When Do a Search For

If I want a workflow to run when a condition is true, and that condition depends on searching the data baset how often will the database of my app be searched to check if the condition is true? I don’t want to slow my application down by searching the database repeatedly when its unnecessary.

Any advise is much appreciated.

I don’t know the detailed specifics on how it works under the hood, but a Do a Search for Result is basically ‘live’, meaning that changes made in the database are instantly reflected in the app. If you have a list of users for example, and you add one more, the list will automatically update.

There are several ways you could connect an action to these changes, for example when a :count changes, etc. It depends on what you want to do specifically.
