Hello

I am putting together an automation which will email our staff their rota, I would like to do this from a view in the base, rather than an interface as I am yet to find interfaces particularly useful

I don't see any way to do this - unless I do something funky like call a webhook from a script on a button in the view. Am I missing anything?

Thanks!

Richard

Nope you're not missing anything I'm afraid.  I usually just create a checkbox field that triggers the automation and make the automation untick the checkbox once it's finished

Ah thanks - and I assume this gives you the record that was selected as input to the script? I did a fix which uses a webhook (and I pass some data in the body) but your suggestion seems better!

Yeap that's right!
