Within Airtable, each record has a unique identifier known as a Record ID. If you are familiar with Entity-Relationship Diagrams or ERDs, then the record id would be the primary key.
For most, record id's remain behind the scenes. However, learning to find and use record ids will also help you to better leverage your information organized in Airtable.
How do I find a record id?
- After expanding a record, take notice of your web address bar. The url will show something like 'airtable.com/tblxxxxxxxxx/viwxxxxxxxx/recxxxxxxxx'. The 'recxxxxxxx' portion is the unique record id.
- Add a formula field and use the RECORD_ID() function to surface each unique record id in a table.
