I have an automation attached to a button, and I want to insert the user who is logged in to a field.

I can’t seem to figure this out. Is there a current_user() formula?

That would be nice, but that is not a part of Airtable. I would send a feature request email about this to support@airtable.com.

However, Airtable does have “Last Modified By”fields, and it also shows user activity in the activity history viewer window. You can also specify the “Last Modified By” field to only watch certain fields.
