Hi all

I'm trying to make a URL to link directly to show just images in an attachment field.

I've created a shared view, and am happy making a formula which replaces the record ID to the correct record but I can't get the attachment ID programatically.  If I omit it from the URL (ie airtable.com/appXXX/shrXXX/tblXXX/viwXX/recXXX/fldXX/ then it directs the user to the full record page - I just want them to see the attachments so need the "att" ID

Any ideas?

Hope that makes sense!

Andrew

Hi Andrew, you can only get the expiring URL to the attachment itself by using an Airtable automation or by using the Airtable API (such as using Make’s Airtable automations & integrations). Note that the URL will expire after 2 hours.
