If you have exceeded the usage limits for your base, you may see an over limits warning to alert you. This articles overviews how to check your usage and what you can do to get your base(s) back within plan limits.
There is a limit of 500 bases and 5,000 collaborators per workspace. You can have an unlimited number of workspaces within your account.
Airtable is meant primarily for cases where users interact with data through the interface, and we find that once you get over 50-100K records, it really requires a more powerful querying language to meaningfully interact with the data.
Depending on your workspace plan, bases have a limit for how many records and attachment space is allotted.
Airtable plan limits are:
Free - 1,200 records, 2GB attachment space per base
Plus - 5,000 records, 5GB attachment space per base
Pro - 50,000 records, 20GB attachment space per base
- Enterprise - 100,000 records, 1000GB attachment space per base
Additionally, every base can have up to 1,000 tables and 500 apps.
- Views per table - 1,000
- Fields per table - 500
- Records per table - max of 50,000 records in a single table (total base record limits are still dependent on your plan type listed above)
How to check your usage and limits
If you ever need to check the number of records in a base or the amount of attachment space used, you can see each base's current usage on the workspace settings page where that base resides.
How to fix the over limits warning
To fix the over limits warning you will need to do one or more of the following (according to your workspace plan):
- delete unnecessary records
- delete empty records
- check for filtered records
- split contents of the base across multiple bases
- download data via CSV or even paste old records into another base to "archive" them elsewhere
The "over limits" badge sometimes takes a bit of time to update, so if your base is now within the plan limits, you should see that alert disappear shortly.
How do I increase my plan's limits? How much would it cost?
You can find monthly and annual pricing on Airtable's pricing page. For more information about upgrading your workspace—check out our support article about upgrading your plan.
Once my base has been marked as "Over limits" am I immediately blocked from adding to that base?
After a base reaches its plan's record or attachment storage limit, we do not immediately restrict you from adding more information to the over-limit base. We provide a reasonable timeframe to either upgrade the workspace or to bring the base back within its plan's limits.
I just deleted some information from my base and it's now under the plan limit. Why do I still see the "Over limits" badge?
The "Over limits" badge will take a few hours to update, even after bringing the base down within its plan's limits.
