You can create card to card or card to item mirrors using the importer for cards that are already created in Placker. This is how you can set it up:

You should add the following 2 columns to your import excel when you want to create mirrors on import:

  • Mirror parent id -> This attribute should contain the mirror parent id (placker id), when you want to create a card -> card mirror, you should add the list id of the target list. When you want to create a card -> item mirror, you should add the card id of the parent card.
  • Mirror parent type -> This attribute contains the mirror parent type, 'LIST' when the parent id is a list, 'CARD' when it is a card.

And one optional attribute:

  • Mirror title pre text -> this attribute can be used when creating a card -> item mirror and you like to add text before the card title in the item.

How to create card -> card mirrors on import:

  • Export the cards of the board you like to create mirrors from.
  • Export the lists of the board you like to create mirrors to.

Now add the following two attributes to the card export excel:

  • Mirror parent type -> This should be populated with 'LIST', as you want to create card mirrors in a list.
  • Mirror parent id -> this should be populated with the target placker list id of the list you want to create the mirror card in.

How to create  card -> item mirrors on import:

  • Export the cards of the board you like to create mirrors from.
  • Export the cards of the board you like to create mirrors on.

Now add the following two attributes to the card export excel:

  • Mirror parent type -> This should be populated with 'CARD', as you want to create card mirrors in a card.
  • Mirror parent id -> this should be populated with the target placker card id of the card you want to create the mirror in.

Please note that the mirror will be created in the first checklist on the card, when the card does not have a checklist, the mirror will not be created.

In case you want to add text in front of the item title, you can use the 'Mirror title pre text' attribute in the import to set the text.
