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.

Really need this. Actually, now need to consider not using Airtable unless I find a workaround to collect input from clients.

This option is now available per the new Connected Apps announcement. That being said, still no info on if you have to pay for collaborators on Interface-Only view

@Josh_Brown I have just found this long-awaited feature! Thanks to the community Airtable team finally did it! It seems to be working fine - no access to the base. Now I must check if read-only collaborator costs additionally.

Read-only shouldn’t cost more. I will be testing this out soon tho. I did test adding comment collaborators and that does affect billing. Very, unfortunate as this would have made for a perfect customer portal, but not possible with the crazy additional cost for adding seats for customers.

I just tested this on my Pro Plan. If you invite a “Read only” collaborator to an Interface there is no additional billing/charges to your account. Per my previous reply, however, if you invite as a “Commenter” or “Editor” it will add the invitee as a paid collaborator to your account :confused:

Yep, I’ve tested too. As for commenters/editors, it was expected to be paid. Anyway, free read-only has already been a big deal. At least I do not need to search for an alternative dashboard solution.

I can’t see the option of only sharing read-only interface and not base? How does one do this?

Is your base part of a Pro or Enterprise workspace? This feature is not available in free and plus workspaces.

Hi - yes we have a Pro account.
