I have table that’s been in use and now I need to simply flag a record with a single check box. I have a automation to do this and new records get the check as desired. How the heck to I get the automation to run against the existing records?

Automations will not run for records that met whatever the trigger’s conditions were before the Automation was turned on.

If all you need to do is check a box, why don’t you just copy a “checked” box from one record and paste it into all the others?

I suppose I can filter on what would be my conditionals and then do that, I was hoping for a more elegant solution!
