  3. Select an Action: Once you've chosen a trigger, you'll need to specify the action you want to occur when the trigger event happens. This action can be anything from sending notifications, updating fields, moving items to different groups or boards, creating new items, and more.

  4. Configure Automation Settings: Depending on the trigger and action you've selected, you'll need to configure specific settings. For instance, if you're triggering an action when a status changes, you might need to choose the specific status that triggers the action.

  5. Set Conditions (if needed): Some automations allow you to set conditions that determine whether the action should be performed. For example, you might want an action to occur only if certain fields meet specific criteria.

  6. Test and Activate: Before activating the automation, it's a good idea to test it. This will help you ensure that the automation is working as expected and won't cause any unexpected issues. Once you're confident in the automation's setup, you can activate it.

  7. Monitor and Adjust: After activating the automation, keep an eye on how it functions. If you notice any issues or if the workflow changes, you might need to adjust the automation settings accordingly.
