How to use rails and sortable connected lists

Graeme Ellis asked in Rails

I'm trying to create sortable connected lists with a single modal. Two lists that I want to move items between and then display. I've successfully followed the video on sortable with a single list. Should I add a table column that tracks which list the item is in?

Summary, how should I record what list an item is in? and then of course how can I display the two list in a view?

I'm over my head on this one for sure 😆. 
Thanks for your help!
Hey Graeme, 

Did you see the Trello series? We cover moving between multiple lists in that. It'd be slightly different code since it's in Vue.js but the concept would be all the same. You would need a List model and association to keep track like you mentioned.
Thanks Chris! I'll check it out
