I have 2 Airtbale Bases.

One of my Airtables is importing a view from the other. The sync is 1 way and I see the data change as it is updated on the other base.

I have some automation setup that looks for updates on specific fields.

I noticed a load of automation shad not run, logged into Airtable with the data import and suddenly all the automations ran.

Is this the expected behaviour? Is there a way to make sure the autoamtions run even if no-one logs in for a few days?

Thanks

Yes, this is expected behavior. The solution is to create an time-triggered automation in the sync-to base, like an automation that runs every hour and finds records with values that match x. Running that automation “wakes up” the base, which will trigger the sync and the consequent automations.

Hi @pressGO_design - thanks for the tip!

I have implemented something along these lines which makes perfect sense
