Directly after, I use the Airtable node again and use the Update operation. As the record ID, I use the ID from the previous request.
Now comes my question: Where do I tell the node, what data should be put into the field? I can specify the field to update, where I put Fields: value, because this is the only field that needs my manual update. But where do I tell the node, what to put in that field/cell?
When executed, the node returns the old data again (see first json response above) instead of the newly set.
I tested a lot with the update operation and I cannot for the love of me find out, how it is working.
Hey @MutedJam - I have exactly the same use case and struggling to find a solution despite having followed your advice.
I want to update my Airtable base once the e-mail is found:
Here is the configuration:
But I’m facing some incoherence with the ID: Here is an example :
Hi @fischera, I am sorry to hear you’re having trouble but I am not sure I fully understand your question.
Your post suggests n8n might have updated the wrong dataset which looks different from the problem originally reported in this thread. Perhaps you can open a new topic and provide all details required to reproduce your problem, ideally in a simplified manner (a small Airtable with a handful of rows and a workflow that should update one of these rows but actually updates another)?
