Toric is ideal for reusability; build Dataflows once and let them run. With the Run Dataflow action, you can save time opening and updating sources. Let's learn how to use the Run Dataflow action in Automations.
Automations are Actions that are executed based on a Trigger event. For example, evaluate a Dataflow when a source is updated in a project.

For a Failed Automation run, click on the View Detailed Log option to see the error code associated with the failure. If your Dataflow keeps failing, we recommend creating a support ticket and pasting the chat's error code. Knowing the specific error code will help our engineers find a solution faster.
