How do I add "time since' in only when of a workflow?

Hey All,

Maybe I am overthinking this or maybe it’s not possible.

Here is the idea.

  1. Write a record at a time, say, 9:00 am.
  2. If someone tries to edit that record, say, 10 minutes from when they wrote it, I want to show a popup that says “is this a mistake?”
  3. If the time is greater than ten minutes or so, it should not show that popup. I have played with all of the options in the only when of the workflow and cant seem to get it. Maybe I am missing something.

I would be so grateful for any help. Thank you!

Hey @ben4

You would need to create two workflows:

  • When ‘Edit’ is clicked, only when This Record’s Creation date > Current date/time + seconds -600 --> Show popup
  • When ‘Edit’ is clicked, only when This Record’s Creation date < Current date/time + seconds -600 --> Don’t show popup

Hope that helps

Thank you for getting back to me. That isnt working, see this loom:https://www.loom.com/share/385471512d8c437cb0c4f8e4016d6614

That is where I was trying to go when I first started.

Thank you :slight_smile:

Ah yeah my bad @ben4, can you then try the following instead:

  • When ‘Edit’ is clicked, only when Current date/time +seconds -600 < This Record’s Creation date --> Show popup
  • When ‘Edit’ is clicked, only when Current date/time +seconds -600 > This Record’s Creation date --> Don’t show popup

Don’t feel bad. It’s one of those things that is so obvious once you see it, but not when you don’t know it.

Haha, this happens to me more often than Id like to admit. I am in this app for so many hours a day that I get very narrow minded. When I take a break, things get clear, thing is, when do I ever take a break? ahahah
