Hi everyone!

I am excited to share with all of you that as of today conditional automations are now available in Airtable for all users.

Conditional logic lets you trigger groups of automation actions only when certain conditions have been met, ensuring your automations are primed to do exactly what you want. Once you’ve set up conditional logic, Airtable will check the first conditional group you’ve set—if the conditions for a group have been met, the actions in that group will run.

A few common questions:

Do conditional actions count towards the total number of 25 actions allowed per automation?
Yes, conditional actions do count toward the total number of actions allowed for each automation.

Can I nest conditions in automations?
We do not currently allow for nesting conditional ​​groups in automations at this time.

I'm needing Conditional Automations to be enhanced with Conditional Grouping. Currently, all conditions are locked to either AND or OR, and there's no way to mix and match.


The above screenshot shows this limitation - when I'm using OR, there's no way to create an AND group.

Conditional Logic Grouping for Automations would allow their creation to become far easier and more flexible. Yes, there are filtered Grid View work-arounds - but this adds a lay of obfuscation - as often it's more desirable to simply create the required logic directly within the Automation that's executing itself.

Not being able to using Grouping within the Conditional Logic is annoying to say the least...
