Calendar view enhancement requests (reminders, delete prompts, persistent view)


+++++1 Just signed up for a trial for personal use, with a view to using in our startup.

Lack of notifications on items when the due date/time rolls around is a critical gap. Using Zaps and the like is just a bandaid and not a sufficient solution.

Until that is in place, it just won’t do what we need, despite it’s benefits in other ways over Trello, Asana etc

Sorry - but this is a major gap.


+1 on notifications. It will make Airtable the most customizable task management tool of all.


Holy cow. I was loving Airtable until I realized that this feature not only doesn’t exist, but they have apparently taken no measures in the last two years to ensure their user base that it was going to be created. We’re out, sorry dev team. That’s a huge problem.


guys … going to check that out, it can send mails based on new records in specific views, like filtered by “one week from now option” or “today” to set reminders that come by email. Also you could have a checkmark “Remind” and it would be filtered in a view, so whenever you check it it sends a mail. Gonna try it.

  • 1 on this feature. Any updates from Airtable on this? I just paid for a premium subscription, and I’m considering getting my money back.


They have just raised a $100m funding but couldn’t sort out a native due date reminder, that is available on ALL other to do apps.


+1 @Airtable_support please integrate a reminders feature! It’s an imperative part of project management


Agreed :slight_smile: Would love to receive a notification from Airtable anytime I am linked to a card with an upcoming date.


+1 a native reminder feature. integrations are a workaround for now, though.


+1 no-ti-ca-tion functionality for calendar, both in formula as well as in calendar view! Please!


Yes please! Zapier provides workarounds, but it’s far from perfect.


Not even a reminder, just a simple notification tool that can notify anyone based on any circumstance… basically a fancy IF() function.


Hello Airtable team,

Has there been any update on this? An email notification when a task is overdue is make or break for my company as well. Multiple users have been requesting this for a couple of years now so I’m assuming this has to be a priority


@Katherine_Duh @Airtable_Support First off, I think your product is fantastic. I’m in charge of coordinating projects for my engineering team, and your product is fantastic for such coordination, EXCEPT for the lack of a native notifcation feature. Airtable needs a native notification feature with the date field. It would be a great benefit to my team’s work flow and productivity if there was a convenient and efficient way for us to be reminded of upcoming due dates, check-in dates, milestone dates, deadlines, etc. Optimally, the notfication feature would simply be a part of the drop-down options menu for the date field, and would allow for multiple notifications to be sent to at various times, via various services, i.e. SMS, email, Slack, etc. I think, and so do many others based on just this thread, that adding a native notification feature would be a great addition to your already wonderful product. If you are developing this feature at the moment, please let us know.
