I am trying to build a B2B application and I want to keep the logical separation of data between the two customers. Let's say I want to give the ability to my user from Business X customer to choose an employee name from drop down that should be relative to their business. When a user from Business Y clicks the drop down, he should only see the employee names from their own business and not for both Business X and Business Y (which seems to be the current case). It is a privacy issue. 

I can manage this manually by creating visibility filters on softr.io or having a separate view on airtable for each customer, but it is not scalable. Is there an easy way to manage that?

Unfortunately, that is not natively possible with Airtable.

You would need to set that up with an external portal tool, such as Noloco or Fillout. These are the only 2 apps that I currently know of that offer this functionality for Airtable.

Noloco is a powerful portal, and Fillout is free and offers the world’s most advanced forms for Airtable, including the dynamic/conditional dropdowns that you’re looking for. 

I gave a brief tutorial of Noloco on this episode of the BuiltOnAir podcast. And I also presented a full one-hour webinar on Noloco called Building a Client Portal on Noloco powered by Airtable.

I gave a brief demo of Fillout on this episode of the BuiltOnAir Podcast.

p.s. If you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant  to help you with any of this, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consulting — ScottWorld

Why is it not scalable? 👀
