Copying multiple contacts into a cell

Currently HR fills out a SmartSheet for a new hire. They fill in the Practice Manager and Hire Manager from a contact list. I have a formula to copy these contacts each task that belongs

to these two people respectively. This way, no matter what department, the correct people are assigned and we only need one SmartSheet. Works well. I want to create a notify all automation. I tried using the same formula to copy multiple contacts into one cell but I keep getting a parsing error. I have the column set as a contact list for multiple contacts. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks, Lisa

    There is currently no way to copy multiple contacts into a single cell a usable contact type column.

    If there will only ever be two, you could create 2 separate contact type columns and pull one contact into each column on the same row and set up your automations to send to these columns.
