How can i retrevie subitems from a board A to board B?

When status changes in board A, I need to create an element in a new board B and connect both boards. I use an automation and setup the item’s creation but I can’t retrieve subitems.

Have you any methode to retrieve subitems from the element of board A to the new element in board B ?

Hello I have the same Issue.
I’m trying to use the automatization:

When an item is created in a group, create a new item in another board an connect both boards…
But the item created in the new board doesn’t bring the subitems…
Is there any way to do this?

Hey @DeniseCookUnity,

I am afraid this is expected behaviour at this time. Currently subitems will follow the item only when items are moved across boards, not created. I do apolgoize for the inconvenience here. To get this to work, I’d advise setting up an automation that duplicates the item, and moves the (duplicated) item to the new board - the subitem will move across with the item. You could set up a status column, or even a button column to trigger the automation. I understand this is not the most ideal process, and will ensure this feedback is shared with our product team.

Thank you in advance for your understanding!
