This Product Ideas board is currently undergoing updates, but please continue to submit your ideas.
UPDATE 2: last modified time is now available to everyone! You can learn more about it here.
UPDATE: The last modified time beta is now closed as we get ready for a general release. Thanks to all of the testers who made this beta a success.
Hi folks! We’re very excited to announce that we’re beta testing a last modified time field type, as well as a LAST_MODIFIED_TIME formula function. Many thanks to the users who’ve posted specific, detailed feedback about their needs and use cases with regard to this feature, like @Arlo_Haskell, @Deborah_Buck, and @Jordan_Friedman. We read everything that is posted here in the forums and your feedback is incredibly valuable for us when we’re planning the product roadmap and developing new features!
If you’re a Pro plan user and you’re interested in testing out the last modified time field type and/or the LAST_MODIFIED_TIME formula function—and giving us your feedback—please sign up using this form. (Note: this is a different form from our standard beta signup form, and it requires you to fill out a couple of additional questions.)
As you are all aware, this is a highly anticipated feature, and there are many users who would like to get beta access. However, for technical reasons and to ensure an optimal user experience, rollout for this beta will be conducted in small, limited batches. (In practical terms, that means that it might take a while for you to get access.)
Is there any way to subscribe to that View, so we get notified of new features?
Anybody know how to use LAST_MODIFIED_TIME value to figure out that a view is updated?
Is there a way to get all the views that a record belongs to?
Why did the “Last Modified Timestamp” topic that had so many requests is gone?
It’s not gone; it was merged into another topic covering the same ground. As much as possible, we prefer to keep similar discussions consolidated into single topics. I will now merge this topic into that topic as well, to keep the forums tidy.
The last modified time beta is now closed as we are readying the feature for a general release.
Hi folks. The last modified time field and the
LAST_MODIFIED_TIME() formula function are now available for all! You can learn more about it in this support article.
A couple of things you might want to know about these two new features:
Can you have formula that detects when a status changes to a certain data point
For example if update a status from “Assigned” to “In-Progress” it will update the LMD, but if i Update it from “Assigned” to “Closed” it would do nothing?
Yes you can use an IF. But this means if the status changes from Assigned to In-Progress and then to Closed, you will lose the date which was when the status changed from Assigned to In-Progress.
This would’ve been great if we can keep the last modified date of when the status changed to a certain pre-defined value regardless of what other value is added after this.
