Hi everyone, I’ve created

a Bulk Action that consists of:

  1. status change of field [status] - “record sent” 2) gotowebsite - to run google script (adds records to another table) 3) status change of field [status] - “record saved”

After selecting the “eligible” records, the system still does not provide me with the option to select the action at the table view.

Its only when I select one of the records that I see the icon for the action.

Is Grouped execution not possible for bulk actions?

Well, a couple of things.

If you have a Navigate action (gotowebsite) then nothing else in the composite action can run. So you need to make navigate the last step.

For a composite action to be applicable to a set of records, each individual action in it should also have that property. The navigate action doesn’t — it cannot be applied to a set of records.

I think what you really need here is an action that is a “fire-and-forget” http post for your step #2. Right? Without that, this scenario is not going to work the way you want.

@praveen Thanks Praveen. I’ll adjust the action so that the gotowebsite is the last action.

@Daisy_Ramirez Ive implemented the action with an inline display for now
