Copy direct link to a record


#1

I would like to copy a record’s link directly from the context menu, instead of having to find it inside the e-mail body:

Hi Ben! I recommend expanding the record and copying the URL in your browser address bar. If you’re using one of our desktop apps you can type ctrl/cmd + shift + c, or open the File menu and click “Copy URL to Clipboard.” Hope this helps! :slight_smile:

Ben,

This isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, but it’s another approach…

You can create a formula field that generates the record’s URL.

For example:
https://airtable.com/tblXYZ5U6MQbDEqM3/” & RECORD_ID()

Replace “tblXYZ5U6MQbDEqM3” with your table’s ID. The calculated URL should point directly to the record using the table’s primary view.

You can also specify a view, like this: “https://airtable.com/tblXYZ5U6MQbDEqM3/viwXYzK4JP4JDlHU/” & RECORD_ID()

Great, this is what I was missing!

A bit cumbersome for my use case, but quite interesting indeed! Might be useful in the future, thanks for sharing!
