An automation Action can happen in Rindle or in an external application (webhook action). Actions are performed when a task, board, list, or user triggers the automation.

Specify the Action(s) to perform

When you add new automations, the option to select an Action will appear. The drop-down contains specific actions based on the specified automation type (Tasks, Boards, Lists, Users). Select an action.

Rules can consist of multiple actions. If there are multiple actions and the rule triggers, all actions will be performed as they are separated by AND.

You will see each action separated by AND. Think of it as "if the rule triggers, take this action AND that action. There is no limit to the number of actions you can specify for a Rule.

Add an additional action by clicking +

Action Conditions

Apply additional criteria to an action to narrow down which tasks, boards, lists, or users the action(s) will perform on.

To apply a condition, click ADD CONDITIONS.

Actions can have multiple conditions grouped by Sets. Within a set, conditions are separated by AND. This means that a task, board, list, or user, must meet all conditions within a Set to apply.

Think of it as "if this AND that condition exists in a task, perform the actions." There is no limit to the number of conditions you can specify in the condition set.

Add an additional condition to the set by clicking ADD A CONDITION.

Condition Sets are separated by OR. Although there may be multiple conditions in a Set, a task, board, list, or user is required to meet only one of the specified Sets in order to apply.

Think of it as "if this OR that condition exists in a task, perform the action." There is no limit to the number of Condition Sets you can specify for a Rule.

Add an additional condition set to the set by clicking ADD ANOTHER SET.

When you apply a condition, the action no longer applies to tasks, boards, lists, and users that triggered the automation. They must perform the event AND fulfill the additional criteria as specified in action conditions.
