Hi, I consider to use n8n.cloud service.
I’m really fan of n8n service. But I’m not a developer.
So, When I found the fact that n8n which is free to use needs hosting server, I was frustrated…
because I don’t have any knowledge of server.
However I heard that n8n.io provide the n8n.cloud service. I saw the silver lining in the dark cloud.
Anyway I have some questions about n8n cloud service before I choose to use n8n.cloud.
If you help me decide, I will appreciate.
Just so you know,
What I want to make by using n8n.cloud is a messaging work flow like below.
The user of my service answer my survey with google form or type form,
then answer data will save as google sheets row.
And then new row created. It trigger to send a message.(I maybe use polling)
(It is simple. And I almost made it. But server is my problem…)
My questions are like below.
n8n.cloud is no need to host a server? I mean I want to make my workflow operate 24hour regardless my PC status is on or off.
I will use polling feature. When I use interval node, for example, set every minutes, If there is new data on google sheets it will trigger to send message, If there isn’t new data, it won’t trigger to send message.
In this case, Does n8n count the number of every excution when checking existence of new data in every minutes? Or just it counts just the number of excution when new data is found and sending a message.
(I refer to this article.https://medium.com/n8n-io/creating-triggers-for-n8n-workflows-using-polling-32990c42f2d0)
Thank you for reading this.
