I did some searching but wanted to be certain since I’m still relatively new to the scripting block.
Does anyone know if there is a way to create new views?
My use case is that I currently manually create a suite of views each time I add a new client and/or project. For every project I will have an All view that shows everything about it, then an Open view that only shows stuff that’s currently being worked on, an Invoice view that gives me a summary of the tasks that need to be invoiced to make my invoicing faster, etc.
Currently I have template views that I duplicate and update the related filters to have it show the right records. I’d love to automate this with the scripting block, but I don’t see a way to create new views from script.
Am I missing something? Anyone else have any ideas?
I got the same questions, and a little more:
Thank you @Stephen_Suen & Script-Block team !
I hope these instructions will be added in a future evolution of Script-Block, in a not too distant future, because I’m tired of cloning my tables-templates by adapting Field-Names and Field-Types and Views by hand.
Thank you for your understanding,
Automating creating Views, Dashboards… that would be a dream.
At the moment I have to do this manually and it takes ages…
Please help me :pray:
Yes, I’m thinking it’s HUGE too
and some workaround I had considered by use of
doesn’t seems to help because Fields Props (field.description eg.) seem to stay Read-Only against any request and expectation…
This will be an awesome feature. Creating (and deleting and updating) tables, views and fields wold be a big game change.
Will give the opportuinty to programers to manage airtable in a more automated way.
One use case I wanted to do searching for this feature is to create a table to manage views and fields. I have a CRM with a lot of data, and a big headache is the management of a lot of fields and views with other team members if this part could be automated via this feature would be a big step on custom app creation via airtable.
In my case I wanted to create groups of data in a new table, so each group of data has it’s configuration, table relation and fields, so with automations would be able to create a self organizing groups of fields for my CRM.
is views.create / update / delete in the pipeline or in the making?
@Airtable teams, could you tell us about this feature indeed?
It would be super useful: the use case I’m stuck with is the dynamic creation of forms (generating forms with questions/descriptions based on input data). Well, ideally I would have like to use dynamic forms to deal with it, but since it doesn’t seem to be in the roadmap I was thinking of using a script to duplicate a template form and update some questions/descriptions to make that work.
Thank you for your help on this, and for this wonderful product!
