Teamhood allows you to set and track dependencies between items in the same workspace. This means that you can set dependencies between items held in the same or different boards. There are 4 item relation types which you will find:

This is the most fundamental building block of any larger task or project. You will breakdown bigger things into smaller things by using child item relation type. The best thing is that you can have as many levels of child items as you like! While Kanban view is the most comfortable for up to 3 levels of hierarchy, Gantt and List views are capable to display all of them. You can add child items right from the parent item card or open item details and continue from there.
⚠️ You cannot detach child items and still keep the relation. If you will convert child item into a standalone parent item card, it will loose the relation to original parent.
There are 2 ways to set dependencies in Teamhood – by connecting dependent items with arrows or in work item details.
Add items that must be finished before the current item can start to the Waiting on section. These items will be shown with a yellow exclamation point.
Add items that are waiting for this item to be finished to the Blocking section. These items will be shown with a red block sign.
Once a dependent item is complete, the symbol next to it will turn into a green checkmark.
As mentioned, Teamhood allows you to set item dependencies between different boards in the same workspace. The most convenient way to do that is by using the Timeline or Workload views.
Here you can conveniently see items from all boards categorized by the boards or by the assignees. To make dependency management even more convenient, you can filter out unnecessary information and minimize the boards which you do not want to see. Thus leaving only the important information in your view.
For those using item dependencies, we recommend turning on the feature to ‘Auto-schedule dependant items’. Once this feature is turned on, and you change the schedule of an item with dependencies, the schedule of those dependent items is automatically adjusted. So, if one item is running late, your project plan and duration adjusts automatically.
This feature can be found in Workspace settings.
The most advanced and most powerful relation type – synced copies. It will allow you to connect items between different workspaces and keep the data synced.
The best example is – you have a project portfolio workspace where only top level project milestones or stages are present. But then you want to delegate each milestone to a separate team which works in a separate workspace. Synced copies to the rescue! You will simply copy any item and move it to another workspace. Once it get’s finished or updated in that workspace – information will circle back to the original item (root). Try it for yourself!
💡 Ultimate plan subscribers can configure which item fields get copied and which ones are synchronized.
