Checking an Automation's Run History

The Automation Run History is a convenient way to get a real-time snapshot of a specific automation's previous runs. The amount of time the run history will go back is based on your plan type, which you can find more details on here.

Whenever you're a specific Automation, you can click the "History" button to get a detailed look of the previous executions. The view will give you an overview of each run of the Automation, including their start time, status, duration and amount of actions that occurred during that particular execution. This is a great way for you to view Automation progress and track any potential issues that happen along the way.
