Formulae automation is not working

When creating an item - I have been trying to automatically populate a text column with the name of the group it was created in, but to no avail.

This technically works using the formula automation - See below

I have tried putting the formula in speech marks but nothing happens. All of the other automation I have created on the board works - a lot of it happening when the item is created.

Hey Rory,

To confirm, are you currently using the general caster app to achieve this?

Hello @rorydouglas ,

Welcome to the monday community ! :muscle:

I assume you are using General Caster ( or Autoboost?). Seeing as this is an app issue, I would suggest contacting the app developers directly, I know they will help you resolve your issue quickly.

Hi There!

I don’t think this is the general caster. See below

Hey Rory,

Thanks for the screenshot :slight_smile:

It looks like you’re using the formula in automations app.
