Allow people to update some parts of existing records without giving them full access to Airtable

This extension allows you to create a form for your users to edit existing records in Airtable. You would select the fields that you’d like to be included in the form. The extension will then generate a unique URL for every record in your table using a formula field. You can share those URLs with anyone. When a URL is clicked, it will load your form with all the selected fields pre-filled already. The user would be able to edit whatever they want. Once they hit save, the record would be instantly updated on Airtable.

The extension allows you to do almost anything that you can do with Airtable Form, plus many extra features. Our goal is to add every possible feature in one powerful, yet easy to use tool. If you are looking for a specific feature to be added, reach out to us!

The display of a date field doesn’t match the formatting in Airtable. In Airtable it is “European” but in the miniExtensions form it is MM-DD-YYYY.

I want a simple way for our team to update existing records without having to use the grid view of contacts. I was expecting to have a form that you could look up the contact by Client Name and then add/update fields.

I want to use this to send to an Airtable database of students email addresses to ask them if they have received a university interview. Is it possible to have a unique form for each person so pre-filled with their name? The problem I’ve had in the past with a normal form is that we get multiple entries and the responses aren’t hooked to the actual database so I can’t follow up with those who haven’t replied yet.

Go to airtable.com/account to find your Airtable API key then paste that key in the “Airtable User API Key” field on the extension page.

Is it possible to create a record with a form and after submitted redirect to a nice (automatic) unique record page of that same record? which combination of extensions should I use for this? I’m lost with so many options, I’ve checked and checked but none seem to match this behavior.
