Airtable: Create multiple entries with static / dynamic data (array) and merge them?

Hi all,

Here is the scenario:

  1. I got data from a form (JotForm) with a static mail address and a multiselect field:

So the email is a normal field, the multiselect comes as Array:

Now, in Airtable I want to create one Record with this email and the data from the multiselect. Should Look like this:

In Airtable I have a multiselect field for the array data.

Now the Problem:
How can I add the Record with the static email and the array in the airtable I thought I have to somehow write the static email in airtable email field. in the same modul, in the same runnig automation I have to somehow iterate through the array and ad the data “on the fly”.

Maybe I have to chage the airtable field type? May to a text field?

With the Iterator Module I got 2 Bundles our of the Array. So maybe there is a way to merge the data in the airtable module.

Some kind of:

  1. Create Airtabel Record with MAIL and ARRAY DATA 1
  2. REPEAT
  3. Create Airtabel Record with MAIL and ARRAY DATA 1 + increment+1

Thank you much

Sometimes it´s easier then we think. I overcomplicated things.

Here is the whole automation:

In the Variable i use JOIN Fuction to make a string out of the Array. Then, in the Update Module from Airtable I use SPLIT function.

Et voila:
