Add data to EXISTING record using Web Clipper

Is this possible? If so, how?


So… not possible? You can’t use web clipper to add data to a field of an existing record?

I’m also curious about this. Didn’t everybody get the same email from @Katherilne at Airtable on Jan. 8 with the following update?

  • Web clipper now supports linked record fields , allowing you to select an existing linked record when clipping from a web page.

Great announcement but Airtable failed to update their User Manual to explain exactly “how” that’s supposed to happen.


What if you’re not clipping linked records. What if you just want to update any old record…

It would be great if you could elect at least one field in web clippers (like URLs or page titles) to act as a matcher.

When the value for the matcher field in the extension clipper matches that of your Airtable, an extra button called ‘Update’ could show up in the clipper.

That way you would have the choice to update an existing record or add a new one.


I just wondered if you know if this is now an option Dean, to use web clipper to add to an existing record?

I was thinking exactly the same, and came across your post, but can’t see any updates since.

Hi Caroline, I haven’t checked the clipper functionality for some some months. I did not find a no code solution at the time.

Has anyone discovered how this works yet?
