Using Automations to send email when record is updated

I’ve created my first automation using the new Automations field in Airtable. I want to send an email when a record in a table is updated. The automation works – kind of. If I update the field, I do get an email. Well, that’s the problem. I don’t get “an” email. I get multiple emails. The field in question is a long-text note field. Editing the field to add a couple of sentences triggered seven or eight emails.

Am I doing something wrong? Or is this feature not quite ready for prime time? I assume it’s me, but I don’t see what I’m doing wrong.
