Set a new value for a single Airtable record by clicking a link

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 fro approval workflows. It allows you to update a certain value an in 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.

⚠️ Features Update

– The new value can now be fixed (static text) or dynamic (Airtable field) not shown in the video!
– The extension now supports up to 10 different tables.

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 > ☑️)

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