I see a lot of people asking for subtasks and what I want is not quite that. I am unsure if I’m using the Link and Mirror columns incorrectly.
I have a high board (strategic projects) and low board (tactical work items) and I was thinking I could use the Link function to establish a “bi-directional link” - a Link column on each board, linking to the other. The thought is that when someone is adding a tactical item, one of their columns would be to choose the strategic item it rolls up to. In doing that, back on the Strategic board, the “list of items” is automatically populated by the choices made on the tactical board. i.e, you could start to see all the down-level tactical items associated with that strategy.
In actual practice, I can make a link column (with mirror) on both sides, but they seem to operate independent of each other. The tactical board lists a strategy, but then I can go to the strategy board and see it’s blank (mirror column of status I’m pulling as well as “0 items”) and then I can select a completely independent set of tactical items on that same strategy.
Am I making sense / doing something wrong / trying something the tool isn’t capable of?
