The chime block is part of Airtable Blocks, a Pro plan feature. Blocks let you extend the functionality of your bases: you can use blocks to bring new information into Airtable, visualize and summarize your records in colorful ways, and even directly integrate your Airtable bases with your favorite apps.
With the chime block, you can set up a trigger that will play an audio notification any time a record is added or removed from a view.
Watch this video to learn more about how to set up and use a chime block, or read on for further information.
After installing a chime block, you'll automatically get brought to the new block's settings page. From here, you can specify the table and view with which you'd like the chime block to be associated, and whether you want the chime to trigger when a record is added or when a record is removed.
You can choose from a number of different sound effects. Press the blue play button to hear a preview of the chime sound.
Click the blue + Add a trigger button to add additional triggers to the block.
When you're ready, click the Done button. When a record is added to or removed from a view, the chime block will trigger and play the specified sound.
