Voting Receipe automation suggestions

Hello Folks,

Wouldn’t it be great if we would have this recipe:

When total Vote count is ≤%50 at Due Date, Create new Item in Group (Board).
When total Vote count is ≤%50 at Due Date, Move Item to Group (Board).
When total Vote count is ≥%50 at Due Date, Move item to Group (Canceled).

And so on.
What do you think?

@basdebruin is this something you can arrange and handle maybe? If so please let me know. It would be a great Feature because after the voting deadline date, it would automatically assign it to a person group or board.

Hi @melih

On first sight this should be possible but a few more details are needed:

  • when you say 50% votes the question is 50% of what?
  • looks like you want to trigger on due date, that trigger is not standard available. Do you think a scheduled trigger (like once a day do the check) will be sufficient
  • your actions state Group (Board) do you want to move to a specified Group (within the board) or to a specified Group in a specified Board

More questions than answers… sorry :slight_smile:

@basdebruin Hello
So we have 7 Board Subscribers, Below the Board

Due Date of voting is ¨Vote Date¨column.

Well the most important part is to trigger due Date with Voting.

Scenario:

  1. If Due date arrives and Vote Number (the majority # of subscriber at board) is below 50% ≥3 then (CHANGE, MOVE, CREATE all options) change Status to Declined.

  2. If Due date arrives and Vote Number (the majority # of subscriber at board) is higher then 50% ≤4 then (CHANGE, MOVE, CREATE all options) change Status to Accepted

  3. If Due date arrives and Vote Number (the majority # of subscriber at board) is below 50% ≥3 then (CHANGE, MOVE, CREATE all options) move Item to Declined Group or Board.

  4. If Due date arrives and Vote Number (the majority # of subscriber at board) is higher then 50% ≤4 then (CHANGE, MOVE, CREATE all options) move Item to Accepted Group or Board.

Thank you.

Hi @melih

The devil is in the details :slight_smile:

When you say exceeds % of subscribers are those subscribers counted at the time you add the automation to the board or at the time the due data is due?

The Due date will not change (only the clock on the wall changes :slight_smile:) so the Due date can not be used as a trigger. What you can do is check on regular intervals (e.g. at midnight) to see for which items the due data is passed and then take appropriate action on these items. Is that where you are looking for?

As actions you can certainly set the status and move the item to a specified group within the board. The action builder does not allow to select a group in another board. Is this sentence OK for you?

Check on INTERVAL and if DUE date is passed and VOTES exceed 50% of board subscribers set STATUS to SOMETHING and move item to GROUP, else set STATUS to SOMETHING and move item to GROUP

Where the capitalized words can be selected by the user.

Hello @basdebruin,

Thank you for your answer. I will check it out.

And by the way the first question answer is: Yes :slight_smile:
Thanks!
