I am new to Airtable. I have created an interface, but I am struggling to figure out how to display alerts or message boxes to the user in the interface if they are open and not taking any actions for a certain interval (like five minutes). Ideally, I would like to display a help dialog where they can search for or see a link to another page. I don't know if this is possible, but I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could guide me.

That is not possible in Airtable.

However, you might be able to piece together a notification system by using external apps. I demonstrate how to send notifications from Airtable to your devices in this episode of the BuiltOnAir podcast.

If you need a database system that has that feature natively built into it, you can turn to FileMaker. I used to be a FileMaker Developer for almost 30 years before becoming an Airtable consultant. Feel free to reach out to me through my website if you'd like me to turn you onto some excellent FileMaker developers.
