I set an automation to deliver a daily report to my team Slack, triggered at a scheduled time. This report would find all active Projects (either using a preset View or a Condition) and then insert those found records into the Slack message as a grid.
This is the AirTable guide I used (mirrored from email to Slack).
Here are the steps:
- Set trigger at scheduled time.
- Use “Find records” action to pull active projects from the Projects table. This was tested using both a preset View and set Conditions.
- Use the “Send message” Slack action. Select the “insert records as grid” option. Check the applicable boxes for fields to include.
- Test action.
- Turn automation on and test using trigger.
Each time, the records were not displayed in a grid format but in a string of code.
Has anyone else run into this issue or requested support from the AirTable team?
