6 new apps to streamline your workflow


Earlier this year, we launched Marketplace, a place to share and explore Apps built by Airtable’s growing community. Learn more about the six latest apps to join the marketplace, and how you can leverage them in your workflow.

In September, we introduced Marketplace, a place to discover new Airtable Apps created by the community. A set of building blocks built for creators, by creators, apps are designed to enhance the way you work in Airtable.

To help streamline your workflows, we’re excited to share the six latest apps to enter the Marketplace. Spanning a number of powerful uses—from form power-ups to in-base shortcuts—these new apps are designed to amplify and enrich your existing workflows.

Here’s what’s new:

1. Batch export attachments from multiple records with Bulk Download Attachments

Developer: miniExtensions

You can now compile and export all attachments from multiple records with one click using Bulk Download Attachments. Define the attachment field you want to download, and filter by view before downloading the attachments in one pass.    

Bulk Download Attachments also gives you the option to rename attachment files based on another field in the same record. With this functionality, you can rename attachments en masse while you download, making it easy to associate downloaded attachments to the records in your base.

2. Automate QR code creation using the QR Code Generator app

Developer: Little Appy Co

Generate high volumes of QR codes with a few clicks using the QR Code Generator app. Based on existing records in your base, QR Code Generator creates unique QR codes for the record(s) of your choice, adding them to your base in the form of attachments. Each QR code it generates is automatically associated with the record it’s sourced from.

“It’s most helpful for generating QR codes for inventory and asset management databases,” says Little Appy Co, the developers who built the app. “But it’s not specific to those use cases. It can really be used with any dataset that you want to generate a QR code for.”

And in the midst of COVID-19, QR codes are especially beneficial for brick and mortar businesses. Reports show that businesses are increasingly reliant on QR codes to keep customer interactions safe and touchless.

3. Pre-populate forms using the Formula for a Prefilled Form app

Developer: Kuovonne V.

“Prefilled forms can save time and improve accuracy, but manually building the URLs for prefilled forms can be tedious and subject to typos,” says Kuovonne, creator of the app. “This app creates a formula that you can place in a table to generate a unique prefilled URL for each record using the values in that record.”

Using prefill parameters in the URL of your form, you can fill in a subset of your fields. Based on prefill parameters, The Formula for a Prefilled Form app makes it even easier to generate form prefill links.  

Say, for example, that you want a customer to fill out an evaluation form. You already have information like the customer name, or their account details. “You can use this app to build the formula field that will generate that prefilled URL,” Kuovonne says. “That prefilled URL can then be used in an email to the customer, who will be redirected to the pre-filled form.”
