Updating a column on button press


I have a reasonably simple problem to describe so I’m hoping the solution is simple as well.
I have data in a database that has columns like this:
Name || Time || Amount || Paid

The “Paid” column is just boolean values and what I want to do is have a button press activate a workflow that updates “paid” where Name = {dropdown list’s value}
But I can’t for the life of me figure out how to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.

You mean as a conditional. So only update paid when a certain dropdown’s value equals X?

If so, add a step to your workflow to update the paid boolean value. On the actual workflow event, you’ll see an “only when” option. Go ahead and input the criteria to only update it when dropdown X value = X.

Does that make sense?


I’m not sure we are on the same page, or I just don’t follow.

The drop down is to select a persons name and on that event it displays all that persons information where paid = “no”
Then, if I pay them, I am going to click a button. It is at this button press that I need to update that persons “no” values to “yes” values.
