The Link to Board column

The link to board column allows you to easily link a column to the pulses of another board. Keep reading to learn how it works! 👇

 Note: This column does not create any kind of dependencies between pulses. Dependencies might be something we will implement in the future. You can check out this article for some workarounds for now.

 

How to add it?

To add it, click on the + icon located on the top right of your board and select "column center".

Step 3

Once done, click inside one of the cell and pick the pulse you want to connect from the other board to your current board. For example, I want to connect the Caramel Cupcakes to the Client number 1.

Wherever you click on your column, you will see all pulses of the board you have connected the column to. It makes it super easy to then link pulses from your board to another board.
