If a deal is created or updated with Custom_Field is/contains X
Then assign Pipedrive_User1 as a Deal Follower
You can do this with Make/Integromat today.
Tell me more. This idea is based on user accounts. You can change the deal owner, but not who is following the deal.
Hi @Chris McConnell -
You can do this to an extent via Workflow Automation. If someone is a Deal Owner, they automatically become a follower, so the hack is essentially to do:
Then Person Y will be a follower and the Owner will still be the same as it was before. You may need to add a 1-min delay step between 3 and 4 so this change doesn’t happen too quickly.
The second WF automation would be a bit more complicated. You cannot just have “If a deal is updated and Custom Field is X” as the trigger, because this would trigger unnecessarily every single time the deal was updated. So you’d probably want a hidden custom field to track that the follower has been added. Something like:
This additional filter in step 2 and deal field update in step 3 will keep this automation from triggering again and again and again.
If you want the follower to be dynamic (if field is A, add follower B / if field is C, add follower D / if field is….) then this would be better to do via Zapier.
Please feel free to reach out if you would like additional support.
