I have a custom item type and want to add an automation rule to notify who ever is assigned once the task creation is finished. The problem is I don't know WHO will be assigned to the task until after I am finished saving the task, at which point it is too late.
The automation rules are:
- Apply Rule to (NEW TASK NAME)
- When New Item Created
- @mention assignee letting them know it is there
However, when we create the task from the table, it is automatically firing off the @mention to "assignee" but there is no one assigned to the task until we go into it, fill in the information, find the appropriate assignee then close out the task. I then tried to add the "and if" condition of if any of the 5 resources are assigned as an assignee but I think the condition is looking for the task to have all of them assigned?
Am I missing something or does there need to be a new condition created of "and if the assignee is not blank" or something like that that doesn't exist? Otherwise my condition to send the @mention is useless.
Can anyone help me?
