Launched: Airtable Lite Pack! 🙌

Do we all agree that an Airtable Pack is one of the most requested Packs in Coda’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 “Lite” 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 doesn’t seem to be able to separate all the columns in the JSON. I’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 ‘When webhook received’

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