2. Use the VLookup dashboard to set up your recipe. This is where you can establish connections between columns and determine which triggers you’d like based on desired actions.
Let’s establish a connection between your boards’ data. Begin by selecting your source board and target board, as well as a unique key value that will serve as a matching criterion between the items on these boards.
Source Board: This board contains the data you wish to link to the target board.
Target Board: This is the board where you want data to auto-populate when the specified auto-link conditions are met.
Key Source Value and Key Target Value: The key value you choose must be unique. When the Key Source Value matches the Key Target Value, it will trigger the auto-linking process and populate the linked column data.
Conditions: You have the option to incorporate conditions into your linked columns. For example, you can specify that when specific status or label criteria are met, VLookup will initiate the linking process.
Force Update: Enabling this option will compel the source and target columns to link when the key value is matched.
