Hello,I have been using Airtable for a long time - but am new to the community. Nice to be here! 🙂

I would like to copy a value in a cell to another record when a condition is met.

(The image as an example)

If a product (e.g. product 1 in group A) gets a value in attribute B (checkbox), the value in attribute A should be copied from product 1 to all other products in the group.

Is this possible through automation?

Best regards
Philipp

Hi,

you can recursively update value and checkbox as conditional action when "Find records" (same group, field A is empty) array length > 0. To get a single ID from array, use this approach, for example.

Note it will cost one automation run for each updated value. If you need to do it in a single run, you should apply scripting step with filtering.
