Automation: Automatically click on a button first day of the month?


With the addition of automations in Airtable, I was wondering if it was possible to automatically click on a button each 1st of the month? I’ve seen the triggers “new record in view”, but not scheduled ones (for example: every day, every month, 1st day of the month, etc.)
Do you know if that is possible?

Thank you

To get an automation to run on the first of the month, you need a formula field to control timing of the automation.

For example, this field will return the current day:


Then you can run an automation with a record meets conditions trigger when that field is 1.

Finally, the automation cannot “press a button”. You will need to create an action that does the same thing that the button does.
