Feature update: Action level automation activity log ⚙️💡

Introducing, the action level automation activity log :eyes:

You can now view the status of every trigger, condition, and action in your automations.

What does this mean? It means you can drill down exactly where the automation went wrong and be directed on how you can fix it ASAP.

Troubleshooting automation issues just became a whole lot easier! Like this post if this is a feature you’ve started to use :computer_mouse: :+1:


One problem, and this is ancillary to the main feature, is the “report issue” is generic and sends to monday support. For third-party apps providing automation blocks, or integration, there should be a clear way to escalate to the developer.


Thank you Monday for this great additional feature.

I think there are some large opportunities for improvement regarding the interface and experience surrounding automations and integrations.
The current interface has slow load times, unreliable search and filter results, and makes it nearly impossible to manage boards with 30+ automations/integrations.
There are many different ways the UI could be reworked to allow for a much more streamlined experience for creating, updating, and reviewing the configurations, but I think the team needs to prioritize the following:

  • Require less clicks to get things done
  • Make it clear to the user if things are loading in the UI
  • Give builders an easy way to work on multiple automations at once

I’ve started using a separate board to plan for the automations I intend to implement. Without using something like a board to document it, I’m not sure I’d be able to accomplish the complex logic that some systems require. Tracking the automations with a board has allowed me to use statuses, updates, notes fields, and any other necessary fields to be able to document the system as it evolves over time.

This is an example of my first draft:

I think my board design also has a lot of room for improvement, but now I have something to help document and see the status of the automations on the board without having to use the unreliable automations UI.


Love this idea! It will definitely make it much easier to manage…
