I tried using interface designer and it is a very cool feature. One thing I would suggest to have is a sharing the interface like a view. For example, I would like to share particular interface in read only mode and do not want the user to be able to go and see all contents of the base. Currently, if I give read-only permissions the user can go and see all tables in the base.

Agreed - by far the best option for presenting Airtable in a Dashboard format, especially for those who need fresh data, but it is undercut a little by the need to give people collaborator status and access to the database as a whole (even if it is read only).

As a side note, shared views could be accessed via Mobile… since no equivalent is available for interfaces this means that Mobile access, even for viewing the interface, is completely non-existent.

YESSS!!! It is a bummer that interface designer page can be shared only to limited group of people because of data security issue…

I’m looking forward to Airtable team changing this!

I agree. For example, I have an HR database that captures the salary, benefits, and vacation data for all our employees. I want to send each employee a shared (read-only) link to only their collection of interfaces that filters on their names. Obviously, we would not want any employee to be able to get access (even read-only) to any other employee’s information. In its current form, the entire Interfaces feature is useless to me until we can restrict access based on filters.

Bumping this! Love the feature, but unfortunately it isn’t very useful to me until i can share with anyone (not just base members) via a link.

I agree, yes, but the minimum viable product has to be viable. This is really polished in some ways, but IMO, it’s effectively useless for anything other than a personal dashboard to occasionally look at for fun.

I was really excited after publishing, and then immediately disappointed when I realized I can’t share it with any of my customers.

Nice idea, but not quite useful.

To add to this, I’d like the option to turn off the ability for a user to share the interface. I was trying to set up an application review workflow and don’t want everyone who can access this interface to be able to share candidate information with anyone else.

Yes please I need this feature too. Bumping this up the chain. I spent a long time making custom interfaces without realising you can’t limit them using the URL links, as with views. Please add this as an upgrade airtable :slightly_smiling_face:

Same here. Love the feature, but total waste of time if I can’t share with a link.

Can Airtable give us a timeline on the beta and on this feature?
