I get an email that An Alert or Action rule has become invalid.  What I am trying to do is use the Modified (date) field to send an approval request to someone if anything in the row changes.  I think what is happening is that the Approval request is then recording "Approved" in the system generated "Approver Approval" column and triggering itself.  Is there a workaround to accomplish what I am trying to do?


I am seeing something very strange in the alerts, it is only allowing me to 'notify someone' and the only option is the modified by or owner fields; in the past I have always used 'assigned to' field so that the person who is assigned a task get an email; are you seeing this as well?  Thanks, Chris 


Hi Roy and Chris,

Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s) or some screenshots? That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

Have a fantastic week!
