Hi all,

I have a question about exactly when an 'update' change type notification would be sent via Airtable new Webhooks API.

For example, say I'm writing some text into a 'Single Line Text' or 'Long Text' field, will my webhook subscription for 'update' notifications be called multiple times as the text is being entered, or will it debounce and wait some x number of seconds after I've stopped typing?

In the documentation for webhook notification delivery, it states:

If multiple changes occur in rapid succession, then we may generate only a single notification for them.

Does typing text into a field, at a normal typing speed, fall into the category of 'rapid succession'?
