Build custom apps on Airtable using Retool

Retool and Airtable make a great pairing.

Airtable is great for managing data around almost anything. Retool is a great for building internal tools on that data.

For instance, you use this Customer Success Airtable template and Retool to rapidly build a customer success tool (as we do in the video below). Or, you can use this Product Catalogue template and Retool to build a resource management tool.You could even expose a customer portal if you wanted to.

While not exactly no-code (you’ll need a little JavaScript / SQL), Retool takes care of most of the hard work so you can just focus on building your app. If you are comfortable with Airtable scripting - then you’ll be right at home in Retool.

We created a video tutorial that shows you step-by-step how to build a custom app using Retool with Airtable and our service - Sync Inc.

Sync Inc is just an option here. It makes it easier to build your app on Retool. But you can use the Airtable API if you are comfortable working working with pagination, rate limits, and filterBy.
