Hi Everyone,

I have two automations that I need to combine into one. Is there anyway to merge the two or move pieces from one to the other without having to rebuild the content? 

I would have set it up as one automation to start with, but I was new at this and didn't see how to do so at the time. We're bumping up against automation limits, so it's important to combine them.

Since they both trigger the sending of emails with a lot of inserted fields, it's a hassle to do it manually as even if I copy and paste, I have to manually re-insert the custom fields. 

 

I tried searching but only got results related to automations that merge records, not anything about merging the automations themselves. 

Thanks for any insights you can provide! 

Regards,

Anne

Hi @Anne_Gonzalez ,
Unfortunately, it is not possible to merge two automations; the triggers or settings you create in one cannot be imported into the other. If they share the same trigger, as seems to be the case in your situation, you can manage everything through a single automation. Unfortunately, you will need to delete one and update what is missing in the other.

I hope this has been helpful to you.

No, that's not possible in Airtable.

Since you're bumping up against Airtable's automation limits, have you considered rebuilding your automations in Make instead? Make is the most powerful — yet absolute cheapest — automation platform that can be used with Airtable. There are essentially no limits in Make.

There is a small learning curve with Make, which is why I created this basic navigation video to help. I also provide the links to a few other Make training resources there as well.

p.s. If you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire the world's top Airtable & Make consultant to help you with any of this, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consulting — ScottWorld

Thanks for confirming that it's not possible. We're not in a position to add another subscription.
