Today we have released new tasklist Automators, giving you the ability to create rules that trigger actions dependant on your task activity.
Tasklist Automators allow you to apply ‘if this then that’ rules to task sections in your work items and templates. The status of tasks or a work item can be set to automatically update based on the activity of other tasks. These rules can also be applied to your Client Tasks.
There are endless ways you can use these Automators to help you work more efficiently—whether you have tasks that cannot begin until those before it have been completed, you are waiting on a client to complete their tasks, or your work item needs review.
Setting up Automators will also give you an accurate dashboard of all the work that matters to you, and show you every single task you're responsible for that is ready to work on.
