Reminder if Nothing has Changed in a row


I am trying to add a reminder or notification to people (identified in the row) if they have not updated anything in the row in the last month. Is there a way to do this? If not, I would also be okay if having a notification/reminder go out to people (identified in the row) if a specific column has not been updated in the last month. Thanks!

    Hi @sophiaashepard, create three columns:

    Modified Date: use the modified date column type

    ModifiedDaterRef: with the column formula =DATEONLY([Modified Date]@row)

    SendAlert: use the column formula =IF(ModifiedDateRef@row<=TODAY(-30), "Send", "")

    Then, use a time-based automation that runs once a day (to do this, change the "Run Once: On" to "Custom" and in the resulting menu select the appropriate run period).

    Use the SendAlert column as your trigger to send a message. I.e. IF SendAlert = "Send", THEN send a message.
