I separate data into multiple bases for ease of use, and team-split.
However, I see Interfaces as a way to show data to the client (which could come from multiple bases).
I don’t like having to share multiple Interfaces.
Also, could Interfaces become a little bit as a customer login feature (as softr io allows)?

+1 on this.

I am setting this up for a client who has multiple bases - one for each client. But we want management to be able to see all the data across the board in the company in one view.

 @Lise_Rubarth you're still limited to the number of bases you can sync together, unless you're on the Enterprise plan which gives you unlimited syncs....

Also, even on Enterprise - I've found that even with automations running an action regularly to keep the syncs/base active, the numbers are very frequently out of date. I was hoping to set up a monthly digest type email, but am currently doing it manually, as the automated emails (based on the one base of synced data from multiple bases) were never accurate...

Would love this feature as well to combine different segments of our teams' workflows into one master interface. Right now if we sync a table from base A to base B to get it into B's interface, the comments added in B's interface to the record in B obviously don't translate to the record in base A. Hard to capture conversations across teams without giving everyone multiple interfaces.

Ah, yes we're on Enterprise plan. Thanks for pointing that out! 🙂 

FYI, if you use Softr, you can easily connect it multiple  Airtable databases and build your workflow around there.

It is SOO easy to set up and integrate. 

I HIGHLY recommend it.

@Irit_Levi I know about Softr but recently came across AeroPage. It looks so much more robust. Have you tried it?
