Assignee removal from mirror column

Hello monday.com Community,

I need some assistance with a specific automation setup between two boards. I am mirroring a People column from a low-level board to a high-level portfolio board, which are connected via a Connect Boards column. My goal is to achieve the following:

  1. When the assignee is removed from the mirrored People column in the high-level board, the corresponding item in the low-level board should be automatically deleted.

Could someone guide me on how to configure this automation? Any advice or examples would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

The problem here is that monday does not trigger automations on the removal of people!

There is a workaround involving make.com since a “webhook” for column change will trigger. I won’t go into the specifics, unless you are interested in pursuing that path since its not trivial to explain.
