Connect to New Cards

LeanKit's step-by-step guide on how to connects to new cards. 

In LeanKit, you can create parent-child Connections between cards. This makes it easier to track and manage the progress of work distributed across multiple teams. Once you’ve established parent-child Connections between cards, statistics at the parent card level help you quickly assess the progress of child cards and identify potential problems.

Different editions of LeanKit include different Connection abilities:

  • Advanced and Premium Edition accounts can connect to cards on the same board, and cards on multiple other boards.
  • Select Edition accounts can connect to cards on the same board, and to cards on one other board.
  • Lite and Standard Edition accounts cannot connect cards

To Connect to a New Card:

Open the desired parent card and go to the Connections tab of the card's details. Click Connect to a New Card.
