Ability to Add Data Write Action to Existing Process
1. It would be really a game changer if we are able to add Data Write Actions to the existing processes, It would not only scale up the usage of the Data Write Action but also would save a lot of time and effort and would save us from creating multiple saved views and actions.
2. Currently, Data Write actions can only update one cell at a time, which limits its usage, but if we get an ability to use it for multiple cells, based on a Boolean it would really help specially in cases like approval workflows and similar setups.
Completely agree with this - I'd also add that it would be great if we could combine any of the UX actions with each other and with processes. For example using a Form action to create a record and using multiple Data Write actions to capture the User and the Time and Date.
I'm sure there are many other uses cases that we could simplify through the use of combined UX and System actions to great effect.1
Being able to combine forms with other import actions will also save so much development effort or save users from clicking two buttons - one for the form and one for the subsequent actions.0
Yes combining actions like data write, forms and notifications into processes would greatly help us bring more people onboard.
Process imports + data write + notifications would allow for instance to import data, set a flag to done and send notifications to the list of corresponding users.1
