As someone who uses both Airtable and Google Sheets for managing my data, I've often wished that there was an easy way to sync data between the two platforms. While there are some methods available, they often come with limitations, such as not being able to handle real-time syncing or only syncing in one direction.

In this post, I'll be sharing a guide on how to use Airtable automations to sync your data to Google Sheets, as well as sharing some details on a tool that I'm currently building that will make this process even easier.

Syncing Airtable to Google Sheets with Automations

If you're using Airtable and Google Sheets and want to sync data between the two, one option is to use Airtable automations. Here are the steps to set up this type of sync:

  1. In your Airtable base, click on "Automations" in the top corner of the screen.

  2. Click "New automation" and choose "When record updated" or "When record created" as the trigger.

  3. Set up the trigger details: Pick your table, make sure the View is Grid view and the fields that you want to update/create

  4. Create a new action and select the google sheets integration with the action "Append row"

  5. Set up the Actions configurations: Pick and login with your google sheets account, then select the spreadsheet and worksheet that you want to sync with

  6. Select the column that you want to sync the row data with. For example, if you have a Column called "To-dos" in your Google sheets, select the To do column and then the field that you want to sync it to in your base by pressing the "+" sign

  7. Test it to see if it works! That's it! Your Airtable data will now be automatically synced to your Google Sheets spreadsheet in real time.

A New Tool for Real-Time Syncing and More

If you're looking for a more robust solution, I'm excited to announce that I'm currently building a tool that will let you easily sync your Airtable data to Google Sheets, with features such as real-time syncing, bi-directional syncing, and custom field mapping. It is out this week!

While Airtable does have an automation feature that allows you to sync data to Google Sheets, it can be limited in terms of customization and real-time syncing. With my tool, you'll be able to set up custom syncing rules, handle real-time syncing, and both-ways syncing. By using this tool, you'll be able to save time and reduce the risk of errors by keeping your data in sync across both platforms.
