I am currently trying to create an automation email sequence - every time a record changes to a particular single select option, an email is automatically sent.

Most fields I want to use work, however I cannot get attachment to work or look up fields that I have in there. I’ve tried changing the information, refreshing, and changing the file type for the attachment. However, it just shows up blank in the tests.

For Automations-related questions, we ask customers for additional info:

  • PREFERRED: A 1-2min screen recording of the Automation workflow
  • Screenshots
    • A screenshot of the table and view used for the Automation. Please include all fields if possible.
    • A detailed screenshot of the Automation trigger.
    • A detailed screenshot of the Automation action.
    • A detailed screenshot of the Run history and a failed run.

With the additional context, it will help us understand your current base set-up and automation issue more clearly so we can be sure we’re giving you the best guidance possible.

Hope this helps~~
