Copy and move row workflow disabled by smartsheet


My copy/move row workflows (that previously worked) were disabled yesterday. I now have an error that says "Rows can't be added to the destination sheet because a column has the same name as a system column on the source sheet." Anyone else have this issue? If this is new functionality, then the workflow will only work once since if a column doesn't exist in a destination sheet it is automatically added. Anyone have any info on this error message?

    Looks like a teammate changed the column "type" on the destination sheet to text instead of a system column. This threw everything off. The column type AND the column name have to match when copying/moving rows. I am not sure if this is just for system columns or for all columns...afraid to test it out :)
