We’re going to tackle the top 3 most common VLookup issues and provide you with some friendly solutions to get everything working smoothly.
Before we proceed, here’s a handy VLookup installation guide for your reference.
When dealing with VLookup integrations, it’s crucial to have the necessary webhooks in place. But don’t worry, you don’t have to manually add them! They should be installed automatically. If, for some reason, you find that the webhooks are missing, it might be due to a permission issue in your account. Here’s what you can do to fix it:
Here’s a list of VLookup integrations that include webhooks for your reference:
When a column value changes, automatically update changes in linked boards
When a subitem is created (using automation), search for its value and link
When any subitem column value changes, automatically update changes in linked boards
For VLookup to work like a charm, make sure you have the correct integrations in both the source and target boards. Here’s a quick guide to help you out:
Permission problems can be quite pesky! Here are two common types and how to handle them:
Even if you’re an admin, you may not have the necessary permissions to install VLookup and its integrations. As a result, data won’t populate in the target board. Ensure you have the proper write access to the target board to resolve this issue.
If you’re linking the people column and find that the user is not showing up in the target board, it means they are a member of the source board but not the target board. Simply add the user as a member to the target board to resolve this.
With these solutions in hand, you should be able to tackle common VLookup issues without a hitch! If you have any questions or need further assistance, don’t hesitate to ask. We’re here to help!
