Continue following the flow to grant access to Stacker. We suggest you pick All current and future bases in all current and future workspaces in the dropdown, so that you do not have to go through the full upgrade flow for future data connections. After granting access you will be redirected to Stacker.

It is important to avoid regenerating the sharing link, this will break the connection between Airtable and Stacker.

 

Troubleshooting

  • Airtable Domain Restrictions are not supported. Restricting access to an email domain will not allow you to sync your Airtable base to Stacker. 
  • To connect to Airtable your role must be Creator for workspace.
  • Airtable editing permissions (table/field) are not supported. "Editors and up" is required for Stacker to be able to create/modify data:Airtable-editing-permissions.png
