Airtable is stepping up its game with a series of exciting updates that cater to the needs of mobile users and enhance team collaboration. Here's a detailed look at what's new and how these changes are making an impact:
Mobile Interfaces on iOS: Work Anywhere, Anytime
Airtable's iOS update brings the power of managing interfaces to mobile. 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. This includes the ability to view recently opened and starred bases and interfaces, add comments, update fields, search for a particular base or interface, and navigate different views like List, Gallery, Calendar, Kanban, and Form. It's a significant step in making Airtable more accessible and intuitive for mobile users.
Speed Up Your Workflow with Three New Features
Send Actionable Notifications in Slack
Imagine receiving a Slack notification and being able to make quick changes to Airtable records without switching between apps. Airtable now allows you to turn Slack notifications into buttons that let team members update records directly. By adding the "Slack: Send an actionable message" step to an automation, you can streamline your work, making collaboration more seamless and efficient.
Add Groups to Your List View
Organization is key to managing data, and Airtable's new update lets you add up to two groups to your List View. You can use the drag-and-drop function to move records between groups, allowing for better representation of your data. It's a simple yet powerful way to get more organized and visualize your information effectively.
Filter for Failed Automations
Debugging automations just got easier. You can now identify all of your failed automations at once with a filter, allowing for quicker troubleshooting. Want to see your successful runs? You can set a filter for that too. This feature enhances your ability to manage and optimize automations, saving valuable time and effort.
Learn More with Interface Designer Webinars
Airtable is also offering Interface Designer trainings through webinars. These cover everything from building a custom interface for your Airtable app to sharing it with the right people and incorporating Airtable AI to accelerate workflows.
