make child cards visible on card details
the parent card list is a great new feature, but i find myself still listing out subcards in the main field, or worse, using dependencies to show the association.
having a child card section on the card details would greatly provide anyone working on a maintask with details of each related subtask.
this breakdown can be "Parent" and "Child". Similar to how "Before" and "After" dependencies are listed.
Please post feedback on the released feature here
Hans Dahlström: Ah, one immediate stumbling block is that we work in the kanban view only, and so there's no way to go into a card and add child cards. (With dependencies you can do this because there's the 'Add before' and 'Add after' buttons.)
I suppose I can workaround this by switching momentarily to sheets view, moving the cards underneath and indenting to create the parent-child relationship, and then switching back to the kanban view. But I think this will be too complex for anyone on the team except me to bother doing.
Edit--turns out I can't use the above workaround, because the Sheets view of our kanban is a bit of a mess. To be fair we may be using a kanban pattern that is not fully supported by Favro (swimlanes used to separate tasks by feature area), so maybe that is the root of the problem.

Hans Dahlström: wonderful! When can we see it? This urgently is needed :)
Merged in a post:
Sync child cards to all boards the parent card is on
Thomas van Maanen
I often break down cards into multiple child cards. When the parent card lives on multiple boards I then have to add all individual child cards to all boards so everyone has the same view. Also if someone later adds an additional child card it is only added on the particular board that user is looking at. This is really annoying because it depends on the board you're looking at if you have a full view of the child cards a card is broken into. I'd like to have an option to sync all child cards to all boards the parent card is on so that everyone is looking at the same thing.
This feature should be optional as sometimes only the parent map needs to be shared on other boards.
Latest design, soon to be released
Hans Dahlström: This looks great! Question: Will we have the option to show the list of children cards on the card in the kanban view, as is possible now with Dependencies? (See "Show on card" dialog below)
The use case: I want to see the status of each subtask of an epic without having to drill down into the card.
this is progressing with high priority
We have been "on" and "off" regarding this design, either a "Childrens" tab or something like below. Its different pros and cons. Any thoughts? The community seems to lean towards something more inline (not a childrens tab) as see it now

Hans Dahlström: Inline is really nice (this picture)
Hans Dahlström: need some way to view the card's relationship to both parents and children. Based on what's shown, it looks like those are just children. I would also want to be able to view parent cards
