I would like to share my base with others but several of the fields have the ability to be filtered. I would like for the people I am sharing the base with to be to filter the fields but not be able to change any of the information in the fields. Any suggestions on what options I need to select to accomplish this or is this possible to do?

Welcome to the community, @Kyle_Whitman!

Yes, that’s exactly what the sharing feature does. Just share the view with a private link.*

If you want to share the entire base instead of a particular view, you can invite the users as read-only collaborators.

*The only major catch for shared views is that your users will need to use a desktop or laptop computer in order to filter the fields. Airtable’s views do not work properly on mobile devices, because Airtable has completely neglected the mobile experience. I have no idea why, but mobile devices do not allow filtering, grouping, sorting, searching, nothing. If this is important to you, please email to request that they fix their mobile shared view.
