Move Item to Board

Is there a way to move an item to a different board using the API? I’ve found a way to move it to a different group but not a different board.

Hey @darren :wave:

Our API does not currently support moving an item between boards. Only between groups on the same board.

With that said, there’s a couple workarounds you might implement:

1 - Login to monday.com and set up an automation so that on status change, the item will move to a different board. (This will then retain the same Item ID on both boards.)

This will require a bit of setup within the UI, but you can then trigger the automation by changing the status column via API.

2 - Query the item’s relevant columns, create a new item on another board using those same column values, then archive or delete the original item. (This will not retain the same Item ID on both boards)

Might one of those options work for you? :slight_smile:

Thanks for the response. We’ve been using option number 2 and it works.

Thanks

I could really use this feature. Currently we use the automation to move all of our “done” design work to a “done” group and then move all of these to a board at the end of the month. Ideally i’d like to be able to set an automation for when a status changes to move the item to a different board.

Hey @samtoms :wave:

I will definitely add this as a feature request to our roadmap, as I’m sure there are others who would benefit from this being an option within the API. That said, we do have a feature just like that in our automations already:

Is that not working out for you in your workflow? Please let me know so we can assess the positive impact that this feature would have for our users. :slight_smile:

Hi @AlexSavchuk you’re quite right! I looked for it several times but just missed it. Got it and it works perfectly. Thank you!
