  • 1.  Pipeline checking if file attachment has changed

    Posted 05-23-2022 14:01
    When a record changes (trigger) I want to be able to tell if a specific file attachment has changed. With most fields I can compare the field {{a.name}} with the previous value {{a.$prev.name}} to detect a change in that specific field. This does not seem to work with file attachmenty field types. Is there a different syntax?

    Try making a formula text field called [File Name] 
    with a formula field of 

    ToText([Name])

    where I presume that [Name] is your file attachment field.

    Then try  prev in that.
