Does the use of 'now' result in updates against a plan

Hi there,
I am working on an app for our bar and restaurant to replace a few paid services we are using. One such feature is displaying when restaurant reservations are late. I do this by comparing the booked datetime with the current datetime. But have concern that as this updates every few seconds that these would count as “updates” for billing purposes. If so I will drop that feature (unfortunately). I really hope no though… as for FOH restaurant service - it is useful to also know how long guests have been seated, served etc.

As with most computed columns, they are computed client side, so there is no actual updates to the database. Simply using ‘Now’ will not count against your updates.


Great. Thanks Jeff.
