Integrate the AirTable automation into your playbook to ensure prompt updates of the AirTable records for newly submitted responses in Google Forms. Add a new step and select "Get record" to select which record to update, then, "Update record" from the list of AirTable automations.

Connect AirTable to Relay if you haven't already, then fill out the mandatory and relevant details. You can reference fields from Google Forms to automatically pass along the right data.
