Hidden fields in view share links

  • Dark
    Light

By default, view share links will not show hidden fields in the view that is being shared, even if you expand a record in the view share link. However, please be aware that there are some exceptions to this:

  • In a grouped grid view, the field that is being used to group the records will always be visible.
  • In a calendar view, the date field(s) that the view uses to display records will always be visible.
  • In a gallery or kanban view, whichever attachment field has been designated as the cover field will always be visible.
  • In a kanban view, the field that is being used to stack the records will always be visible.

Also note that if you change what fields are visible in the view in Airtable, the view share link will automatically update in real time to show the most up-to-date version of the view.
Additionally, when configuring your view share links, you have the option to show all fields in expanded records. This means thateven if you have certain fields hidden in the view,all fields will be made visible when records are expanded in the view share link.
