Automated CSV export via API?

  1. There’s no API call for exporting a table as CSV right? (couldn’t find it in API documentation)

  2. Has anyone written a script that mimic that functionality by iterating through all the records, replacing linked record IDs with names, and then, generating said CSV? If not, I’ll work on writing one…


Hi @Steven_Zhang! Unfortunately the API doesn’t have a call for that.

I’ve written something though, details are in your message box. :slight_smile:

Best, Arthur.


@Steven_Zhang @Tuur, I would find this very useful too. Did you manage to build this tool?


Yup. I’ll send you a PM. :slight_smile:


@Tuur This would be really useful for me too, would you be able to share?


Sure thing. PM sent. :slight_smile:


I am also interested in this. We would like to occasionally store CSVs


For ‘normal’ backups, please have a look at @Tim_Dietrich’s tool…

For more functionality (like the OP was talking about) feel free to PM me!


@Tuur, I am interested in this, but cannot seem to PM you.


PM incoming. {20 char filler}


Would you sharing with me as well? Thank you!


Just to be clear: it’s not a script or something. It’s a web service like Zapier.

Feel free to send me a PM in case you’re interested. :slight_smile:


hi, i’m very interested also, can you be kind to share it with me as well? thank you!


@Tuur, I am interested in seeing how this is done. Can you please send it to me as well? Thanks in advance.


@Tuur Can you please share the tool with me too.


Hi Tuur
I am also interested, may I find out more also?


Hey people! I’m pretty busy as an Airtable consultant at the moment. This means that unfortunately I don’t have much time to get in touch with everyone. I do respond to every PM though.

If I ever have a solution for the ‘general public’ I’ll let you guys now.


@Tuur I’m very interested in this. Would you mind sharing with me too please?


@Tuur I’d love access to the tool as well. Thanks!


Hello @Tuur!
I am very interested too, would you mind sharing it with me?

Thank you in advance!
