Auto Fill a field based on Name

Is it possible to create a field that has a rule to assign to a department based on Name? For example, John Doe belongs to Sales, when John Doe is assigned to a project or task, the department field is automatically populated with Sales.

I may have missed this in previous discussions, if so, please point me in the correct direction.
Thank you!

Welcome, @Silvia_Puskar,

Yes, if you’re on Asana Business or Enterprise, you can write this rule as follows (just replace the “Set Plan” custom field in the example with your “Set Team” custom field:

Note the trigger has multiple triggers, any one of which will trigger the action. Thus, you’ll need only one rule per Team.

Hope that helps,
