Mirror Column - Select Entire Board or Group

I’m happy to see that the new Mirror column solves some issues that I expressed in the past, but the one thing that’s keeping me from being able to use it is the fact that you have to explicitly choose every individual pulse from the other board in order to roll up something like budget or time.

Imagine a high/low-level board scenario, where the high-level board has a pulse-per-project, and there is a low-level board per project. You Link each respective board, then mirror & roll up the “Hours” column from the low level project board into a “Total Hours” column in the project pulse on the high-level board.

The issue here is that low-level boards are constantly changing. Employees have to add new tasks to them all the time, and it’s impossible and impractical to remember to go back into the high-level board and update the mirror column settings by selecting all of those new pulses, so the roll-up is accurate.

Feature Request: In addition to selecting individual pulses, can we please have “Entire Board” or “Group A”, “Group B” as selectable options in the mirror column settings? That way, we can add/remove tasks from the low-level board freely, and we know that the rollup is the sum of ALL of the tasks of interest, not just the ones that we remembered to select :wink:. This is especially dangerous if we’re using this roll-up to bill clients, where the total is at a high risk of being inaccurate all the time.

Related, time-roll-up isn’t actually possible, so this is a major, related limiting factor: Summarize Time from Mirrored Column

i support this 100%%%%%%%

Great idea, this is actually already possible in the dashboard but would be a great addition to boards as well.

Love it! Great idea.

YES…YES… and again … YES!
I have req this. I am working in 4 differens projects and would be sooo good for me to have everyhting in ONE board.

I really don’t understand how such simple spreadsheet functionality is missing on this platform. I was convinced to utilize this by an employee, but I’m having second (third, and fourth) thoughts on mobilizing to something else entirely. I’m unable to get high-level roll-ups without exporting all projects to excel and performing it myself. Simple things like summations utilized to calculate margins is child’s play and shouldn’t be difficult to add in.

This is perfect if I wanted to create a board that summarizes ALL of our boards.

I’d say the option to choose “Current Top Group” as the group of mirrored pulses would be amazing for my use case.
