Allow public to modify one field


#1

Requested feature
I’d like public users to view two pictures (single record) and vote which they prefer. Right now, I can only expose a blank form.

Effect on current pricing model
Seems to violate a boundary for the business model (only named users can access updatable data). Maybe the boundary can be maintained by only allowing a single field to be edited?


#2

Is there a way to achieve updating Airtable records via APIs with, say Typeform? Hopefully anonymous contributions could work with the business model if the source were labeled, eg my_voting_typeform_api

Would like to hear the outcome of this as there is a clear need for this functionality.


#3

Need to explore your idea. Seems like I might be able to load the pictures to typeform and then push results back into airtable via zapier.

Annoying, but worth exploring. Thank you.


#4

It’s easy enough to use Airtable Integrations - Zapbook - Zapier to do static once-off voting and update.

The catch with handing off to a third party tool like Typeform, is to have it dynamically populate voting options from current data values in your database.

Let me know what you end up doing @Michael_Schoeffler :slight_smile:

I expect to dig into this in a week or two. Will post if I get anywhere.
