No-Code Automations Breakdown

Understanding every Automation

You can set triggered Automations to occur throughout many areas of the Platform. Some Automations are only available for specific functionalities.

Each Automation you configure will have different requirements. The Automations Pane for each section of the platform will tell you exactly what the trigger is for that set of Automations.

If you have a Project that has multiple words in the name, for example: Web Development Build you will only be able to find this Project by searching for WEB. Searching Development or Build will not bring this Project up as that is not the first word in the title.

CLICK HERE to learn about Custom Fields

IMPORTANT: This Automation cannot be used with the File Upload Custom Field.

Custom Field Math Operations

Within the Set Custom Field Value Automation option you can perform simple math operations in a Number type Custom Field.

You can use the Current Value as the base operator using [[current_value]]. You can then add or subtract a number from this Current Value.

An example would be if you wanted to add 100 to the Current Value in the Custom Field "Number of Apples" you would add into the Automation Widget: [[current_value]] + 100

This means you have the power to imagine and create any type of "Rewards", "Gamification" or "Points" system and easily add or subtract value from a Target's total when a specific Trigger is activated.

Custom Field Date Operations

Within the Set Custom Field Value Automation option you can perform simple math operations in a Date type Custom Field.

You can use the Current Value as the base operator using [[current_value]]. You can then add days, months, or years to this Current Value.

An example would be if you wanted to keep track of a membership. You can set an Automation to update this field when an Invoice is paid. Then you would be able to keep track of this visually by adding one month to the Current Value in the Custom Field "Paid through Date" which would be written like this: [[current_value]] + 1m.

If you "Enable Date Calculations" when working with a "Date" type Custom Field, you are able to modify the date by adding days, weeks, months or years in the following format: [[current_value]] + 1d ~OR~ [[current_value]] + 1w ~OR~ [[current_value]] + 1m ~OR~ [[current_value]] + 1y (Ex. to add 1 year to the date value stored in the Custom Field, enter: [[current_value]] + 1y)
