When to include an inert electrode such as Pt(s)

When writing a cell diagram when is it necessary to include an inert electrode such as Pt(s)?
Thank you!

You only include it when there is no solid (metal) involved.

You include an inert electrode when you are presented with all aqueous substances and need a solid metal to transfer electrons.
