Hi all,

I have automation setup to put notes in long text field when certain conditions met (and was proud of myself :winking_face: )…BUT when it triggers it removes and REPLACES any text that may already be there…just wanting to add additional text in that field…can that be done?

yep. You append any field type’s value by inserting the value from the trigger record (or any other previous step), adding a space (or comma if its an “array” field), then typing in the value to be appended at the end.

Heck simple enough, why didn’t I think of that… thank you for the help!
