When any update is posted

I am trying to figure out how to create a custom automation using this as a template:


Ideally I would like to create an automation as follows:

When any update is posted in this Group and contains keywords, move to this Group

Is this possible?

Hi Richard,

You are not alone in this! There is a feature request thread you could add to here
and here.

Since we are limited to these 5 options (below) for now, and they lack keyword or column update options, I would recommend considering a workaround.

As a workaround, create a new column to represent the keywords as a status, dropdown, or number and implement a workflow that if an update is made, you set the column. I would recommend a Status if possible. So, the automation below would be a part of the process:

  1. The user navigates to the board and locates the item
  2. The user creates an Update
  3. The user then sets the Status (aka keyword)
  4. This automation will run:

Depending on your use case there may be other workarounds that are a better fit, but hopefully that gets the wheels turning.

Thanks for your question!
