I submit a form and this form then sends a record via API and then comes back with an answer that it deposits into another knack field. That’s all fine and working.
Is there a way that I can update a connected record, which is associated with the answer field after a set period of time? If I attempt to update the connected field on form submission it will update the field with emptyness because the API has not returned the data.
I could use a status process (multiple choice) to mark the record as processing to then have this appear in a grid view where I can see that the record needs a second update, but I wondered if there was any other delayed automation I could use?
In fact I did that, on the form submit I set a status on the record to SENT TO API, and then in a grid view underneath I include the form details and a cropped version of the API response and an action button that will update a connected record and set the status to “Attached to project”. It’s not perfect automation, but it’s pretty close
