In a long text field is there a way to create a global entry text for some headings so that whenever I want to enter new content i don't have to enter the headings as well?  For example, the headings I use are:

VOA ITZA
VOA Total sqft
ML ITZA
ML Total sqft
LA ITZA
TA ITZA

You could solve this with an automation maybe?  Trigger it every time a new record is created and update your long text field with the following:

**VOA ITZA**

**VOA Total sqft** 

**ML ITZA** 

**ML Total sqft** 

**LA ITZA** 

**TA ITZA**

i have never used an automation so will try, thank you.

(My solution is to use Textexpander)

 

In automations:

Trigger = When a record matches conditions

When [FieldName] ---  [is] - or [is exactly]*   ---  [one of the items you named : ex VOA ITZA]

Action : Update record

Record ID : click the plus sign and "Airtable Record ID" from the previous step

Update record : using specific fields

Select the field you want the automation to fill.

Write what you want VOA ITZA to be replaced for.

Repeat for each of the items you enumerated. And voilà !  

[*] depending on the type of field it is, the choices will differ.
