I have created automations within Airtable so that when a box is checked in one table, all of the production tasks will be created in another table. My question is, sometimes the title for an event will change in the first table. How can I get that change to be automatically reflected in the production tasks found in my other table? I have tried several times without success. Thanks for the help!

When you create the tasks are you linking them back to the table where the box was checked?  If so, your automation would find records in the tasks table where the linkedID matches the one that was checked,  Then update the title on those tasks.  


Another approach is to use a formula.  Use a lookup from the linked field to get the title.  Then use a formula in your tasks table that includes the lookup of the name.
