Hi, everyone! My name is Paul Harris. I am a retired airline pilot and print shop owner. I currently work in fulfilling orders for navigation databases to support aircraft movements outside of scheduled airline operations. I have developed my own process using Notion, Tally Forms, and Gmail to get the job done. Now I am looking for possible ways to automate some of my process steps to save time as our volume of business is increasing.
I see tremendous power and potential in Bardeen to that end. However, at this introductory stage it all looks like Greek to me! Perhaps I could get some help with my first effort, then I may be able to figure out the rest on my own.
I collect sale order information on a Tally Form that is Integrated to my Notion Database. When the information comes in it creates an Unnamed Page in my Database. On creation of this page I would like to create a Name for the Page from some [DateTime] function followed by the Text in two of the Text fields on the submitted Form. Example:
Thank you for sharing your background. Awesome use case and it sounds like you’ve got your process down well - just looking to improve efficiency even further, always fun!
This use case is possible with Bardeen, but at the moment there is a bug with the “When a Notion page is created” causing it not to trigger unfortunately.
The bug has been reported here to follow updates: When Notion Page is Created Never Works
The actions needed to accomplish your use case are:
I will be happy to buy Jess a coffee or more when I have a chance to test the module she put together for me. I’m not sure I want to move forward with an app that has had a failed trigger reported to engineering over a month ago with no progress in site…
