What’s new in Airtable: August 2023

This month’s product updates include new ways to get work done.

You asked, we listened: mobile interfaces are now available with our iOS update.

Whether you're commuting, away from your desk, or simply prefer working on your phone or tablet, you can now effortlessly view and manage interfaces from Airtable’s iOS app.

You’ll also find new capabilities that make Airtable even more intuitive (scroll down for the details).

  • View recently opened and starred bases and interfaces
  • Add comments
  • Update fields
  • Search for a particular base or interface
  • Navigate different views, including List, Gallery, Calendar, Kanban, and Form

Speed things up with these three features

These new features make it even easier to get working in Airtable.

Send actionable notifications in Slack: Make quick changes to records–without switching between apps. Turn Slack notifications into buttons that let team members update Airtable records directly. Just add the “Slack: Send an actionable message” step to an automation to streamline your work.

Add groups to your List View: Add up to two groups to your List View so you can get more organized. Use the drag-and-drop function to move records between groups and better represent your data.

Filter for failed automations: Want to know where you went wrong in your automation? You can now identify all of your failed automations at once with a filter, then start debugging. You can also set a filter to show your successful runs.
