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