Error Handling for Automations

It would be great to make automation error messages more sophisticated. For instance it would be very helpful to build an error log in a table in order to assign errors to certain users or mark them as resolved etc. (at the moment the person who triggered the automation receives the error notification / email).

Especially when dealing with more complex bases and / or using scripts in automations, errors are pretty common and a useful part of the development process. At the moment unfortunately not useful enough :slight_smile:

Totally agree!

Actually, as it stands now, it’s even worse than you described above.

The person who triggered the automation is NOT the person who receives the error message email. It’s the very last person who turned off & on the automation! :man_facepalming: :man_facepalming: :man_facepalming:

It’s a terrible error system that allows for a lot of errors to fall through the cracks.

Be sure to email support@airtable.com about improving this. I’ve been meaning to email them about this, but I don’t think I have yet.

You’re completely right and that’s what I meant, just didn’t express it clearly. Given that someone had to implement it that way and doing that also took time, they could’ve at least added a field where you can specify which collaborator should receive the error… :smiley: I’ll send an email to support as well!

Totally agree! Thanks for sending them an email… I’ll send one as well later this afternoon.
