I’m starting to see the power of Coda and am interested in using it as a Contact database.
I have been using airtable to receive data from multiple sources, for example if someone fills out a form. These sources are “tagged” with an “activity id” which I use Zapier to add or modify a record in my master contacts. I can then see all the activity records.
What I’ve done so far
- I created a doc with both tables, activity (named Log) and contacts.
- I created a button that sends the activities to the contact table
Problem is with the Look up column in the contacts table. when the formula fills the look up, it doesn’t “Append” the activity, but replaces it. I couldn’t figure out how to adjust the formula to append.
This is my latest attempt at the button formula:
The part that says “Activities+ID” is the problm. This returns weird brackets and commas that it doesn’t recognize in a look up
