This only works for initial partition assignment. If you're updating a value on an already existing person who was already assigned in the past, you'll want to create a smart campaign for that.

Yes, +1 to what Jim is saying - notice that this functionality in the Admin is called "Initial Partition". It's primarily used for when new leads come down from CRM. It's best ignored honestly as it isn't that useful.
This is the biggest error people make in workspaces/partition management. For full control, build yourself a smart campaign and utilise the "Change Partition" flow step.
Follow the instructions here: Change Person Partition - Marketo Docs - Product Documentation
Jim and Veronica,
Thank you this helped. The only thing was it took me a minute to wrap my head around the instructions in the change partition steps from the Marketo Docs. For anyone who runs across this scenario, I would add that you should use your central workspace to set up the smart campaign. Setup your smart list to the criteria of what people/person needing to be moved from one partition to another. Then do the steps of the Change Partition as Veronica provided earlier Change Person Partition - Marketo Docs - Product Documentation in the Flow of the smart campaign.
Indeed - yes. All functions that impact your system globally like this should be run in the Default workspace as a general rule.
