@Bill.French @ScottWorld I have installed the maps extension and successfully set up a field with the static map API to generate a static map based on an address and populate an image of that map as an attachment in a field for each record.

How do I get this to run automatically when a new record is created or a new record enters a specific view?

I have tried using the script from the extension in a script automation triggered by an event (new record, record enters a view etc.) and it doesn’t like the script from the extension

Thank you for coming back and posting that the issue was solved and directing people to the resource that ultimately worked for you.

I’m sorry that Scott’s solution did not work for you. Different people sometimes need different approaches that work for them.

Was glancing through this post's old messages and figured I just leave an update about the Automation Script that Airtable provides that now accomplishes this. Add image from Google Maps.png

Add image from Google Maps

This script populates an attachment field with an image from Google Maps using a field with an address. In order to use this script, you'll need a Google Maps API key with the Maps Static API enabled.
