I have an automation that updates a Slack channel when a certain column is updated.
Message looks like “[user] changed status to [status]”.
For that [user] portion, I’m trying to do:
[Step 1 Result].[Status Column].modifiedBy().Name
but the formula builder insists there’s an error with that (and it comes out undefined on Slack).
For now I’ve worked around it by adding a column called
Modified By with formula
[Status Column].modifiedBy() - which I can then reference in the automation as
But just wondering why calling properties of the object returned by modifiedBy() isn’t supported directly within the automation’s formula.
