Airtable and public views

imagesOne of the cool recent discoveries that I have made with Airtable is that you can publish and share selected information easily through sharing a view and embedding it or linking it on other sites. What this means for me is that finally I have an easy way to create a list of upcoming choir anthems with recording samples, YouTube links, and publisher links and share that with my choir members so that they can review the music during the week or see what anthems are coming up next. Very cool!

I am also using the ability to password protect pages on our church website in order to share a basic choir directory (with information from Airtable) with just our choir members. And with AirTable’s recent gallery view, this could become a very easy way for folks to learn names and faces when they are new.

The ongoing weakness with Airtable is its printing – still very basic and honestly, only barely useful. Maybe this will be fixed in the future… but for now I am still having to rely on CSV exports to be able to do fancy printing when needed. Thankfully, that’s not very often.
