Hi there! We’ve run into some roadblocks using airtable’s csv import block, and since we don’t have anyone well-versed in javascript on our teamvwe’ve come here looking for someone interested in this one-time project.

We need to regularly import csv’s and have this app update existing records and create new records. All records have a unique identifier field (“RefID”), however it’s a calculated field (concatenation of a text field and the record ID). This is where the csv import block wouldn’t work, and we’re hoping this is something that can be “coded around” rather than simply being impossible!

CSV’s to be imported will either have a “RefID” value matching an existing one or no value at all. If they match, then certain specific fields in the existing record should be updated with values from the csv (not fields that would impact the RefID value), and if there is no match a new record should be created.

Ideally this would work with short and long text, single select, numerical, and linked field types (linking to existing records in another table, or creating a new one).

Let us know if this sounds doable for you! Thanks

Hello Nicholas,

I hope you’re having a great day!

I’d be happy to discuss some ideas with you, as well as getting a better understanding of how the Airtable will be an asset to your team and business. I’m very versed in working with CSV’s and have done so with many companies in the past. As a full time freelancer based in the U.S., I am very familiar with Airtable, Web Design, Zapier / Automations, Digital marketing and other online software.

Once we’ve discussed your vision and goals, I can then provide you an accurate price and timeframe to get the project started!
