1. Add a homepage table in the base
In order to create a homepage, you need a table to work as the foundation. This table only needs a single record and only one field is required. Remember to run an Airtable update in your app and enabled the new field.
2. Add a Header
In the app, navigate to the homepage table. Open the layout editor and select 'Header'. Add a title, description and an image.
3. Set the 'display' type to 'one-record-only'
4. Add widgets to the homepage
Drag and drop widgets onto the page and customize the homepage to your preference.
Tips & tricks:
Use a highlight widget at the top of the page (using the 'welcome to' field).
Use banner widgets as text containers with additional information. These are easy to add/use since they don't require any fields. If you'd like to add additional links or resources, use banner buttons to link to pages within the app or external sites.
Use the embed widget to add maps, videos, and other features.
Display important records from other tables using record lists.
Toggle the 'edit' button off in layout editor > 'page buttons'.
In the layout editor > roles, make sure the homepage is configured to all access to 'all roles'.
Make sure all roles have permission to access 'all records' in the homepage table.
In App Settings > Navigation, make sure that the homepage appears at the top of the list.
