How does Airtable compare to a database?
Airtable is an online database platform that you can access via a web browser or native mobile apps. When you first load Airtable it will present you with an Airtable Base. Think of an Airtable Base as a database that stores your data and content and the individual configurations of the Airtable workflow automation.
Each Airtable base (database) has tables, and tables can hold many fields. The base can be shared with individuals or teams and can have data saved to the base from Airtable automation, CSV files, online forms, or another developer platform.
Fields can be configured to have certain types of content saved, for example,, dates, URLs, files, or linked records. Linked records are a great way to build up a relational structure, allowing one Airtable base to be connected to another in minutes.
Automatically adding content via a form
Airtable Automation allows you to use the built-in form builder to create a custom form and publish it to the web. You might want to use this as a new customer intake form or internally to request information from another team. The Airtable platform uses its built-in form function to effortlessly allow non-developer personnel to add data to their Airtable base.
