Ah, I see what you’re referring to. The language displayed in the trigger was improved to use more accurate terminology since those community examples were posted.
Previously, all of the equality type of triggers used the language as ‘changes to’ which was modified to ‘updates and is’ to make it more accurate.
That made room to introduce a proper distinction between values updating and values actually changing with the On Transition Only option which is available for Things and Variables.
That sounds like a good approach and it’s similar to what the On Transition Only operator does internally… just that the On Transition Only option also covers cases for numeric transitions and comparisons like greater than (>) or less than (<) that are a bit more complex but really useful for Things and Variables.
