How do I make a Zap records when a task is done and emails me a reminder if it isn’t done yet?

Suppose there is a task I need to carry out each week (say, taking out the trash or paying a bill). Rather than be _reminded_ to do the task (e.g. by having a Zap with a Schedule trigger), I would like to tell Zapier that I’ve done the task and have it record this fact somewhere.

Now, here’s the important part: if I haven’t done the task in any given week before noon on Saturday of each week, I want Zapier to email me to do the task.

Is there a way to do something like this? It’s a bit like a dead man’s switch: you need to check in, or the trigger goes off.

Hi @xzrj9q 

Good question.

You can use an Airtable Base.

Airtable has Views.

Views have Filters (e.g. Status = Done)

Views can be used to trigger Zaps.
