Automations within two boards

Hi all,

We have two boards (a design and a content board).
If the content department needs to have a ticket for a social post, there is an automation that (if the status is needed) a new item is created on the design board. We would really like to have a status field (which we can use in both boards) what we can use. If we make use of mirrored collumns in the design board, we can’t make automations in this board and the ticket never can be seen as ‘Done’ because this is not allowed with the mirror collumns. Is the new beta function something we can use, see photos? And how? Or can we do something else we can do?


Hey @sharonedc, I’m not sure if this will be helpful, but there are some recipes that can trigger from changes on mirror columns:

Hi @sharonedc,
You can easily achieve this with VLOOKUP.
Link your mirrored status columns to normal status columns on the same or across multiple boards.

Then create Automation using the new status column. The synchronization is seamless, so you don’t have to do it by hand.

Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to use automation on a mirrored column using VLOOKUP.
