Syncing is a one-way process from a source to a destination. This means that in the destination base you cannot:
- Add or delete records in the synced table
- Edit information in the fields that are synced
However, you can do many of the same things you can do with any regular table, including:
- Link existing tables to synced tables
- Create multiple views of the synced records
- Add additional fields to the synced records to enrich them
- Add a last modified field to see when the record was last synced
- Add a button field to open the original record to edit it
- Refer to the synced records from other tables using linked records and lookups
- Use a view of the synced table to trigger automations
Field types that will sync in the same format
Number, date, single line text, long text (Rich text), single select, multi select, and attachment.
Computed field type
Formulas, rollups and other computed field types that produce text, numbers, or dates will sync as their result type.
Field types that sync as text
Linked, lookup, collaborator, buttons with the Open URL action.
Field types that will not sync
Actions that will sync from the source view
- Adding a record (new rows may be added to the end of the view on the destination table)
- Editing a record
- Deleting a record
- Adding a field (“sync all fields” must be turned on)
- Changing a field’s configuration (supported fields)
- Deleting or restoring a field
- Changing the view’s filters or hidden fields
Actions that will not sync from the source view
Reordering, grouping, or sorting records.
||Synced tables per base
||Automatic sync available?
||Multi-source syncs (per table)
*A destination base can have a maximum of 20 synced tables (incoming). You may create as many syncable view share links as you want in a source base.
