Welcome to BuiltOnAir, a podcast and video series about all things Airtable. Each episode, we talk with someone active in the Airtable community to discuss their experiences and showcase an interesting way they’ve used Airtable in their work.
On today’s episode of BuiltOnAir, we (digitally) travel overseas to chat with Jonathan Bowen. Jonathan is an Airtable developer and consultant boasting over 20 years of experience in technology, the past 13 of which have been focused on web apps and e-commerce development. His company, DragonDrop (a creative play on words – get it, drag and drop?), helps clients build Airtable bases to manage all sorts of workflows.
Jonathan was recently named a Community Leader in the Airtable Community forum, which means he has been recognized by the Airtable Staff for his outstanding contribution toward helping users get the most out of the product.
The first base Jonathan shares with us today is a multi-step onboarding process, in which he has combined Airtable, Zapier, and TypeForm to create a simple flow of information between the client and the base. The client receives an email with a list of steps to complete, and each step is linked to a TypeForm form. Jonathan demonstrates the creative way that he ensures the client’s information updates the correct record in Airtable.
Next, we dive into a project he recently completed for the Computer Museum of America, where he used the Airtable API to render data from a base onto a webpage, and export it as a PDF. Jonathan is currently working toward gearing this process more toward the general public, and plans to post on the Community Forum soon with step by step instructions.
