🔭 Check for Updates

This flow will scan all your flows and alert you if there are any updates. It uses your author ID to determine whether to check each flow for new ratings and downloads, or for a new version.

For any flows you have uploaded, it will post a notification if there are any new ratings or downloads. For any you have downloaded, it will post a notification if there is a new version. Tap the notification to go to the flow's community page.

Any HTTP errors received when querying a flow's community page are logged. This can make for a large log file, so if you want to disable this just cut blocks 168 and 167 out of the loop. Connect block 165 'No' dot to block 140 'In' dot.

Premium version of this flow with user-configurable options: https://llamalab.com/automate/community/flows/45003

This flow does not loop, although there's no reason you can't add that functionality if you want it. I prefer a flow scheduler: https://llamalab.com/automate/community/flows/30720.

Also, thank you to Drew Chapin whose post in the forum showed me how to perform the prestidigitation that saved me a few blocks:

MyNameisBob: It's the number in parenthesis next to your name in your comment.

Credit to cefadrom MC (👤 User statistics [V3]) for the progress bar. Great idea!

Version 2: Cleaned up code and saved a block.

Version 3: Rewrote most of the flow. It's all the same functionality, but no longer requires premium.

Version 4: Increased efficiency and saved three more blocks.

Version 5: Bug fix: I had my author ID hard-coded for debugging. Thank you Arena Closer for pointing it out.

Version 6: Bug fix: Toast message was misreporting number of updates.

Version 7: The flow now checks the HTTP response code for each flow queried. If the code is other than 200 (success), the error is logged and that flow is skipped. HTTP errors will no longer break the flow.
