Logged fields and automations

  • 1.  Logged fields and automations

    Posted 7 days ago
    When using a logged multiple choice field, it logs the name of the current user who selects an option. However, when using an automation to select that field, it defaults to logging it under the admin name. 

    Is there a way I can tell it to log the current user when the automation was triggered? This doesn't sound possible, as automations can be tripped in multiple ways, but perhaps there are some creative solutions or alternatives.

    You would have to use a child table to log the history.  Then you can populate a field called like Changed By with the user who triggered the Automation..
