Selecting an Assignee for Items created by Automations?

I’m trying to create an automation so that

When an item is created…
Create a new item on a different Board

The trouble I’m having is that I can’t seem to set the person that the new item is assigned to. I want this item to be assigned to the same person every time, but I can’t select a team member in the automation template.

Am I missing something?

Hey @tjb,

In the automation template, you can map the people column in the item so that the new item assigns the person that is assigned in the origin board however I believe you’re interested in assigning a new person in the destination board - correct?

If this is the case you will need to set this up in the destination board - i.e. when item created assign XYZ? You can also set up a condition in the recipe to ensure the correct person is assigned to the item - for example if you were to map the person column in the automation recipe in the origin board, you can then reassign the item in the destination board via automation based on whoever was assigned in the origin board. Does this make sense?
