Share a view editor for Airtable. Control which fields can be seen and edited.


With this extension, you can share an editor for an Airtable view. You can decide which fields are shown in the editor and share it with those you’d like to give access to.

ūüí°This extension is ideal for an employer who wants some employees to work on Airtable with limited access.

Demo

This extension can be used in 2 different ways:

1. Share URL

Here’s a sample link of an editable view that you can share with others.

2. Embed in your site

Here’s the same view embedded inside this page as an example.

Features
  • Unlimited users
  • Field-level access control
  • Support having multiple Airtable views.
  • Search function within the view and filters.
  • Optional feature to have the view password protected.
  • The view automatically adjusts its height when it’s embedded.
  • Transparent background so it can be embedded nicely anywhere.
  • Adjustable columns width.
  • Adjustable rows height.
  • Supports editing records via the built-in form.
  • You can allow users to download records as CSV.
  • Supports updating a checkbox field directly in the grid view itself (without having to load the form).
  • In-line editing support for single select and multi-select fields.
  • Clickable linked records: now you can connect multiple tables together and navigate between them.
ūüí°Tip

Making the view editable is optional, not required. So you can just embed a white-labeled view in your website!

Some fields in the grid say “Invalid value for field x”, why is that?

Please run the script to re-sync your base. Most likely the field name has changed.

Will anyone who is using this extension need to be a paid user with Airtable? If I wanted to share editor views with customers, would they each need “editor” permissions in Airtable? And would I need to in-turn pay for each of those users?

They would not need editor permissions (nor Airtable accounts). Only one Airtable account with “creator” or “editor” permission is required to setup a View Editor. Then, it can be shared with an unlimited amount of people. You would not have to pay extra for those people.

In Airtable my records are in a specific order, but when it goes through the extension it does not keep that same order. The records are presented in a random order. Is it possible to present the records in the same order as they appear in Airtable?

The rows order is based on the selected Airtable view in the extension settings. In order to control how the records are sorted, you have to select a ‘view’ in the settings.

If you have added new fields you have to run the script to re-sync the base structure again.

Grouped records: grouping feature is not supported.
Filter and sort: filtering and sorting settings are inherited from the defined Airtable view. No control options in the Editor.
Deleting records: feature is not supported.
Bulk edit: editing values in bulk is not supported.
Live updates: changes that are made on Airtable won’t reflect in the Editor until the page is refreshed. e.g. filtered records won’t be removed/added and sorted records won’t move until page is refreshed manually.
Row number: the row number on the left side of each record is not displayed.
Undo changes: no option for Command+Z.

Is it possible to have a standard filter for a view. I have several multi-selects that I would like to create combinations of.

You have 2 options to add filters to your view. You can allow users to select some preset views by adding them in your settings. You can also enable the ‘advanced filter’ option. Which would allow users to apply custom filters to the view.

Is it possible to have something like this (Grid View Editor) but with a login? (like with user and pin).

Yes, please check out our portal extension. It allows you to have a grid view with a login.
