How to press selected buttons

Hi, brand-new user here. Is there away to select buttons on multiple rows in a database and press them all at once? I know I could do this with a formula on an external button, but the criteria for the buttons I want to push is a bit arbitrary, so I think it would be more efficient just to do it with manual selections. I have over 4000 rows in this database, and I would want to select and press large chunks of buttons at once.

Hey Victor! Welcome to Coda! :orange_heart:

I think what might help here would be an automation to push these buttons based on whatever criteria you’d like. Check out this awesome guide to Automations to get started: Automations in Coda, how automations work in Coda | Guides

A simple solution would be to create a checkbox column, with which you can manually select rows with your arbitrary criteria. Then create a canvas button to execute an action for each selected row, like pressing a button.

Hope this helps,

Pablo
