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

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.

@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.

Can you please elaborate on how to do this?

I would love the Collaborator to be able to get a notification on the given deadline straight to their inbox. It would make all the difference

This has been requested for more than three years now. How is this not being prioritized in the roadmap? Multiple users and prospective users are saying this is a non-starter for their use-case. The people have spoken… The zapier solutions and other workarounds just don’t cut it.

You mentioned that with Zapier you’re not able to have this sync trigger on updated records.
As a suggestion to solve this, you can use zzBots to create a 2 way sync between Airtable and Google Calendar. This sync will trigger on new or updated Airtable records, as well on new or updated Google Calendar events.

You can create this sync at zzbots.com
Below is a step by step walkthrough video of how to create this sync in zzBots:

I want to be as helpful as I can. Let me know if there is anything I can do to answer any questions about this, or help set it up.
