Is automated workflow supposed to be slow?

09/20/21

Hi, I've recently been using Smartsheet and discovered the Automated Workflow feature. At first glance I thought it didn't work but after saving and thinking for 30 seconds, the sheet updated. My sheet is almost empty, I only made one to test the automated workflow and added a single command. How is it that it takes a whole 20 to 30 seconds to react and can I do something about it?


Thank you and have a nice day

    Hi @Matt Lep

    I hope you're well and safe!

    That sounds normal to me, and it can be longer than that as well. I'll get back to the post if I find the details.

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Excellent!

    I think it says that it can be up to 15 minutes before a change is registered, but I've never experienced it being that long.

    Happy to help!
