Custom conditions for automations


A common request I get is to make an automation that runs only if a condition is met. For example, today I had a customer who wanted “When item created and checkbox ticked, create item in board”. The customer was insistent that it had to be a checkbox and not a status, as they are using a monday form and want it to display a checkbox.


Monday currently only only offers 5 conditions and checkbox is not among them, and while I can think of workarounds, they seem messy and overkill. (like making an integration or using general caster to read the value of a checkbox and write the result into a status column)

It would be nice to have more options for ‘and only if…’ conditions, but that’s all well and good unless I’m making automations using more complex conditions.

Currently what I do is bake the condition into the custom action itself, however, I find this to be somewhat inflexible when I want to reuse a condition for a different action.

Therefore, I think that a means to define custom conditions would be a good time saver and make designing automations simpler and more flexible.


Hi @SamM!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I agree with you, it would be nice to see more options in this dropdown! I will be passing this feature request over to our R&D team for review.
