var Airtable = context.AIRTABLE_API_KEY;
var base_id = “appGRnjvExBkkhQa2”;
var base = Airtable.base(base_id);
var table_name = context.VOLUNTEERS_FOR_DELIVERY_TABLE;

var table = base.table(table_name);

// lookup the RFID number in our table and then update that record
// with additional data{
“filterByFormula”: “{10DN}=event.number”
}).firstPage((err, results) => {
if (err) {
// handle err;
throw err;

// results will be a list, but if the column we are searching for should unique, 
// then we should only have one element in the array

// if the uniqueness assumption here is not true, then you’ll want to turn this into a loop
var record = results[0];

// grab the record id
// and then push an update to this record
var record_id =;
table.update(record_id, {
  "Confirmed": event.answer
}).then((result) => {
  // handle final result
}).catch((err) => {
  // handle error
