Restricting a user from viewing a table or view

Hi - Our warehouse is a third-party service provider. Whenever they receive our product, we’d like to have them log one field within a single view.

However, much of the Airtable is confidential information that the warehouse frankly does not need to see.

Is there a way we can restrict or provide viewing/editing permissions for a specific table or specific view within a table?

If not, what’s a good workaround? Thank you.

If you want people to actually edit a field (as opposed to just viewing a field), Airtable doesn’t give you a way to limit them to just a specific table or just a specific view. You would need to turn to external tools for that.

This tool would probably do the trick for you:

Thank you, Scott. Because we use a block to first find a record, then input in data for the field, this third party extension wouldn’t eliminate the block functionality altogether, correct?

People yearning for this functionality!

Using an extension would not require you using a block first. But check out the other tools on that website — there is likely one that would work for your needs: https://miniextensions.com

If you can’t find one, you can use Stacker, which gives you complete control over everything you need to create a customer-facing portal into your Airtable base.
