Save Collection - Automated Workflow Event

The Save Collection event allows you to save data in a collection through an automated workflow.

Let's see how to create an event step by step to save data in a collection.

Step 1: Create the Save Collection Event Action

To create an event to save data in a collection, go to the Events panel and click the Add Event button. You will be redirected to the events page.

Just add the name of the event and click the Create button.

Then, click on the add icon and go to Collection in the dropdown event action list and select Save Data by clicking on it once.

The Save Data dialogue box will open. Here, select the collection in which you want to save. You can also choose to allow only logged-in users to submit data or keep it open so anyone can fill the form without logging in. Once done, click the Save button.

Then, bind the Save Data event to the collection form.
