new items are added to the low-level project boards.

Is there another way to include a consolidated “Status Overview” to the items listed in the “All Projects” board that shows the statuses of all tasks within the corresponding low-level project boards, including any items that may be added in the future?

This is indeed a missing functionnality: an “All Items” or “All Items from Group […]” when we choose what items are to be mirrored, so that we don’t have to come back and manually add items (that we might not even know of, if the actual projects are run by other people).

Hi @zchunter

Currently, it’s not possible to have new items be automatically added to the link on your high level project board, I’m afraid.

I can definitely appreciate how this would be a useful addition to have new items automatically link, or to have the ability to select certain logic (such as ‘All items’ as @Marc1 suggested) for the linkage.
I can appreciate how this would imrove platform for yourself, and I’m sure for other teams too, so I would highly recommend opening a thread in our Feature Request section.

Here other users who would also like this added to the platform will be able to upvote the feature!
