Instead of downloading Airtable attachments one record at a time, compile and export all attachments from multiple records in a given field into a single zip file. You can also limit it to only export attachments from a specific Airtable view.
⚠️ Tested with thousands of records and multiple GB.
- Export all attachments with 1-click.
- An option to limit downloads to a specific Airtable view.
- An option to rename attachment files after a value in another Airtable field (e.g. formula).
- An option to preserve original filenames.
The Airtable support team made a great video recently. It walks you step-by-step through how to create a miniExtensions account, connect it with Airtable via the API key, and use the bulk download app.
I clicked run and nothing immediately happened, why?
Compiling and zipping take time. It might be a while before downloading starts. Especially if you have many records. Be patient!
Can I download attachments from a single record only rather than downloading every attachment in a field?
Yes, add a new View in Airtable and filter it so that it only includes the one record you want.
