Roadmap

make preview images last longer (currently they last 2 hours, but most messaging apps cache the image so it’s less relevant, except for slack)
make design better (feel free to submit feedback!)
add a /stats page for each share link so people can see more detail view statistics (if you want one for your current share link please email us- we can provide it ad-hoc to you!)
option to modify link previews

FAQ

Is my data sent to Airtable.com or Airtable.cool ?

Airtable.cool is purely just a wrapper/user interface addition to Airtable.com shared views. We wrap the airtable.com form in an iframe so that previews and link tracking works, but all the data is hosted on Airtable. If you are hosting an airtable.com form, all the data submitted via that form is sent to Airtable.com
 
Airtable.cool does not support shared views with passwords. Please remember that Airtable.cool / Airtable shared views without passwords are not protected and should not be used to store sensitive or personal information

What is Softr?

Softr is another extension on top of Airtable that allows you to build webportals easily. This project is unrelated to Softr- except that the creators of both are Airtable fans 🙂
We use the Softr restaurant template here since it is colorful, looks good, and has good sample data.
