Is there any way to generate a URL that will link to a specific record, ideally within a specific view? If not, PLEASE.
Our use case is the delegation of a given job. The record is the job ticket, and we need to quickly relay just that job. Via Slack, and a million other ways once integrated with Zapier.
Yes, this begs for a proper single-record view; the slippery-slope toward real print/PDF layouts. But let’s start at the URL level.
A formula like this might help:
'https://airtable.com/tblVs9ci2HK3Jm2Sf/viwP5mSQ2DqLmZH8f/' & RECORD_ID()
Grab the URL itself from the view that you want. You can do w/o view:
'https://airtable.com/tblVs9ci2HK3Jm2Sf/' & RECORD_ID()
A couple things now that I’ve had a sec to look at this:
I’d missed it because we try to use the “native” app. URLs (tho obviously valuable) are hidden.
Such links require the user to have access credentials. What we really need is a public, single-record link, in which we can control the visible fields.
