Downloading Grouped Records Only

Is it possible to only download a group of records and not the entire record table?

Absolutely! The CSV download is restricted to the records visible in the active view. Use filters to control the displayed records, then the download will match.

Follow on question - Is it possible to switch off the download feature for certain users or user levels?

Yes.
I also want to ask:
How can we switch off Download_CSV?
either for certain users, or user-levels?

It’s a critical feature for our company

“Follow on question - Is it possible to switch off the download feature for certain users or user levels?”

Looking at the permissions overview page (linked below), I don’t see any mention of disabling CSV downloads at any level, but it may be related to another option and just not mentioned specifically. You might want to write directly to Airtable support to inquire further.
