I would like to order the records, find by 'find records" in automations, based on the date field. Now, al the records are views complete random...


Does anybody has any idea?

Sadly, when you find by condition, the order is random. However, when you find by a view, the sort order should match the view in most cases.

But for more precise control & very advanced control over sort order when finding records, you may want to use Make’s Airtable automationsThere is a small learning curve with Make, which is why I created this basic navigation video to help. 




@ScottWorld thanks. However, I am using this automations for creating invoices. In a large view of many records, the records according to this customer are found for addition to the specific invoice. 

Maybe I am a fool, but I can not create an idea how to combine this with the 'view' function :). 


Ah, I see what you're saying. You know, I actually think this might still be possible with Airtable's Automations, but it would definitely be tricky to setup. Alli Allosa discussed a very similar automation on this episode of the BuiltOnAir podcast. However, I would probably recommend that you use Make instead, because it would much more straightforward to configure in Make.
