Duplicate an item to multiple boards

Hi!
So, on Monday.com you can duplicate an item, you can move an item to another Board, but can you duplicate an item keeping the same title to multiple boards in one passage?
Doing the duplicating and the renaming (yes! Renaming! Because when you duplicate an item it gives it a different name from the previous) and the moving multiple times takes more or less as much as creating a brand new item in every board.
Thank you

No one shares my problem or have a solution here?

Hi @edoaber, do you mean you want to mirror the item? Or you want it to be a standalone item with just the same name?

In this partucual case I mean to duplicate an item to multiple standalone items and allocate them in multiple boards with just one operation.
It might be something like: select item>duplicate in board>drop down menu so that you can select multiple boards.

Ahh okay, I’m not quite sure how you could do that, but there could be a workaround. I hope you find your solution, and I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more help!

@edoaber Hello! Based on the above, you are able to move standalone items across different boards. Here is an article with the steps on how to select the item/s, move to specific boards and groups: How to move a group or an item – Support

Hope this helps answer your question!

Hi @edoaber :wave:

It look like this post here Duplicate an item to multiple boards - #6 by mhorton might have answered your question, is that correct?

If so, please don’t forget to mark it as the solution so other users can easily find it, and to close this thread :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi @Dani!
Yes the question was answered but my problem was not solved…
I know I can move items to other boards… I just’d like to directly copy it to multiple boards at once and not having to:

  1. Copy the item;
  2. Rename the item;
  3. Move the item to another board;
  4. Repeat 1, 2 and 3 for each board I want the item to be.

It’s too time consuming.

Hello @edoaber
You can use the Duplicates and Uniques app for your use case and copy to as many boards as you want. Just select the board you are interested in from the dropdown and the items will be copied over. You can even do it automatically when let’s say a new item is added using “templates”.

Here is a fairly comprehensive video that shows how the Copy functionality works.

Hey @edoaber :wave:

Have you already looked into creating automations that will create the item in another board when a specific action occurs? You can connect the items together as well if you’d like using certain recipes and The Connect Boards Column:

While you would need to create a recipe for each of the different boards you need to create a “duplicate” item in, as long as you have all the information mapped accordingly in the automation it will effectively be a “duplicate” of the original!

Otherwise, feel free to take a look at @kolaai 's response as well regarding the Duplicates and Uniques app!

I hope this helps! Remember to mark as solved if this answers your question :slight_smile:
