Automation 'breaks' when I 'save as new' for a sheet.

I've created a series of sheet templates with different task rows within them based on the type of project they are used for. A team member will save these sheets as 'save as new' to a specific project folder to use for the new project.

In these sheets I have an automation that alerts an individual on my team to review content when a certain parameter is met.

Recently, after a person has 'save as new' one of these sheets the automation 'breaks' and no longer has that specific persons listed under the assigned to. In the sheet templates, the automation shows there is someone assigned to it but not with the 'save as new' version.

This was working fine before and the only change I made was adding a new team member to our workspace in the last couple months.
