Good afternoon,

I created a duplicate copy of a database I use and excluded all the records. How can I now “send” that database to another person? Obviously, they would need their own Airtable account. I’m looking at the share options and a little confused. I won’t need any access to it upon sharing, I’m basically giving someone a copy of my empty database, for their usage.

In the share settings, select “Create a shared link to the whole base.” In the options that appear, select the second one:

You’ll see a dialog that now looks like this:

Copy that URL and share it with anyone you want. If they have an Airtable account and access that URL, they’ll see a link in the upper-right corner that says “Copy base”, which will let them copy the entire structure into a workspace of their choosing.

If you want to share the base with literally anyone, consider submitting it to the Airtable Universe. You’ll find a link for that in the top menu of your main workspace view.

Thanks. Just did that. I’ll see what they say now that I sent them the link.
