Automations run while editing

Hi guys!

So, first time using the community part of this.

I have an automation that notifies me when a certain document expires, so it basically just checks for an expiry date.

However, I’ve run into the following issue:

A document is set to expire on the 1st of August 2021 (01-08-2021).
In the interim, and before it expires, I get said document updated, so that it now expires 1st of August 2022 (01-08-2022).

While I’m editing the date of said document, the field that does the date-check then sees that I’ve changed it to a “01-”, and thereby thinks something has expired and then shoots out an e-mail via the automation.

Has anyone encountered a similar issue, and did you find a solution for it?

Thanks @ScottWorld!

The thread you referenced solved the issue, thank you. I’ll make a feature-request to the automations-element, that the possibility of adding a certain timeframe for e-mail sendage be added.
