Creating a form to update a record

We need to be able to create a form that updates certain fields in a given record - not overwriting what is already in there, but adding to it. It appears that this cannot be done within Airtable but I hope I am wrong (or that there’s a simple add-on that can help). The adding-to aspect of this is vital for our purposes though. Can anyone help?


Unfortunately, that cannot be done natively with Airtable. You would need to use this tool:

Thanks Scott! Is it possible to use that tool to add to rather than replace the existing data in a given record? This is where I keep running into problems.

Yes, the terminology is called “editing” or “updating”, not “adding to”. Yes, you can do that with many of their tools: the form tool, the client portal tool, the view editor tool, etc.
