I currently have an automation set up so that when the status of an item changes, it creates a specific set of subitems, with timelines based on the date of the status change. Looking at the dates created, it appears these are hard coded so the dates created by my automation will never change.
I did a search and the only result I could find was from 2019. Is there some way this can be implemented that I’m missing?
Can it seriously be that in over 3 years Monday has been unable to implement something to provide the option to set dates in automations using something as simple and intuitive at set date to TODAY, or TODAY+# ?
For (parent)items there is an app called Set Relative Timeline, see https://monday.com/marketplace/10000032. Unfortunately subitems are not supported yet as the monday developers framework does not support subitems in what is called custom action blocks.
We had exactly the same issue - as a workaround we now use Make.com and have a written a small process that makes adjust to all the subitems (basically we have a template with subitems that we duplicate, and then need to push forward all the subitem timelines).
Happy to post more details if needed.
