How to reference a field in Time-Based Automation?

Hello everyone!

I’m trying to create a time-based automation on a table that performs an action for rows that have a checkbox that is unchecked.

I’m having trouble referencing the field correctly.

I’ve tried things like:
thisrow.[complete] == false()

But in each case it appears that thisrow.[complete] is not the correct way to reference a field.

How can I do this?

Hey @Chris_Hall ,
I’m doing something similar and I remember that I also struggled with that. I worked around it in a different way, maybe it helps:

  • I’ve added a button column in the table. The button runs the action I want to automate. E.g. change column value or post to slack
  • In the THEN I filter the table and run the button for all rows with empty result column (in your case false checkbox) with


That way you don’t need to reference any “thisrow” or “result of step x”. :man_shrugging:t3:

Is that what you mean / would that work for you?
