Remove Connections

LeanKit's step-by-step guide on how to remove card connections. 

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 Remove a Connection:

In LeanKit you can remove card connections as easily as you can create them. There are multiple ways to remove card connections. You can remove card connections within the parent or child card OR by right-clicking on the parent or child card.

Remove Connections Within the Parent Card

To remove all connections from within a parent card:

  • Click on the face of the parent card you would like to remove the connections from. This will open the card’s details.
  • Click on the Connections tab.
  • Click Remove connection from the bottom right-hand corner

All of the connections for the selected card will be removed.

Remove Connections Within the Child Card

You may decide you only want to remove specific child-card connections from the parent card. One easy way to accomplish this is by removing connections from within a selected child card.

To remove a connection within the child card:

  • Click on the child card you would like to remove the connection from.
  • In the Details tab, to the right of the Size field, select the Parent Card dropdown menu.

  • From there, select No Association.

This will remove only this specific child card from the parent card it was originally assigned to.

Remove Connections by Right-Clicking on a Parent Card

In Leankit you can remove connections by right-clicking on the parent card OR the child card you would like to remove the connections from.

To remove connections by right-clicking on a parent card:

  • Right-click on the face of the parent card you would like to remove the connections from.
  • Select Existing Connections from the context menu.

  • Select Remove Connection.
  • Then select which board you would like to remove card connections from.

This will remove all of the existing connections between this parent and its children on the board you have selected.

Remove Connections by Right-Clicking on a Child Card

You may decide you only want to remove specific child-card connections from the parent card. One easy way to accomplish this is by removing connections from right-clicking on a selected child card.

To remove connection by right-clicking on a child card: 

  • Right-click on the face of the child card you would like to remove the connection from.
  • Select Quick Edit from the context menu.
  • Select Set Parent Card.
  • Then select No Association.

This will remove only that specific child card from whichever parent card it was assigned.
