- Ability to schedule files to be exported regularly.
- Unchanging URL for CSV files even when exported again.
- Ability to trigger export function by a Webhook.
- Supports exporting Markdown to retain formatting for the new rich text field.
Some fields contain random characters, why?
These are linked fields showing record IDs. To solve this, add a lookup field and use it instead. We recommend using formulas not just for linked records, even for currency, date formats, and many other field types that are not fully supported in Airtable API.
Will exported files include attachments?
Attachment fields will only contain direct links to the files. This is not a limitation in our product. That’s just the nature of the CSV file format. It’s designed to store text data in a spreadsheet. It’s not possible to store image files in them. However, if your goal is just to show the images in Excel, then there’re ways to do that.
Some fields are displayed in the wrong format, why?
By default, Airtable API doesn’t show fields in the same way they look on Airtable. For example, linked record names will be shown as IDs instead. To fix that you would need to add a lookup field that shows the linked record’s name. We recommend using formulas for many field types like currency, date, and any other field that needs to be formatted.
