do you have any idea or solution
Thanks

Hi @Alexandre_Husset,

As far as I know, Airtable’s automated emails don’t support images embedded within the text of the message (such as an embedded image in signature text).

However, you can add an image attachment to an email by using the “attachments” option and choosing an attachments field from your database. That isn’t the same thing as embedding an image as part of your signature, so it might not work for your needs.

But if you really need to embed the image within the body of your message, you could always turn to a professional automation platform like Integromat, which lets you send HTML-based emails (with embedded images) through a variety of different email platforms, such as SendGrid.

You might also be able to script this with a custom JavaScript using Airtable’s Automations, but I don’t know enough about Airtable’s JavaScript email capabilities to know if this is possible.

Hi ScottWorld. I am unable to add the image as an attachment…I can enter the url, or length, but nothing ever populates…can you help at all please?

You can just insert the attachment field itself into the attachments section of the Send Email automation.

Also, to answer earlier questions in this thread, it looks like inline attachments are supported with markdown:

You can now include an image in an email automation using an HTML image tag.

I’ll let Airtable know to update their support article.

How do you do this? Is there a support article anywhere about this? Thank you so much!
