Planyway can help you manage cards from multiple Trello boards on one timeline or calendar. You don’t need to switch between different Trello boards anymore now that you can manage all your cards in one Planyway collection.

Connect boards and customize the calendar and timeline view

As you probably already know, you can create any number of collections in Planyway. And for each collection any number of Trello boards can be added.

Once you connect your Trello account to a collection, Planyway will prompt you to add boards. If you skip this step, you’ll be able to add boards later at any moment:

  • In the sidebar to the left, find and click +Connect boards. Pick the boards you’d like to add to a currently opened collection.

Note: You have the option to connect boards from different Trello workspaces.

  • You can filter cards from the connected boards to view only those assigned to you.

  • Moreover, you have the option to view all cards from all connected boards or to focus on cards from a single board at a time by clicking on the board's name.

  • Furthermore, you can customize the view using eye icons that allow you to hide or show cards from each board on the calendar or timeline.

Schedule cards from the connected boards

Each board can have its own set of lists with cards that need to be scheduled. To switch between tasklists/board panels of the connected boards, click on the drop-down menu at the top left of the tasklist/board panel.

Alternatively, when creating new cards on the timeline or calendar, you can choose which board they will be added to.

Tip: You can move cards between connected boards using the same drop-down menu.

Differentiate cards from the connected boards

To spot which board a card belongs to on the timeline or calendar, turn on the Board toggle in the View settings.

Group the timeline by Boards to visualize cards in the corresponding lane. Moving a card from one lane to another changes its assigned board.

Tip: Select boards to visualize in the Boards’ drop-down menu to the left of the timeline.
