Overall Limitations

Major
  • Records limit: the max number of records that can be loaded at once is 500.
  • 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.
  • Inserting records: can’t add them directly on the sheet, but we give you the option to embed an Airtable form in the editor.
  • Deleting records: feature is not supported.
  • Undo changes: no option for Command+Z.
  • Bulk edit: editing values in bulk is not supported. Only 1 at a time (no shift+select).
  • 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.
  • Row number: the row number on the left side of each record is not displayed.
  • Column width: unadjustable.
  • Row height: unadjustable.

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.
