You cannot create a “popup” in Airtable, but you can have a formula field that checks for errors in data entry. You can also have an automation check for errors and send message.

Thanks but I want a message for warning information, I don’t want another field table or a message in a mailbox. I want that a data entry the operator knows what he have to fill before an update.
I hope it’s more easy this explanation.

Hi, seems might be a way to do this as i have seen the popup , i also
came from vb prior and was simple.

hope it helps. i can assist if needed

It looks like you are seeing a pop-up from a custom extension. While it is possible for a custom extension to create a pop-up, it is. It a realistic solution for warnings when editing data in a grid view. The extension can only check for data changes when the extension itself is running, which only happens when it’s dashboard is open. Plus, it is very hard for the extension to determine what is valid data, especially given that warnings should not appear until after the user is done trying.
