Hi @Vijay_Chen 

Good question.

Try adding this Zap action: Monday - Get User Details

Monday likely expects the internal User ID as the value being passed/set in the Zap action step.

 

@Troy Tessalone 
Thank you for your help, but I tried it your way and failed. Is there any other method?

Hi friends! I wanted to pop in and share the solution that was achieved with our friends in support:
 

I'm keen to see if we can come up with any potential workarounds. I'd recommend statically adding the Monday.com User ID of your colleague to the QA field in the "Change Multiple Columns Value" step. You can learn more here on how to find an ID on Monday.com:

Next, select the field you want to add the User ID and select the custom option as shown below:
 


 
Please keep in mind that when you enter a static value into an action field, the Zap will send the same value to your action app every time it runs. You can learn more here:

I hope this helps! 🤗
