Sort records after Find Records automation

Enjoying the automation features of Airtable.

It would be great to be able to sort the records found via the “Find Records” automation before sending them to the next step.

As of now, they are sorted by the time the records were created, which is logical but seldom what we’re looking for.

Wow, I didn’t even realize this issue existed until you posted about it. This is a large omission from Automations, and I can see how this would be a big frustration.

I would highly recommend emailing to ask them to please add this into Automations, since they don’t pay much attention to these forums.

Right now, your only workarounds for this issue would be to:

  1. Write your own custom JavaScript to sort the records. Hopefully, someone can chime in here with a script that can help you with this.


  1. Use a no-code/low-code automation platform like Integromat. (I am an Integromat Partner & Airtable Consultant, and this link contains my referral code.)

Is it just me, or is this still an issue??

Yes. See the newest thread on this topic below.

And be sure to email about this.
