Add Record action allows you to add a record to any app (including the current app) if the Condition(s) of your rule is/are satisfied.
You need to define column mappings using the “Add Column” button. These column mappings are used during the rule execution to populate the data for the new/existing record.
You can also use “Add Record” action to update an existing record in some another app if that other app has a “Primary Key” defined and that primary key column is also defined in the column mappings.
The above rule adds a new record to “Purchase Order” app in “Inventory & Order Management” site.
It populates three columns when adding the new record – left hand side columns are the target app’s columns (“Purchase Order” app) and the right hand side (a) columns are the source app’s columns (“Products” app) or (b) a custom formula or (c) actual/definite values :
Productis set to
Record ID from source app
Statusis set to actual/definite value
Manufactureris set to
Manufacturer from source app
Quantityis set to actual/definite value
Add Column Mapping :
To add a new column mapping, click on “Add Column” button and select (a) “Column Value” for copying column value from the source app’s (“Products” app) or (b) “Formula” for a custom formula or (c) “Actual Value” for actual/definite values.
