Set person column to creator for subitem with automation

Hi there,

For a board I’d like to automatically set a person column (in a subitem) to the person that created the subitem.
For items this is the very first automation suggested to you in the automations center, but I cannot find how to do this for subitems.

Am I missing something, or is this a missing option?

Hi @HarmLommers

You can use a creation log column in the subitem level, this will automatically assign the person that is creating the subitem.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Hi @Cleopatra-upstream ,

Partially. It does link the person to the column, but the column isn’t a person column. I’m doubting if that person will receive updates when someone adds a comment to it, based on this setting:

Which is what I would like to happen.
