Quick Setup

Account

First, create an account if you do not already have one. Make sure you have a site where you can edit the content.

Create a new record

To start receiving submissions from your site to your Airtable base, simply create a form. You can now copy an endpoint and paste it into an existing form on your site or copy the provided html sample.

If you have more than one site or even more than one form on the site you can create different form for each one. For example, if you have a contact form and a newsletter form, you would create two named forms contact and newsletter.

To better understand the endpoints and where to put them, see the Setting it up page.

NB: The name option for each input element must match with name of the field in your Airtable table.

Updating a record

When creating a new form for your Airtable table, you can enable the update record option, add the URL of the site that have the form you want your users to update. Also copy the form endpoint and paste it into the update form on your site, copy the JavaScript file and add it in the header of that HTML page and that's it. So whenever a new record is created with Beenform, a unique link will be sent to the user that created the record and clicking on the link will redirect them to the page that have the update form, and the fields in the form will be auto-populated with that user's information.

For the record update to work, the form and the Airtable base must have email field.

Website Integration

Beenform provides an HTTPS endpoint that will accept form data for each Airtable base and form. After you have created a form in Beenform, it will show you the code and the Beenform js to place on your website.
