A basic introduction to the Mirror Power-Up for Trello, a Unito tool that allows cards to exist on multiple boards simultaneously.
The Mirror Power-Up for Trello
Mirror is a Trello Power-Up created by Unito that allows you to duplicate cards between boards while keeping all their content synced. Essentially, it gives you the ability to have cards that live on multiple boards, so any update made on one version of the card is reflected everywhere it lives.
Delegate tasks to team members, send cards from a team board to a centralized project board, share cards with clients — the options are limitless! Mirror allows you to collaborate more efficiently and saves you from endless copying and pasting.
How Mirror works
The differences between Unito's Mirror Power-Up and Trello's Mirror cards
Trello's Mirror cards let you clone cards to multiple different Trello boards. Unito's Mirror Power-Up lets you copy cards from one board to any other board you have access to. At first glance, these are exactly the same, but there are some key differences
Trello's Mirror cards offer one-way updates. When you duplicate cards to other boards, the new clones can't be changed or updated to edit the original card. Only editing the original card will affect any others.
Unito's Mirror power-up lets you create a two-way flow of information between mirrored cards. That means you can make updates to either card and the other card will be affected.
Are you looking for increased visibility or better collaboration? For the former, Trello's mirror cards might be all you need. But only Unito's Mirror Power-Up gives you both.

What if you need to mirror whole boards?
The Mirror power-up for Trello is perfect for copying a card's information and sending it to another card. But what if you want to do this across an entire Trello board? Or maybe you need to get information from Trello into another work management tool, like Asana, Jira, GitHub, and more? That's where Unito's suite of Power-Ups comes in:
