Launched: Airtable Lite Pack! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Do we all agree that an Airtable Pack is one of the most requested Packs in Codaโ€™s history?

I am super excited to introduce the Airtable Lite Pack, sync your Airtable tables with Coda and update, delete and create new records with actions!

The name โ€œLiteโ€ is because it will require some additional work on your side as a user to have tables looking similar as how the look in Airtable, nothing difficult though and super quick :wink:

Yes, perhaps it is! You should paste a few enticing examples of Airtable juxtaposed with Coda.

This is a breakthrough! However Coda doesnโ€™t seem to be able to separate all the columns in the JSON. Iโ€™m not an expert on JSON so not really sure where to start looking for the issue.

thanks

Hi @Jarred_Cinman!

It is not exactly a bug, what happens is that Airtable does not return the properties when they are empty, which causes that when Coda goes and automatically separates as JSON some fields are not there so the columns are not created. It seems Coda takes into account only some records and not all to do the splitting.

The solution is simple, you can manually add the column and use a simple formula to get the values that you want:

After an amazing insight from one of the Coda Jedi Masters @Scott_Collier-Weir, now the Airtable Lite Pack includes a new action:

TriggerWebhook: Triggers an automation where the type is โ€˜When webhook receivedโ€™

Build your automation on Airtable and use this new action to trigger it from Coda!

:wave: Hey all!

Iโ€™ve been doing a LOT of work with Airtable/Coda recently and have been loving @Leandro_Zubrezkiโ€™s Airtable Lite Pack

I just made a Youtube video demonstrating how to use it in the case that its parameters, JSON data, etc is challenging to deal with. Hoping its helpful!

@Scott_Collier-Weir you truly are THE Coda guy :raised_hands:

Amazing and to the point example of how to use the Pack, thanks for sharing!

I have some news for the Airtable Pack!

You no longer need to separate as JSON the fields column, now the Pack tries to guess the type based on the value of each field so you can have your table up and running faster :wink:

Important notice!

With the new TableByUrl sync table you can have multiple tables or views in sync in the same Coda doc :muscle:

Enjoy :heart:
