Notification on a Date Change

My company is new to Monday.com so I apologize if I missed something.

We ship product to our study site based upon the date they give us as the study procedure date. This date can be changed several times by the study site.

There doesn’t appear to be an automation that would do something like:

When DATE changes (or modified) NOTIFY SOMEONE.

If there is a way to do this, I surely missed it.

BTW, I did try to create this using the custom automation builder, using the format:
When COLUMN changes NOTIFY SOMEONE
I then chose the Date column for the COLUMN placehoder in the formula. Unfortunately this triggered a notification when ANY colum was changed. If I change COLUMN to DATE in the custom builder - there is no option to trigger off of a change in date.

Any suggestions

Hi @jsdelapasse - thanks for joining the monday.com community :slight_smile:

We do offer an automation to send a notification based on a column change under the Notifications section of the automation center:

This sounds very similar to what you built out using the custom automations builder! This automation allows you to define a column as the Date column on your board. Then whenever any item’s date is changed on your board, whoever you have selected in the someone field will receive a notification in their bell icon. They can also receive these notifications via email depending on their notification preferences.

Does this help to answer your question?

I have absolutely no idea how I missed that!

BTW – I did create that same automation using the CUSTOM RECIPE. It did send the notification, however, it sent the notification on EVERY column change, not just the column I specified.

Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience….
