Automations are the updated version of Triggers in Gridly - It helps embrace AI technologies to improve content and localization workflows by performing automated actions, all within the well-known spreadsheet interface and without any help from developers needed.
Automations allows you to set up custom trigger-action workflows right inside your Grid. This can allow you to save hours of your team’s time and reduce unnecessary communication. Learn how to build automations to tackle the repetitive tasks that slow down your productivity.
Automations can be found on the sidebar in a Grid:
For an automation to run, you need to have at least a trigger and an action. When you turn your automations on, it will run the action steps every time the trigger event occurs.
Only Admin and Owner, or Custom Roles which have the ability to manage projects are able to set up automations.
