With Placker's parent-child cards, you can establish a hierarchical relation between cards. While summary tasks can have subtasks as checklist items, they will be visible as separate cards at the same time. The representation below shows "Child A.1", which is at the same time a card and an item in card "Parent A".

By using the new parent-child feature, these are some of the awesome things that you will be able to do:

  • Easily create create and link parent and child cards

  • Navigate between cards in both levels

  • Analyze cards according to the parent structure in the track view

  • Identify groups of cards that are connected to each other in the board view where layout is by parent

In case you are not familiar to item-to-card mirroring, it's a tool you can use to deal with tasks in two levels: summary tasks and subtasks. The recordings below will show you how you create this kind of card hierarchy:

Navigate to parents and children with one click from the card overview:

When set, the parent card title is visible on the front of the card to understand the context. The parent card link is available on the top of the card. Checklist items that are linked as children have an 'Open card' button to navigate to the child card.

Analyze cards according to the parent structure in the track view

The parent card title can be used in the track view, for example to show the number of cards per parent. Or use a parent card picker to zoom in to a specific parent.

Show cards by parent in the flexible layout

Use the flexible layout to split or list your boards by parent card. This works for single board and board group views.

Easily create create and link parent and child cards:

We added buttons to create parent and child cards from the back of the cards or by dragging and dropping cards into checklists.
