I want a simple CRUD for my customers where they can create, read, update and delete records, including child records. What’s the best way of doing this, since form view does not allow the user to enter child records? 3rd party form integration?

Hi @Per_Carlen ,
Let’s consider https://miniextensions.com/ by @Moe .
TABLE / VIEW CRUD:
is what I expected but some other Extensions are satisfying particular needs:
I’m not only using miniExtensions for these CRUD useCases
but to get more from my records & field + their values.
Disclaimer: I’m not in Collaboration with miniExtensions.
This review shares my own user opinion.

Thanks! Does it support adding child records through forms?

If you mean Linked Records, a lot of Form Options about these exist in miniExtensions !
I did not yet try to add NEW linked RECs but linking to existing REC’s List
but it seemed to me I could add some new Linked RECs from FORMs options.
Maybe @Moe could explain deeper, thanks in advance.

Yes, I mean linked records.

I tried miniExtensions but it seem really difficult to set up.

I managed to set up a form and it does not support adding linked records.

Indeed I had to get used to it a little but from the third table, I played with it :slightly_smiling_face:
You have to start by setting the mandatory parameters to test if the “Model” gives the expected result.
Then you can add Options and testing them.
And finally you can polish the interface a bit, not as much as writing the CSS yourself, but it’s not bad at all !

I’m quite sure there is a FORM Extension to get this working !
But I didn’t try myself !
Aug 28, 2021 06:55 AM
I don’t so I’m afraid.

So there is no way of adding linked records to Airtable through forms?
Aug 28, 2021 11:52 AM
Really, there’s no way?

Last I checked there was no way to add linked records through AT’s native forms.
I use miniExtensions quite a bit. Feel free to private message me if you’d like help setting it up or have questions. I’d be happy to help. I remember how daunting it was for me when I was getting started.

Hi! Thanks for your reply and offer. I’ve been playing around with miniExtension a bit and you can indeed add linked records. However, I’ve concluded that I’ll stick with just using Airtable.
