Troubleshooting

Make sure you have created your databases and Airtable columns names before adding a new connection. If you don’t see it, wait 1 minute. For performance reasons, your Airtable elements are cached for one minute.
If you don’t see your Airtable data, make sure your column names are perfectly identical between WordPress and Airtable (names are case sensitive).
If needed, you can access to logs from a FTP server in this folder: /wp-content/uploads/airwpsync-logs

FAQ

What is Airtable?

Offered in SaaS mode, Airtable is a database tool designed to create a simple online form and a project management environment or even a custom CRM. Equipped with an automatic translation function, Airtable manages multiple views: maps, calendars, Kanban boards, Gantt charts, etc.

Why do I need an Airtable account?

Air WP Sync plugin 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 plugin and Airtable?

For the time being, the only version of the plugin available is free. Our Pro Version will soon be available (be informed here) to unleash advanced features.
Airtable offers a free plan for an unlimited number of databases and small teams of up to 5 people. You can add up to 1,200 entries in each database and 2GB of attachments.
Depending on your needs, several paid subscriptions allow you to unlock these limitations while accessing more advanced features (see prices).

How are my databases synchronized?

Once you have defined the synchronization frequency and published your connection, relax: everything is automatic. It is also possible to manually synchronize the connection – whenever you want – using the ‘Sync Now’ button.

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!
