I am having trouble linking two boards’ statuses using mirror columns, and want to know if what I want to implement is possible using Monday.com without any third-party applications.
What I want to do is:
1) When an item’s status is changed to “Review” on Board A, it creates a duplicate item on Board B.
2) Connect the boards somehow so that the two statuses can be linked
3) When status changes on Board B, change the status to be the same on Board A with one toggle.
This board’s purpose is essentially to create a to-do list so that a manager is able to see what items are ready for review. When they are finished reviewing, they would toggle the status on their board (Board B), and the status would automatically change on that specific item in the main board, Board A. Then the team is able to see that the item has been reviewed on Board A.
I am trying to minimize manual inputs but haven’t been able to get this to work. I’ve tried to use the automation that creates an item & connects the board automatically, but it doesn’t seem to behave the way I want it to. The connection will show up on Board A, but does not show up on Board B, so the process is still manual which I would like to avoid. The statuses aren’t actually “linked” in the way that I expected.
Any input on whether this is possible would be appreciated, thanks!
