Creating a Staging Table for API

Did you mean: 

I have an Airtable which is a calendar schedule. I would like to use the API to apply this calendar to my website.

However, I don’t want it to be “hot.” In other words, I don’t want changes in the table to immediately populate the website, because there might be an error.

I’d like to have a staging environment for the API, that only changed when I approve what is in the Airtable, not in real time.

What is the best way to do this? Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the community, @Burke_Ingraffia! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: The easiest way to do this would be to add an “Approved” checkbox field. Create a view that only shows records that have been approved, and then only allow the API to publish those approved records. Or just embed that “Approved” view directly on the website.
