Hi, currently Zapier can only connect to Airtable via an API Key per https://help.zapier.com/hc/en-us/articles/8495995404173-How-to-Get-Started-with-Airtable-on-Zapier

Is it the Airtable dev team's responsibility to update their integration with Zapier, to make use of personal access tokens or the new oauth mechanism?

Or, can someone on the dev team prompt Zapier to do it?

@HolocodeThe new PAT and OAuth method is causing quite a bit of chaos. I've attempted to fix my integrations without success, and after contacting the relevant companies, it's apparent that they're aware of the changes but not yet prepared. As a result, everyone is scrambling to catch up. My main concern is that the new restrictions may increase my expenses in some of my third-party apps, which is disheartening. It would be preferable if Airtable could either catch up so that we wouldn't need to use third-party integrations or avoid implementing barriers that prevent us from using them. I'm feeling frustrated at the moment, but we have time to adapt as this is a phased rollout. Hopefully, everyone will eventually catch up.

Yep, I'm a little worried about this as well. We have quite a few automations set up through third parties and if all of the authentications break... well, that's really bad.
