Problem Description: In the Airtable automation configuration, the "Find records" step successfully found matching employer records, but in the "Update record" step, the error "Received invalid inputs" is still displayed. We have confirmed that the "Record ID" and "Fields" are using the correct output values from the "Find records" step, but the issue persists.

Looks like you're passing multiple record IDs into the 'Record ID' field:

It can only handle one record ID at a time I'm afraid

To resolve this, try using a repeating group: https://support.airtable.com/docs/repeating-groups-of-automation-actions

Unfortunately we cannot use both repeating groups and conditional logic in one automation, so you'll need to restructure your automation.  Perhaps you can use a "When record meets conditions" trigger instead?
