I'm trying to create an automation that when I update a record then it also updates another record in a different table. I've watched several videos on Youtube on how to do this and it seems pretty straightforward enough.

I created the trigger, tested it and it works fine. But the Action is where I keep running into the "Received invalid inputs" error. This is mainly due to the Record ID that's causing the issue it seems. It seems I'm not alone on this issue. I searched on here for answers but it's still doesn't help. What am I missing?

Would be great if this Record ID process was simplified since Airtable doesn't show the actual Record ID itself on the tables and records.

If the same record is always updated you could create a record ID field to grab that record ID and put it in your automation: https://support.airtable.com/docs/finding-airtable-ids#creating-a-record-id-field

If not, you can add a "Find Record" step to determine which record it is you need to update dynamically: https://support.airtable.com/docs/linking-existing-records-using-automations
