I have a data base with a type of Events. some of the fields are:
Max Recurring Limit
I want to change the date of an event when current date/time > date. And also when the event is recurring and the max recurring limit has not been reached. I have tried to do this with the normal workflows but the appropriate fields that I need to do the conditions don’t show up.
I have read up on backend workflows and I am still stuck. Please help.
I managed to set up a recurring event on the backend workflow, but it only takes a type of thing (not a list like a need). I don’t think a database trigger will work for my use case. And I couldn’t also see teh right fields I needed for my condition on API workflows.
HI @adamhholmes I tried to use a backend workflow, but I couldn’t see “This Event”> I need it to check this condition “Recurrence Count < This Event’s Recurrence Max Limit”. The condition checks if the event has recurred the max number of times it is supposed to. Is there something that I am missing?
@georgecollier I tried to create a backend workflow, then when I tried to bring it to the frontend to trigger it, I noticed it only accepted a type of thing and not a list (mine is a list of events). So recurring event didn’t work either. Did you mean something else? Please see the attached screenshot.
When you create a recurring event (e.g starting tomorrow and recurring 10 times), you should actually create 11 single events. Each event should have an ID / unique string that shows they’re all related. It’s not a Bubble feature, it’s just database design.
I have managed to get the API workflow to work now. What does the number in the intervals mean? Is it the time before it runs the workflow on the next record? (Eg Run for first item, wait 3 seconds, run for second item, wait three seconds, run for third item…) or is it the frequency it runs the workflow on the whole datathing?
