Improved Automations by allowing more complex options, e.g. if, then rules based on certain fields having certain information in them

I have a field that is a drop down single select on who the overall task is assigned to and should be assigned back to when other people get involved. I would like a rule to automatically assign it back to the listed person when the task is moved into a specific section.

Hi @Robert_Miller2,

Not to negate your request to do this natively in Asana, but FYI there is a solution available using our Flowsana integration.

Let’s say the custom field is called “Original Assignee”. Using the Flowsana “Assign task” rule action, you could create a rule:

If the task is moved to the XYZ section, assign it to the value in the custom field “Original Assignee”.
