I have very recently discovered Airtable and I have to say that I love it. For personal data and projects it would always be my first choice.
TL;DR: views and forms IN the app like embedded views/forms, please
I want to move some of my clients from Podio to Airtable, but I am too scared to do so. It is far too easy for ordinary users to delete data, break relationships, enter garbage, fail to enter required fields…
In short, the data is TOO accessible to too many users.
I’d love to expose data in a limited way via forms and views that limit accessibility and validate data entry. I had toyed with the idea of ONLY using embedded forms for data entry, but that seems like a terrible approach.
This isn’t a very specific feature request, but I wish that, in addition to its awesome ‘back-end’, Airtable had a ‘front end’ layer that allowed me to control data entry, access and visibility, based on field-level, item-level, table-level and user-level privileges.
