This Product Ideas board is currently undergoing updates, but please continue to submit your ideas.
It seems that filepicker.io has gone defunct, and is no longer a viable option for an in-app file-selection API. @Airtable, please update your file-selection to use a more updated API, device native API’s, or else a custom solution that meets users needs on Android and iOS (and the upcoming iPadOS).
It’s now basically impossible to upload a PDF (as a PDF) to a record’s Attachment field in Airtable on an iOS device, which is pretty frustrating.
I agree the mobile file upload experience could be improved.
I’m an Android user, and I use Airtable to track my apartment hunt. I take photos of each place I visit, but its a headache adding them to my base on mobile because you have to add them one by one.
I’d like to see the improvements asked for by @Jeremy_Oglesby, in addition to bulk file upload for all mobile app users.
Totally agree. This shouldn’t have to be a feature request. Unfathomable that Airtable doesn’t have access to the file app.
There should be an option to upload videos from mobile. File renaming settings should be available.
Woohoo :tada: :partying_face:
Thank you, @Airtable !
iOS users can now upload local PDF’s and other file types from the Files app.
@Jeremy_Oglesby I know your request was specifically for IOS, but this doesn’t appear to be a feature in Android yet. Its only half a solution.
@Airtable any plans on adding the feature to Android? Non-IOS users always seem to play second-fiddle when it comes to mobile app updates.
