So it’s great that you can make mirror columns in subitems ( which means you can send info downwards) but it doesn’t help much if I can’t automate them to automatically connect once the subitem is created. Because of how we do things we really need this link to happen ONLY when a person creates a subitem. Not on main item creation.
The “When item is created” is useless for this as info will only be inserted later than the creation and making a template automation just eats away on automations per month and is not flexible.
Please consider this for the roadmap as this would be super useful for data and statistics of subitems and will save a lot of manual clicking.
Our team is really struggling with the fact that data can’t really move down easily from Main item to subitem fields.
I’m here to vote on this.
Hey @Dian94 & @JHolden1975!
We developed an app that solves this exact problem. It allows to automatically create item in a different board and connect it to the subitem that was created. See below -
This way, you can make sure that the subitems are automatically shown where needed and you can utilize mirror column to show the relevant info.
We’re constantly adding new capabilities to it to make sure it’s easy and powerful to run automation on subitems just like it’s powerful on “regular” items.
You can find it in the monday.com marketplace in the platform or here - monday.com: Apps Marketplace
Hope that helps!
@Fantasy-Media-Team FantasyMediaTeam I have tried this app after seeing this post. While there are some nice options, the automatation shown doesn’t execute for me.
@JHolden1975 mind sharing more context about what you’re trying to achieve?
