I am working on an offboarding workflow to use when an employee is termed and leaves the company. I made a form that is the start of the process. Once a record is created from a submitted form the automation will send out an email to the terminated user and five staff members that all have tasks to complete. Looking for a way that the staff members can reply to the email they receive, and the reply update the airtable base. See what I have currently in the pic below.


Ideally, I would like to have a single select field that the user could pick an answer from and then email it back to to airtable to update the base. As a workaround, I am buiding single select fields in the table and making an interface that I can link to in the email. The interface will contain only the relevant questions for that user.

Simplest method might involve creating a form per user and allowing them to click into it and submit it?

For your desired workflow of allowing them to reply to an email, you'd probably need a third party tool like Zapier for it.  In your automation to send the email, set up a custom email address that they'd reply to (e.g.,, and then create Zaps that will trigger when an email gets sent to those addresses that does different actions as needed

Form method feels a lot simpler and cleaner though
