I would like to insert a link in my automated email to an interface page that I've just created and published. But it doesn't show up in the "Use data form..." popup - see screenshot?

Hi @Raik_Brauns1,

The interface page will not show up among the variable options in the automation - you would need to hardcode the interface page link in the automation directly - if the interface is of Record Review type you can also populate the interface page link dynamically. This allows you to make sure that depending on the record that triggered the automation, you are referencing the interface page linked to it. You would do this by adding the interface link and replacing the record ID at the end of the link with the record ID of the record you are referencing.

For instance, if your interface page link looks like this with a generic record
- https://airtable.com/appT8EQ25NDjzRHvy/pag9RCOHFiTnN18gI?sAUED=rec0CzQVkvfe2kjSN

you would add this to the automation text:
https://airtable.com/appT8EQ25NDjzRHvy/pag9RCOHFiTnN18gI?sAUED={Airtable Record ID} -> where Airtable Record ID is a variable selected via the "Use data form..." popup

I hope this helps!
