Just started using Airtable, seemed perfect for my use. Spent the morning importing some CSV tables, making some forms and views and a couple of Kanbans.
Great.
Except now it’s unusable all of a sudden. It can take several minutes to switch views. Sometimes it’s then come up with a an error like “File not found” or “resource unavailable”.

I really liked what I saw but it seems very flakey and unreliable. Is this normal?
There’s only about 350 records in my Base, so I can’t imagine I am at all taxing the technology.

Edit - also just noticed “Saving” after changes is taking a very long time. Eg, change the dropdown value selection in one field, and it took several seconds to save. Where as this morning everything saved in an instant.

Getting a permanent ‘loading’ or ‘trying to reconnect’ message across all of our spaces. Seemed to start happening around 8:50am EST.

I first heard of AirTable today in a news item from the BBC. I am guessing that many people have had the same idea as me and are trying it out for the first time causing some issues. I’ve signed up but i have no need to play with this right now so I am going to leave it for a while to ease the pressure for you existing users!.

I have a London client who is seeing multiple API failures for the past few hours. I tried to load one of their tables and it never finished.

Obvious service outage at the moment.
