Looking for automation: when status changes, create new group with item name

I see the recipe for making a new group when the status changes but unfortunately, don’t see how to have the item name become the new group name.

If you need more context: When I come back from a meeting, I want to input my to-dos in a list. Then I want to be able to go through the list and indicate whether the item is a multi step project (in which case it gets its own group) or a standalone project (in which case it goes to a different board). I have everything figured out except for the name of the new group for the multi-step project. I would like the item name to carry over to the new group. Is this possible?

Hey @Tarmar,

Would this recipe from the automations centre work for you? This way the group will be named after the specific item:

Hi Tam
Just click the Item Name, in the group part of the automation
This will add the item name to the newly created group

Many thanks dan

I no longer see “auto populate fields from board items” as an option in the current automation board.
How can I use the “item name” field otherwise?

Hm, can you please clarify which automation recipe you’re referring to here? Please feel free to send over a screenshot!

I can no longer see "auto populate fields from board items” as an option as well. Attached a screenshot of the issue

I see what you mean here @matthiasstreicher! It appears the option to auto-populate fields from the item isn’t supported when conditions are included, however I will follow up for you and clarify whether this is definitely the case :pray:

@BiancaT thank you very much. For me it doesn’t work at all - no matter if I include conditions or keep it as simple as possible. :smiling_face:

Hello everyone - thanks for your patience! I have heard back from our product team who have confirmed that this functionality isn’t supported for the aforementioned recipes - apart from the recipe I posted in my initial reply. That being said, they’re already working on improving this feature so no matter what recipe, conditions or not, you can auto-populate fields from the boards items :pray: No ETA just yet, but we’re hoping for a release very very soon!

@BiancaT Your update was back in April…do we have any ETA on this?
It was originally posted in 2022… would love more responsiveness from the team.

Hey everyone, I really appreciate your patience with me!

I can confirm that this feature is currently in production :raised_hands: It will be integrated into our new workflow builder which is in gradual rollout. Please stay tuned for full release, and thank you for your continued cooperation!

@BiancaT Any update on the return of the auto-populate field feature?
