I’m trying to duplicate a row via a mobile device (iOS). I noticed there wasn’t a way to do it explicitly through the interface, however, I am looking at implementing a workaround via a button which calls a script. This being said, is there a way to duplicate the current record verbatim via a script?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unfortunately, duplicating rows is one of the (many) missing features from the mobile app. The full Airtable experience is only available from the desktop web app.
I would recommend adding this as a feature suggestion in the #show-and-tell:product-suggestions category.
One workaround would be to use Airtable’s automations or Integromat’s automations to create a new record for you with certain values in your new record pre-filled from your original record — as soon as you check a checkbox (or make some type of selection) in one of your original record’s fields.
You can’t automate a simple duplication of your existing record, but you could automate creating a new record that carries over values from your original record.
Note that Integromat supports more field types & more functionality than Airtable’s automations, so they might be your best bet.
