Create total number of subitems based on an item number column

I’d like to know if there is a way of creating subitems based on a number column when a status changes. The total number of subitems created should be the same as the number column and the number column can be any number. For example if an item has a number column with value 3, the automation should create 3 subitems; if the number column is 2, the automation should create 2 subitems.
Is it possible to achieve this is one automation whitout having multiple automations as the number column is not predefined.


Do you have a known range of numbers? like 1-5 or could it be 1-200 (which i think is the subitem limit)

Hey @bibujakera

We developed an app called subitem automations that’s solves this use case.
Here’s how it works -

You can either use you’re existing status column or if needed you can create a new status column with numbers and just create an automation for each status. Something like - “When status changes to 1, create 1 subitem”, “When changes to 2, create 2” and so on.

You can find it in the marketplace in the platform or here - Apps Marketplace

Hope that helps!

Hi @codyfrisch ,
It can be 1-10.


Hi @Fantasy-Media-Team ,

Thank you for your feedback.
I will check the app and see if it will be applicable for us.
