Using Hidden Status to Trigger Automation

I was trying to use a hidden status as a button to send an item to another board. It wasn’t working unless the item was visible. Can this be changed?

Hey @cbacon!

Ivan here from the monday.com team! At the moment, when it comes to our automation recipes, it currently isn’t possible to set up a recipe and use a hidden column as the trigger for that recipe. A column with Restricted Column Views is unable to be used as an automation/ integration trigger.

I can understand where you’re coming from and I’ve already sent this feedback along to our Autopilot Team - I’m hopeful that this can become a possibility in the near future!

Thank you! Merely a suggestion.
