Is it possible to trigger an automation when something doesn’t happen?
Yes, it is.
Ari Meisel has discovered a way to start automations when something doesn't happen.
This automation is perfect for when you need a regular report from your team. When they don't send it, this automation will trigger a reminder to them, unless they submit the report.
How does it work?
- Report is submitted via Jotform
- Information is submitted into Google Sheets via Zapier
- Automation resets so the next due date is set
- If the report is not submitted on time, a reminder email is sent
Any additional cost or setup fees related to the apps involved are not included, and are at your own cost. You will also require a paid (Pro Level) Zapier account to run the automations. We may substitute other apps or platforms where it is necessary.
The 7 (seven) day delivery period for Automation Hacks commences from the time that you provide us will all information, logins and material in order for the build to be completed, and we have acknowledged receipt.
