I have a base for many social accounts. I created a column in the base for emails. Records will have multiple email addresses (that I want to put inside the field for a record thats being created) for the main email providers - Google, Yahoo, Outlook, Webmail. Is there a way have many fields inside the cell labeled with the email providers (label1: Google label2: Yahoo, etc.) that I can input the email address for the record?

The only way I see how to do this is to use the long text field type and just type everything in it. Please see snaapshot.

The cleanest way to do this is to have a separate column for each and if you want to see them concatenated, use a formula field to do so. You can then hide the source columns. From a form input perspective, I would recommend using fillout.com integration. It is truly an astoundingly good tool and works wonders for Airtable's missing features such as signatures and updates. You could have a a checklist of social sites and then selectively show only the questions that correspond to selected sites. Alternatively, you could use a regular expression to constrain entry to a comma separated list of emails. Chat gpt says this will work: /^(\s*[\w.-]+@[a-zA-Z\d.-]+\.[a-zA-Z]{2,}\s*(?:,\s*\s*[\w.-]+@[a-zA-Z\d.-]+\.[a-zA-Z]{2,}\s*)*)$/ I have not tried it.
