Using drop downs populated from a form and tyrning them unto sub items

Hi Monday Fam!

Inhave a form that captures requests for support and gives the form completer a few drop down options where they can ask for support on more than one item in the same request.

When this form comes through as an item, i want those drop downs to automatically populate sub items off the original.

Any easy way of doing this?

Hello @Rachhoward ,

Welcome to the monday community! :muscle:

The best you can do using only monday should be the following :

Essentially for each value in the dropdown column, you create one such automation. If you have for example 5 values in the dropdown column, you would need 5 automations, each one containing one of the values.

You can also name the subitems getting created based on that value.

Hope this helps!

Thank You sooooo much, this was helpful

However, to add complexity, i only want sub items to be populated IF multiple are selected from a drop down.

Can we do this?

Hello @Rachhoward ,

You certainly can! Just recreate the automation and choose all the labels that need to be contained!
