What is the proposed idea/solution?

With the recent updates to the Airtable API being more featureful with Record Comments - it makes sense to also give some love to no-code Automation Actions, allowing an Automation to post to the Record Comments, either as an Automation or upon behalf of a specified user.

How does is solve the user problems?

Currently, for example, an Automation can use conditional logic to email an Airtable operator of an issue with a record. It would be useful if we had other options too, such as the Automation posting to the records comment detailing the problem with that record.

Who is the target audience?

Any firm using Record Comments will find a benefit from an Automation no-code Action that can also write to a records comments.

This would be very helpful. We are using Automations and Comments and would like to be able to use the Comments tool like an auto log (when a record has been moved/updated etc and why)
