@MelissaBathumThank you so much for the video! it was really helpful. My only question is.. 

 

When you automate the "when a task is completed" it doesn't specify in what bucket, so when I go with the flow and then complete the new task it was recently assigned, does that task enter again on the flow? 

@mariapineda Good question - yes, this would create an infinite loop of sorts. You can avoid this by adding a conditional statement checking what the bucket name equals, before creating the new task! 

Greate! thank you , if you have any chance could you insert some Screen shots on the statement checking I'm actually new at this :D
Great video on automation. The screenshot of the other training videos at the end shows the wrong video with the arrow “you just watched this video”

hey is there any office hour hosted for this? could you please share?

also any VSO task integration available / planned? @MelissaBathum
