How frequent do automations on row changed run?
I’m using automation to log status changes so that I have a running history of changes.
I do this with two columns “Status” and “Pre-Log Status”.
- User changes the “Status” column directly.
- Automation runs on changes to “Status”.
- If “Status” != “Pre-Log Status”, then add a row to the log table.
- Update the “Pre-Log Status” = “Status”.
Hey @Ed_Wei !
Automations using the Row Changed trigger will run immediatley* (Read on for Asterik
When a row-changes that would trigger your automation a little “Automation Minion” will be sent directly to Coda’s server to enact your automation. I imagine the minions to look like this:
Once that Minion reaches Coda’s servers they essentially wait in line with all the other Automation Minions from around the world to enact your automation.
So at times your row-changed automation may take 3 seconds to trigger - and at other points it can take up to 15-20 seconds (in my experience)
