Improving automation filtering

I am currently managing 83 automations for 1 single board used by my marketing. There are a number of automation filters that could be enhanced, and require less automations because they are smarter.

  • Column = empty filter. Example: When Item is created & Date is empty > Set date to today
  • Column IS NOT filter. Example: When item is created & drop down is not X or Y > update owner to Person A.
  • Column IS ONE OF. Example: When item is updated and Status is X OR Y (or not, X OR Y) > Move to X group.

The above examples would greatly increase the efficiency of building and maintaining automations. Some of them there is no active work around, Others are possible if you are willing to build the same automation more than once.
