Connect to Existing Cards

LeanKit's step-by-step guide on how to connect to existing 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 an Existing Card:

  • Open the desired parent card and go to the Connections tab of the card's details. Click Connect to Existing Cards.

      • Click on the title of the existing card you want to make a child of the parent you just came from and click Connect. That card is now a child card.
      • Click Done to go back to the parent card details.
    • Clicking On Another Board will bring up a searchable list of cards on all the boards you have access to in this account.
      • By default the list is searching all boards to which you have access. Click on All Boards to use the search box to search for or select a particular board from which to choose cards.
