I have updated my Airtable connected Pages app to Pro to be able to test the inherited relationships from the Airtable Scheme without the narrow limits of the free version.
I have to confess that I feel quite confused about how to proceed to edit (is it possible?) the inherited relationships of Airtable and how to add or eliminate those relations. I also Don’t understand how Glide will be able to handle many to many relations, which in Airtable do not require an intermediate table. Many doubts about how it will eventually be possible to reconcile two database systems with so different foundations.
I am sure that Glide team is working hard to complete this announced integration, but what we have so far in this beta, for now, is little more than presenting data, including Airtable inherited relations. For now only simple fields can be edited, nor the relation fields or multi attachments ones.
Creating Glide inner relations and let Airtable serve as just a simple tables container would not be a solution because Airtable relations would be lost.
Will AirTable users see fulfilled our expectations? Or will this be an integration with limitations?
You mean that Airtable multi attachment & linked records edition will be supported prior to the official launch?. If not I think it would very confusing to potencial Airtable users while trying Glide as a premium front end for their data.
Open a Url, which is a concatenated formula, so I can just create a new column. it’s more the fact that is not showing up when uploading the table, if it could retrieve the data, it would avoid the duplication. no big deal.
No worries for the row limit, I can wait until Friday.
Regarding your conversation with darder, I just can agree with him, linked records edition fields would be a great feature to have.
Hi @Mark, is there a specific Airtable/ Glide dev roadmap I can see? I want to try Glide & Airtable, but need to know which features are stable, so I don’t work on/ deploy something to my client that isn’t quite ready yet.
Hi @Mark, I’ve spun up a test app - and it looks pretty cool so far…
However it’s missing a fundamental feature that I need… linked records and lookup fields.
That’s why I use Airtable - so I can have a list of areas in a table linked to an enquiry… And when my user loads a new enquiry, they need to be able to quickly add a list.
Please let me know when will this be available, so I can continue evaluating Glide as a solution for my client?
After trying Airtable connection both in Glide Apps & Pages I conclude that Glide Pages improvements as carrousel component must come hand by hand with the ability to edit Airtable links and multi attachment Airtable fields edition capabilities. The magic of Glide building beatiful and modern user oriented front ends and the power of Airtable as background data manager is a truly game changer.
While testing this beta integration I made use also of Glide tables in combination with Airtable synced ones so some of the data needed to make apps & Pages functional resides only in Glide.
