What is the proposed idea/solution?

The automations list should be searchable by automation name. When there are lots of automations, finding the right one is annoying, even when organising them in sections. 

How does is solve the user problems?

Faster access, better experience.

How was this validated?

I struggle daily with it, and hope others find it useful, too.

Who is the target audience?

All Airtable devs.

Yes, totally agree! This would be a major help and improvement!

In the meantime, as a workaround, you might be able to use your web browser’s built-in search function to search for the automation name that you’re looking for.

+1 and adding that automations should have sortable + searchable metadata info the same way fields do in the "Manage Fields" tab. who created it, when was it last modified, who was the last person to modify it, etc. some of us have users that occasionally make a mess in the automations tab, and this info would be super helpful.

would also love to see automations included in Base Insights in some way, similar to Views! (e.g. "this automation has been turned off for four months, do you still need it", "this automation has only run once in six months, you sure you want it taking up one of your automation spots?")
