With Automations, link entity state to that of another

Hi, I have a big need for the ability to take an entity, link it to another entity type, and then have the state stay in sync. In particular I am using this to track ideas: I’d like to set up ideas that can be “promoted” to work items, or projects, and when the promotion happens, I’d like to leave the idea’s state something like “promoted,” but not yet “closed” until the resulting linked entity reaches a closed state itself. So there is conditional behavior of the original entity based on the state of the new, linked one.

I know you guys were not able to get automations into the upcoming launch of Fibery to the public, but I’m hoping this can be one of the first features of automations you release!

Thanks for your consideration
