Automatically back up your Airtable or easily integrate data with other apps

Need to pull in data from Airtable to automate some reports? With this extension, you can automate exporting CSVs for Airtable. This extension can be scheduled to run regularly and supports webhooks. It provides you with a static URL for each CSV. Every time the extension is re-run, the URL would reflect the latest CSV with the latest data.

This CSV was exported with the extension for this Airtable View. To download the CSV, right-click on it, and then click “Download Linked File”.

Features

  • Supports multiple views from up to 10 different tables/bases.
  • 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 rich text field.
  • For now, the extension is limited to exporting 2000 records per file.
💡Attachments

If you need to download Airtable attachments, you can use this extension.

Use Cases

  • Pair it with a scheduled email
  • Use IMPORTDATA(url) function in Google Sheets
  • Sync WordPress posts via WP All Import

Troubleshooting

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 of 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.

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.

I want to create a new post on WordPress when a field updates. For example, when I’m done creating an outline for a writer, and the client approves that outline, I want to be able to set a start date and have WordPress automatically create a post based on the data that’s available from the outline: title, category, tags, slug, meta description/excerpt, and featured image.

Although, we don’t have an integration with WordPress directly, but you can use our CSV exporter extension to achieve that. You can use the generated CSV URL to create new posts using some WordPress plugins.
