Does anyone know how to do this:
- Trigger: new record appearing in Airtable view (records with status: Done)
- Action: populate one field in that same record with date/time.
After setting up the trigger, Action step wants a custom value that doesn’t work, suggests adding a ‘look up record’ step which I cannot get to actually look up a record in any case.
What’s the secret to getting Airtable to Airtable Zaps working? Anyone know??
(I use Zapier all the time at work including for Airtable. Now I’ve spent way too long trying to do something through Zapier that should be obvious: When an Airtable record’s status changes to DONE, use a view to trigger a Zap to populate a Date/Time field in that same record.)
I have reviewed instructions for Gmail to update airtable record which works fine. I also have zaps that trigger from Airtable view updating to MailChimp that works fine. It’s this specific scenario that has me stumped.
Would really appreciate guidance. I’m prototyping a gamified productivity tracker and it all falls apart if I don’t capture/parse by date when things are completed - no way to earn points and rewards or evaluate results. I might as well go back to Trello and pay for a heap of power ups and zap to a spreadsheet. ugh.
THANKS IN ADVANCE, COMMUNITY.
