TriggerSync can not be run in automations


I have the Google Drive pack installed and have made a button to refresh the table and log a timestamp when this done.

I have set the pack to refresh manually but set a time based automation to click the refresh button referred to above. This seems to be the only way to get a timestamp of the last refresh.

The automation works great when tested but throws this error when trying to to a time based trigger: “TriggerSync can not be run in automations”

Can anyone help?

Hi @Thaddeus_Robertson :blush: !

I’m not sure about what I’m going to say but did you check “who” runs the automation ? :blush:
(in the Take actions as dropdown menu at the bottom of the automation)

The automation bot can’t use Private pack accounts, so maybe that could be where the issue comes from …

Alas yes… this was the 1st thing I worked through.

Automations cannot refresh sync tables. Ever. It’s intentional design by Coda.

This would be a feature request

TIL :sweat_smile:
(As I do pretty much everyday :innocent: )

Thanks @Scott_Collier-Weir :grin: !
