I’m new to Airtable and setting up an order form for a local restaurant that is closed due to covid-19 but taking orders for delivery to help support the staff.

They are taking orders for fresh bread, and would like to trigger a notification (via email or slack or whatever) to go to one person every 16 orders so that they know when to start a baking a batch. Is there a way to set this up on this platform?

Any help is appreciated!

Hi @Amy_Smith,

Welcome to Airtable Community ! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes:

There is already a Slack Integration that you can use. But the 16 orders thing is the part where it will get tricky. I would suggest that you set up a View where when 16 orders are done they are shown, but this will have to be done a bit manually.

If you want I can take a look at your base and try to help more.

I wish you and your community all the best, stay safe!

Thanks for your generous offer! I had set up the Slack integrations and they’re happy with how that’s working for now, so I think we’re good. Thank you!
