Automatic links & increased scope of workflow variables

Automatic Links

Relationships between your collections and records just got a whole lot more sophisticated! With automatic links, you can add a custom link to another collection or record from an existing record and then automatically sync that value with a lookup value. For those Excel nerds among us, it functions similarly to a vlookup function. 


For an example and more information on how to use automatic links in your collections, see our guide here: https://guides.noloco.io/data-collections/collections/automatic-links

Increased scope of workflow variables

Want to include detail about which user created or updated a record in your automated emails or webhooks? We’ve now increased the scope of workflow variables to enable you to include data about the ‘logged in user’ that triggered that workflow.

Other UX Improvements

  • You can now update and delete user lists (where you maintain a list of users in an external data source like Airtable)
