How do I work with lists of records in automations?

I’m trying the following in my automation;

  1. Trigger is when record in Offer table changes status.
  2. First Action is Find Records from a Customer Table
  3. Second Action is to Create Records in Marketing Table for each of the customers from #2 above.

However, I don’t know how to do that. Is it possible to iterate a list in automations?

Unfortunately, there is no direct way to iterate through a list of records in automations.

In my opinion, it seems like this is a big oversight by the Airtable engineers to leave this out of automations. I would highly recommend that you email support@airtable.com to ask them to please implement this feature into Airtable.

Since you can’t do this directly, you can only do this in a roundabout way. This video explains how to do it in a roundabout way:

(You can also do this directly by using Integromat, which is an external automation platform that has none of the limitations of Airtable’s automations.)

Thanks for the response! I’ll check Integromat.
Yes, definite oversight… Perform actions on list should be a feature.
