Automations work this way:
Every time something happens in the pipe,
The automation will do something else as a consequence.
For example, you can create automation that moves a parent card every time other cards connected to it are moved, updated, or receive an alert.
How to create this automation?
First, ensure there's an active connection between cards.
Then, choose an event:
1. When a card is created
Every time a new Card is created in a pipe  or arrives from a form → move the parent Card and all of its connected Cards in another pipe .
2. When a card enters a phase
Every time a connected Card  is moved from one phase to another → the parent Card  will move to another phase.
3. When a field is updated
Every time a field is updated in a Card , in a specific phase of your pipe → move the parent Card  to another phase.
4. When all connected cards are moved to a phase
Every time Cards  that are connected to a parent Card  move to a phase → move the parent Card to a phase of this pipe (or another pipe).
5. When an alert is triggered
Every time a connected Card  receives a late, expired, or overdue alert → move the parent Card  to another phase of this (or another pipe).
