Currently, the button field allows you to run an extension script. I have to maintain separate automation and extension script that performs the same actions. Would be ideal to be able to run an automation like interface buttons do.
Support for multiple triggers would also be helpful. For example, I could have a trigger for when a record meets certain conditions and a button trigger whenever manual execution is desired.
An automation script where I think this would be useful is one that creates or updates a record/object in a third party system.
