Share a basic editor for Airtable with a password-protected URL. Control which fields can be edited.

Update: we launched an extension that allows you to update exiting records using Airtable form.
It might fits you more depending on your needs.


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

💡This extension is ideal for an employer who wants some employees to do light work on Airtable with limited access.

Overall Limitations

Major
  • Records limit: the max number of records that can be loaded at once is 500. (capped for performance reasons)
  • Grouped records: grouping feature is not supported.
Minor
  • Filter and sort: filtering and sorting settings are inherited from the defined Airtable view. No control options in the Basic Editor.
  • Deleting records: feature is not supported.
  • Bulk edit: editing values in bulk is not supported. Only 1 at a time (no shift+select).
  • Live updates: changes that are made on Airtable won’t reflect in the Basic 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.
  • Column width: unadjustable.
  • Row height: unadjustable.
Notes

Inserting records: editor users can add new records by clicking a button that brings up an Airtable form (not like the bottom row in Airtable).

Fields detection: field names are automatically detected, but not sorted like Airtable. However, you can re-order columns manually. If a field is completely empty, it must be entered manually. Also, if a field name is updated in Airtable, it has to be updated in miniExtensions as well.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

There’s no limit on the number of records you can process. Unlike Zapier and Integromat, our pricing is per month, not per record. However, there might be limitations by third party integrations. Also, some extensions can only run on one table at a time. Please refer to each extension’s page on whether or not it supports running on multiple tables simultaneously.

Yes. Submit your request here and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

No. If you’re not sure that an extension will be a good fit for you, please note that we usually make updates when users request them. We try our best to make things work like expected.
