Step-by-Step Guide to Duplicating an Airtable Base

Published on Mar 30th, 2024

Duplicating an Airtable base can be incredibly handy, whether you're looking to create a backup, repurpose a complex table for another project, or share a template with someone else. Here's a simple guide to help you clone your Airtable in just a few steps.

Step 1: Open Your Base

Begin by navigating to the Airtable base you wish to duplicate. Make sure you're logged in to your account and have the necessary permissions to perform this action.

Step 2: Locate the Duplicate Option

With your base open, look for the 'Options' menu, which is typically indicated by three dots (⋮) in the upper right-hand corner of the base interface. Click on this menu to reveal additional options.

Step 3: Duplicate the Base

In the dropdown menu, select the 'Duplicate base' option. Airtable will then prompt you to confirm the duplication process. You’ll be able to choose whether to include records (the data within your tables) or just the base structure (the tables, views, and field configurations without the data).

Step 4: Name Your New Base and Complete the Duplication

After deciding what to include in the duplication, you'll need to give your new base a name. Enter the desired name in the provided field then select 'Duplicate base'. The process will initiate, and depending on the size of your base, it might take a few moments to complete.

Step 5: Access Your Duplicated Base

Once the duplication is complete, the new base will appear in your workspace. You can now access, modify, and share this duplicated base just like any other Airtable base.

Final Tips

  • Ensure your Airtable plan allows for the number of bases you need, as some plans have limitations on the number of bases you can create.

  • Use the duplication feature to create templates for repetitive tasks, which can save you time in the long run.
