I run a wholesale company where we buy in large volumes from suppliers then re-sell online. We use a Monday board called “CRM” to store the details of all of our 50+ suppliers (including of course name).
We have another board called “Inbound” where we track shipments of our confirmed orders. Currently, we have a column called “Supplier” in this board where staff will manually enter each supplier’s name (first column in the image below).
However, staff often enter names wrong and this causes complications in other processes. So as a solution, I have used the “Connect boards” option to connect this “Inbound” board to the “CRM” to pull the supplier names so these can be selected via a drop down instead of manually entered (CRM always has the names 100% correct). You can see this in the “Central CRM” column in the image below.
Overall, I just want to achieve the end result of having the Connected Board as the column to represent suppliers. At the moment, as you can see, I have two columns for supplier. Of course I can just clear all the names in the first column but this column is not deletable. How can I ensure this column isn’t showing or ensure the Connect Boards column (“Central CRM” column) is the first column on the list?
