I am trying to copy the value of a mirrored People column to another People column and it doesn’t appear to be working.
I am using General caster to do this ’ when any column changes perform formula (Item’s assigned) and cast result to People.’ Could anybody help me understand why this isn’t working please?
Our partner WorkPerfect has an app that copies the content of a mirror column to a real column of the same type. You can contact @Kimb for details.
Hi @declan.maher, please email me at email@example.com. Our app will be able to solve this problem for you : )
FYI there is a way of doing this in Monday.com without using an app.
Create an automation for the following:
“When an item is created Assign (replace)(Assigned) As People”
Assigned is a mirrored column.
Hope this helps someone!
@declan.maher how did you set up that automation exactly? When I use the “Then do this” action of “Assign person” the only options I see for that middle part are board subscribers, not other columns.
@declan.maher That automation would work perfectly, except (Assigned) doesn’t allow for selection of a column, it’s looking for a specific person.
