Allow Reports to Change Data

workflow

Hi! I am trying to have a report change the data of a cell. My problem is that I need this to happen after a certain time and not a certain action. Is that possible?

I am not exactly certain what you mean when you write “I need this to happen after a certain time”.

A Report can invoke a Data Change action at a specific time you specify. For example, you could invoke a Data Change action each Weekday at midnight, or everyday at noon.

A Report cannot invoke a Data Change action a specified period of time after an update has occurred. For example, a Report cannot invoke a Data Change exactly 1 hour after you have added or updated a record.

In short, the Report runs at a precisely scheduled time. It does not run after a fixed delay following an Add or Update.

Sorry for being unclear!

I am fine scheduling it to happen daily, weekly, etc. But getting it to invoke the data change is what I’m having issues with. I don’t see a “Change Data” option in the Reaction section under “Reports” as I do with “Workflows”.

The “Change Data” option is only available when you specify “ForEachRowInTable” in the “Create Report” property.
