Add "Updated Timestamp" for rows returned via an API call


#1

Would it be possible to add the “updated time” to the API response for each row returned?

This is quite necessary specially when building synchronization applications. By knowing the last time a row was updated, we can either trigger a call to synchronize it or skip it completely. This would decrease the load on Airtable’s side by a lot. Currently developers are forced to just update every single record on Airtable every x hours because there is no way to know whether a record was updated or not. I can force updates on specific records by adding my own timestamp every time I synchronize but that still requires a manual process.

Thanks
