What is Airtable?
Offered in SaaS mode, Airtable is a database tool that can be used to create a simple online form as well as a project management environment or even a custom CRM. Equipped with an automatic translation function, the tool manages multiple views: maps, calendars, Kanban boards, Gantt charts, etc.
Why do I need a Airtable account?
The Airtable add-on for Gravity Forms uses the Airtable API to link columns with fields and send data. Creating an account on Airtable is free. Once connected, you can get the API key on this page.
Do I have to pay to use the add-on and send emails?
The Contact Form 7 Airtable add-on is completly free.
Airtable offers a free plan for an unlimited number of databases and for small teams of up to 5 people. You will be able to add up to 1200 entries in each database and 2 GB of attachments.
Depending on your needs, several paid subscriptions allow you to unlock these limitations while giving access to more advanced features (see prices).
How are my columns and fields synchronized?
You don\’t have to do anything, the synchronization is automatic. Make sure you have created your databases and Airtable columns names before linking them to your form fields.
Why don\’t I get the Airtable column names in a drop-down list?
You must enter the names of your columns rather than choosing them from a list because once your fields are linked, if you want to modify, add or delete links, Airtable has a somewhat restrictive handling. We preferred to offer you this solution, more simple, more direct, more scalable and more malleable!
Which CF7 versions is it compatible with?
This add-on requires at least version 5.5.3 of Contact Form 7 and has recently been tested successfully up to version 5.6.
