Create multiple records in one request

#1

Hi,

Is it possible to create multiple records in one API request? The API documents only speak of creating one record at a time.

I have a quiz app and want to post the answers (one answer per record) to my AirTable, but since the AirTable API has a rate limit of 5 requests per second, I can’t just dump the answers via multiple requests, so want to post them all at once.

Is it possible?

Thanks!

Don’t think so…

Best, Arthur.

Hmmmm. OK.

For now I’ve used a timeout to ping off one record per 200ms… but this feels like kind of a hack.

That’s what I do too. :slight_smile:

Sorry for the archeology, but are there plans on implementing bulk creation/deletion of records with the API ?
