How To Link Cards Between Boards In Trello

Moving between cards on various Trello boards can be challenging when handling intricate projects. Nonetheless, were you aware that you have the ability to connect cards across boards, streamlining your project management procedure? This tutorial will steer you through the process of linking cards between boards on Trello.

Step 1: Open the Card

First, we need to open the card that we wish to link to another board. Click on the card to open it and navigate to the comment section.

Step 2: Get the Card’s URL

Every card in Trello has a unique URL, which is found in the browser’s address bar when the card is open. Simply copy the URL from the browser.

Step 3: Paste the URL into the Desired Card

Go to the other board where you wish to link this card. Open the desired card and paste the URL in the comment section. As a result, Trello will automatically create a link to the other card.


Ensure that the board you are linking to is public or the users you wish to access the link have appropriate permissions. Otherwise, they won’t be able to access the card.

There you have it! You have successfully linked a card between boards in Trello. This feature is extremely useful for cross-referencing tasks or linking related tasks together across different boards. Try it out next time you are managing a complex project in Trello and see how it streamlines your workflow.

The URL linking method we used above is a simple way to link cards in Trello. However, there are also other methods available that offer more advanced features. One such option is to use the Trello Power-Up called CardSync. This Power-Up allows you to link cards between boards in a way that when you update one card, the other linked card gets updated automatically. Here is a quick guide on how to use CardSync:

Using CardSync to Link Cards

Step 1: Enable CardSync Power-Up

Go to the board where you want to link cards and click on the Show Menu button, then click on the Power-Ups button.

Step 2: Install and Enable CardSync

In the Power-Ups menu, find CardSync and click on the Enable button. Now CardSync will be available for use in your Trello board.

Step 3: Link the Cards

Open the card you want to link from another board. Click on the CardSync button and select the Link option. Now, you need to paste the link of the other card you want to link to. Once you have pasted the link, click on the Link button.

So, next time you manage a project on Trello, don’t forget to use this handy feature to link cards and streamline your workflow.
