Airtable’s automations don’t let you sort records, but there is one secret trick to making this work.
When you find records by condition, the sort order is random & unpredictable.
However, when you find records by a view instead of a condition, the sort order should match the view in most cases.
You need to make sure that there is no grouping on the view, in order to make this work. If there is grouping on the view, the sort order will become random again.
However, Airtable has another major limitation with finding records, which is that you can’t have more than 100 records as the result of performing a find.
To avoid all of these limitations — and for complete control over sorting your records whenever you need to sort them — you can always use Make’s Airtable automations instead of Airtable’s native automations.
