If you’re looking for a powerful way to manage your data, you should consider integrating Bubble.io with Airtable. Bubble.io is a great online builder for creating and managing your own custom databases, while Airtable is an online spreadsheet that allows you to easily create and manage tables of information. When these two apps are integrated, it creates a powerful data management system that can help streamline your workflow. In this article, we will discuss the three main reasons why you should integrate Bubble.io with Airtable!

#2: Unlock Advanced Functions and Use Cases with Airtable

By integrating Bubble.io with Airtable, you can unlock a range of advanced use cases for your Airtable base.

In essence, you will be able to display your data in ways useful to you: graphs, custom tables and so on.

Connect that with Bubble workflows and you can create an automated system which, for example, sends updates to your key clients based on changes in their account status.

You can also supplement the data you have about clients in Bubble with data in Airtable[1].

Additionally, you can integrate other third-party services into your Bubble app for even more advanced functions.

#3: A Secure Way to Back Up the Database of Your Bubble App

One of the key benefits of integrating Bubble.io with Airtable is that it provides an extra layer of security for your data.

With Airtable, you can easily back up the database from your Bubble app and keep all of your data safe in case something goes wrong – no matter how large or small your app is! Plus, if you ever need to edit data for Bubble, it’s easy to do so directly within Airtable.

The Best Way to Integrate Bubble-Airtable

The best way to integrate Bubble.io and Airtable is this Bubble.io plugin called Bubble to Airtable Two-way Sync.

Just install the Two-way Sync plugin, input the Airtable API key and that will connect Airtable to your backend, with no code needed.

NOTE: Even though there is a ‘native’ Bubble-Airtable plugin available, it suffers from numerous issues such as slow loading speeds and API-related drawbacks, such as API throttling. These problems have been fixed in the Two-way Sync plugin.

Conclusion

Integrating Bubble.io with Airtable is a great way to manage your data and unlock powerful new use cases for your app.

With its intuitive interface and powerful search functions, it makes organizing data easier than ever before – plus, you get the added benefit of extra security for your database.
