VLOOKUP Auto-link is a monday.com app that helps keep data across multiple boards aligned while saving the time of manual linking and keeping you safe from data alignment errors.
Setting up VLOOKUP Auto-link is easy. Just install the app on your monday.com account, add our integration and start mapping the columns you would like to auto-link.
Auto-link App app consists of 2 integrations you’ll need to install on a source board and Target boards for logging source board activity (New items, Item edits, deletions and additions) – and a board view that is installed on the target board for mapping auto-links between boards. Once integrations is installed and columns are mapped, columns on the source board will be automatically linked to the columns on the target board.
The app is free to evaluate with one mapping recipe that will let you auto-link a column between two boards. Once you decide to use it for more columns and boards you’ll need to purchase a monthly subscription.
A monthly subscription cost is $49 for unlimited usage within your monday.com account. You’ll get 2 months free if you purchase the annual plan.

Source boards are the boards you store the source data you want to link to your target boards.
Yes! Auto-link lets you link multiple boards data to one board and multiple columns data between multiple boards. For example, when you want to calculate the cost of human resource in a project you can pull cost per hour of people that participated in the project from one board and number of hours each put from another board.
To be able to create a cross board Auto-link between dropdown columns you’ll need to re-create the drop time items in the target boards.
When linking between status columns and drop down columns, these columns content is not reflected in the target boards unless you’ll recreate same statuses and dropdown items you have in the source boards.
To link Statuses and drop down lists you will need to create the same drop down or statuses in the target board when you set-up the auto-links.
