Viewing automation run logs

  • Updated

Spreadsheet.com stores a run log of every automation execution. After setting up your automations you may wish to check how they're running or trace a change made by an automation. Track when automations ran, what actions they performed, if they were successful or not, and trace the exact triggers, conditions, and actions executed.

For any of these tasks or more, you can use the Automation Activity menu (for all automations), Run an Automation History report (for each automation), or check the Automation's Run Log (for each run of the automation). All of which can be accessed by navigation to the automations menu.

Run history

You can also access the run history and individual run logs for each automation from the Worksheet Automations panel.

Choosing to run history on any one automation will show you each run of that automation, the number of actions performed, the status, and link you to a run log with more detail on that automation's exact run.

The run log lets you dig into what triggered, what conditions were met, which actions ran, and what the action looked like.
