I have been playing with automation and updating subtasks, am having some success at updating one subtask of each task, but unsure how to update ALL the subtasks of a given task.
I have a structure as follows. 3 records with 3 subtasks beneath each.
I have set up a Make.Com automation that will copy a field from the Main Task to the subtasks. The goal is to copy the main record name (and maybe other data like email address) to fields in each subtask. For simplicity sake, just dealing with the TaskName now (which will be a unique employee name).
After copying, this is how the table should populate.
I’ve created a simple copy using Make.com, and it works to populate 1 field in each group OK, but I don’t see how to get more than 1 field populated. I must be missing something fundamental, or perhaps need to add more fields to copy in the final step, maybe an array or something pulling in more records for the board, or something.
This is the result after running the Make.com scenario listed below
My current scenario is as follows, and there’s something I’m missing for it to populate the other 2 subtasks (My real data set has over 20 subtasks, and up to 100 main records). Obviously I have to figure out how to pull ALL records and process them, or maybe be able to identify a record for an entire set of subtasks at one time, for this to work. I’d be ok in just doing a pull for the specific subtask I was on at the time, if a webhook would work for that.

Anyone care to point me in the right direction? My understanding, from reviewing (loosely) similar projects on youtube, and in this forum, lead me to believe I need at least one of the Array/Iterators involved to somehow populate info into my Monday.com lists in some orderly fashion. All my testing thus far using them don’t seem to work for me, and I can’t find any salient info on how they are used in similar projects.
