We're excited to announce Automations.io 1.2 with 8 new integrations and many quality of life platform improvements.

You can find the previous Automations.io 1.1 release post here.

8 New Integrations

We also released new actions for existing Companies House, Invoiced, Lemlist and T2A integrations.

Preview Data Tags

When using data tags inside automation actions, such as $trigger.email, you can now easily preview the end result.

Human Task Updates

We've made improvements to make it easier to build and preview tasks.

Filter Automation Runs

You can now filter automation runs by their status.

Improved Audit History

The audit view of each automation run has been simplified and made easier to use.

Date Time Helper

There is a new {{now}} helper that allows you to work with date and time.

For example, using {{now "format YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss"}} inside action will return the current time when the action is performed in the specified format, e.g. 2021-11-08 15:00:00.

You can also perform manipulation, such as adding or removing days and hours.

For example, let's say you are using Invoiced integration and you want to make every new invoice automatically due next month on the 15th day. You can now do this with {{now "endOf month; add 15 days"}}.

This has been recorded on 8th of November 2021, therefore, end of month is 30th of November, and adding 15 days on top will result in 15th of December.

Other Improvements

  • You will now have visibility over delayed automation runs. Automation runs are delayed when you have reached your monthly actions limit, or you have reached a limit of the number of automations you can start per minute.
  • Trigger and action testing have been improved, and you will now see a warning if we believe something in the test result needs your attention.
  • When building automation, we now dim the background to hide unnecessary distractions and highlight elements you can use at that moment.
  • There's now a "Start Task" shortcut at the top of the task's page.
  • An issue has been fixed where the action options window in the automation template could block the data tags menu.
