Airtable

Who can use this feature?

👤  Available on all plans.

You can use data from Airtable to power your Stacker apps.

Prepare your Airtable Base

Make sure that you have fields for both the user's name, and also their email address in the table, to power the permissions system. 
 
It isn't necessary to have a user table in your data source to set up your Stacker app; you can also add users individually in Stacker. You can create links between users and data directly in Stacker too.
