REQUEST: allow clients to access the interface, not the backend

I can’t find this request yet, which surprises me.

I LOVE interfaces for sharing complicated data with not-so-tech-savvy clients. They love the interface as well. However, they often end up on the “backend” and break stuff anyway.

I’d love to find a way to give people access to the interface, but not (or read-only) to the actual base.

Upvote from me for this request. I would love to use interface to share a dashboard view of certain data which I can embed or provide a private link to for clients to view, but I absolutely do not want to invite them to be collaborators on the base which is currently the only option for sharing.

Another up upvote from me. Embedding Interfaces into a website would be extremely useful. In my use case we’d be able to allow clients to see live updates on each of their projects in a more user-friendly interface than just a filtered records view.

it’s an upvote from me too! I would love to share interfaces to keep the team up to date, but that’s all that needs sharing - the interface makes it much easier to communicate and the data clearer without me having to train the entire team across all departments and different workplaces pm how to use airtable.

The topic at the following link would achieve the underlying goal that you are after:
Interface sharing option suggestion - Ask the community / Interface Designer - Airtable Community Forum

Actually this request topic is different than the one Bill_Christo shared. The link you shared was simply asking to be able to share an interface like a view. This ask it to be able to share an interface with edit access, Without allowing access to the base. This would allow non-tech savvy individuals to interact with the data but Not have access to the base.
