Using Airtable’s new Last Modified Fields with Integromat
Updated: May 13, 2019
In this post we are going to look at using Airtable’s new Last Modified field to drive processes in Integromat. This is really a game changer for Airtable - making it possible to do so much more with Integromat and Zapier…
To show the principles of this, I am going to keep the scenario quite simple - lets assume that we want to be sent an email whenever the status of an entry in our Company table changes.
The Airtable Base
In Airtable, we need a Company table with a Status field with suitable options (say Lead, Prospect, Client and Lost). We can then create a new field which we’ll call Status Last Changed:
Depending on when we want to receive our email this may be all we need - for example, an Integromat scenario could be triggered by the Status Last Updated field.
Setting up this Simple Scenario
This is going to be a simple 2 step Integromat scenario - first a Watch Records step and then a send email:
So there we have it - a process to send an email whenever the status of a record changes - really simple now with the latest changes to Integromat and Airtable!
