Hey there community -
I recently joined the Product team to lead Developer Relations! I get to work directly with the engineers building our developer tools, and advocate for things that this lovely community needs to succeed.
Specifically, my role is to listen to, learn from, and contribute to this community on behalf of Airtable. I’m dedicated to making announcements about recent changes, popping into hot debates and discussions on this forum, and answering Airtable questions as they come along.
From the outside looking in, this community has been thriving. I’m excited to get to know each of you.
That being said, it wouldn’t be a valuable post without an announcement! We recently added the ability to write field descriptions and write description data when creating a field or table using the SDK.
Field descriptions can now be edited and specified when creating a new field:
- Added field.updateDescriptionAsync (docs).
- Added optional description argument to table.createFieldAsync (docs).
- Added optional description property to field objects accepted by base.createTableAsync (docs).
You can find more information about these, and other improvements in 1.9.0 in our changelog.
If you have questions, concerns, feedback feel free to drop them below.
