👋Hi all! I’m Stephanie, product marketer at Airtable and I'm so excited to introduce some powerful new features to help teams build AI-powered apps on top of shared data—all within a single, scalable platform.

Today, we’re bringing AI to Airtable, making Airtable the easiest and fastest way to deploy AI-powered applications across the enterprise. We're also releasing new features to empower teams to get up and running and build powerful apps quickly with a suite of pre-built applications for marketing and product teams. 

 

  • Apps by Airtable: Get set up and running faster than ever with out-of-the-box apps built for critical use cases. Available for Enterprise.
  • Verified data: Easily protect and manage your org’s most important data from one place, while making it accessible to those who need it most. Available for Enterprise.
  • Two-way sync: Automatically sync data and edits back and forth between workflows so your teams can easily collaborate on the most up-to-date information. Available for Enterprise.

We’re rolling these updates out over the next week; if you don’t see them reflected in your workspace, hold tight! 

But something I’m super excited to announce is a new left navigation in Interface Designer. Now, we’re making it easier for you to quickly find and engage with the most important parts of their workflows. In addition to the updates we released back in March, Interface Designer makes it that much easier to build on Airtable. (And spoiler alert: we’re not done. Stay tuned for even more exciting updates to the app building experience)

Left Navigation: New left navigation panel for easy navigation between interfaces & pages.

But that’s not all, you’ll also see that we cleaned up the share view menu so that your teams can discover and share important views and data across the org.

These features will be a game changer for teams of all sizes—helping them build the apps they need on a scalable, secure platform. Learn more about these updates in our blog post!

We can’t wait to hear what you think, and see what you build, with these updates!

These are really exciting features - thank you! Sad that most of them are limited to enterprise customers.

For the AI features, will it be possible to query my Airtable bases, add and modify records, etc. using chatGPT-like interfaces?

Is there a way to turn off the left nav on an interface? It's taking up a lot of real estate and totally throwing off the designs I've worked so hard to perfect. ☹️

Yes, two-way-sync exclusively for Enterprise is a real downer for our five person team. So out of reach.

Airtable does this with every launch...... "Hey, here's a cool feature that you all have been barking about for years. Triiiiiiiiiiiiick, it's only available to Walmart and Apple."

So... all of these new features are enterprise only? 😑

@Stephanie_Sosa wondering what you meant by this statement..... "These features will be a game changer for teams of all sizes—helping them build the apps they need on a scalable, secure platform." Were you referring to teams of all sizes within a big enterprise? Or do you have a timeline to when the statement applies to small businesses as well?

Dear Airtable team, you really need to rework your pricing structure and plans, badly. The gap between Pro and Enterprise is impossible for (I believe) so many smaller companies and users. Adding features, limits, etc. a-la-carte would really cater to the individual needs of your customer base. It would help us grow more organically.

👋  Hey all! 

I want to recognize that, yes, a lot of these are currently for those on our Airtable Enterprise plan and I know this can be frustrating if you're not on Enterprise. 

Second, we hear you on pricing and packaging! The good news is that we're actively working on updating our plans to better enable customers to get access to enterprise features...so stay tuned in the coming months for updates 😄

Can't open interfaces in new tab, not an improvement imo if we're loosing that. I also want to echo the sentiment that it would be great if we could collapse the sidebar when not needed.

Would really like the ability to turn off the left panel navigation. It takes away valuable real estate for those of us who don't have a ton of pages. A list of a handful on top was perfect.

Edit: Having used this all day I really dislike it. It has shifted my interface in a way it made it less usable, making columns thinner. There's now a big long strip of completely empty colored space with no purpose. The resizing doesn't even go far enough, so I have empty space to the right and the bottom. Even making it collapsable would remove the old way of navigating on the top strip. This should absolutely be user choice. I can totally see how this would be useful for some people with lots of pages, so make it an option for them! It has made Airtable worse for me.
