Hello – I have two tables and have an automation running from conditions met on the first table to create new records on another table. I have several automations running between these tables with no issues for some reason, one of them keeps creating two extra records. I’ve even tried deleting it and recreating it. Any ideas? You can see here that it is only meant to create 5 records but it’s creating 7.

@Bill_Felix I figured it out! One of the triggers hadn’t been updated to correlate to the automation so I was actually triggering two automations. User error. Thank you@

Out of curiosity, which Action are you referencing in each of the Create Records for your data inputs? Is it the original Trigger, or are you Creating a New Record based on the previous Action ( Create record )?
