Is it possible to allow for cards to be linked?

For example, when a feature becomes a saga and therefore the card generates its own "board" (perhaps in a different organisation—if the feature is being "outsourced") such that the smaller components of the feature appear on that.

Yes, you can! All you have to do is type #xx where xx is the card number - as far as I know you can do this anywhere that you input text - I have tested it in descriptions and comments.

For example you might have something like this in a card description:

See also:

- Card #23 (Tidy shed)
- Card #4 (Clear out garage)
- Card #45 (Do that other thing)

The #xx will appear as a link to the referenced card.

Note that the card reference is working only in the same board, it is not cross-board

But what if my board is not English? It will appear as Card #20. Ok, You should not start a paragraph with #, because it will be interpreted as a header. – pihentagy Jan 30 '14 at 15:49
@pihentagy Spanish: Tarjeta #23 Greek: κάρτα #23 Swedish: kort #23 - you get the idea. It doesn't matter what your text says, the #23 gets automatically converted to a link. – jhabbott Jan 30 '14 at 20:07
Ok, figured out ITMT, and commented the following (maybe forgot to submit), that the only gotcha is that if the first character in the paragraph is hashmark, then it will be interpreted as header. And you cannot customize the link title. – pihentagy Jan 31 '14 at 8:26

Yes it is possible to link individual cards and even move a card between boards.

To find a card's link:

  1. Open the card (press Enter).
  2. Click the More... link at the bottom of the right side panel.
  3. You should see a text box containing the link.

To move a card:

  1. Open the card (press Enter).
  2. Click the Move... button in the right side panel.
  3. Choose your board and Click Move.

I recommend the Trello Shortcuts Plus Chrome Extension to copy the global card link with a shortcut key.

I think will do this. Just do a trello to trello Zap.
