Is there a way to have an automation run on a schedule vs time/date triggered?
Hi @BradArtman, nice to see you and thanks for your post!
As of now, time-based automations are triggered based on date and time data in the your tables.
One way to achieve your ask would be to have a table in which you create a schedule of email notifications, and then set up an automation, which sends them when those dates are reached.
For example, I created a table with a schedule of when to send reports:
And here's an automation, which will send the emails when the dates are reached:
Hope that helps! I'll note that others have requested recurring automations as well, so I'll be sure to include your ask on the improvement request to our team.
Thanks! Is there a way to trigger based on date and time? Or will it always fire via Midnight UTC on the date?
Yes, you can set up an automation to trigger at a particular time.
As shown below, you can specify if it will run at a certain time, or at an offset (in weeks, days, hours, minutes) before or after a time specified in your table data (Point to a column formatted to Date & Time):
As you noted, time in Honeycode is in UTC, so be mindful of the conversion to your desired timezone. You can check out this link with more info on this: UTC & Time Zone Conversion.
Let us know if this helps!
Ah yes, I figured it out. Thanks much! As always you and the team are SUPER helpful!
Great! And of course, @BradArtman, we're always happy to help!
