IFTTT to Add Page Watchers triggered by resource assignments

I have created a project intake form using confiforms. I am trying to set up IFTTT to add page watchers when a project entry has been submitted and they have been assigned as the resources 

I know that i can add specific names under the Page Watcher(s) to add section but that is not specific to whom would get assigned to that particular project. 

If someone knows the answer and can also provide visuals, I would really appreciate that :)

In the ifttt macro you can use [entry.fieldname] in the "Page watchers to add" field to reference the user field in your form that has the people you selected as resources.

To compliment Davin's answer and make it more connected to your form - the "fieldname" from [entry.fieldname] shall be the name of the field you have in your form holding the "resources"

Thank you both so much. I was able to get it to work and add the page watchers.

The only issue that i am now encountering is that for the ones that the field type = multi-select doesn't seem to add the users from that list to watch the page but the dropdown field types works. 

Is this in fact the case or am i doing something wrong?

Something like


Using transform and asList functions as in docs,
