Just curious if anyone here uses a form on a website as a contact submission form. Do you have a problem with spam entries? I’m thinking of replacing my contact form with an embedded Airtable form.

I haven’t tried using an Airtable form as a site’s contact form, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Form spam can be a massive headache, and there are dedicated web tools for handling it. Airtable’s forms don’t have that kind of functionality, so you’d likely be opening yourself up to lots of spam if you used one for that purpose.

I do use it but at the moment have not come across any spam.

If you are getting spammed, we’ve built a form for Airtable that supports CAPTCHA for human verification.

If you are using Zapier + Airtable then you could add OOPSpam app in your flow.

An example flow:
New Record Airtable -> OOPSpam -> Insert Record Airtable (or Send Outbound Email).
