Help please! I cannot figure this out. (I thought I'd posted this earlier but it doesn't look like it went through....)
I have about 5000 people in a base and I need to send individual emails to them, so 5000 email messages total. The emails will contain a link to a form prepopulated with a couple pieces of their individual info, and I need them to update their info using the form. I had everything working but apparently overlooked the possibility that somebody would limit the number of these emails that I can send. I don't know whether the problem is with Airtable, or Gmail. The Gmail account being used is a Workspace account (not a free Gmail.com account).
What are the limits for this sort of thing and who are they imposed by? Is this something I just can't do? If so, what's my alternative? I need this ASAP so be grateful for any help.
I have another problem with this task. I started sending out emails before I remembered that there is (?) a limit on the number of individual emails I can send using Google Workspace. The automation is triggered when I change value in a single-select field from empty to "Send email now". Here's the problem:
I triggered the automation for 952 records. At that point, I turned the automation off (because I was realizing I had a problem).
The automation, when it runs to completion, changes the value in the trigger field to "Email Sent". 231 records show this value.
But looking in the Sent folder of the Google Workspace account, there are a little over 500 emails that appear to have gone out.
I don't understand the discrepancy between 231 marked as sent in Airtable, and 500+ in the Sent folder in Google Workspace. I can only guess that there's a latency in the automation that caused the next to last step of the automation to run (sending the email) and that the last step in the automation (update the sent-status field) did NOT run to completion because I turned the automation off. Does this make any sense at all?
