The description app gives you the ability to write rich text notes or descriptions for other apps or your entire base. Use it to provide additional context for your base, store high-level checklists, or create documentation for your fellow team members to get them up to speed.
The description app is part of Airtable Apps, a Pro plan feature. Apps let you extend the functionality of your bases: you can use apps 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.
Using the description app
The description app has a rich text editor that allows you to format your text in a variety of useful ways. You can provide headers, bold/italicize/underline text, create numbered lists, bulleted lists, or checklists, and turn text into links.
To insert an image into the description app, locate an image on your device, and copy it to your clipboard (CMD+C on Mac or CTRL+C on Windows). Then, select where you want to insert the image in the description app, and paste the image in (CMD+V on Mac or CTRL+V on Windows).
The description app can store up to 100,000 characters. If your description becomes too long, you will see an error message alerting you:
Any new changes added while this error is present will not be saved. You must remove some text or formatting until the error disappears, and then your changes will save.
