Alert based on user who commented?

Hi there! I'm looking to make an alert that only goes out when a new comment is added, AND if it's a specific person who commented. Is there a way to make the alert contingent on who specifically adds a comment?

Thanks!

    Hi @smartsheetuser220

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You can add the Latest Comment Column and add criteria to check the name in the cell.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

  • Hi Andrée, I actually tried to implement it this way, and was unsucessful. I believe it's because it takes smartsheet more time to update the Latest Comment than it does to run a flow when a new comment is added (so the Latest Comment it is referencing in the flow is actually the delayed second-to-last comment). Any other thoughts? Thanks!
