Airtable extensions are available on all Airtable plans, letting you extend the functionality of your bases.

Viewing extensions

You can view your base's extensions in a split-screen view or a full-screen view. To switch between them, click the expand button in the top right corner of the extensions panel, or simply click to drag the dividing line left or right.

Managing all base extensions


NOTE
As a reminder, if you are over the extensions limit you can either increase the number of extensions allowed by upgrading your workspace to a higher plan level or by removing extensions from any of the bases that are over limits by following the guidance outlined below.


Managing extensions within a base
The Extensions management window allows base Owners and Creators to:
  • Disable or enable extensions (Bulk enabling extensions is also possible)
  • Add new extensions
  • Search for existing extensions
  • See the Extension name, Extension type, Dashboard location, Added by, Added on, and Status for each extension within the base
  • Rename an extension, edit an extension's description, learn more about an extension, duplicate an extension, move an extension to another dashboard, and delete an extension.

To see and manage all of the extensions in a base click the drop-down in the top-left portion of the Extensions window. This will reveal a "Manage extensions" button.

Check which bases in a workspace are over their extension limit
To check which bases within a workspace are currently over limits with its extensions, head to the Account Settings page. From here, select a workspace on the left side under **Workspaces**. At the center of the page, under **Usage**, you should be able to see the current usage of each base (records, attachments, and extensions).
