I have used scripts a lot in the Automations pannel. However, I'd like to create more user friendly experiences using the Script Extension.
Upon creating my system, it appears that buttons that trigger script extensions can not be run from an Airtable interface. Can anyone confirm that? Is there a way to create better experiences directly in the interface pannel by allowing users to follow a set of actions as defined in those scripts? Can it only be run from the data pannel?

From an interface, you can trigger an Airtable automation. Airtable’s automations have the ability to run certain types of scripts.
1. Write a custom script inside your Airtable automation that communicates directly with 0CodeKit. Be careful with this method, because Airtable’s automation scripts have a maximum time limit on how long they can run (and it is a very low amount of time).
There is a small learning curve with Make, which is why I created this basic navigation video to help. I also provide the links to a few other Make training resources there as well. For example, as I mentioned above, to instantly trigger your Make scenarios from Airtable, check out this thread.
p.s. If you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you with any of this, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consulting — ScottWorld
