    I was able to create an auto-assign workflow with a round-robin logic. However, this is currently fixed and I've been thinking lately how to make it dynamic.

    Posting this question here, in case anyone has considered it before also.

    Just to add context, I have 2 lists, 1. Main list, 2. User List

    Every time an item is created in the Main List, the workflow runs by Calculating the Current Item's ID MOD 3, then stores that in a Calc variable

    Then it's a couple of IF Statements

    IF 1 = calc, set Assigned User to ID 1, from the User's List

    IF 2 = calc, set Assigned User to ID 2, from the User's List

    IF 0 = calc, set Assigned User to ID 3, from the User's List.

    So right now, the calculation of the MOD 3, is fixed, including the IF statements. Meaning if a person were to add a new user or remove a user in the User's list, The workflow has to be updated also to either add or remove an IF statement.



    Apologies in case the question is confusing
