Is there a way to get email updates instantly when a status changes?

The answer is yes 🎉 
You can receive email updates as soon as a status changes in a specific board thanks to our automations. How does it work? Keep reading to find out. 👇

 

Step 1: Add it to your board

To add an Automation, go to the board you want to create an Automation for and click on the Automate button, located on the upper right of your screen.

 You will then see a list of available automation flows to use as displayed below:

If you select the category "notify someone when", you will see a list of different recipes. All have the purpose to notify you when a change is made.

Step 2: Set your parameters

Once you've picked your automation flow, you will need to add your parameters. Anywhere in the flow which is underlined is a parameter. In our example, let's say that whenever the "Copywriting" status column updates to "Done", the associated assignee in the "Editor" person column, will be notified.

After clicking on the “notify” parameter you should type out what you want your notification to say. Then, for the purpose of this example, select the “Editor” column for the “assignee”.

After clicking “Add to Board”, the Automation will be turned on.
 
Now each time the Copywriting status is changed to Done, the person assigned in the Editor column will automatically be notified on the bell and by email.
