Help!

I can't get the automation below to change the status of our EE to moved out. I keep getting receive invalid inputs. 

Basically I want it to be when the lease end date is today or past and EE status is not canceled then it will change the EE status to moved out.

Hey there 👋


The `invalid inputs` error is due to Airtable trying to find a record ID to know which record to update, but instead you're passing the `EE Status` value into the Record ID field — instead, you'll want to insert the `Airtable Record ID` option from the blue plus "+" menu:

That should fix it but let me know if not 👍
