Automation help

I'm trying to set up an automation rule where a custom field is populated with the name of the assignee once it is is in certain statuses-

ex: if we assign a ticket to a developer, and mark it "ready for dev", the custom field will populate with their name, but once our QA assigns it to themselves and changes the status to "in QA", the custom field will retain the name of the original developer.

Does anyone know if this possible?

Sure thing. You'll want a Trigger for when the ticket moves to "Ready for Dev", and then just use an Edit action to set the custom field to {{assignee}}

It'll look something like this:

I don't have a "Ready for Dev" in my test system, and the Developer custom field I just created was taking its sweet time to show up in Automation (what's up with that @John McKiernan?), so I used "Selected for Development" and Notifyee.

Anywho, the trick here is that you have to start typing {{assignee}} and Automation will automagically detect you're using a Smart value, and show that in the suggestions.

AWESOME! It worked! Thank you so much, you just saved me hours of time trying to dig around looking for an alternative solution to this.
