Dear all

I'm new here to the community - so thank you for all future help & interaction!

I have trouble finding a setting to the buttons in interfaces. In the airtable manual (https://support.airtable.com/docs/interface-element-button) there ist the following description: 

Appearance

Before moving on to further interface configuration or publishing your interface, you may want to rename/label the button or change its color to provide more context to collaborators who are interacting within the interface you are building. You can also have the button update colors and/or label after the button has been clicked

I saw this function in the past, but can't find it consistently. Maybe I'm just don't see it or was it removed? I also can't find any thread or comment about this.

Since it is a very valuable feature, I'm greatful for every hint!

Kind regards, Chris

Very confusingly and annoyingly, Airtable has 2 different types of buttons: Button FIELDS and INTERFACE buttons. Only INTERFACE buttons offer this feature, not button FIELDS.

Thank you for the answer!

I tested it and found that the feature is only available for the 'Update Record' action. I have a lot of automations that are triggered by buttons and it's not available for "Run Automation". That's a shame, I hope it's coming soon.
