Set a new value for a single Airtable record by clicking a link
‚ö†ÔłŹ Update

What this extension does is that it prefills a form and auto-submit it.This workflow can now be replicated in miniExtensions Form by utilizing the auto submission feature (with prefill). People will have the same user experience. They would click on a link to update a record and you can customize the success message.

This extension generates URLs for every record in your table. When a URL is clicked, the record it belongs to will have a single value updated to a new value that is pre-defined.

This extension is ideal for approval workflows. It allows you to update a certain value in an Airtable record with a click. It provides you with a formula that generates a unique URL (webhook) for each record in your table. When any URL is opened, a specific value will get updated.

ūüí° New Feature

– The new value can now be fixed (static text) or dynamic (Airtable field) not shown in the video!

Example use cases:

  • Using a QR code scanner for quick attendees check-in inventory management..etc.
  • Sending an email verification request (e.g. click to verify your address).
  • Building an approval workflow logic in a shared view (e.g. click to approve attachment/mark task as completed).
    Without having to invite them as users.

Email verification workflow (example)

  1. Setup Zapier to send an email to the user when a new record is added in Airtable.
  2. Set the email to include the generated link that’s found in the extension’s formula field in Airtable.
  3. When the link is clicked, its matching record in Airtable would be updated with a pre-set value (e.g. checkbox > ‚ėĎÔłŹ)

ūüí°This extension works perfectly when used together with our other extension QR code generator

Troubleshooting

I clicked the URL, nothing happened!

You either made a mistake in the extension settings, or the value you’re trying to update is already updated!

Is there anything I can do to customize what happens after a user has clicked the link? I would love to be able to redirect them to a page or provide a customized message.
