Problem changing cell value to checked

M_L ✭✭✭✭✭


I have a question:

I set an automation for when the value of a cell equals 'Submitted' or 'Resubmitted' and where the value of 5 other cells say 'Approved' a check box should be checked.

The automation setup in my mind is:

When X happens, and meets Y condition, do X

I do not know why, but I am not able to get the box to check even after I meet the criteria of the automation.

Below are the screenshots of how I have it set up. Any thoughts on why this is not 'checking' the box?

I also have more automations that trigger other cell changes, or uncheck the box that work just fine when I manually tick the box.

    Hi @Matt Lanterman

    I hope you're well and safe!


    I'd be happy to take a quick look.

    Can you maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s)? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too,

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Hi Andree,

    I shared the sheet. There are quite a few automations, the one in question is at the bottom of the list.

    I am not sure if using one field in multiple cell change automations is the issue?
