Hi, I need help on the automation that I'm currently building. The section where it says "From name" on the Airtable Automations is not working. The email being sent is still the actual email address used, I want it to be the exact name of a person and I have linked the value on the section correctly, but still I'm having issues.

Hope you guys can help me figure out. Thanks in advance!

The "From Name" is actually being sent. You will see it if you analyze the original raw source of your incoming message. But your local address book is overriding it with whatever name you've typed into your address book for that email address.

The only real way to get this to work would be to send an email from Airtable instead of Gmail, but Airtable does add its own advertising & branding to the email messages.
