Here is the scenario:
Whenever our sales reps add new companies or contacts to Salesmate.io we created a automation that automatically assigns ownership to their Sales Manager. We refer to this as "The House" account (like a casino).
A sales rep doesn't actually "own" a company or contact until they are able to win a deal with them. If they win a deal, then we change ownership of company & contact over to the sales rep and therefore no other sale rep can reach out to this account because it belongs to another rep.
The automation we want is to be able to update Company and Contact associated with a deal that is won. Currently we can do that, however, the automation is lacking CONTEXT. When creating a new automation using the deal module / object it allows us to update the company owner field, however, it asks us to simply pick a user.
What is SHOULD be able to do, is let us pick "the current deal owner" as a user in the dropdown control. This would make it contextual to the deal being processed by the automation. Much like you already use context in filters such as "currently logged in user" or "you" in dashboards etc.
I know this a nuanced request. But I think its a very powerful addition to automations. Being able to reference the data of current object being processed by the automation will open up many new possibilities.
