Hi,
I want to achieve the following:

  • I have manually entered lines (financial stock inventory). Each line having different colums (e.g. invest typ, notes, etc.)
  • For each line, I have a Unique identifier entered (it is the ISIN number to identify the relevant stock information)
  • I want now to add a column, where in each cell, a REST call to https://finnhub.io/ should be executed, getting and then displaying the corresponding value (e.g. year-to-date % change) for the ISIN number of this line entry.
    Is this possible to do in airtable? if yes, how can this be done?

thnks for any support!
Chris

Yep. You could use a script block or a script action. Both support external Capps to rest endpoints using fetch().
