Naming fields via rules


I’ve been using the “templating” template and loving it, thank you for creating it!

Now I’ve been using it for a week, I find myself with tasks with the same name, but attached to different projects. So to help differentiate in these cases, it would be useful if the task name could be a combination of two fields.

Is there a formula that would allow me to have the new task’s name be a combination of [Step 1 Task Template].Name and [Step 1 linked Project].Name? Ideally “[Step 1 Task Template].Name - [Step 1 linked Project].Name.”

many thanks for any advice :slight_smile:

You can just update the automation that creates the task:

Just change the formula for the Name field in the + Add Tasks item action
(and your syntax is correct as far as I understand what you’re trying to achieve)

thank you very much! :slight_smile:
