Hi @KimF-06f3, awesome! Happy to hear that helped
Yes, I can show you two concepts that may be more scalable for you:
1 ) For the picklist idea, you could have one field to select a user, and two separate buttons: one that stays on the screen with the same entered info (to assign the task to another user), and another button that assigns the task and navigates away from the form.
The first button only has three automation steps: one that writes a new row to the tasks table with the assignee's data, another that sends a notify email automation (which has the if toggle is true in the run options), and a "Navigate/ Update current screen" automation. In the last step, you can reset the assignee selector variable to be blank by writing "":
The second button also only has three steps, the same first two steps as the other button (adding a new row and sending email notification), and the last "Navigate / Update Screen" automation would navigate away from the form to the Home screen (or desired screen).
2 ) For the group idea, you could assign a tasks to all users that you've put into a particular group. This is how it would look:
You have a table of Groups and column in your People table that is a rowlink to the group table.
Then in your app, you'd set up a field to select a group (rowlink to the groups table). Then in the button's run options, you have a FILTER formula which will run the automation of assigning the task to each user in that group.
I'll note that since the FILTER is referencing the People table, you would write the contact value in the "Name" column to the Assignee (or whichever column name you have with that data).
And this is what writes to the Tasks table (each user assigned to Group A):
Hope those ideas help too! Just different ways to approach it.
