Automation Trigger based on specific single select

Hi there!

I want to create an automation trigger based on selecting a specific single select input. Is it possible to have the automation discern between which one is selected or just that the field was changed?

For instance, my single select is a “status” tab and want to automate different types of emails based on the current status.

Welcome to the community, @Sam_Furie!

No, you would need to create different automations for this — one automation for each status.

Alternatively, you could write your own custom JavaScript with your own conditional logic. In that case, you could combine it all into one automation.

thank you @ScottWorld
what about automations based on numbers. Do they work if it’s like:
If x is equal or bigger than 40, then proceed? I’m getting error messages with that.

That could be done with a “record matches conditions” trigger at the beginning of an automation, but you can’t do that in the middle of an automation to create conditional logic.

For conditional logic, you could do that with Integromat, which is a no-code/low-code automation platform. Or you could write your own custom JavaScript code.
