How to fetch data from custom field task_assignee to child table Dependent Tasks

Hello Everyone,

I created a custom mandatory field “Task assignee” in DocType “Task”.

In “Task” doctype, I have a child table “Dependent Tasks” and I created 3 columns:

  1. Task
  2. Assignee
  3. Status
    I would like to update the values of: “Assignee” and “Status” columns in the child table, based on the values of those fields in the dependent task.

I found similar topics with suggestions for custom scripts, but I couldn’t figure it out.

I appreciate your help!

Customize the Child table form,

And in the Assignee & Status field, check fetch from type and enter the “linkfieldname.fieldname” to auto fetch the data from tasks.

Hello mohitchechani,

Thank you so much for your answer.

I tried your suggestion but with no success, unfortunately.

I am new to using the ERPNext so maybe I am doing something wrong.

Here is the child table:

Here you can see the fetch from:

I tried it both ways assignee.taks_assignee as well as taks_assignee.assignee - task_assignee is a value of the custom field from which I would like to fetch data.

Thank you for your help!


It’s working, thank you so much :slight_smile:
