Add multiple record links using automation

Hi everyone.

I’m using some rollup fields in a way that is only really useful if I can automate the linking of new relevant records to that rollup field’s record. Right now, the automation simply overwrites the old record link, rather than adding an additional one. The link field is set to allow multiple linked records, and I can add multiple links manually.

Is there a way to configure this in the update record action? I am stumped.

When you update the field, put the field, then a comma, and then the new value.

Hi @ScottWorld, could you explain this in a little more detail? I need help with this too. I was also trying to use the Find records-> add list of records to the linked field, but again, it simply overwrites all of the other records and replaces it with one new one. 

Thank you!
