Hello, I just signed up for the business plan and as it says in the plan (photo attached), it says unlimited editors. I have created an app that collects feedback through a form so I need many external people to be able to edit the form. Is there a way to do it without being charged on the invoice for each user who edits (the option to do it through a form link does not exist, I need to be able to edit the interface, not the data).

It is not possible for free users to edit record data on the Business plan. It is possible for free users to fill out a form view (or an interface public form, but not an interface-only form). You can then use automations to edit existing records based on the info in the new record that is created by the form. (In Airtable a form always creates a new record, it does not edit existing records.)

If you need multiple people to edit existing data, you may want to look into using a portal service. I list some portal services here.

Additionally, Fillout is free, and lets users update Airtable records directly from a form.

Nice article, @kuovonne! I really like using Noloco and JetAdmin for my portals — and I am currently using them with several of my Airtable consulting clients — but those are not currently on your list.

Also, Fillout can sort of be seen as a "lite portal"... it's not a "full portal", but can be used as a mini-portal in many circumstances.
