Welcome to Airtable’s Community! We’ve outlined tips and tricks to ensure you are set up for success, connect with other members, contribute to the conversations and get the most out of the platform. We will continue to update this post with new learnings!

First things first, register with the community! 

If you are going to be a frequent visitor or active contributor, we highly recommend you register. This account will be tied to your Airtable account. Once you are registered, you can take full advantage of what the community has to offer. You will be able to:

  • Post new messages and reply to other members' posts
  • Receive emails when someone responds to a specific post or topic
  • Exchange private messages with other members
  • Personalize your community experience
  • Post comments on blogs that don't allow anonymous comments
  • Post ideas, vote on the ideas you like best, and post comments

If you aren’t a registered member, you can only browse, search for information and read posts. Lastly, you won’t be able to participate in the fun stuff like giving kudos, voting on new ideas, engaging with other members and customizing your preferences. 

So let’s get you registered! 

  1. Click register located on the upper right hand corner. You will find it beneath the search bar of the welcome banner.
  2. Follow the prompts.
  3. Check your email for a confirmation email and click the activation link. 

It’s important to note:

  • This account will be tied to your Airtable account. 
  • You must have cookies enabled in your browser to register and to sign in the community.
  • You must validate the email address to have their community account fully registered. Until you validate the email address via the link provided in the confirmation email, you are only partially registered.

If you have any questions about registering, signing in, or accessing content in the community, reach out to us community@airtable.com
