I’m still not quite sure what you are describing here. Here’s one of my examples (configured completely through the UI and functioning perfectly well:
This item has two channels: the first is the direct channel. This item responds to and pushes changes to the wall switch. The second channel is the follow channel:
This channel only pushes item changes out to the fan relay.
This is just like the text configuration. The same item has two channels, one of those channels has the follow profile applied.
I set this up via the method I described above, using the
Add Link to Item in the channel tab of the thing page.
Are you saying that you see the exact same setup as I am showing but that you don’t see the follow profile working or that you cannot set up the profile correctly?
