Re-assigning Tasks back to original owners

Hello! I have not been able to find any discussion on this topic, curious if anyone has found a need for a similar solution.

I would like to build in an automation that re-assigns tasks based on a Status column. It is possible to do this by re-assigning to a specific individual, but not to the original owner, if that owner varies.

Example: One task is owned by a designer, Judy. Another task is owned by designer Roger. When Judy or Roger sets the status as ‘for review’, tasks should always be re-assigned to the Creative Director, Ashley. This is possible already. BUT when Ashley changes the status back to ‘in progress’, these tasks should be assigned back to their original owners. There is no automation to assign to ‘previous task owner’ or ‘original task owner’ or something along those lines.

(In other similar softwares, I was able to add a column with a person who was not the official assignee but was assigned to the task as ‘desiger’ or ‘project manager’, then use automation to re-assign based on this designation. Would love something similar as well!)


Hi @morgan_kingsland, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback!

While this feature isn’t available at this time, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates :slight_smile:
