Trello Card Dependencies is a productivity tool that allows you to configure and track dependencies between tasks in your projects. At a glance, Trello Card Dependencies tells you what tasks are dependent upon each other, what tasks are blocking progress, what tasks are complete or still to do and determine your critical path to completion. All the tasks and workflows are easily visualized at a glance and new insights into your project milestones and potential pitfalls are discovered through our interactive displays. Define your Dependencies: Configure dependencies in your Trello or Trello Card Dependencies view easily through our two-click task dependency feature. Determine The Critical Path: Instantly isolate the routes to successful completion of your project by exposing the critical tasks and understanding how best to plan your roadmap. See Why Your Project Isn't Moving Forward: Easily isolate problem areas that are otherwise hard to find through rich, interactive displays of your tasks and their dependencies. Anticipate Potential Roadblocks: Spot areas of complexity before they become problems through meaningful displays and interactive scenario planning. Visually Communicate Issues and Complexities to Your Stakeholders: Communicate your project to friends, colleagues and customers with intuitive and interactive displays of your project that make those difficult to explain problems crystal clear. If you like Trello Card Dependencies or have feedback, please reach out to us. More features and polish are on the way plus some exciting examples of the power of Trello Card Dependencies.

  • (2017-07-20) Ramzi BEN SALAH: Not working
  • (2017-06-11) A.J. Campomizzi: Sorry but this extension is frankly garbage. Completely non-functional. Only ever pulls up one list or card, can't add any dependencies or cards to the view at all. Too bad because dependencies is a ridiculous gap in Trello.
  • (2017-06-02) Michael Chang: This extension truly is god awful. Good intention; horrible implementation. Why is everything springing around like a demo scene? Who are you trying to impress? Why does it auto generate a mess of a dependency graph right from the beginning? Why do notes overlap on top of each other making it hard to read? Why is there a huge flashing animated arrow pointing to the project like my project is imploding? Why does it require two clicks to remove a dependency? Simply.. why? Was any thought put into this? Does the author actually use this POS?
  • (2017-04-30) Arty Folei: U mě se tohle rozšíření ani nerozběhlo, žádný loading neproběhl. Klikám na "show dependencies" a nic (a PC mám velmi slušný tower) :(
  • (2016-08-18) David Rojas Elbirt: We need to show dependencies among cards that are located in different boards. Is it possible to give this option? We have a "meetings" board, and several boards connected to different areas in our company, and also a "Ticket#" board to start any task (it helps us to monitor projects from all boards, a ticket #). Could you make it go multiple boards?
  • (2016-07-14) Peter O'Connor: This is a really nice way of adding a feature that Trello was completely missing.
  • (2016-06-24) jaco kruger: Small improvements can be made, like anchoring. But for the rest, does what it says on the box ;)
  • (2016-04-28) BUZZ ROYALE: Worked for me. After I installed it, I noticed its a sensitive addon. So I can't do certain things with it, like move cards around all willy nilly without first checking to see if I messed the dependencies. Makes this difficult to use and very delicate. However since it's the only version of its kind, It's by far hte best flow chart type addon that integrates with Trello, which already is an amazing program.
  • (2016-02-05) V S: I don't understand the people saying this app worked for them. I've tried private and public Trello boards and always get stuck on the "Loading" screen, never seeing any cards appear to assign dependencies to. If you've managed to get this app to work at all for you, please post a guide of how. Even if buggy it could be useful but right now it seems to just not work at all.
  • (2015-11-29) Elizabeth Henning: This is not a five-star extension, but I rated it high because it doesn't deserve the hate it's gotten. It fills a real need and I'm grateful to the developer for posting it. It *does* work, although it is rather primitive and buggy. (If you can't figure it out, check YouTube for the three-minute tutorial.) Two obvious requests: (1) Please let me pick list names and colors for the color-coding, because the default is useless. (2) I don't know whether D3.js will do this, but please make the moving arrows stop. I could do without all the bouncing around also.
  • (2015-10-19) Sashi meduri: I did not find the app after it got installed.
  • (2015-10-05) Maorie Light: doesnt work
  • (2015-09-08) Michael Friedrich: Same for me. I get some cards cluttered together but cannot select them...
  • (2015-08-24) Andrew Darmawan: WHY IS IT NOT WORKING???
  • (2015-07-15) James Bowery: A lot of SCRUM advocates claim dependency tracking should be avoided, but it seems to me that one of the key strengths of Trello SCRUM is that each card can be a task that takes on the order of one day. This means if you want a work-breakdown structure, the way you do it is to replace the work hierarchy of tasks with a directed network of day-sized tasks. Trello Card Dependencies enables this within SCRUM. My only complaint, and it is a major one, is the following bug: Frequently a card in the dependency graph will _appear_ to be duplicated at another point in the graph, which, in actuality, the other point in the graph should represent a different card -- the title of which is replaced by the apparently duplicated card. It also appears that clicking on a node in the graph isn't bringing up the card (if that's what its supposed to do), so its hard to verify the prior sentence's hypothesized cause of the phenomenon. This happens repeatably and, it seems, inevitably. If money is an issue there should be some mechanism by which people can fork the project or, failing that, contribute money toward bug fixes.

  • (2019-11-28, v:1.6) Alex Nesbitt: No longer supported
    Hello, I used your app a few years ago and it was great. I have just reinstalled and tried opening my old board (with all the dependency comments from previous) but sadly no longer works.
  • (2018-08-01, v:1.6) S Mahmod: Nothing in dependency
    I have added your extension. But I cannot see any dependency or add any. How am I supposed to set it up? do you have a user guide?
  • (2018-05-25, v:1.6) Marco Reis: we fixed somethings in this extension
    Try to keep a new from here -https://github.com/margareteneves/Trello-Card-Dependencies - we are ongoing to try get a update for this.

  • (2018-04-18, v:1.6) tCubed: Just Doesn't Work
    I cannot add any dependencies to any card. I even opened in in cognito to ensure no other extensions were interfering Console error says "Uncaught TypeError cannot read property trim"
  • (2018-01-05, v:1.6) Susannah Calandruccio: How to delete
    Hello. I would like to delete the "Show/Hide Dependencies button from the top of my Trello Board. How do I do this? I was trying to use Trello Card Dependencies, but it wasn't working. So I tired to get rid of it. I deleted the code, but the button remains. I want to delete the button. Thank you!
  • (2017-09-27, v:1.6) Julià Pontnou: No cards on the Dependence wiew
    No loading, no cards. Only blank board...
  • (2017-09-10, v:1.6) Eduardo Sanchez: Loading to infinitum
    Loading to infinitum
  • (2017-05-07, v:1.6) Ben Lindsay: Dependency graph won't load anymore
    Everything was working as expected for a while, now suddenly all that shows is "Loading" when I click "Show/Hide Dependencies". I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and even deleting all the DependsOn() comments to go back to a dependency-less setup, and still nothing. What do I do?
  • (2017-04-11, v:1.6) Hiding cards from the dependency view
    Hi! Great Add-in! But I organize some information (for example meeting minutes) as cards (with comments, links to google docs, or whatever relevant info), but are not in fact Tasks, so it would be great to hide them out of the Dependency view to focus only of Tasks Cards. Regards
