I know this is probably a very basic question, and if I had more time I’d hunt for the answer more thoroughly, but I’m trying to convince my bosses to use Monday.com and I have a demo with them tomorrow.
The thing I can’t figure out with Automation is how to have a due date column that is set for the day that the automation is activated. That is, I set up automations two weeks ago, to add new sub-tasks to a task that was created. Each sub-task has a due-date field. I set those fields to “Today” but they just retained the day that I created the automations. So when I created a new task today, the sub-tasks all filled in a due date of two weeks ago (the day I created the automations).
It seems like it must be possible to have the automation set the due-date in an automatically-created sub-task to be the day that the automation runs (or even “today + x days”) but I can’t figure out how to make this happen. I only have the ability to select a specific date when I set up the automation rules.
Can anyone point me to the documentation to resolve this? If not, I’m going to have a really hard time selling this product internally.
