Automation: update record

If I create an automation with the following configuration:
Trigger: a record is created
Conditional action: if record meets X, update field A with values (‘in-app’, ‘bespoke’)


How do I make sure it doesn’t overwrite any values that already exist in that field? I just want to add the two additional values, if they don’t already exist in the field.
I’ve tried the following, where you add the existing values of Content Theme into the updated values but it does something weird to the field configuration and adds a blank field value option if the field is blank before this automation.


Is this possible in the automations?
