Cross boards automations + group creation

Hello everyone, can anyone help me with a way to create an automation that once an item is created in one board creates or duplicates a group in another board ?

Sure! You can do something like this, which allows you to specify which group to duplicate depending on a status column. You can easily remove that condition if required.

Create an item in another board (template board) when an item is created

Specify some status label for that item (you can add conditions to the previous automation)

Use the status column to determine which group to duplicate

You may want to add “then delete this item” to the last automation in order to clean up the “requestor” item.

Unfortunately, you cannot pass any argument to that group (such as to use “x” value in a column). This would make the duplicate group automation much more powerful and remove the need to use external tools in a lot of cases.
