Hi there! I'm new to Airtable, and want to know if I can automatically add a task to a base if I email someone with that task?

Thanks for your help!

Hi, the easiest way to do this would be to leverage Zapier. Here's a historical post you can reference:

In the example above, you create a unique email with Zapier which you would cc when you send an email. Then Zapier will parse that email and create a new record in your Airtable base. Does that help?
