Finding Items on a Board that have a Subitem connected to Board "X"

Hello. I hope you are doing well!

I have a board with items that represent products. Each of the subitems of a product contains a URL to a place we can purchase the product. Each subitem also has a field with the name of the supplier, which is setup as a connected board column which connects to the suppliers board.

I am trying to filter the products so that I only see products that have a subitem connected to a specific supplier via the connected boards column. According to the Subitems product plan published by, subitems filtering is not currently supported. I tried just searching the board with the supplier name, which is supported, but it seems the value displayed in a column to a connected board is not included as searchable text.

At this point the only thing I can think to do is create another column on the subitem that somehow grabs the value of the the supplier name from the connected board column and converts that so a searchable string. This would not be ideal, particularly because hiding columns in subitems is not currently supported.

Is this my best shot though, or are there other possible solutions?
