Favro is built out of the four core building blocks: Cards, Board, Collections, and Relations.

Relations ties cards, boards, and collections together because you can have the same cards and boards in different locations at the same time.


Purpose

  • Having the Relations column provides detailed information about where the card is, in what board/collection, and what its the current status.

  • It can also be used to monitor specific teams work or have the connection between different board status fields.


Design

You can have the Relations column in two different view, either the all boards or a specific board status relation:

  • All board filter gives you the locations and statuses of the card on different boards.

  • Specific board filter provides the wanted boards status with the option to change the status.


Features

  1. Add a card to a different board from the Relations column

  2. Rearrange board statuses in the All board filter option.

  3. Show archived Relations.

  4. Name Relation column after board filter that you have chosen.

  5. Update another board status from the Relation column


How to set up the Relation column

  1. Press the + sign and choose the Relation option on the board.

  2. Input the column Name, choose All boards or Specific board filter and press Create. (You can additionally choose to Show archived relations if need be.)


Practical examples

Example 1

A manager of two teams would like to overview what is happening on both teams boards from the Product Backlog board.

With the Relations column, the manager can view both teams work status on the Product Backlog board, without the need of checking the teams boards for updates.

Example 2

A development team is working on product feature releases. The release takes multiple teams to complete.

With the help of the Relations column we can see more clearly at what stage is the team with the tasks.

In this case, it is important to know if the task has been assigned to the DevOps team in order to continue working on it.

With the Relations column, we can add it to show which cards are added and what the status is on the DevOps teams board.

Now that we can see what tasks are assigned to the DevOps team, we can also assign new tasks for them and change their status from the main board view.

And these are just a few examples of how you can utilize the Relation column for your needs.
