Hello, we have a “Pro” plan for our bases. I have a base that has a table with 3 sync sources (all coming from other bases on the same Pro account). I’m planning to have at least 5 more syncs to take place for the same table and when I’m trying to add a fourth one, I get the error below. However,
Upgrade to add more sync sources
This table already has 3 sync sources. To add a new source to the table, contact your workspace owner to upgrade your plan

20 sources is for the Enterprise plan only, Pro is 3 sources the most.
You may create a “Tree structure” with different levels to extend the synchronization possibilities:
9 source tables → synchronize in blocs of 3 to 3 different tables → synchronize those 3 into a final table
it is not optimal but it works. When you have multiple sources there is a field that tells you where a record comes from, you will need two levels of these fields to use it in the final one.
As I said, it works. I found myself with the same problem in the Enterprise plan. I need to synchro more than 40 different sources, in the end I created that tree structure and it’s up and running
Hope this helps

Thanks for your reply!
Is it 3 sources per Table or Base? I’m able to create sources for other tables in the same base, still. Also, where is that limit defined in the pricing page? Airtable Pricing | Compare Plans, Features & Costs It says 10 Sync tables per base here

You can create as many as 10 synched tables in a base, and feed them with 3 sources at the most.
I haven’t seen this 3-sources limitation anywhere but when you start working, I don’t know if the details are available anywhere

This support article has more info about the limits.
This support article mentions daisy-chaining synced tables to overcome the source limits, as described by Xavier.

Thank you kuovonne,
I didn’t know about the article, I will take a look at it :slightly_smiling_face:
