Why can’t I see the option to turn on sync for my view?
We currently only support syncing from grid views.
What if the view share link is password-protected or email domain-restricted?
We respect password and email domain restrictions. For example, if the view share link is restricted to dundermifflin.com, a dundermifflin.com Airtable account will be required to sync that view to any base. Learn more about sync permissions here.
What happens if the view share link is removed or regenerated at the source?
The sync will pause until it is re-authenticated. You’ll see an error icon ⚠️, along with the time the table last synced.
To re-authenticate, you’ll need a new syncable view share link. Then, click the dropdown next to the destination table, select Update sync configuration, and provide the new link.
What happens if the Airtable account of the person who set up the sync is deactivated?
If the shared view is domain restricted and the user that set up the sync loses access to the source base, the sync will pause. It may be worthwhile for an admin user to set up important syncs so that they are not interrupted.
If the option to delete records when they are deleted or hidden in the source table is enabled, how can I determine if one of the synced records has been deleted or hidden?
You can add a button field with the ‘Open Source Record’ action.. If the button is grayed out, the record has been deleted or hidden in the source view.
Will the synced table count toward the destination base’s record limits?
Yes. For example, if you sync a view with 1,000 records from Base A, Base B will count the 1,000 synced records towards that bases total record limit.
Can I “daisy chain” syncs by syncing from the destination base to other bases?
Is there a way to filter for records that were deleted, or filtered out of source view in the source base?
Yes. If you choose to keep records in the destination base when they are deleted in the source base, then you can add a sync source record button field. If the button is not clickable, then the record was deleted, hidden, or filtered out of view in the source base.
