Duplicate master columns to the sub-items

I want to duplicate the columns from the main item to the sub-item. I know that I can save each column as a template and add them to the sub-item column, but this is a really manual process. Is there a way/functionality to replicate the master columns to the sub-items with just a few clicks?

Hello @janelegall,

You can check out the Toolkit app, which allows you to easily copy and paste column values between boards.
In your case, select the main board and the subitem board. Subitem boards are named after the main boards, for example, if the main board is called “Board A”, the subitem board will be called “Subitems of Board A”.

If you need any help with the app, you can always write to support@kolaai.com

I am not trying to copy column values, rather column headings. It is time consuming to have to recreate the same column structure into the sub-items row

Hey Jane @janelegall ,

there is a nice new app out there that does exactly what you are looking for. It’s called Batch Hero for monday and has among other things the following feature:

  • Copy Column - easily transfer configurations from one board to others, ensuring a uniform layout across your workspace. Batch Hero supports all column types available on monday.com, providing you with a cohesive setup without the hassle of manual replication.

You also get other really great actions like Add Column and Delete Column across multiple boards.

Might be worth keeping an eye on. I think it will definitely help you with your first problem mentioned here. And best of all, it’s totally free.

Hope it helps!
