Can I restrict change alerts to not send when the update is from automations?


I have automation set up to alert me of changes to my sheet but I do not want the alert if the change is from or Is there a way to restrict that?

    Hi @Emma Higgins,

    Does your sheet have a "modified by" system column? You'll need this system-generated field in your sheet so you can then filter your alert automation by this field. Once this column has been created, add a condition block to filter out rows that were last modified by either of those emails you mentioned, see snip below.

    I hope this does the trick for you!

    SMART! I'll try that, thank you!
