Hello,

I'm looking at Kanban Boards to satisfy the following type of workflow:

Have an asset management system & database, from which assets are kept synced as cards, with their info. Modifying this info in either system results in changes to the other. What would be ideal would be to sync the Assets from the database to a kanban board as assets. The assets could be synced into multiple "Boards" based on at least locations, but maybe other types of categories as well. Do you think this would be able to be made in to life with the API

Now to the real feature request:
The above would make possible keeping cards of assets and linking them to other cards/tasks. In the current demo it only seems to be possible to have cards associated one-way, where as what I would like to see being able to see an associated card from either card, to be able to determine asset or task location based on either.

Also an additional feature would be to link also the name of the card as well as the card number, which seems to be the only thing added currently.

Is such a request in the realms of possibility?

See Example here:
http://board.demo.restya.com/#/board/936/card/8682,8681

From card #8682 I can see both Asset-named cards #8683 and #8681, but they are not associated or cannot be seen from the Asset #1 or #2 cards #8683 or #8681

Of course this can be achieved manually, but what I need is for it to be automatic after a "child" card is added to a parent.

@rkantos Perhaps you're looking for checklist?

@rkantos Perhaps you're looking for checklist?

Absolutely not since a checklist has no relation to anything. The thinking behind it is being able to see if an asset is in use in a specific task. From the task I want to see which assets are included in the task. Again, sure this could be done manually, but I need it to be automatic 👍
