Hi - I’m brand new to Airtable and am building a capacity tracker/task tracker for my team. In my capacity tracker table, individual team members are assigned an “at capacity” or “available” marker based on a formula that is triggered by the number of tasks they are linked to in the task tracker table. When a task is marked complete in my task tracker table, I want it to disappear from the column/rows it is linked to in the capacity table, so a team member’s capacity level is always accurate. I hope that makes sense.

Is it possible to do this with an automation? I’ve been perusing the forums but can’t find anything that is super clear.

Thanks!

Hmm, if I were you I’d use a conditional rollup field in the Team Members table that would only rollup on tasks that are not completed, no automation needed. That should do what you’re looking for I think?

You should be able to create a filter based on marking the task as complete.

Here are the screenshot of the filter you’d need:
