Move row to new sheet automation not working

Hello please can someone help me to set up automation to move rows that have a status 'rejected' to another sheet and to remove them from the current sheet?

I have tried using the automation below can someone please help as I must be missing something?

    Hi Laura, Are you an admin or owner of both sheets involved? That's a requirement to create the automation. Once created anyone can trigger it.

    Hello Mark

    Thanks for answering my question I am the owner of both sheets but this still doesn't work?!

    Any other suggestions?

    Hi @Laura_Murphy

    I hope you're well and safe!

    To add to Mark's excellent advice/answer.

    • Have you looked at the end of the destination sheet?
    • Have you looked at the Activity Log for clues?

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Not sure if this is helpful, but automations aren't "triggered" retroactively. So if you want items that have already been marked Rejected to be moved, you'll need to change it to a different status (or remove that status), save the sheet, then change them back to rejected. That prompts Smartsheet to trigger the automation again.
