I’m managing a base and form that deals with product orders. Recently, I noticed that some fields were not previously on the form got added onto the form! Looking at the snapshots, this suddenly happened in the span of a day (where I did not access the form that much). The fields were metadata that only I should have access to, and as a result lost a fair bit of revenue. The most concerning thing at the moment is that I have no idea how this happened; for example with one of my bases, 6/8 of the additional metadata fields were added to my form (as opposed to all of them).
I was thinking it was a misclick, but I don’t see how I could have misclicked 6 times. It could have also been that I pressed “add all”, but only a subset of the fields were not added.
Do you have any ideas on how I can troubleshoot this so it never happens again?
EDIT: Some potential reasons?
- I have Zapier linked up with my airtable base, and it doesn’t explicitely do anything to the form, but will pay attention to triggers on certain fields.
- I have 12 Automations that will get triggered by each of those fields being changed. The triggers just send emails or change other field values though (nothing directly affecting the form).
