Is there a simple way to construct rules that are functions of fields and not specific values?
I have 7 people that have the ability to open a new task via a form and their user is captured in the “Requestor” field. In my workflow I want to trigger a review of a deliverable by the original requestor after the work is initially done.
Currently I am using a lot of duplicate rules where i need to prebuild for each possible requestor a rule that
- checks if Requestor changed to validate which name is being used
- if it is that name then run an action that assigns an approval subtask to that user.
This is not replicable or scalable and wastes rules which are limited (50) to a project.
A different option or enhancment would be to be able to run an action as a function of a field in the project.
Assign an approval subtask to the value in the Requestor field
This is generalizable and scalable and would bring down the unneeded usage of duplicate rules in the platform.
