Slowing auto save of records or another workaround

Did you mean: 

I have setup an automation to send an email when a record has had changes, but the auto saving of records is so quick that just changing a text field can result it many emails being sent as every character or two when typing, it updates and the email automation kicks in and sends another email. Can anyone think of a field type or setup in automation that can be change so that it only sends one email when a full change has been made to a record?

Cheers for any ideas

Yeah, it’s a bummer that Airtable doesn’t wait until we leave the field.

You could use a checkbox field or a single-select field to trigger the automation.
