I have an issue with automatically creating records. I want to create a record in a separate table for each linked record in a given table. The automation fails when I add two or more linked records shortly after each other. Please check out this Loom video where I quickly explain the problem:

Is there any way to make Airtable Automations go through linked records in a sequential manner or do I have to use a script?

Unfortunately, Airtable doesn’t support automation for records in bulk. It can only do 1 at a time. It can find them, but it doesn’t pass it to the next step in the automation.

On2Air Actions allows you to update multiple records at a time.
