Create and assign an issue to users in a list


I'm building a project where an issue has a "People" field containing a list of users.  When the issue is saved I want to use Automation to create an issue for each user in the list in a separate project. 

Think an "Audience" field in Project A, each user in the Audience becomes an Assignee for a new issue in Project B.

Alternatively, if I can automate adding a name to the Audience field every time I change the Assignee I can probably make that work, as it's simple enough to create new issues and copy down the Assignee.  I've tried this using the "Edit Issue" action, but for some blasted reason I can't select People fields in the Edit Issue action's dialog.  I'm trying to figure out the syntax for using Smart Values to do this, without much luck.
