Users can now connect formula-type columns across multiple boards while maintaining automation functionality, thanks to a recent update to VLookup.


Here’s a step-by-step tutorial for mirroring a formula column with VLookup:

Step 1

Check that VLookup is installed. If you don’t already have it, check this article on how to install it.

Step 2

Install the VLookup Board View on the target board.
Click on the + icon located below the board title in your source board.


Step 3

In the target board, generate a “TEXT or Number type column.” This column will link to the “Formula” column in the source board. The formula column can only be linked with columns of the Text or Number type, and not with any other type of column.

Step 4

Make a recipe and map the columns you want to connect. This can be done by going to your target board, VLookup board view and clicking on “Add new auto-link” From there, you can select the source and target boards and specify the columns to be connected.


  • Finally, save your changes and enjoy the benefits of a seamlessly integrated workflow between your boards.
