How to get the name of the last person for whom time has been logged ?

Flavien Gache Community Leader Jun 16, 2021


I want to create an automation to assign an issue to the person for whom time has been logged. I need to know if there is a smart value for that.

I know the smartvalue exist but I don't think it will fit my problem. Let's see it through this example :

As a manager, I want to log time for Michael on Task 1. How do I return the value "Michael" to automation in order to autoassign Task 1 to Michael as soon as I logged work on a task for him ?

I could not find it in the documentation but I might have missed it !

I hope my problem is simple to understand ahaha

Thanks in advance for your kind help :)
