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?

hi @nino_regala,

Not (yet) a Programmatic Views Manager by Airtable,
but I could hope both these posts will help:

Not yet tried: I’ve first to play with REACT.js and that’s what I’m doing now.


Hey this great!,
is views.create / update / delete in the pipeline or in the making?
Many are looking forward to have this option - as it will be HUGE.

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.

@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!

Yes I need it too. At least allow us to create view based on automation.

E.g. when it is the first day of the month, new view for that month will be created.
