Migrating your relational databases from Airtable to Coda can be daunting. Previously, Airtable bases could only be imported through CSV files, which was cumbersome for highly interconnected tables and complex schemas.
Today, we’re excited to share a new Airtable Importer (beta) to make it easier to consolidate your data-driven workflows into Coda.
With a few clicks, you can import Airtable bases into Coda while maintaining column types, table styling, and linked relations. All your table views arrive organized in subpages, making your data instantly accessible to Coda’s richer table functionality, all-in-one canvas, formulas, Packs, automations, and more––at no extra cost.
Open your Coda doc, type /airtable or click on Insert > Import on the top right of your doc to get started. Once you connect your Airtable account and select which data to import, watch your records, views, and column types flow in!
To help you get started, we’ve created a helpful how-to guide with step-by-step instructions.
- The Airtable Pack integrates your Airtable bases in Coda, so you can manage records using actions, take webhook automations further, add context around data, and connect with APIs that require OAuth2.
- The Notion importer, Confluence importer, and CSV importer provide other options for consolidating your tool stack.
- Full-page embeds let you add full-page views of external apps, so you can create instant windows into your Airtable bases right in a Coda doc.
- Linked relations make it easier to edit, sync, and summarize data in related tables, such as Projects and Tasks.
