The Airtable team has kindly collected some of their favorite examples, both internally and from the community, to help demonstrate what's possible and give other script authors a place to get started fast.
Scripting lets you write short scripts to reduce time spent on repetitive tasks and uncover deeper insights with advanced queries and custom reporting.
Determine a list of duplicate records with custom logic to identify and merge duplicates
Determine a list of records that don't satisfy a custom constraint or validation rule (e.g. each person may only have up to 3 active tasks assigned to them)
For each record in a view, compute a value based on the other cells and write the result to an output field
Prompt the user for the name of a new project, then automatically create the relevant project and task records
We also have scripts available in the Marketplace that you can install directly into an Airtable base. If you're interested in submitting a script to be considered for inclusion in our Marketplace, read more here.
