Airtable view sync

Sync specific views in Airtable
Airtable views are filtered subsets of the data in your Airtable tables. You can use Airtable views to filter, organize, and better manage your data.
With our Airtable view sync, you can choose which specific views you want to sync instead of syncing your entire table.
For example, imagine you're using Whalesync to sync blog content from Airtable to Webflow. Instead of syncing all your blog posts, you may only want to sync blog posts that are ready to be published. With this feature, you can create a "Publish" view in Airtable and only sync the blog posts in that "Publish" view to Webflow.

How to use Airtable view sync

When you're linking tables, choose the Airtable view you'd like to sync. If you don't want to sync a specific view, the dropdown defaults to syncing the entire table.

Limitations

To delete records from your live site, Webflow requires a re-publish Removing records from an Airtable view will delete them from Webflow BUT you will need to re-publish your Webflow site in order to see those deletes propogate to your live site. This is different from adding records to an Airtable view as newly added records will be published live to your site automatically.
Webflow gives an error if you remove a record from a synced view and add it back To fix this, just republish your Webflow site and the error should go away.
If you link to a record, that record must be in a synced view Whalesync can only sync a linked record if it is being synced from it's original table.
These limitations can be a little tricky. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
