How to have Action triggers once, but not on all Record Edits?

Publication date: April 30, 2019


Anyway to prevent “Actions” to run only once and from re-triggering after a record has been edited? I have trigger for when a File field is “not empty.” Anytime that record is edited, the Action gets runs again if a file has already been uploaded.

Is there a way or Condition that only triggers if “on change” or something like that? I also tried an extra validation field in the Action conditions (yes/no) but since its value is saved it is only useful for the initial edit.

1) Anyway to run Actions once per-record or prevent from running
2) Anyway to reset a form field to a value – regardless of what was saved in the record?

Workflow to help: Person X submits initial form → Person Y receives notice from Allow End-User Edits Notification, and uploads a file to that record via Edit Records → Action is triggered by the file being uploaded to the record and email sent to Person Z

I have created a simple (test) Orders database using your system.
Now I want to create a form on my website where a customer can enter an order number and order date, then they can view the details of their order on the same web page or a different web page on my site.

Please can you tell me how to do this.

Thank you

I have created a form in which a representative has to fill in a field. This document will be mailed to the manager who will evaluate the application/request. If he decides to give it a ‘go’ by filling in/submitting a second field, the third person will be informed by mail. This person will complete the form with necessary data. In my example I have created three forms ( representative, manager and administration).

What people may see in the form:
representative ==> field 1
manager ==> field 1 and 2
administration ==> field 1 and 2 and 3

First I have created a form “administration” in which the three fields are available.
Secondly I have made a clone of form administration (name = “manager”), removed field 3. The data are submitted to form “administration”.
Finally I have made a clone of form manager (name=“representative”) and have removed field 2. The data are submitted to form “manager”.

I don’t know if this setup is allowed or is ok for use. It doesn’t work since it is not submitting data tot the main table (“administration”).

I find it strange that after setup I loose the possibility in the second table “manager” on advanced settings, it doesn’t react anymore.

Can I receive some help please?



Limit Date Acceptance on a Form

I have a form for Leave where the blokes fill in their first day off work and their anticipated return to work date. How would I generate a pop up message and stop the form processing if they entered a date between a black out period?

In other words if I want to say in May no leave every year. Regardless of when they apply between 1st of May and 31st of May the form wont process and pops a warning which I can customise to say no leave during this period?
