Hi Guys,

Hoping this is an easy one (however I cannot seem to find a similar problem or answer anywhere on the forum)!

I am using Integromat to automate the sending of emails using Gmail, these emails have attachments which are uploaded to Airtable. Everything seems to be working well - the email is triggered in integromat, however all the attachments received are 1kb and cannot be opened.

I have tried it with different attachment fields in my Airtable and with different records, still seems to be the same.

After the scenario is run in integromat, I can see the below:

The attachment settings in Integromat look like this -

Hopefully I am missing something easy.

I will answer my own question in case someone else looks for this in the future!

You need to use a HTTP Get File module to download the data from Airtable before attaching it to the email.

The Get File module is run after the airtable module and before the gmail action.

Thanks @Theo_Field is this the only way to attach files from Airtable to Gmail?

It seems a bit cumbersome as it requires me to use an iterator for multiple attachments but that prevents me from accessing other information earlier in the scenario.
