Hello

The need is quite simple : portfolio management -> based on the value of a field, I want to assign a record to a collaborator / if project is in a list of regions, then it is assigned to toto.

Following lot of examples, and assembling pieces of codes (i'm not dev), i came with this : 

 

// set the table
const table = base.getTable("Saisons")

// get the record from the trigger
const config = input.config()
const trigger = config.triggerID
console.log('trigger',trigger)

const allrecords = await table.selectRecordsAsync()
const record = await allrecords.getRecord(trigger)
console.log('record',record)

// get the formula value
const region = record.getCellValue("Region (from Dpt-Reg) (from Bénéficiaire)")
console.log(region)

if (['Normandie','Bretagne','Hauts-de-France','Pays de la Loire','Centre-Val de Loire'].includes(region))
    {
    let update = await table.updateRecordAsync(record,
    {
        'Suivi': 'toto1@ds.org'
    })
else 
if
    (['Ile-de-France','Corse','Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes','Provence-Alpes-Côte d\'Azur'].includes(region))
    let update = await table.updateRecordAsync(record,
    {
        'Suivi': 'toto2@ds.org'
    })
else if
    (['Occitanie','Nouvelle-Aquitaine'].includes(region))
     let update = await table.updateRecordAsync(record,
    {
        'Suivi': 'toto3@ds.org'
    })
else if
   (['Grand Est','Bourgogne-Franche-Comté'].includes(region))
     let update = await table.updateRecordAsync(record,
    {
        'Suivi': 'toto4@ds.org'
    })
    
console.log(update)

 

However I still get an error and the "Assignee" type field is not updated.

Could you please provide help ?

Thanks
