Let’s say I have a board that has items such as this:
Now let’s give them a column and some column_values
Item 1 [Project A]
Item 2 [Project B]
Item 3 [Project B]
Item 4 [Project A]
Item 5 [Project A]
Item 6 [Project B]
Now lets say I have another board, that tracks the overall projects. Right now - it only has two items in it:
Is there a way for me to, by matching criteria of a column_value to an item name, push all items from my first board as subitems to my second board? In this scenario, the desired result would look like this, with “-” meaning sub-item:
I am considering writing a NodeJS script to do this for me - but before I begin I’m wondering if this is already possible and I’m just not seeing it? I’ve messed around with “When an item is created” → “create item in board & connect boards”. But it’s not really what I need as you can see. Furthermore, even if I did go that route - then I use the automation “When an item is moved to this board” → “Then create a subitem”… but this isn’t really what I’m looking for either.
Essentially - It’s a problem of one board being the database for another board.
Any suggestions or considerations please let me know.
