Possible for Logged multiple choice fieldto show current user

  • 1.  Possible for Logged multiple choice fieldto show current user

    Posted 18 days ago

    I have a multiple choice field that is logged with name and time. However, it can be triggered via a dynamic rule, which means it always logs my name as the administrator. I'm assuming that is just the way it is, since the person who selected the logged field was technically me during the dynamic rule. Just curious if there are any creative work arounds to this so it logs the current user even when triggered by a dynamic rule.

    Something is confused here. A form rule will be tagged with the current users name. You must be referring to an automation?

    Ahh yes. I guess I had a backup automation as a safety in case someone used grid edit or slid a card on a kanban. And then, somehow also deleted my dynamic rule so it has always been firing the automation. I'll work it with a dynamic rule which should eliminate 95% of that issue.

    Any trick with the automation?

    The Automation will know the [Last Modified by] when it fires, which will be a real user.  So you can incorporate the name of that user into the words that you what you update in the logged field.
