Automation: Create subtasks from a list os 20 locations

Steve Krawcke May 9, 2024

I have a list of 20 locations that I need to check once a quarter 

I create the task then I want one sub task for each location 

is there a way to feed automation the list or do I need to "Create sub-tasks" -> "sub-task" for each location?

 I do the the locations in Assets but I see that automation using assets are not available yet? image (2).png

Yes, it is possible and assets do have actions in automation that you can use, one of them being lookup objects that you can use in order to create your automation. You can then use the advanced branching to iterate over the returned objects to create a sub-task for each one. It would look something like this:

Note that is a simplified example, I would consider moving the creation of the sub-tasks to its own automation that you are triggering from the one that creates the task and also add conditions that checks the size of the lookup object to make sure it returns data.
