Is it possible to trigger webhooks in a specific order?

    I have two webhooks, one to purge child records and then another to add child records.  Is it possible to order them so that the purge happens first?  There are instances where I think the add webhook happens first and then the purge removes these records.

    I was once told by the webhook developer down at Quick Base that the answer is no.  If they get triggered at the same time, then they could go into separate Queues and it would be random which ones got done first.  The exception is if can have a trigger for the Purge and then set the trigger for the Add to be based off the Purge executing, then they would be in order.

    Since I am purging and adding to the same table, it looks like I'll need to have a separate table where I can flag when the purge has been triggered.

    Appreciate the help, I'll see where this leads me.
