Automation: Append Multiple Select Fields

Hi!

I’ve using airtable at my job for over two year now, and it is a great database tool! Moreover, it’s great to watch it grow and add new features.

I suggest adding an automation action that allows updating a multiple select field on a record by appending it. Today, the automation update action will overwrite the field, not add to it.

Hi,

like in scripting, to append multiselect field in automations, you should put:
[array of old values], new_value
(note that miltiselect field value is always array, even if it contains single element or empty)

it adds new value, or does nothing if it already exists
