Is it possible where we send a slack automation with button that when you press that button, it updates a specific column on slack?

Yeah, sort of.  You'd send a message over Slack with a specially formatted webhook trigger link that you could create via Zapier or some other third party automation tool

The webhook trigger link would contain the record ID of the record to update, and whatever other data you need to use for the update action

Once the user clicked the link and accessed that URL, the webhook would trigger the Zap (or equivalent), and you'd have actions in Zapier to update the record appropriately

Your user's just going to see a blank page with the word "Success" on it though, which might be confusing, but hopefully your usage is internal and thus this isn't an issue?

Thank you. I think this could work. I need to play around a little bit.
