Step 3

Once connected, clicking inside any cell in the column will reveal the pulses from the other board (clients's board). Pick the pulse you want to connect to from the other board. For example, I want to connect the Caramel Cupcake to the Client 1.

Next to each cupcake, we will now have the name of the client that ordered it. That's not it! Keep reading below to discover more amazing stuff! 👇 

What is the pop-up view?

Once you have linked the pulses between the 2 boards, clicking on any cell in Board 1, in our example, the  "cupcakes" board. It will open a card showing all of the information from the linked pulse in Board 2 "Clients" , as shown below.

You can update any information about the client directly from the cupcake board. This will automatically update the client's board. 

The pulse pop-up view has also been released for "my week" and "the KanBan view". 

How to unlink a column?

Click on the arrow located on the right of your column's title and select column settings as below:

Both your board and column will then be unsynchronized. 

 Note: Once you click on "detach link" all the previous links added in your column will be cleared.
