hello - i created a button field that triggers an email via sendgrid integration. while this functionality is possible as a creator/internal user, it is not possible (i.e., button not clickable) when a shared view is generated and viewed as a non-internal user.

is there a way to allow non-internal users who view the shared view to click the button to generate the email?

No, the only type of button field that works in shared views is a button that opens a url. You could have a button field that opens a form and when the user fills out the form the newly created record triggers your automation.

Your scenario might look something like this:
