Round-Robin Assignment formula

8 - Asteroid

I have a workflow that generates tickets for investigation by QC techs, this generates daily, seven days a week. It contains a few Null() fields that will be worked on by the techs. 


I've used the formula: DateTimeFormat([DateField],"%u") will give you the day of the week where Monday = 1 and Sunday = 7

To find the day of the week that the report generated. 


I have a table that has the Techs names and the weekday they are scheduled to work:

I need to have it find the day of the week and then assign techs into the Analyst column until filled.


Any suggestions on how to accomplish this?

Hi @wmcclure ,


I've create an example based on 4 analyst but you can configure the number as you desire.




Take a look and let me know if this works for you.

Fernando this looks very very good. It was nearly perfect! I had to account for varying number of techs on each day. Easy enough when you gave such a good formula to start!


Thank you

How do you get it to change based on the number of analyst being different each time its run?
