Create Group If Does Not Exist Yet

Hi There. I am looking to set up an automation or workflow. This is how I’d like it to go:

  1. A new item is created via a form in one board
  2. Use the name of the new item to check for a group of the same name in another board
    3a. Opt A. If group exists, create new item in that group
    3b. Opt B. If group DOES NOT exist, create group and create item in this new group

Is something like this doable? I also use Zapier, so if there are options there I am open to it. Any guidance that can be provided is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi @cp40 :wave:

Thanks for your post!

I’m afraid it’s not currently possible to trigger the creation of a group based on an item name.
That said, I would love to hear more about your use case, to get a better understanding of your needs, and make better suggestions :slight_smile:
Are you able to expand a little on what you’re looking to achieve here and how this would help?

We can then see if there are any alternatives we can suggest!
