I am working on using an Airtable automation to assign topics to writers.

Step 1: Trigger

Step 2: Find records that meet the right criteria.

Step 3: Send an email with values from the found records as a grid.

Step 4: Update the records from step 2. I have a single select field “Emailed” that can be true or false. I’d like to update these values to True.

Step 4 is where I am having a problem. I do not see the possibility for selecting Record ID’s for the records found in step 2. Is there a workaround to this?

Thanks in advance.

After reading through this thread what I’m realising is I’m out of my depth.

I was just using Zapier (iPaas) to create the following workflow:

  • Someone joins the slack channel
  • Updates Select Field in Airtable “Joined Slack?” = True

Same thing with Mailchimp:

  • Picklist updates in Mailchimp
  • Mailchimp updates airtable

I spent hours trying to get it to work but had the issue with updating multiple records. Anyone have any advice for this specific usecase?

This worked perfectly, thanks.
