Yep, it’s a real problem.
And what’s even worse is the maximum number of RUNS per month per workspace.
Once you exceed your number of runs in a month, you can’t run ANY of your automations until the next month! You can’t even pay for more runs in your current month! So any automations that your business might depend on will effectively be shutdown until the following month. You literally have to wait around until the next month before you can use your automations again.
For now, until Airtable fixes all of this, if people are doing a LOT of automations in a month, I would recommend that people use Integromat’s Automations instead of Airtable’s Automations. It has none of the limitations of Airtable’s Automations, and it is significantly more advanced as well because it is an entire platform dedicated to automations.
