I would like to monitor when anyone changes certain field configurations (e.g. changes the field type, or edits a drop-down selection or similar) so that downstream dependencies can be adjusted or the change can be rolled back. The field manager seems helpful but doesn't seem to be proactive enough for this purpose.

This can only be done by writing your own custom programming code to monitor this.

Airtable offers outbound webhooks that can alert you when your base schema changes, but there is no UI for this.

Thanks for the quick reply @ScottWorld. I had seen that documentation and have no issue writing custom code around this, the only option I had seen so far was to retrieve the base schema and compare against historics, but there actually seem to be webhooks for recording field changes etc. Thanks!

You’re welcome! Glad I could help!
