Can you write a formula in column 5 to populate column 4?

Is it possible? Can you write a formula in column 5 to populate column 4?

I need Column 4 to just rewrite what is in Column 3, BUT the formula will need to be in column 5. And it only needs to it to be written if column 6 has text.

    We testing and hoping for a new way to populate a sheets column.

    Essentially, column 3 and 4 will be identical if column 6 has text. I've numbered the columns, I need column 4 to stay blank (no column formula or cell formula) except when column 6 has text present. If column 6 has any letter or number, I want column 4 to copy the text from column 3.

    I tried the automation called sheet changes... it changes a cell value when specified criteria are met. but it doesn't allow me to use the same automation i would use if sending an email ie. {{Column 3 Issue text}}.
