Airtable has revolutionized the way businesses organize data and collaborate on projects. Sharing your Airtable base is a straightforward process that can increase productivity and foster teamwork. Here's how you can share your Airtable base with others, whether they are team members, stakeholders, or external collaborators.

Step-by-Step Instructions to Share an Airtable Base

  1. Open the Base you Want to Share
    Navigate to the main screen of Airtable and open the base you wish to share.

  2. Click on the 'Share' Button
    In the upper right corner of your base, you will find the 'Share' button. Click it to access sharing options.

  3. Choose the Invite Option

You can invite people by email to join your base as collaborators. Enter their email addresses and select a permission level appropriate for each user:

  • Owner: Full permissions, including deletion and invite rights.

  • Creator: Can create and edit content but cannot delete the base or invite new users.

  • Editor: Can edit content but cannot change structural elements like fields or tables.

  • Commenter: Can only comment on records.

  • Read-only: Can view content without any editing rights.

  1. Adjusting Advanced Sharing Options
    If necessary, manage advanced options like disabling copying of the base, restricting access to a domain, or allowing link sharing to anyone with the link.

  2. Send the Invites
    Once everything is set up, click the 'Send invite' button. Your invitees will receive an email asking them to join your Airtable base.

  3. Shared Base Permissions and Access Management

Keep track of who has access to your base. You can always adjust permissions or revoke access by going back to the 'Share' button and managing the shared base settings.
