Webhooks for Records

#63

I take the lack of response from Airtable since the message on June 2017 as “this is a lot of work” and perhaps “it’s more complex than we originally thought” :slight_smile:

Which is a completely fair position.

Once it is implemented, webhooks for changed records has the potential to be a game-changer for Airtable, and if done well, could massively open up the types of systems and solutions that can be developed on the platform.

Any update from admin on where the state of webhooks is? Would love to use webhooks also. I assumed (unfairly) that airtable would have them before joining :frowning:

I wanna do some calculations whenever a row is added… I can either ask airtable every 10 seconds, or airtable can simply notify me… I need webhooks

Looks like this might be in the works.

API ROADMAP
Here are a few things that we’ll expose in the API shortly:

  • Transparently creating new multiple choice options when you update records.
  • Querying for recent changes.
  • Receiving notifications about changed records.

I hope it means “webhook” and not “Send yourself an email when a record changes.”

+1! This would push it over the edge and make it that much easier to justify switching. The one thing this application is kind of lacking is automation and that would get this that much closer to that!

+1! Much like the ‘last modified’ feature request, I’m hopeful my additional vote here pushes this one over the edge after 2+ years.

+1 just started heavily using Airtable and was wondering if constant polling with the best practice for custom integrations based on record creation/updates…webhooks would be much easier

This is one of the major things needed here I think. It would also help reduce the amount of API requests people do to check the state of records.

Any idea when this might be enabled @Airtable @Airtable_Support
