Hello

Trying to do something very basic.

I have created an automation where all the steps confirmed as working except the trigger which is a button trigger. My understanding is to connect a button to the trigger I have to select it in the interface.

So I go to the interface, add button but under Choose Automation no automations are showing. Quick Loom here.

Any help much appreciated!

Very bizarre. I setup my base the same way as you did, and on my interface, I *am* successfully seeing the list of automations that are set to the "button trigger". So I'm not really sure what's going on! What happens if you delete and re-create your interface page from scratch all over again? Same problem? If so, you might need to reach out to support@airtable.com about this issue.

Tried that and not changed!

@unserrer so close - right below where you're clicking is the automation select 🙂

That's the problem - it won't let me press that!

@unserrer When you setup your interface, were you able to select the table and records? This forms the basis of the source for the interface. 

From the interface setup steps:

@unserrer From your Interface page click the '+' button to create a new interface OR click 'add page' to configure a new page (if you don't see that option, click on the white space inside your interface).

@unserrer one more question - what style of layout are you using for your interface? (List, Record View etc..)

So here's my Loom. I'm wondering if because I'm using blank to start with the button isn't given a source? I'd like to use a list but can't put a button on a list interface from what I can see.
