Create a CSV file from AirTable to add to iPhone Contacts

How do I create a CSV contacts file that I can send via email? Steps:

  1. Aggregate data from AirTable
  2. Add data to a CSV
  3. Send a CSV file via email to myself that I can click on and add to my iPhone.

Basically I am trying to create a workflow that will take Client’s data from AirTable and create a contact in my iPhone.

Edit: I discovered that I can create a contact on iOS via a built-in integration. However, I am still curious to to create a CSV file for future.

Hey @slyfox,

You can use the search records action of the Airtable module, and then use the CSV module after that to turn those records into a CSV file.

You can send the output of that module as an attachment in an email, for example by using the Gmail module.

Hope this was helpful!

Feeding data into the CSV module is not a problem. How do I email the CSV file?

Passing data from CSV to Email module comes out as text; and not as a file.

You might be able to add the csv file as an attachment?

Otherwise there is an iOS module where you could directly create a new contact in your phone :slight_smile:

That is the problem. I can only pass text and not a CSV file.

This is exactly the issue i’m trying to solve for. How do i attach the csv file to an email step after it. The only option i see is to use the text from the create csv step.
