Triggers in synced tables

    When a synced table updates and a formula field is changed, does that trigger notifications/automations? I know it won't in a typical table, but am not sure if in a synced table if that is considered as the 'record being modified'.

    Or do I need to sync through the actual field that is changing the formula (currently in my use case I am only syncing the formula field).

    Changes to a Sync table whether they be to a scalar data entry field or formula field will trigger notifications. However, while I have not tested it is likely that they will be seen as multi record notifications.

    If you need individual change notifications to be triggered I suspect that you would have to set up a pipeline which would be triggered by the change and have it cause another field to change which would trigger the individual email notification.

    For example setting a date time field to the current date and time and using that to trigger the individual email notifications.
