I am wondering whether it is possible to add an image to the body of the emails that are sent using automation? I want to add the logo of the company to the signature.

I do this with scripting. I have scripts that generate records in an email table with the body fully formed. This lets me have many different email templates that I use with button fields, but takes up only one of the twenty-five automations.

Thanks @kuovonne I am on the free version, so no scripting. I might get back to this when I have more complicated tasks. Thanks again.

Just wanted to chime in to say that I came here looking for this answer (HTML tag) and it worked perfectly for me - both using Airtable’s native email and using the Gmail integration. Yay!

A few notes:

  • Like @JonathanBowen I initially used a URL with underscores in it and it failed - but URLs with no underscores worked great.
  • In the Airtable email, the image was distorted on mobile - but using Gmail, the image dynamically adjusted. I’ll be using Gmail!

As I posted above, I was able to successfully implement an HTML image embed code in an Airtable Automation Gmail email by hard-entering the code into the Message. More recently, I took it one step further and used a formula (below) to generate unique a HTML image embed code for each of about 50 recipients, then inserted it as a dynamic field into the Message. At first I thought it didn’t work, but after re-testing the trigger, it did! Hope this helps someone else trying to do something similar in the future.

"<img src=" & {Image Link} & " width=800 alt=Alt Text" & ">"

I just tried and it worked, you can have underscores in the url if you escape them.

For instance, if your image is,

<img width="200" height="26" src="\_image.png">

will work.

I just keep getting this

Hi @Anna , thank you so much for helping us solve this. I am having an issue though. The image shows up, but the link doesn't work.

This is my version of your suggestion, what am I getting wrong? 

<img src=" & {} &" width=150 alt=Alt Text" & ">

I also pulled this HTML code off another website and tried it, but it also only displays the image without being a link:

<a href="" target="_blank">

<img src=""> </a>

Thank you so much!
