Guide: Build your own Airtable extensions

Airtable terminology

Extension - Extensions are modular components that add visuals or functionality to a base, and were shown in the base's dashboard. Users can create custom extensions, or they can use extensions created by Airtable or other open-source extensions.

Getting started with the Loom extension

You can install the Loom extension from the extensions gallery. Because the public Loom URLs can be viewed by anyone who has the link, no API key is needed. Please note that you need a Loom account or Loom URLs to use this extension. You can sign up for Loom here.

When you first install the extension, you will be prompted to select a cell that has a publicly shared Loom link. These will be in the form of https://www.loom.com/share/xxxxx.


Selecting any text or URL cell will display a playable Loom video in the extension. If the Loom link is password-protected, you will be prompted to enter the video password in the extension.
