Is it possible to auto-assign the task to the creator of the task?

It seems users are adding tasks but forgetting to assign them to themselves or others to the task. There is an automation that will automatically assign new tasks to a specific person but there isn’t an option to auto-assign based on the “creator of the task”.


Hi @michael_adams1

We’ve seen this request before so I might merge this with another topic.

My workaround for now would be to add a creation log column and you can call it “whose task” so if they forget to assign, you can at least see it from this column?

@michael_adams1 You can add your vote to this earlier similar request:


We recognized the same need.
Many tasks are left orphaned until finally being noticed.

Hi @JohnW and @MaxCR86 - great news! We released a new recipe that should solve this for you:

Thanks @lauraglev. Perfect!
