I have two tables, Projects and Employees. Employees are assigned to a Project as a linked record. I'm trying to create an automation that on record updates and creation of the employee field on the Project, a note field is updated with something like "Employee A assigned to Project B on X/X/XX" to keep a history of the assignments. 

How do I find the note field of the Employee to update when the change happened on the Projects table? The Find Records action won't let me select the Employee Name or RecordID.

In my image, it would be difficult to complete the history function with just the notes field.
How about creating a history table that records projects and employees?
With that, just let Rollup complete the list.
