Hi there!

I have made a regular airtable automation to send an e-mail when certain conditions are met. I was wondering, is there a way to have a value (not a list of values) of a certain cell in a certain row as an e-mail subject?

To put it more directly, when status of an order (field order status) is "finished", an e-mail is sent where the name of the client (field client) from the same record is a part of the e-mail subject.

Any help is very much appreciated!

Yes, that’s what automations are designed to do. Just click on the blue plus sign and choose the field from the trigger step.

if you need more power & customizability from your email automations, that’s where you would turn to an external automation tool like Make.

Yes, you can do this by using the Find block in the automation module, so that it triggers the automation only a single record:

No, that is unnecessary in what he is trying to do.
