If I find a bunch of records in step x and try to update them in step y I’m getting the following error: ‘received invalid inputs’.
According to the docs (Find records automation action – Airtable Support) it should work: “One recommendation is to use the update record action in order to update one set of records using data from the records found using the “find records” action outlined in this article.”
Just to be clear, it works fine with 1 record, just not with a list.
Yeah, that article is wrong… or at best extremely misleading. Airtable should fix that article.
Right, which is exactly what I outlined in my other message that I linked to above.
Unfortunately, the only thing we can effectively do with the “Find Records” action is copy-and-paste the group of record ID’s into a linked record field. Ostensibly to update the parent record.
Here’s the official line: “I did get confirmation from the engineering team that it is not possible to update multiple records with this action. It will fail if the “Find Records” action is finding more than one record.”
I suggested improving the article.
