Custom Actions?

I was a heavy Airtable user and I’m just exploring Baserow, but one thing I would love to be able to do is populate some reviewer tables.

I have a job application form. When people apply, they’re added to a table of applicants. As soon as we receive an application, I would like to create new rows in the “review” table so that all three reviewers have a row they can use to weigh in on the applicant.

I’m not even sure where to start looking for something like that in Baserow: how do I automate actions?

Hey @amandabee,

So in essence you need a feature that allows you to “create a row in table x if a new row has been created in table y” is that accurate?

If that’s the case, you can’t do that via the interface just yet, but you can use our webhooks to listen to a row create event, and then add the new rows to your other table.

This is a technical solution, so it will either require you to write the code necessary or use Baserow in combination with another no code automation tool that can handle webhooks.

Baserow doesn’t (yet) offer workflow automation. I recommend using with, or for it. We have integration with all of these tools and you should be able to what you described. If you’re looking for a self-hosted solution, then I recommend n8n.
