Just testing notifications on a table. I set the notification rule to react when changes are made to entries in a specific table. It reacts once when I make changes just after saving, but not when more changes are subsequently made. Am I missing something here?
Welcome to the SeaTable Forum.
To answer your question, we’d need more details. Maybe a screenshot of your notification rule?
Thank you for your quick response. Screenshot attached. I am currently on a free account (if this is relevant, perhaps).
OK, so I see: when records are changed, the selected collaborator should be notified.
- Which values types are changed? Because when you change “Link to other records” it’s not considered as change in the current record…
- Which notifications are expected? Because email only comes if you don’t read them in the base editor, and the emails are sent hourly. One further pre-condition is, you have allowed email notifications in your personal settings.
There are a series of text fields that are primarily entered first in this table (e.g. course name). There are also date fields with date as the column type. Also, if a row is deleted or added, I would like to know where. One collaborator added a field and I got a notification. But any subsequent entries he made were not notified.
Another query: Is it possible for the colour of a row to change automatically if changes have been made?
Thanks for your answer. I see, when your collaborator changes the values in a row, you will only get a notification for the first change. We’ll have a look!
Change the color of a row by changing is currently not possible. But it’s a nice idea, we can take this as a feature request.
Thanks Karlheinz. I would be happy to be used as a tester. You can write in German or English to me.
There is a 5 minutes threshold for notification of row changes.
I thought that might be the case.
So this is not really a bug, I guess? The 5 minutes interval is not configurable, because frequency notifications could be a minus to the user experience.
Couple of things I noticed:
- There is a change log, so can see who changed what.
- Even where multiple records are changed, the notification only applies to the first one.
