Hello Airtable Community!

We wanted to gather all of May’s product updates in one place, to make sure we keep you in the loop.


Here is a list of changes, big and small, that we introduced in May:

  • Users now have the ability to change the trigger of an automation after creation!
  • When rendering records in an email we now fully support:
    • backslashes in a record’s content
    • list and grid column names that include underscores
    • truncating text fields when rendering records in a grid
  • Custom scripts no longer have to adhere to the 1 second limit of CPU time.
  • We officially launched the “Sync Source” field to help manage multi-source syncs.
    • For new multi-source syncs we’ll automatically create this field when you add a second sync source. For existing syncs, you can enable the field in your sync setting.
  • The View sidebar now supports fuzzy search.
  • When an automation is broken we have new error messaging to indicate that an error has occurred.
    • We’ve also added an explicit error to indicate when an automation’s external accounts have a problem and need to be reconnected.
  • When using the “Jira Cloud Create issue” action, we now require users to have the proper Jira permissions before setting the Reporter and Assignee fields.
  • We are happy to announce that both our mobile iOS and Android users have the ability to duplicate records!
