Hello! 

I'm running into an issue when using "Find Records" with Conditional Logic automations. In past, I thought I could use Conditional Logic automations to update each record in a list of records but now it seems those automations won't run unless the automation is set up as "Run as a List". 

 

However, there's not currently an option to use both Conditional Logic automations and Run the automation through a list. 

 

Is there any other way around this issue other than writing a custom script? I'm glad there are custom script options, but I came to Airtable for the no-code, so I haven't had time to take a course on Javascript yet... 🙂

 

Any help is appreciated!

Yeah, unfortunately, you can’t combine conditional actions and repeating actions.

There is a clunky workaround that I discuss in this podcast episode, but the #1 best possible solution is to use Make, which is a no-code automation tool. Make has none of the limitations that Airtable’s automations have, and it has infinitely more power than Airtable’s automations.

There is a small learning curve with Make, which is why I created this basic navigation video to help. I also provide the links to a few other Make training resources there as well.
