How Do I Embed an Airtable in Webflow?

Embedding an Airtable in Webflow is a great way to add dynamic and interactive content to your website. With the power of Airtable’s database and Webflow’s design capabilities, you can create custom tables and display them seamlessly on your site. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of embedding an Airtable in Webflow.

Step 1: Create a Table in Airtable

To get started, you’ll need to have an Airtable account. If you don’t have one, go ahead and sign up for free.

Once you’re logged in, create a new base and add a table. You can name the table anything you like and define the fields based on your requirements.

Step 2: Populate Your Table with Data

After creating your table, it’s time to populate it with data. Each row represents a record or item, while each column represents a field or attribute of that item.

You can enter data manually or import it from a CSV file. Make sure your data is accurate and complete before proceeding.

Step 3: Share Your Table

Now that your table is ready, it’s time to make it accessible to your Webflow project. In Airtable, click on the “Share” button located at the top right corner of your table. A modal will appear with sharing options.

  • Public Website: This option allows anyone with the link to view your table without authentication.
  • Password Protected: With this option, you can set a password for accessing your table.
  • Restricted View: This option lets you restrict certain fields from being visible.

Select the option that suits your needs best. For the purpose of embedding in Webflow, the “Public Website” option is recommended.

Step 4: Grab the Embed Code

After choosing the sharing option, Airtable will provide you with an embed code. Click on the “Copy embed code” button to save it to your clipboard. This code contains all the necessary HTML and CSS to display your table correctly.

Step 5: Embed Airtable in Webflow

Now it’s time to integrate Airtable into your Webflow project. Open your Webflow project in the Designer and navigate to the page where you want to embed the table.

In Webflow, create a new HTML embed element by dragging and dropping an HTML embed component from the Add panel onto your page.

Note: If you’re using a CMS collection, make sure to add a collection list wrapper before adding the HTML embed element.

Paste the previously copied Airtable embed code into the HTML embed element. You can modify its height, width, or any other styling attributes according to your design requirements.

Step 6: Publish Your Webflow Project

Once you’ve embedded Airtable into your page, make sure to save and publish your project for changes to take effect on your live site. Preview and test it thoroughly on different devices and browsers to ensure everything works as expected.

You’re All Set!

Congratulations! You’ve successfully embedded an Airtable in Webflow.

Now, anyone who visits your website will be able to view and interact with your table effortlessly. Remember, you can always update or modify your Airtable data, and it will reflect automatically on your embedded table within Webflow.
