How will card mirroring help?
To manage distributed work effectively, you need to split and distribute your work across boards and teams.
Card mirrors are the way to create a card copy on multiple boards and keep the cards synchronized and linked. This way cards are always in fully synchronized and it is easy to navigate between the cards.
Use this power-up to save time in keeping teams and cards updated.
Create a personal board to focus on your work
When your work is distributed across many boards, it is hard to understand what needs your attention. Use mirrors to your personal boards to track your cards in one place, and manage your cards from there.
Use board rules in Placker to automatically mirror cards on your personal board. Any time a card is assigned to you on a team board, the mirror will be created on your personal board. Any updates that are made on your personal board will be updated on the other boards as well.
Manage multiple teams from one master board
When work needs to be distributed across teams, it gets hard to stay aligned. Use card mirrors to distribute Trello cards (tasks) effectively across teams and streamline our collaboration.
Use board rules to automatically mirror cards to a team board when the card is assigned to the team list, this way everyone keeps the birds eye view from the master board while they manage their work from their own board
Run efficient meetings
Make sure to only discuss relevant topics that are kept up to date by mirroring cards directly from the relevant boards. Make it easy for anyone to raise topics and resolve them effectively. Focus on what is important, stop spending time on outdated actions and make your meetings more relevant and effective.
Use board rules to automatically raise cards to the team meeting when the status is updated to 'red' or a 'meeting' label is attached to the card, this way cards will automatically be put on the agenda, and removed from teh agenda when the topic is no longer relevant.
Manage high level and detailed work packages
Work will have different levels that need to be managed. Either from a portfolio to a project, from a backlog to tasks or from main tasks to subtasks in general. Turn checklist items into cards to manage different levels effectively and keep your data synchronized and linked.
Effectively manage and review each level and navigate across them with ease. Use board rules to automatically creating the card mirrors from checklist items when users are assigned.

How does the Trello card mirror Power-Up work?
Card mirrors are card copies that stay synchronized
A mirrored card is a card that is copied across another board where an update on one card is updated on the copied card as well (and visa versa). You can copy cards to multiple boards and create a mirror group.
Placker also makes the link between the mirrored cards visible so it is easy to navigate across the cards on different boards and make it clear the cards are mirrored, or part of the mirror group.
Use board rules in Placker to automatically create mirrors, for example create a mirror when a card is in a certain list, the card has an assigned tag or when a member is assigned to a card or checklist item.
Use card to card or card to checklist item mirrors
You can create a mirror between a cards, where one card is copied to another board and stays synchronized. This is extremely useful when the same tasks need to be shared with other teams/stakeholders.
You can create a mirror between a checklist item and a card, where the checklist item on one card is mirrored to a card on another card, which allows you to break down your work or delegate work items effectively.
