Automatically backup your Airtable base in Dropbox

With this extension, you can automate exporting CSVs for Airtable Tables! The CSVs will be automatically uploaded to Dropbox. This extension can be scheduled to run regularly, and supports webhooks. Every time the extension is re-run, the CSVs on Dropbox will be replaced with the most recent data.

Note: the exported CSVs may look slightly differently than the ones that can be exported through Airtable’s UI. Please make sure to check the example CSV below.

Example

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 tables (they must be in the same base).
  • Option to hiding certain fields.
  • Supports being scheduled or triggered by Webhook.
  • Supports exporting Markdown to retain formatting for the new rich text field.

Use Cases

  • Automatic backups
  • Pair it with a scheduled email
  • Use IMPORTDATA(url) function in Google Sheets
  • Anyone who often downloads CSV files manually
Linked Records

Unlike Airtable CSV download, Airtable API doesnā€™t include linked record names by default. It will be shown as IDs instead. So to fix that you would need to add a lookup field that shows the linked record’s name. We recommend to use formulas not just for linked records, even for currency, date formats and many other field types that’re not fully supported in Airtable API.
