Hello everyone,

Tinkering with my garden automations and I have seasons on my mind. There’s a couple of items I’m working on and thinking about, and figured I may as well post my questions here to help advance my Airtable skills.

Firstly, spending time with a Switch statement, is it possible to stack cases? For example;

SWITCH(Month{Date}
,1,"Summer"
,2,"Autumn"
,3,'Autumn'
,4,'Autumn'
,5,'Winter'
,6,'Winter'
,7,'Winter'
,8,'Spring'
,9,'Spring'
,10,'Spring'
,11,'Summer'
,12,'Summer')
SWITCH(Month{Date}
,[1,2,12],"Summer"
,[3,4,5],"Autumn"
,[6,7,8],'Winter'
,[9,10,11],'Spring')

And what are peoples thoughts on having rolling seasons within a recurring calendar? Not too sure about this one though, trying to map it out still, so perhaps it’s more of a base design question. :thinking:

DATETIME_PARSE(DATETIME_FORMAT({Recurring Date},'MM/DD')&"/"&YEAR(NOW()))

No, it is not possible to stack cases as in your second example. Your first example should work fine.

Thanks Justin, if as a Community Leader, you have the ear of Airtable Devs, could you shuffle this to them for comment? Would make life easier if we could support a range within a Switch Statement. One day I’ll find to explore this further with an Automation script.

Unfortunately I don’t have the devs’ ears, at least not in a way that can influence any of their work. The “Community Leader” badge just means that a) I talk a lot, and b) some of it makes sense. :winking_face:
