Airtable extensions are available on all Airtable plans, letting you extend the functionality of your bases.
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.
You can also expand an individual extension to fill the whole screen by mousing over it and clicking the expand button.
To rearrange extensions, mouse over the extension you wish to move and click and drag using the drag handle in the top right corner. To resize an extension, click and drag from the bottom right corner.
Renaming, describing, sharing, and more
To rename, add/edit the description, share, adjust settings, manually reload, learn more about this type of extension, duplicate, move, disable or delete an extension; click on the dropdown arrow next to the name of the extension.
To add a new dashboard, navigate to the extensions dashboard you're currently on. On the left of the dashboard, you'll see the name of your current dashboard. Click the down arrow to the right of the name, and select "Add a dashboard."
Creating and modifying dashboards
To rename or delete a dashboard, click on the three dots near the "+ Add an extension" button. This will bring up a small window to make the desired adjustment.
Managing all base extensions
- 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.
Clicking this button will open the Extensions management window.
To bulk enable disabled extensions, click the checkbox next to whichever extensions you'd like to enable and then press the "Enable x extensions" button in the top-right portion of the screen.
Additional options can be found by clicking the "..." three-dot icon to the far right of each extension.
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 above.
No. Disabled extensions don't count against the base limit. However, in order to enable that extension again, another extension may need to be disabled the base is already at its limit.
