Hi Community,

I am pulling information from multiple records in a sync'd base into one record in a new base. By doing this I getting multiple images associated with this record, which I love. However some images are associated with multiple records in in the sync'd base and therefore multiples of the same image is added to the attachment. 

Is there a way to remove the duplicate attachments without having to do it manually? Making sure all attachments are unique.

Hello! We have built an automation script for this!:

With this simple script you only need to key in the names of the table, lookup field and attachments field and it will remove the extra attachments with the same name!

You can even try it before you buy it!
