[00:01:40] Welcome to the BuiltOnAir podcast.
[00:01:43] Season 11. Episode we episode I think this
[00:01:48] is wrong, I think we're actually
[00:01:50] episode 10 because we skipped last week.
[00:01:53] So I have the wrong,
[00:01:55] have the wrong thing,
[00:01:56] I forgot to adjust the date on that.
[00:01:58] So we are episode 10
[00:02:00] because we're off last week
[00:02:02] due to the holiday,
[00:02:03] and other circumstances
[00:02:05] and so good to be back
[00:02:07] with everybody myself,
[00:02:09] Dan Fellars and Kamille Parks with us.
[00:02:12] Hello Kamille,
[00:02:14] good to see you again.
[00:02:16] Alli couldn't make it this week,
[00:02:18] but we'll be joined
[00:02:19] shortly by Rebecca Elam
[00:02:21] who has been on the show before
[00:02:23] and friend of the show
[00:02:25] and she'll be with us shortly.
[00:02:27] So good to have everyone with us again.
[00:02:30] We've got an exciting show for us.
[00:02:32] I'll walk through what we're going to be
[00:02:34] talking about today.
[00:02:36] As always, the BuiltOnAir podcast
[00:02:39] is a weekly live show
[00:02:40] will go through a couple
[00:02:42] of different segments.
[00:02:43] We always start with our Round the Bases,
[00:02:46] talking about what's new,
[00:02:47] what's going on in the different
[00:02:48] communities,
[00:02:49] lots of new features
[00:02:50] we're gonna be showcasing today from
[00:02:53] Airtable,
[00:02:53] then we'll do a spotlight on On2Air
[00:02:56] our primary sponsor
[00:02:57] and then Rebecca will be showcasing a base
[00:03:01] that she's built for her company to
[00:03:03] do manual app testing
[00:03:05] and then a quick shout out
[00:03:07] to our community and how you
[00:03:09] can join
[00:03:10] and then we'll end with Kamille
[00:03:12] doing showcasing how she built her
[00:03:14] website using Glide apps and Airtable
[00:03:18] and we're just gonna do those
[00:03:20] two segments today because I think they'll
[00:03:22] be quite extensive
[00:03:24] and there's also quite a few things
[00:03:28] to talk about in the
[00:03:29] roundup. So with that
[00:03:31] we're gonna start with
[00:03:33] the latest greatest hot off the
[00:03:34] press feature announcement
[00:03:37] from Airtable.
[00:03:38] And this was first spotted
[00:03:40] as far as I'm aware in the
[00:03:42] BuiltOnAir community
[00:03:43] shout out to Russell Bishop
[00:03:45] who posted this screenshot.
[00:03:48] This is off of a field.
[00:03:50] So if you look at the
[00:03:51] drop down off of a field,
[00:03:53] you'll see a new menu item
[00:03:56] called show dependencies
[00:03:58] and Russell I believe is
[00:04:00] in an enterprise account
[00:04:02] because this functionality
[00:04:04] right here is actually only
[00:04:06] available to
[00:04:09] enterprise bases
[00:04:11] as far as showing
[00:04:12] all of the dependencies. But
[00:04:15] Jonathan pointed out
[00:04:17] that there's another feature
[00:04:19] that is at the table level.
[00:04:20] So if you click on the table level,
[00:04:23] you'll now see a managed fields
[00:04:25] and I'm gonna show you
[00:04:27] that this is available
[00:04:29] on more than just the
[00:04:31] actually I'm on a pro plan with this base.
[00:04:35] I didn't check to see
[00:04:36] if it's on free or not.
[00:04:38] But now if you click on this
[00:04:40] manage
[00:04:41] field, you get this menu and I'm gonna add
[00:04:43] Rebecca, who's now with us.
[00:04:45] Welcome Rebecca
[00:04:47] just talking about some new
[00:04:48] functionality that just came out today.
[00:04:51] And so now you can see
[00:04:53] all of the fields in the table,
[00:04:56] you can actually click on
[00:04:58] any of them and rename them.
[00:05:00] All right in the same interface,
[00:05:02] you can change the field types,
[00:05:05] you can change
[00:05:07] add descriptions to all of them
[00:05:10] and change the permissions
[00:05:12] and then it shows the dependencies,
[00:05:14] but if you click on this,
[00:05:16] it does require upgrade
[00:05:18] to enterprise to see all of
[00:05:20] this or to interact with it
[00:05:22] and jump to it although
[00:05:23] it does show it grayed out
[00:05:25] so you can't see some things of it.
[00:05:28] So this is pretty cool.
[00:05:30] It seems like it's still useful.
[00:05:32] I think if you have enterprise,
[00:05:33] it'll probably let you click on it
[00:05:35] to jump to that automation or jump to that
[00:05:37] interface,
[00:05:38] but if you have a lower plan,
[00:05:40] you could still like at least see it
[00:05:42] listed.
[00:05:45] And that that's super helpful.
[00:05:47] They have that marker for primary fields
[00:05:50] just so that, you know,
[00:05:53] Obviously my brain already is like
[00:05:55] what if it lets you do this and
[00:05:57] what if it lets you do that?
[00:05:59] It's been out for like
[00:06:01] roughly what an hour,
[00:06:02] so. I'll cool my jets.
[00:06:04] But yeah, you could
[00:06:05] add a new field from here.
[00:06:07] Can you configure a field from here?
[00:06:10] Like if you wanted to change
[00:06:11] a field?
[00:06:14] Like if it's
[00:06:15] Oh yeah, you can. All right, cool.
[00:06:19] Yeah, so you can click there.
[00:06:21] It's also got a menu here
[00:06:22] to kind of the standard
[00:06:23] drop down
[00:06:27] That one you can't delete
[00:06:29] others you can delete
[00:06:30] through the menu here,
[00:06:31] careful on that.
[00:06:32] If you start selecting fields
[00:06:35] on the left with those check
[00:06:36] boxes, can you bulk change stuff?
[00:06:40] You can
[00:06:42] you can you can if it's
[00:06:46] need permissions
[00:06:49] okay if you select two fields
[00:06:52] of the same type
[00:06:54] so click two date fields or
[00:06:56] something.
[00:06:58] Here's two buttons.
[00:07:05] You even changed because
[00:07:07] those are both not permission-able.
[00:07:11] Okay. So like I wanna see,
[00:07:13] do you have more than one
[00:07:16] of an editable type?
[00:07:18] Like if there's two dates or two numbers?
[00:07:28] Okay.
[00:07:32] Get rid of the stick
[00:07:35] because I know precisely
[00:07:37] what I wanted to do
[00:07:39] and I don't know if we could test
[00:07:41] it in here. So
[00:07:43] what I wanted to do
[00:07:45] is if you have two
[00:07:46] or more fields selected of the same type.
[00:07:49] I would want a button that says
[00:07:51] alright, you selected two date fields,
[00:07:54] edit the configuration for both of those
[00:07:56] date fields
[00:07:57] and change the formatting to,
[00:08:00] you know, European or American
[00:08:02] standard or you know whatever
[00:08:04] or ISO format like I want to do that here.
[00:08:08] Yeah. Yeah. I would have been
[00:08:12] shocked if that was there
[00:08:14] because URLs
[00:08:15] don't have settings that you could apply
[00:08:20] options. Yeah. Well now
[00:08:24] now I must test
[00:08:25] because you would think that
[00:08:27] if they had it for bulk that they
[00:08:29] would have it for one.
[00:08:32] Right?
[00:08:33] Well I guess they do
[00:08:35] if you click it. Yeah,
[00:08:37] I would I would be shocked if
[00:08:41] Oh jeez
[00:08:42] that was there
[00:08:44] anyway. It's very very cool.
[00:08:47] Yeah.
[00:08:48] Wait before you do anything,
[00:08:52] do you have the,
[00:08:54] the toggle at the
[00:08:55] underneath add new field,
[00:08:57] click that thingy
[00:09:00] at the top
[00:09:01] in the gray bar to that new field
[00:09:03] underneath that
[00:09:07] underneath where it says add new field,
[00:09:09] there's the settings button,
[00:09:11] click that
[00:09:12] example value.
[00:09:14] Oh,
[00:09:17] interesting.
[00:09:19] I think this just pulls from a record
[00:09:22] that's useful.
[00:09:23] Yeah,
[00:09:25] especially for like formula writing
[00:09:28] and stuff like that. Much easier for those
[00:09:32] workflows for me.
[00:09:33] Yeah, absolutely. I have,
[00:09:35] I've had it before where I have a
[00:09:37] couple of different formula fields
[00:09:38] that are concatenating a bunch of stuff
[00:09:40] together and sometimes
[00:09:41] it includes the date,
[00:09:42] sometimes includes a name and then
[00:09:44] like the project number
[00:09:45] and then I'll have another
[00:09:47] very similar field that's
[00:09:48] all of those things minus one.
[00:09:50] And seeing that
[00:09:52] as an example view column
[00:09:53] oh, now I can see well this field gives me
[00:09:56] everything and the date
[00:09:57] and this field gives me everything
[00:09:59] except for the date.
[00:10:00] So
[00:10:01] that's useful.
[00:10:03] You can sort so
[00:10:06] Oh wow.
[00:10:08] All right, so Kuovonne has tested for me
[00:10:11] created two date fields
[00:10:13] but changing the field configuration
[00:10:15] only changed the
[00:10:15] first field. Okay,
[00:10:17] thank you for testing.
[00:10:19] This is I bring this up
[00:10:21] because like earlier
[00:10:22] this past week someone on the
[00:10:24] forums was sort of lamenting that
[00:10:27] they have a bunch of date fields that they
[00:10:30] add and they constantly
[00:10:32] have to change the formatting
[00:10:33] with formula fields or
[00:10:34] individually through each
[00:10:36] configuration setting
[00:10:37] and then it was brought up that
[00:10:39] like I did like a speck
[00:10:41] project
[00:10:42] where that's a thing
[00:10:44] that you could do with the extensions
[00:10:47] api you can get in
[00:10:48] there and bulk change
[00:10:50] configuration options for
[00:10:53] different fields depending on
[00:10:56] the type of field
[00:10:57] like dates and checkboxes,
[00:10:58] all the ones listed in the
[00:10:59] screenshot I shared.
[00:11:01] Yeah so
[00:11:05] below this on the next like
[00:11:08] reply in this thread
[00:11:09] I was like yeah I'm not sure if
[00:11:11] I'm actually gonna release this
[00:11:13] extension
[00:11:13] honestly I feel like it would work
[00:11:15] better as a settings panel
[00:11:16] so like I'd be happy to
[00:11:18] just hand it over to Airtable.
[00:11:19] Well now they have a settings panel
[00:11:21] I'm looking at you Airtable
[00:11:24] Yeah I already did it. The code is done.
[00:11:29] Get in touch with Kamille get this added.
[00:11:35] Alright well cool.
[00:11:37] Yeah. So hot off the press
[00:11:39] I looked in the community
[00:11:42] and they haven't announced this
[00:11:45] new feature yet
[00:11:46] so hopefully it doesn't get
[00:11:48] pulled
[00:11:51] have happened before. Yeah
[00:11:54] it seems like a fairly
[00:11:58] like you're not changing functionality
[00:12:00] really. It's it's giving you a new way of
[00:12:02] looking at stuff you
[00:12:03] could have already done
[00:12:05] with the exception of the
[00:12:05] dependencies thing
[00:12:07] like that you could have figured out
[00:12:09] through investigation
[00:12:10] but it's putting it all there in one spot.
[00:12:13] Hopefully that
[00:12:15] you know makes it a lot easy easier
[00:12:18] and Kuovonne is saying
[00:12:20] you can sort by field
[00:12:22] type so
[00:12:23] that's useful.
[00:12:25] Yeah.
[00:12:26] Yeah, that's what I did here. Yeah.
[00:12:29] Well especially too,
[00:12:31] if you use any sort of like naming
[00:12:34] or indexing concept,
[00:12:35] like we do with the emojis
[00:12:37] whenever I had to go back
[00:12:39] and put all of the field
[00:12:41] type emojis essentially
[00:12:43] back when they took them away
[00:12:45] on the detailed view that
[00:12:46] took hours, I mean probably days
[00:12:49] to do
[00:12:50] and just having this panel right here
[00:12:52] would have made that take minutes.
[00:12:54] Yeah,
[00:12:57] Yeah. This is a huge time saver
[00:13:00] to modify update
[00:13:02] even just renaming the fields
[00:13:05] even if it didn't do
[00:13:06] any of the rest of the stuff
[00:13:08] just having the one interface
[00:13:10] to rename the fields
[00:13:11] and be able to just go down the line
[00:13:14] is I think going to be
[00:13:15] a big workflow changer
[00:13:16] for a lot of people.
[00:13:17] Yeah.
[00:13:18] And being able to see
[00:13:20] example views
[00:13:21] and the description column right next to
[00:13:23] each other. It'll help you
[00:13:24] as you're like writing,
[00:13:26] what's the difference between
[00:13:27] these eight formulas
[00:13:29] now you can see
[00:13:31] and of course field permissions
[00:13:33] you know,
[00:13:33] it's nice to see that kind of just
[00:13:35] there.
[00:13:36] Yeah, this actually
[00:13:37] might get me to use
[00:13:39] field permissions more that you can
[00:13:41] manage it all here.
[00:13:42] Yeah, I only use it a little bit,
[00:13:45] most of the bases I use,
[00:13:46] I'm functionally the only person in them.
[00:13:49] so I don't have need for permissions
[00:13:52] a whole lot of time except for giving a
[00:13:54] field the permission of
[00:13:56] nobody
[00:13:57] except for automations
[00:13:58] that's really useful.
[00:14:00] Yeah.
[00:14:01] Yeah, so good stuff definitely.
[00:14:05] A huge upgrade
[00:14:06] and overall management of your
[00:14:09] base and tables, things like that.
[00:14:12] So looking forward to that.
[00:14:14] Let's keep on the path
[00:14:17] of new features
[00:14:18] that are showing up in the
[00:14:21] BuiltOnAir community
[00:14:23] has been great to to
[00:14:24] bring these out much faster than Airtable.
[00:14:28] I don't think
[00:14:29] here's another one that Kamille
[00:14:30] you were the first to point out
[00:14:32] that I saw.
[00:14:34] Yeah, this was really random. I just
[00:14:36] for that same spec app I was
[00:14:40] using, I was just sort of like verifying
[00:14:43] you know what my options were and then I
[00:14:45] it was like I don't remember dot
[00:14:48] being an option
[00:14:49] and then I looked at my code
[00:14:50] for that app and I was like no,
[00:14:52] it's not an option
[00:14:53] because two months ago
[00:14:54] when I wrote this app you have to like
[00:14:56] write out what all the possibilities are
[00:14:58] and I didn't write dot there.
[00:14:59] So that is relatively new.
[00:15:01] I don't know how long
[00:15:02] it's been there but it's been
[00:15:03] there for a little bit.
[00:15:05] Yeah, I hadn't noticed it before.
[00:15:09] It's, you know,
[00:15:12] I think it's nice.
[00:15:14] The one the one thing that bothers me
[00:15:16] this is nit picky but check box and rating
[00:15:19] fields have the same
[00:15:21] selection for color
[00:15:23] and icon except for one,
[00:15:25] like the rating field has one
[00:15:28] less option and I think it's
[00:15:30] check mark.
[00:15:31] I don't think you can have a
[00:15:32] check mark in a rating.
[00:15:34] it's one of those,
[00:15:35] one of those six options
[00:15:37] you can't have it.
[00:15:38] I wonder if that's because
[00:15:39] they thought it would be confusing
[00:15:41] with the check box.
[00:15:41] I'm sure they did. But also like
[00:15:45] just make it
[00:15:46] it's easier on them
[00:15:47] if they make it consistent.
[00:15:49] And then I was also saying
[00:15:50] I would like to have an X.
[00:15:51] Like you can have a check
[00:15:52] mark, I would want to have an X.
[00:15:55] And then I think
[00:15:56] I don't have any other requests
[00:15:58] for the check box field.
[00:15:59] I think it's nice how it is.
[00:16:01] Anyway, they added a new option.
[00:16:03] Yeah, there's another feature for you
[00:16:07] that also was not announced anywhere in
[00:16:10] the Airtable forums. Here's one more
[00:16:17] display time zone.
[00:16:18] So this is a new feature. I can show
[00:16:21] that
[00:16:22] you go to a date
[00:16:29] here,
[00:16:34] here we go.
[00:16:35] So now when you go into
[00:16:38] the customized field type,
[00:16:40] there's now this display time zone,
[00:16:45] what does that do?
[00:16:48] It just puts
[00:16:49] like the the acronym next to it.
[00:16:54] So you're always aware of what
[00:16:58] time it's being stored in Airtable as
[00:17:03] because you have the option of
[00:17:05] using one time zone for everybody or using
[00:17:07] everybody's like local time zone
[00:17:09] and that could get really confusing.
[00:17:11] So it's just a visual marker.
[00:17:13] I don't think it really
[00:17:15] changed functionality but
[00:17:16] it should change
[00:17:18] hopefully how you know
[00:17:20] or limit confusion as people are
[00:17:23] editing the same base
[00:17:24] from like two very different locations.
[00:17:26] Well a lot of times with formulas
[00:17:28] if you're working off multiple date fields
[00:17:31] and comparing a bunch of different dates,
[00:17:34] having one of those things in GMT
[00:17:36] throws off the whole thing
[00:17:38] just being able to see
[00:17:40] which one is even wrong
[00:17:42] because if their dates that are
[00:17:44] in the past or in the future,
[00:17:46] like you're not referencing
[00:17:47] to your time right
[00:17:48] this second,
[00:17:49] You don't know whether it's
[00:17:51] three hours ahead or 12 hours
[00:17:52] ahead or or whatever
[00:17:53] that is.
[00:17:54] This just puts the little guy right there
[00:17:56] so that you know specifically
[00:17:58] which one is wrong.
[00:18:01] Yeah so it does yeah
[00:18:03] so if you're using the GMT
[00:18:05] then and then you have that
[00:18:06] toggle on so it'll show you GMT
[00:18:10] so that's useful because now
[00:18:12] you know that this
[00:18:13] is using the same date for
[00:18:14] everybody at the same time.
[00:18:18] Let's see if I just messed up my date
[00:18:22] interesting
[00:18:24] that it didn't adjust it
[00:18:26] but I think it leaves it alone
[00:18:29] and if you add new values,
[00:18:31] I don't really remember
[00:18:33] how it works precisely but it's
[00:18:36] it for me it's a crapshoot
[00:18:38] of whether or not
[00:18:39] I want to use the GMT toggle.
[00:18:42] Yeah definitely one of the biggest
[00:18:45] headaches, working with dates
[00:18:50] and I'm not like a developer
[00:18:52] or any of that stuff.
[00:18:54] Is this just a hard thing
[00:18:55] across the board?
[00:18:56] Like everybody struggles with date.
[00:18:59] It's not well any
[00:19:00] javascript based system
[00:19:02] definitely struggles with dates.
[00:19:04] I don't I can't
[00:19:06] speak for every coding language
[00:19:08] but like it is
[00:19:08] it's not easy if you're working in
[00:19:12] like regular javascript or react
[00:19:15] all Airtable extensions
[00:19:17] are built in a coding
[00:19:18] library called react.
[00:19:20] Which is javascript based.
[00:19:21] They have their own
[00:19:23] like packages purely designed
[00:19:25] to help you handle dates
[00:19:27] because it's difficult.
[00:19:29] You have to you know,
[00:19:31] adding and subtracting time
[00:19:33] is hard and figuring out
[00:19:36] what the third Wednesday of
[00:19:38] the sixth month is difficult
[00:19:40] and all that kind of stuff.
[00:19:42] So dates are hard.
[00:19:44] Yeah.
[00:19:45] Yeah, it's across the board
[00:19:47] just because time zones,
[00:19:50] it's just complicated.
[00:19:54] Alright. Moving on,
[00:19:55] another feature
[00:19:57] that was brought up actually.
[00:20:00] We'll come back to that one.
[00:20:02] Let's stick with features.
[00:20:06] Okay. A grouping one.
[00:20:08] So this is in the group by
[00:20:10] show groups with no records.
[00:20:13] So that's useful.
[00:20:14] So now there's a little icon
[00:20:17] to show if there's no records,
[00:20:20] you can hide it.
[00:20:23] I think that's only for select fields.
[00:20:28] Or you know, things with like
[00:20:31] finite options.
[00:20:32] So I think select fields and maybe
[00:20:34] check box fields
[00:20:35] because it could either be checked
[00:20:36] or unchecked and there's no
[00:20:37] other potential option for it.
[00:20:40] And the grouping dialogue now
[00:20:42] before it would show you like the list of
[00:20:45] every
[00:20:46] field in your table
[00:20:48] now it'll show you
[00:20:49] if you have no group set already,
[00:20:51] it will show you
[00:20:53] the fields you probably
[00:20:54] want to group by, and those are typically
[00:20:56] select field or I think it also picks out
[00:21:01] linked record fields,
[00:21:03] like the types of fields
[00:21:04] you typically do group by,
[00:21:06] and they'll put those at the top
[00:21:08] so that it saves hopefully saves you time
[00:21:11] and
[00:21:12] looking through all of your things.
[00:21:14] Yeah, Gotcha,
[00:21:16] let's see
[00:21:18] if I can see it here,
[00:21:24] I will say one thing
[00:21:25] that I really love on this
[00:21:26] is that they've kind of
[00:21:26] consolidated that initial uI experience
[00:21:29] across the filters, the groups and the
[00:21:32] sorting. So you're kind of using
[00:21:35] the same little dropdowns and things.
[00:21:38] It's just a nice touch.
[00:21:40] Yeah,
[00:21:42] Yeah, so other field types,
[00:21:44] So this is a formula
[00:21:45] and it doesn't have that.
[00:21:49] See this is one of those weird things too
[00:21:51] that I talked about always that
[00:21:52] nobody's using the same version
[00:21:54] of the product,
[00:21:55] because I've had that little
[00:21:56] icon, that little I for a while,
[00:21:59] I've had it too.
[00:22:00] It's not to me that part
[00:22:02] wasn't new,
[00:22:03] but they did change a bunch of
[00:22:05] like, what you first see
[00:22:07] when you have the group by option.
[00:22:11] Yeah.
[00:22:14] cool. So yeah,
[00:22:15] and it seems like they
[00:22:17] yeah, and some people in the thread were
[00:22:20] saying like they still have
[00:22:21] the old group I
[00:22:22] so they don't even have this new
[00:22:23] interface,
[00:22:25] so they've got lots of Ui changes
[00:22:29] in A B testing.
[00:22:32] Yeah
[00:22:34] A B testing,
[00:22:35] it's so hard to troubleshoot
[00:22:38] for other people
[00:22:39] if you don't have the same
[00:22:42] interface.
[00:22:43] Well the thing is is it's okay
[00:22:45] if you're A B testing but we're not
[00:22:47] just A B testing
[00:22:48] we're A B C D E F and G testing
[00:22:51] at any given time and nobody
[00:22:53] knows what group that they're in so
[00:22:56] well because it's not consistent
[00:22:58] because it's in one base testing this and
[00:23:00] another base not
[00:23:03] at the user level,
[00:23:05] you're experiencing one thing
[00:23:07] in one place,
[00:23:08] you should be experiencing it
[00:23:10] in all of the others.
[00:23:11] But that's hard because
[00:23:12] you've got different people
[00:23:14] shared to different bases and
[00:23:16] do it on the workspace level then,
[00:23:20] I don't know. Yeah. Something.
[00:23:23] But I think that
[00:23:24] these are some of those things
[00:23:26] that they just didn't really
[00:23:28] think about whenever they set up
[00:23:29] their whole pricing model
[00:23:31] and they're they're
[00:23:31] structuring of how they were going to
[00:23:33] charge everybody and how people are gonna
[00:23:35] be on teams and things like that.
[00:23:37] You know,
[00:23:38] I guess some of these things
[00:23:39] you just can't really account for it
[00:23:41] at that given time
[00:23:43] but I don't think that
[00:23:44] they've continued to handle it
[00:23:46] well once they figured out
[00:23:48] that this was a problem either.
[00:23:50] Yeah.
[00:23:52] Yeah. The other one.
[00:23:54] Like I only have one base
[00:23:56] that has the new UI with the data
[00:23:58] interface automations up at the top
[00:24:00] but I haven't heard of any,
[00:24:01] it sounds like nobody else
[00:24:03] is seeing that in any other bases.
[00:24:07] I know, but it's only in
[00:24:08] one base that I have it,
[00:24:10] it's just for that one base for you Dan.
[00:24:13] Well, and so I posted something the
[00:24:16] other day, you know,
[00:24:18] we got the new filtering options
[00:24:20] to be able to filter by a
[00:24:21] specific linked record field.
[00:24:23] And I actually I
[00:24:26] before I had done
[00:24:27] all of the investigation,
[00:24:28] I had jumped Airtable's butt on the
[00:24:30] forum because I had thought
[00:24:31] they had taken it away
[00:24:33] because I got a nice little
[00:24:35] blue like information icon
[00:24:38] next to it saying available soon.
[00:24:42] And so I kind of freaked out
[00:24:43] because I've already built
[00:24:45] a bunch of things on
[00:24:45] this
[00:24:46] particular feature. Well
[00:24:48] anyway, come to find out
[00:24:50] later on that was a look up field.
[00:24:52] So we may,
[00:24:53] what it was actually saying is
[00:24:56] eventually you will be able to use
[00:24:59] that same granular filtering
[00:25:01] for look up fields and that's great news
[00:25:05] but
[00:25:06] with the sort of lack of
[00:25:10] letting anybody know
[00:25:11] what the what the behavior is
[00:25:14] and to then going to another
[00:25:16] base and doing the exact same thing
[00:25:19] and having it not
[00:25:20] not do that.
[00:25:23] And then this particular
[00:25:25] dialogue that creates this,
[00:25:28] I'm gonna call it a bug
[00:25:30] for now,
[00:25:31] is it only happens if you right click
[00:25:34] on the field header and do filter
[00:25:36] from there in a little drop down
[00:25:38] and I making any sense whatsoever?
[00:25:40] I understand what you're saying
[00:25:42] because I use Airtable all the time
[00:25:45] you know, it is
[00:25:47] what you stumbled across
[00:25:49] is a typical
[00:25:50] I don't think I've ever seen there be a
[00:25:53] coming soon in Airtable
[00:25:55] stuff just sort of happens
[00:25:56] and you're like,
[00:25:57] oh it's here now, cool,
[00:25:58] there's no announcement at all
[00:26:00] in that thread where they
[00:26:01] were announcing the
[00:26:03] filter by specific linked record,
[00:26:06] there's one reply by someone
[00:26:08] from
[00:26:09] Airtable named Tim
[00:26:10] and he was like,
[00:26:12] he was replying to someone else
[00:26:13] who was saying it'd be great
[00:26:14] if we could do the
[00:26:15] same thing and look up fields,
[00:26:17] and Tim said
[00:26:18] that's coming
[00:26:19] and there was no timeline
[00:26:20] or anything about it
[00:26:22] and so you found the place holder
[00:26:24] for that. So they, you know,
[00:26:25] he was being truthful
[00:26:27] obviously that it's coming
[00:26:28] but it, it happens
[00:26:30] never that they put something in place
[00:26:34] and say coming soon and it's just not
[00:26:36] there yet.
[00:26:37] Normally they just sort of put it there,
[00:26:39] so that is confusing.
[00:26:41] Yeah,
[00:26:42] yeah, lots of
[00:26:44] lots of stuff coming out
[00:26:47] one more and then we can move on.
[00:26:51] So there is a game we
[00:26:52] were playing in the,
[00:26:54] in the BuiltOnAir slack community
[00:26:58] Justin started
[00:26:59] this. Never have I ever
[00:27:01] so I was gonna ask,
[00:27:02] I didn't see either of you
[00:27:04] respond to this,
[00:27:04] so we'll see what your responses are.
[00:27:07] So it's never have I ever Airtable
[00:27:09] style with something that
[00:27:12] you have never done in Airtable.
[00:27:16] So Justin started, added a collaborator
[00:27:19] field to a base
[00:27:21] or worked on a client project
[00:27:23] that had one. I have
[00:27:25] against all. I know I said
[00:27:26] six minutes ago.
[00:27:27] Oh I'm usually the only collaborator
[00:27:29] in the base.
[00:27:31] I have used a collaborator field.
[00:27:34] What's something you haven't used?
[00:27:37] Oh dear. Oh no.
[00:27:40] My problem is I build
[00:27:42] so much random stuff
[00:27:43] for other people and this is why I
[00:27:45] didn't play
[00:27:46] because like it's not that I personally
[00:27:48] use the feature,
[00:27:48] I built something for someone else
[00:27:51] and they use that feature so I abstain.
[00:27:55] Yeah that's fair.
[00:27:56] I mean I've probably played
[00:27:58] with every feature for sure.
[00:28:00] Hannah says understanding Rejex.
[00:28:03] I think many can no one understands
[00:28:05] Rejex are you kidding?
[00:28:08] It's not a real one
[00:28:09] to write all my Rejex.
[00:28:11] It's already made formulas,
[00:28:14] Nathan says understanding
[00:28:17] the switch command or switch function
[00:28:22] that will save you so much time
[00:28:24] just power through it.
[00:28:26] That's what I'm trying to
[00:28:28] do with scripting right now.
[00:28:30] I think that probably
[00:28:31] writing my own script is my
[00:28:34] never have I ever I use lots of scripts
[00:28:36] but they are not my scripts.
[00:28:39] Yeah
[00:28:42] and for me it would probably be
[00:28:45] this isn't like I never have I ever but a
[00:28:48] dirty secret is
[00:28:49] in our consulting business,
[00:28:52] we use another system for our
[00:28:54] project management,
[00:28:56] wow okay well you gotta spill now
[00:29:02] we use click up. Interesting.
[00:29:08] So there's a dirty little secret.
[00:29:11] Honestly, the main reason
[00:29:14] is we don't want to
[00:29:15] have to pay for collaborators
[00:29:18] so that we can give
[00:29:19] our clients access to it.
[00:29:21] That's fair. I mean that's
[00:29:23] one of the drawbacks,
[00:29:25] specifically of Airtable's pricing model.
[00:29:26] We're getting a request
[00:29:28] from Kuovonne
[00:29:29] to show if you try to delete a field that
[00:29:32] has a dependency on it,
[00:29:34] it now warns you, which is very useful.
[00:29:36] So
[00:29:39] that is good to know. So that's
[00:29:44] they also did put that
[00:29:46] dependency button in between
[00:29:49] the delete and hide field
[00:29:51] buttons. So hopefully
[00:29:53] with it being essentially
[00:29:55] a button that doesn't work right
[00:29:56] now because you have to be enterprise,
[00:29:59] it will stop some of the
[00:30:01] accidental deletions.
[00:30:03] Yeah,
[00:30:05] All right, we'll move on,
[00:30:07] we got one more
[00:30:07] and then we'll start with the with
[00:30:09] the other segments.
[00:30:10] So I thought this one was kind of cool
[00:30:14] to show kind of a
[00:30:15] fun little use case
[00:30:17] if you're interested in learning scripting
[00:30:20] and you want
[00:30:21] to see kind of how somebody else
[00:30:23] is writing a script.
[00:30:24] Here's a good little use
[00:30:25] case
[00:30:26] off of, I guess a meme
[00:30:27] I'm not on Tiktok.
[00:30:29] So apparently on Tiktok going around
[00:30:31] Steve Harvey
[00:30:32] says the success
[00:30:34] formula for success
[00:30:36] can be evaluated based off of men's
[00:30:40] suits and there's five color suits
[00:30:42] and you can make
[00:30:43] Or 3 colors... 5 suits
[00:30:45] and three shirts
[00:30:47] and that allows for
[00:30:48] a permutation of 75 different
[00:30:51] combinations.
[00:30:51] And so he wanted to write a script
[00:30:53] that would generate all of
[00:30:55] those permutations.
[00:30:57] And so and he shares the base he or she,
[00:31:00] whoever the rhyme minister is
[00:31:03] and good name.
[00:31:05] Yeah.
[00:31:07] And Kuovonne
[00:31:08] also who's a friend of the show,
[00:31:12] gives some good feedback
[00:31:15] on ways to improve the script.
[00:31:16] So if you want to see kind of
[00:31:18] the give and take
[00:31:18] of ways you can write a script
[00:31:20] and then and then improve it,
[00:31:21] I think this is a good,
[00:31:24] good flow to look at and learn from.
[00:31:27] Yeah,
[00:31:27] yeah, I saw this thread and
[00:31:30] my
[00:31:33] natural inclination is to just
[00:31:35] solve.
[00:31:36] So
[00:31:37] I
[00:31:37] Kuovonne did the polite thing,
[00:31:39] which is ask if they wanted help
[00:31:40] in the first place.
[00:31:41] So I was going to be like,
[00:31:43] well, here's how you really do it.
[00:31:44] And then I was like,
[00:31:46] let me just not.
[00:31:46] And so I'm happy that there's,
[00:31:48] you know, a more educational version
[00:31:51] of perhaps what I might have done because
[00:31:53] the script at the top works,
[00:31:55] or at least it should work.
[00:31:56] I didn't test it myself,
[00:31:57] but just sort of reading through it,
[00:31:59] you know,
[00:32:00] Perfectly fine,
[00:32:01] but could be a little slow
[00:32:03] because it's 75 permutations.
[00:32:05] If you've used Airtable scripting before,
[00:32:08] you might know that you could do 50
[00:32:12] batch
[00:32:13] Calls in a in a single call.
[00:32:15] So you can delete,
[00:32:16] create or update 50 records at
[00:32:18] once. So you can do this in just two
[00:32:21] cycles as opposed to 75.
[00:32:24] Yeah,
[00:32:25] but otherwise
[00:32:28] just a nifty little use case.
[00:32:30] Yeah,
[00:32:31] very cool. So check that out
[00:32:33] on the forum.
[00:32:34] We'll have the link in the show notes.
[00:32:36] All right. That is the end
[00:32:39] of our Round the Bases.
[00:32:41] Lots of new functionality to
[00:32:43] play with and
[00:32:46] and to learn from.
[00:32:48] So next we're going to go
[00:32:50] into On2Air, our primary sponsor.
[00:32:52] It's an all in one toolkit
[00:32:54] to run your business on Airtable.
[00:32:58] And for today's spotlight,
[00:33:01] we're gonna do another sneak peek.
[00:33:03] We did this two weeks ago
[00:33:05] on our last segment
[00:33:06] of what's coming out next with
[00:33:08] On2Air
[00:33:08] something we've been working on
[00:33:11] for many, many months and it's
[00:33:13] getting very close
[00:33:15] were a couple of weeks away
[00:33:17] from releasing a standalone forms
[00:33:19] builder
[00:33:20] to where you can build a
[00:33:22] external form
[00:33:23] that does a lot of advanced functionality
[00:33:25] we showcased last time
[00:33:27] the ability to view linked records
[00:33:30] and edit linked records.
[00:33:32] This is the builder side of it
[00:33:34] where you'll be able to build it.
[00:33:36] And we just added the ability
[00:33:39] to create field sets and columns.
[00:33:41] So you can actually have
[00:33:43] multi column forms.
[00:33:45] So you can have up to four
[00:33:46] different columns
[00:33:48] and specify how many columns you want,
[00:33:50] and then you'll have
[00:33:51] all of your fields
[00:33:53] that you can configure within
[00:33:55] each of these field sets,
[00:33:57] and move them around
[00:33:59] and set up more advanced
[00:34:01] forms with multiple
[00:34:03] columns and widths and things like that.
[00:34:07] So just a sneak peek at the
[00:34:09] functionality to configure
[00:34:12] all of the fields within your,
[00:34:15] your forms and
[00:34:16] field sets and
[00:34:17] configurations on that front. So
[00:34:20] very excited for this.
[00:34:22] Still quite a few things
[00:34:24] that we need to work out
[00:34:25] and get ready for launch,
[00:34:27] but this is coming,
[00:34:29] our goal is by the end of the month
[00:34:31] it might be very beginning of August
[00:34:33] by time we get all the final kinks worked
[00:34:36] out but excited to launch this,
[00:34:38] we'd love to hear your feedback
[00:34:40] on functionality
[00:34:40] that you want to see
[00:34:42] in an external form solution.
[00:34:44] So look forward to that coming soon.
[00:34:47] Cool.
[00:34:49] Yes,
[00:34:50] lots and lots of hours put into that.
[00:34:53] All right, Rebecca if you want to get your
[00:34:56] screen ready
[00:34:57] if you want to share
[00:34:59] and you're still on mute.
[00:35:03] Alright then, let's see.
[00:35:06] Well have you showcase
[00:35:08] what you've been working on
[00:35:11] no, it's gonna make me go
[00:35:12] out and come back,
[00:35:15] wait a second for that.
[00:35:18] Well until then actually Kuovonne
[00:35:22] said if we should if we could showcase
[00:35:26] the base that
[00:35:28] came with it on,
[00:35:30] on the one we were talking about.
[00:35:33] So let's click on this guy,
[00:35:36] was saying it's kind of a cool base
[00:35:41] with gallery view
[00:35:48] Under the outfits, go to gallery.
[00:35:52] There you go,
[00:35:53] you've got all of your combinations,
[00:35:56] we should get this in front
[00:35:58] of Steve Harvey
[00:36:01] see this is like, Airtable let's you do
[00:36:04] cool little stuff like this and it's
[00:36:07] actually really, really useful
[00:36:09] if you're familiar with
[00:36:10] what's called a capsule
[00:36:12] wardrobe, which is technically
[00:36:13] what Steve Harvey apparently described,
[00:36:15] where you have,
[00:36:16] you know, a limited number of
[00:36:19] solid pieces of clothing
[00:36:20] and they're supposed to be, you know,
[00:36:22] not super expensive
[00:36:23] but like high quality
[00:36:24] where you could wear them over and
[00:36:25] over
[00:36:26] and you have them,
[00:36:28] you know for different colors
[00:36:30] and different
[00:36:31] you know instances
[00:36:33] that you would wear them
[00:36:34] casual, business casual etcetera and
[00:36:36] you just create
[00:36:37] many permutations of those
[00:36:40] statement pieces,
[00:36:42] then you end up with a very,
[00:36:44] very varied wardrobe that could
[00:36:46] last you, you know
[00:36:48] your whole year
[00:36:49] without feeling too repetitive.
[00:36:50] That's a
[00:36:52] thing in fashion,
[00:36:53] that is I think fairly common
[00:36:54] and you could build something
[00:36:56] that helps you
[00:36:57] plan out your outfits
[00:36:58] throughout the day if that's something you
[00:37:00] want to do in Airtable
[00:37:02] yep, all right,
[00:37:04] Rebecca go ahead
[00:37:05] and share your screen if you're ready
[00:37:13] and
[00:37:16] oops,
[00:37:17] that's alright,
[00:37:18] I'll just minimize this.
[00:37:20] Yeah, now you're live
[00:37:23] Alright, we can see it.
[00:37:25] Okay, so I am going to show the
[00:37:28] end result first
[00:37:29] because I think it makes the rest
[00:37:31] of it make a lot more sense.
[00:37:33] So
[00:37:36] long story short,
[00:37:37] I started working for a company
[00:37:39] called crowd share
[00:37:40] and I am head of product
[00:37:43] and we have to,
[00:37:45] we're at the end, the apps already
[00:37:48] built were in the testing phase
[00:37:52] and the first thing
[00:37:53] that we want to do
[00:37:53] is some sort of manual testing.
[00:37:55] So we have purchased physical devices,
[00:37:57] We've hired testers to sit in a room and
[00:38:00] run through
[00:38:01] essentially a script
[00:38:03] and when I say script,
[00:38:05] I mean literally do this first,
[00:38:07] then do this, then do this. And so
[00:38:10] this is what I came up with
[00:38:11] to kind of give them
[00:38:12] some sort of an almost bug
[00:38:14] reporting tools. So these are
[00:38:16] fake people
[00:38:19] and they are tied to test our accounts
[00:38:22] and then once they,
[00:38:25] that's
[00:38:29] well that's new.
[00:38:30] So it looks like if you filter by
[00:38:33] an exact linked record and
[00:38:34] then de dupe the records
[00:38:36] with each other, it's going to break your
[00:38:41] filter, good to know
[00:38:44] but
[00:38:47] you can see,
[00:38:49] they just go in, click start testing
[00:38:52] and they come to this little checklist
[00:38:56] and so each checklist will see the
[00:38:58] breakdown in the back
[00:38:59] but it's been built off of a
[00:39:01] junction table that's looking
[00:39:02] at
[00:39:03] a master checklist
[00:39:04] and task list
[00:39:05] and then rebuilding
[00:39:07] or building that with the
[00:39:08] script.
[00:39:09] So they can come in here,
[00:39:11] it's just something to make it pretty,
[00:39:12] tells them what to do
[00:39:14] and they can fill out a form
[00:39:17] to say whether the step was
[00:39:18] successful or not.
[00:39:24] So if they completed it successfully,
[00:39:27] they just hit submit, if they had some
[00:39:29] problems, they can share their problems.
[00:39:31] If they could not complete the task,
[00:39:33] they can let us know there
[00:39:35] and provide the information
[00:39:38] about what they
[00:39:39] experienced.
[00:39:41] So
[00:39:45] the back end of that looks like
[00:39:50] this and so
[00:39:51] what I did on that first page
[00:39:54] is basically, and there's
[00:39:56] information on there
[00:39:58] that I can't share
[00:39:59] so I can't go back to it,
[00:40:01] but they have a button
[00:40:03] that says start testing
[00:40:10] and that takes them to their unpublished
[00:40:14] interface.
[00:40:18] If we choose to use Interfaces,
[00:40:19] now one of the problems
[00:40:21] that we're having with
[00:40:21] potentially using Interfaces
[00:40:23] is obviously getting everybody
[00:40:27] logged in and all of that stuff.
[00:40:29] Originally I had built this
[00:40:31] to where they could
[00:40:32] use check boxes
[00:40:33] to check off their tasks but
[00:40:35] between pori's bugs
[00:40:37] because I also built a pori
[00:40:39] site for this and I'll show
[00:40:40] you that here in a minute.
[00:40:42] But between their bugs and
[00:40:46] the shortcomings of Interfaces,
[00:40:49] I've had to rebuild this
[00:40:51] a couple of different
[00:40:52] times, a couple of different ways.
[00:40:55] So we went through live,
[00:40:57] I got to sit with the developer
[00:41:00] and essentially say,
[00:41:01] okay, what are all the screens
[00:41:03] and what are they all supposed to do?
[00:41:05] And we built this master
[00:41:07] sort of checklist.
[00:41:08] There's three different
[00:41:10] types of users within the app.
[00:41:13] and so
[00:41:17] the first problem that I came up to
[00:41:20] when building this was that
[00:41:23] it was difficult to get
[00:41:25] the actual user's feedback
[00:41:28] back to the record
[00:41:30] and still be tied to that user
[00:41:33] and so we ended up using
[00:41:35] a junction table script.
[00:41:37] Actually the one that is
[00:41:40] default
[00:41:42] In the marketplace?
[00:41:44] Yeah, that one.
[00:41:46] And I will say that I
[00:41:49] initially tried to use
[00:41:54] see
[00:41:58] that
[00:41:58] I think
[00:42:01] is it yours Kamille?
[00:42:03] I have one
[00:42:05] junction table assistant.
[00:42:07] Then there's link records by fields,
[00:42:10] which effectively
[00:42:11] creates a junction table kind of
[00:42:13] and then there's the
[00:42:14] junction table script.
[00:42:16] So all of them do slightly different
[00:42:17] things and
[00:42:19] it's not always going to be the case
[00:42:21] that any of those three do what you want
[00:42:23] them to do.
[00:42:24] Yeah, I just didn't have time
[00:42:26] to figure it out. That was it. This one,
[00:42:29] I actually probably spent more time
[00:42:32] looking for something else than if I would
[00:42:36] have just
[00:42:37] gone in and
[00:42:38] and chosen this first because
[00:42:40] they didn't know it was there,
[00:42:42] but
[00:42:44] it was super easy to set up
[00:42:46] basically just saying
[00:42:48] what are the two tables that
[00:42:50] you're looking at
[00:42:51] building
[00:42:53] junction records for
[00:42:54] And so a junction record,
[00:42:56] you can see here,
[00:42:57] it'll just be tied to
[00:42:59] also the tester and the task.
[00:43:03] I feel like I'm
[00:43:04] this is the part where
[00:43:05] I always feel like I stopped making sense.
[00:43:06] But
[00:43:08] so I can take these master
[00:43:10] checklists
[00:43:12] And say, Okay, now
[00:43:14] I know that every tester
[00:43:15] of the 12 testers that I have needs
[00:43:18] to have one instance of the join a channel
[00:43:21] under the ambassador user type.
[00:43:23] So by running this junction script,
[00:43:26] I was able to have it come create you can
[00:43:30] see tester one join the channel
[00:43:32] tester two join the channel
[00:43:34] tester three join the channel
[00:43:36] yeah and also create the tasks
[00:43:38] that go with that. So the tasks are the
[00:43:41] individual things
[00:43:42] that happen within that page.
[00:43:45] So
[00:43:47] some of the fun little
[00:43:50] features because I know this isn't like
[00:43:53] a super exciting tool but as they submit
[00:43:57] the reports based on the outcome
[00:43:59] it'll go through
[00:44:01] and check off their interface.
[00:44:03] So
[00:44:05] we go through here start testing
[00:44:10] And I go step one.
[00:44:13] Yeah
[00:44:18] the form completed successfully.
[00:44:28] Are these read only users?
[00:44:30] Yes they will be. Okay.
[00:44:34] And so that
[00:44:35] will
[00:44:37] there we go
[00:44:38] gives you a nice big check mark
[00:44:40] to let you know that was done.
[00:44:41] This is one of those things
[00:44:43] that's going to be broken
[00:44:44] in November because I'm
[00:44:46] gonna have to figure out
[00:44:47] how to get a new U. R. L.
[00:44:49] Oh you're doing that with a formula.
[00:44:51] No I'm doing it with
[00:44:54] automations but I'm using the Airtable
[00:44:57] URL
[00:44:57] I don't know maybe I can
[00:44:59] will still be able to store it
[00:45:01] somewhere
[00:45:02] if you're
[00:45:03] so what's happening?
[00:45:05] Your automation is taking the U. R. L.
[00:45:07] From an attachment
[00:45:08] and putting it where?
[00:45:10] In another attachment field?
[00:45:12] On top of the it just clears
[00:45:14] the attachment that's here.
[00:45:16] Actually the automation
[00:45:18] checks the check box which
[00:45:19] clears the attachment
[00:45:20] and then puts a new attachment
[00:45:22] here you're fine because
[00:45:23] what it's doing is
[00:45:24] it's uploading a new attachment.
[00:45:26] So the link is changing
[00:45:27] but you're pulling from the
[00:45:28] attachment field anyway so
[00:45:29] you're you're fine.
[00:45:31] I'll show you what's gonna break
[00:45:35] when my segment comes up.
[00:45:38] Yeah so
[00:45:39] as they go through
[00:45:41] and check all of those things off
[00:45:45] it will
[00:45:48] check out the whole
[00:45:50] I hate that those open.
[00:45:52] I wish there was like a model
[00:45:55] instead
[00:45:58] but
[00:45:59] we just got
[00:46:00] so many new changes in interface.
[00:46:02] I'm not gonna complain.
[00:46:05] It's not as bad you're using the app so it
[00:46:09] pops you out but
[00:46:10] if you were in a browser
[00:46:11] then it would just go
[00:46:14] so it wouldn't be as
[00:46:17] so I think actually
[00:46:18] these are taking so long
[00:46:19] because it's running through two
[00:46:20] separate automations.
[00:46:23] Yeah. Something
[00:46:24] probably gonna condense that
[00:46:26] into just one.
[00:46:29] But once those run through
[00:46:32] and correct themselves
[00:46:34] this would turn into that
[00:46:35] checkmark and filter out of the
[00:46:38] page.
[00:46:40] And so the
[00:46:44] and then if they did not mark
[00:46:46] completed successfully,
[00:46:47] they completed with some
[00:46:49] difficulty or could not be completed,
[00:46:51] it'll send a slack message to a slack
[00:46:52] channel for the developer to be able to
[00:46:56] take care of it
[00:46:57] kind of as we go
[00:46:58] and he's going to be sitting there
[00:47:00] live coding
[00:47:00] with us. So
[00:47:02] he's gonna be fixing
[00:47:03] and changing things as we
[00:47:05] discover them.
[00:47:07] You can see some of my sort of
[00:47:10] the way that I've structured this
[00:47:13] we have the people on the team,
[00:47:15] the companies that we work for
[00:47:17] and the platforms
[00:47:18] that we use this is literally
[00:47:20] the platforms that we're working off of.
[00:47:23] It is a social media manager.
[00:47:24] The types of users, the testers,
[00:47:28] the master checklist
[00:47:29] and then the junction checklist,
[00:47:32] the master task list,
[00:47:33] Junction task list,
[00:47:35] reports table,
[00:47:37] which says what the problems are
[00:47:39] and then what devices we've purchased
[00:47:43] the links to all of the platform pages and
[00:47:47] then this will be the calendar
[00:47:48] for all of the different rounds
[00:47:49] of testing that
[00:47:50] we do.
[00:47:52] And so
[00:47:54] just real quick I'll show you
[00:47:56] what I built in pori for this
[00:47:59] because it is
[00:47:59] pretty cool.
[00:48:00] It's not super working right now
[00:48:03] having some troubles
[00:48:04] but they're getting them knocked out
[00:48:05] as quickly as we can
[00:48:06] report them. So
[00:48:09] that's always good.
[00:48:12] Got to get it in
[00:48:13] before your battery goes out.
[00:48:15] It will still give me a few minutes.
[00:48:33] that was cool.
[00:48:34] I don't think we've shown,
[00:48:35] maybe we've shown pori interface in
[00:48:37] the past but probably yeah,
[00:48:39] probably at some point
[00:48:41] they've changed a lot and
[00:48:42] added a lot in the interim.
[00:48:44] I know Chris Dancy
[00:48:46] who's on the Off the Record show
[00:48:49] he uses pori all the time.
[00:48:50] So I'm sure, you know,
[00:48:52] they get a lot of debut on that show, I'm
[00:48:54] sure.
[00:48:56] Yeah. So the biggest thing
[00:48:58] that makes me use pori over anything else
[00:49:01] is the ease
[00:49:02] of their sort of listing filtering.
[00:49:06] And I've only recently actually
[00:49:08] figured this out, but it changed my reason
[00:49:12] for using pori from
[00:49:13] being so easy to set up
[00:49:15] to being able to have this sort of
[00:49:17] portal functionality.
[00:49:19] And so what you're seeing here
[00:49:21] is actually a big master list
[00:49:24] of all of those
[00:49:25] users tasks.
[00:49:27] But as they log in
[00:49:29] I can set here, you know,
[00:49:31] this is the editor,
[00:49:32] so I'm previewing from my side of
[00:49:34] things, but I can see
[00:49:36] whose tasks that I want to use.
[00:49:38] So you can see here on
[00:49:39] tester two,
[00:49:40] that first task
[00:49:41] hasn't been marked off yet,
[00:49:43] whereas on tester one it
[00:49:45] has been
[00:49:48] and so you can show that user
[00:49:51] their records only,
[00:49:53] but then I can also set a view.
[00:49:55] So like this is master list
[00:49:57] is filtered down
[00:49:59] to a view that only has the
[00:50:01] Ambassador tasks,
[00:50:02] which is one of our user types
[00:50:04] and so it'll only ever show
[00:50:06] the Ambassador tasks
[00:50:08] no matter who's logged in,
[00:50:10] but if someone is logged in,
[00:50:13] they can see specifically
[00:50:15] their Ambassador tasks
[00:50:19] and so we can go through here
[00:50:22] and click view details
[00:50:25] they do have now the
[00:50:26] ability to edit,
[00:50:28] I think it's all
[00:50:30] create read, update
[00:50:32] and delete
[00:50:34] for their users.
[00:50:35] So your users can actually come in here
[00:50:39] and have an editable record
[00:50:42] or an editable listing
[00:50:44] for them to be able to make changes to.
[00:50:46] I've been struggling with that a little
[00:50:47] bit. So I just went back to the way
[00:50:49] that I knew and put a button
[00:50:51] and so the detailed view
[00:50:53] obviously opens this
[00:50:54] is the exact same thing is that
[00:50:56] interface, it's just inquiry.
[00:50:58] So I can just say go
[00:51:00] to this website and log in
[00:51:02] with these details and
[00:51:04] not have to worry about pre setting up
[00:51:07] anything pre logging into Airtable.
[00:51:11] any of the issues that I was
[00:51:13] going to have to have before
[00:51:15] and some of these things
[00:51:17] are no longer issues
[00:51:18] because I changed the form that
[00:51:19] was behind here.
[00:51:20] Used to be you would have a checkbox
[00:51:22] that you could just check it
[00:51:22] off or use a form to report the issue
[00:51:26] but in theory
[00:51:27] I wouldn't have to have a form at all
[00:51:29] once everything's working
[00:51:30] correctly.
[00:51:31] I could just put that long text field here
[00:51:34] and that,
[00:51:38] spot for the screenshots and things here
[00:51:40] on this page and they can upload the
[00:51:42] things here.
[00:51:44] The other thing too is that
[00:51:45] this would work
[00:51:46] on the actual devices that they're
[00:51:48] using where as Interfaces would not,
[00:51:50] they would have to have
[00:51:52] a separate computer
[00:51:52] sitting there with them
[00:51:54] to be able to use those Interfaces
[00:51:56] as far as I understand.
[00:52:00] Good stuff. That's awesome Rebecca
[00:52:02] thanks for sharing. Are you planning to
[00:52:05] submit that interface
[00:52:07] to the interface contest?
[00:52:09] I don't
[00:52:12] excuse me, I don't know.
[00:52:14] I know there were some funny things
[00:52:17] about them changing things right after
[00:52:19] the scripting contest
[00:52:20] and all kinds of stuff like that. I don't,
[00:52:23] I don't know
[00:52:24] if I'm gonna get involved
[00:52:25] with the whole Airtable sanctioned event
[00:52:27] thing, but
[00:52:30] I think that it's,
[00:52:31] I'm super still new to Interfaces.
[00:52:34] I've noticed that the
[00:52:36] people who were here for a long time
[00:52:38] before Interfaces really are kind of like
[00:52:40] not there,
[00:52:41] prefer to at least in my experience,
[00:52:44] the only one who I've seen taken
[00:52:46] and really run with Interfaces is
[00:52:49] Chris Dancy
[00:52:50] and he's made some amazing ones,
[00:52:52] which is, it's always funny
[00:52:54] because I remember
[00:52:55] when they were first announced,
[00:52:56] Chris was like this is useless
[00:52:58] and then like a full month went by
[00:53:00] so for a while
[00:53:01] there was not a whole lot you could really
[00:53:04] do with it I guess.
[00:53:05] And then he was like, wait a minute,
[00:53:07] this is cool
[00:53:08] if there's still a lot of stuff
[00:53:10] missing of course,
[00:53:11] but like, you know,
[00:53:12] if you really get in there
[00:53:13] you could do some stuff but like
[00:53:15] you're saying it depends on
[00:53:16] if your device can even use it,
[00:53:18] if you're, if you have a tablet,
[00:53:20] you're kind of out of luck kinda
[00:53:22] you know, there's there's limitations.
[00:53:24] All right, let's move on,
[00:53:26] thank you. Rebecca for sharing that.
[00:53:29] It's always awesome to see
[00:53:31] real world examples
[00:53:32] and how companies are using
[00:53:34] Airtable with other stuff so
[00:53:36] you can see some of that stuff as well,
[00:53:39] I just want to give a shout out to
[00:53:41] anybody that's not in our community to
[00:53:44] join now.
[00:53:45] Like we showed earlier
[00:53:46] lots of cool things going on
[00:53:48] in the BuiltOnAir
[00:53:49] community. So join us
[00:53:51] builtonair.com/join that will get you into
[00:53:54] the slack community
[00:53:56] and our newsletter
[00:53:57] and we're gonna end
[00:53:59] Kamille is gonna show
[00:54:00] some cool stuff with her website
[00:54:02] and how she uses Glide apps
[00:54:04] with Airtable.
[00:54:06] Yeah. So the cosmic timing
[00:54:08] over this all
[00:54:09] I think is just a little bit funny.
[00:54:12] So this was decided
[00:54:13] I was going to do this segment
[00:54:15] two weeks ago
[00:54:17] before we took a break for last week.
[00:54:20] And then in the interim,
[00:54:21] like beforehand, I was like,
[00:54:23] I'm starting to use Glide more I think
[00:54:26] I'm starting to like it
[00:54:27] even more and more.
[00:54:28] They have Glide apps which are sort
[00:54:30] of designed for your
[00:54:31] the mobile experience, phone and tablet.
[00:54:34] And then the more recent product
[00:54:36] they put out is Glide pages,
[00:54:38] which is more designed
[00:54:39] for the web browser.
[00:54:40] And for a while I was like,
[00:54:41] I'm not sure if that has what I
[00:54:44] think it should have to be super useful.
[00:54:47] They've added a bunch of stuff
[00:54:48] in the interim.
[00:54:49] I've been using it a lot and I'm
[00:54:50] like, wow, I really like it. And then
[00:54:53] Like three days ago
[00:54:56] I went a little too hard
[00:54:58] in the paint
[00:54:59] in the Glide community forums.
[00:55:00] I think I'm being ratioed
[00:55:02] right now as we speak.
[00:55:04] So
[00:55:08] and it kind of gets into
[00:55:10] what I was going to talk about today
[00:55:13] and I do not
[00:55:14] want to have this come across
[00:55:16] as complaining.
[00:55:17] This is more so just
[00:55:19] my experience
[00:55:21] technically is a new user
[00:55:23] and the stuff I was looking for,
[00:55:25] what's there and
[00:55:25] what's not there.
[00:55:27] We are currently looking
[00:55:28] at a piece of my active website.
[00:55:30] I have two, one for me,
[00:55:31] the entity that is Kamille Parks
[00:55:33] and another one for my
[00:55:35] company.
[00:55:35] And they're both static html websites
[00:55:39] that are loosely fed by Airtable.
[00:55:42] And the reason why I was saying
[00:55:44] stuff is gonna break is because I store my
[00:55:47] attachments in Airtable and
[00:55:49] you can't use
[00:55:50] static attachment links after
[00:55:52] November.
[00:55:53] So at some point I needed to
[00:55:55] change up my system. I was experimenting
[00:55:57] what if I did it in Glide.
[00:55:59] And so far I've been
[00:56:01] able to build something that
[00:56:02] looks really, really nice in Glide.
[00:56:05] It is I think my favorite editor,
[00:56:09] visual editor, so pori and stacker and
[00:56:14] you know softr
[00:56:15] are all fairly visual website builders.
[00:56:19] I dislike all of their
[00:56:21] editors.
[00:56:23] And I hate bubble.
[00:56:24] I've said that before.
[00:56:26] I think bubble is a nightmare on
[00:56:28] as a designer and a developer.
[00:56:30] I think bubble sucks. But that's just me.
[00:56:32] Glide I think has
[00:56:33] the most intuitive editor
[00:56:35] and I'll explain what that means.
[00:56:37] So I'm just gonna walk through
[00:56:40] how you experience it. You sort of
[00:56:44] create your pages.
[00:56:45] And you design each page.
[00:56:47] Right here this is a list
[00:56:49] component, they're called collections.
[00:56:52] It's pulling from my Airtable base,
[00:56:54] it allows you to group by a particular
[00:56:56] field. So I have a category
[00:56:58] for guidelines and visioning
[00:57:01] analysis and all that kind of stuff.
[00:57:04] So this is all one list component
[00:57:06] for projects and that's just an option
[00:57:09] if I go over here, group by project
[00:57:12] type,
[00:57:13] that's a feature I really like.
[00:57:15] And then if I wanted to
[00:57:17] design the individual
[00:57:18] page for each project,
[00:57:20] I can click on it
[00:57:22] from here and edit there.
[00:57:24] Oftentimes with other editors
[00:57:26] you have,
[00:57:27] it's a whole lot of rigmarole to get
[00:57:29] to the page
[00:57:30] that you're trying to design for.
[00:57:32] I just find the navigation
[00:57:34] system pretty intuitive
[00:57:36] when using Glide
[00:57:38] and then adding and dragging
[00:57:40] and dropping things onto the
[00:57:41] screen I think is really nice and clean.
[00:57:44] You can get if I get out of the
[00:57:47] editor and just show you
[00:57:48] what it looks like published
[00:57:49] without extra stuff around
[00:57:50] it.
[00:57:51] I think it's really nice and clean.
[00:57:54] Ben French, who's a friend of the show,
[00:57:57] he did some testing
[00:57:59] and he was saying that Glide
[00:58:02] pages load really fast, which
[00:58:04] is great to hear. There are
[00:58:07] Bill French. I'm sorry,
[00:58:08] I'm thinking of Ben Green
[00:58:10] and Bill French at the same
[00:58:12] time. Bill French Sorry.
[00:58:14] He said that they load really fast.
[00:58:16] He did some testing for it and that's
[00:58:19] great to hear.
[00:58:19] That's something that you want to hear.
[00:58:21] This is a fairly small site
[00:58:23] but you know,
[00:58:24] I can imagine that it still loads
[00:58:25] fairly quickly.
[00:58:26] And this is all pulling
[00:58:28] directly from Airtable.
[00:58:29] They have a direct connector.
[00:58:31] They started off with,
[00:58:32] you know, build your sites with sheets.
[00:58:34] Now, you can build your sites
[00:58:36] with Airtable
[00:58:36] and they have their own
[00:58:37] data store as well
[00:58:39] where you could have Glide tables
[00:58:42] and not use
[00:58:43] google sheets or Airtable
[00:58:45] and you could use a mix
[00:58:46] of both if you want it.
[00:58:47] And sometimes that's useful
[00:58:49] Glide tables
[00:58:51] have
[00:58:52] a bunch of column types that are
[00:58:55] some of them are crazy.
[00:58:57] And some of them are
[00:58:58] things that definitely should be
[00:59:00] in Airtable but aren't.
[00:59:02] You can see all of these,
[00:59:03] this icon means
[00:59:04] it's pulling straight from Airtable.
[00:59:07] If I just show you some of these
[00:59:09] column types, they have stuff for arrays
[00:59:12] that Airtable doesn't have
[00:59:14] make array,
[00:59:15] joined lists, split apart an array.
[00:59:16] If you go under the array folder,
[00:59:19] you can append something
[00:59:21] to an array and keep
[00:59:22] it as an array
[00:59:23] instead of just, you know, text.
[00:59:25] Single, one of these called single element
[00:59:30] or single item
[00:59:31] where you could
[00:59:32] pick one piece of your array,
[00:59:34] there's a lot of stuff
[00:59:35] in here that's, you know, great.
[00:59:38] And
[00:59:39] they have a column type
[00:59:41] called experimental code
[00:59:44] because why not?
[00:59:45] Where you could have
[00:59:47] code stored elsewhere.
[00:59:50] And it would call like
[00:59:51] javascript functions for you.
[00:59:54] I have this thing that I've added.
[00:59:57] So all of these
[00:59:59] columns are coming from Airtable
[01:00:01] and you can add columns to it.
[01:00:03] They're not going to appear in Airtable,
[01:00:05] they're going to only appear in Glide.
[01:00:06] But I have this thing called
[01:00:08] a placeholder image
[01:00:10] where
[01:00:11] this is a column type
[01:00:13] that's already in here.
[01:00:14] It lets you sort of
[01:00:18] create an image
[01:00:19] from like a preset number of icons,
[01:00:22] which was useful for me
[01:00:24] because I have one project
[01:00:26] that has no attachments.
[01:00:28] So it let me put this placeholder image
[01:00:31] in here. And then,
[01:00:32] you know, that's what we're seeing
[01:00:35] in this, so
[01:00:38] there's a lot that I like about
[01:00:41] the Glide pages
[01:00:43] builder.
[01:00:44] There are some things that
[01:00:46] you know, I wish were there and aren't
[01:00:49] if I these are all links,
[01:00:51] if I hover my mouse over it,
[01:00:53] nothing happens and I
[01:00:54] can't control that, which is
[01:00:58] you know,
[01:00:59] it's annoying for me
[01:01:01] because again, I built my current website,
[01:01:04] like out of straight html and CSS.
[01:01:06] So I know exactly
[01:01:08] the effect I want to put on
[01:01:09] it and it's this thing,
[01:01:11] I know I can do it
[01:01:12] because I've already done it
[01:01:14] with my current website and I
[01:01:14] can't
[01:01:15] add that to Glide pages.
[01:01:19] which is the point I was trying
[01:01:21] to get across in the forums
[01:01:23] and again I went too
[01:01:25] hard, that's my bad
[01:01:27] should have toned it down and I didn't
[01:01:31] So
[01:01:33] yeah, I was supposed to be
[01:01:34] the nice one,
[01:01:35] I don't know what happened to me in
[01:01:37] 2022, I went off the rails.
[01:01:41] But yeah, so essentially
[01:01:43] Glide apps,
[01:01:44] the segment of their product that is
[01:01:46] designed for the mobile experience
[01:01:49] experience, they have, you know,
[01:01:50] the capability to
[01:01:52] sort of hack your own CSS in there.
[01:01:54] And for Glide pages,
[01:01:55] it's
[01:01:56] explicitly a feature that's only available
[01:01:59] for like the highest plan.
[01:02:01] And my personal website
[01:02:02] is not worth getting like a
[01:02:04] the equivalent of an
[01:02:06] enterprise level
[01:02:07] thing. That doesn't make sense for me.
[01:02:10] You know, I update my website once every
[01:02:12] two years,
[01:02:12] it just so happens that
[01:02:14] this is the two years
[01:02:15] at which I was supposed
[01:02:16] to update my website,
[01:02:18] it's not really worth,
[01:02:19] you know, going through all of that. But
[01:02:22] you know, there are little things
[01:02:24] that would be so easy
[01:02:26] for me personally to fix
[01:02:27] in like a second
[01:02:29] and I can't fix it
[01:02:30] because it's not an option to fix it.
[01:02:32] They don't have like straight CSS,
[01:02:35] you can add? No.
[01:02:37] If you have the enterprise
[01:02:39] level, you can
[01:02:40] you can add custom CSS
[01:02:41] if not you're kind of out of luck now.
[01:02:44] Again, everything that you see here
[01:02:46] was done without CSS so you can still make
[01:02:49] really
[01:02:50] good
[01:02:51] fast loading, always up to date
[01:02:54] website
[01:02:55] without any sort of coding whatsoever.
[01:02:59] It's just,
[01:03:00] you know, I know how to code,
[01:03:02] I know what I'm looking for,
[01:03:03] I want to put it in
[01:03:04] there.
[01:03:06] but yeah, I think
[01:03:08] it's there's so much potential here.
[01:03:10] It's very,
[01:03:11] very nearly what I want
[01:03:13] for my personal website.
[01:03:15] It wouldn't work at all
[01:03:16] for my company website because I need
[01:03:18] to use out Ceta as my
[01:03:21] login and authentication platform.
[01:03:25] You can't embed javascript
[01:03:28] into the header
[01:03:30] so that's something you can do in
[01:03:33] pori I think.
[01:03:35] Yeah, I think you could do that in pori,
[01:03:37] you can't do that in Glide.
[01:03:38] So it would never work for that
[01:03:40] secondary website I have unless they were
[01:03:43] to add that
[01:03:45] functionality. It doesn't super sound like
[01:03:47] that's something they're looking for.
[01:03:51] So it would only work
[01:03:52] for my personal sort of website
[01:03:55] and again,
[01:03:57] like it's it's so close.
[01:03:59] It's very it's very merely
[01:04:02] very nearly there for what I want.
[01:04:06] But there there's I definitely
[01:04:08] encourage people to get in
[01:04:10] to Glide and check
[01:04:12] it out,
[01:04:12] especially for the mobile experience.
[01:04:14] Like Rebecca I think you might,
[01:04:16] you know, if you have the spare time,
[01:04:18] I'm not sure that you even do,
[01:04:20] but if you have the spare time,
[01:04:21] just play around with their apps editor.
[01:04:24] It's because people are going to be
[01:04:25] on their phones, you know,
[01:04:26] or their tablets,
[01:04:27] you could create really,
[01:04:29] really nice slick systems.
[01:04:31] and then
[01:04:32] pages is so new, relatively,
[01:04:36] it's the equivalent with like Interfaces,
[01:04:38] where Interfaces,
[01:04:39] it's technically still a beta
[01:04:41] pages. It's not a beta,
[01:04:43] but it's new enough that,
[01:04:44] you know, they're gonna be adding features
[01:04:47] to it over time and so if something
[01:04:49] you want isn't there today,
[01:04:50] it might be there in like, you know,
[01:04:52] a couple of months, I don't know,
[01:04:55] what gives me hope
[01:04:56] and what makes this again
[01:04:58] cosmically funny.
[01:04:59] The CEO of Glide is really,
[01:05:02] really active in you know,
[01:05:05] a promoting the product
[01:05:07] he was on automate all the things
[01:05:10] with Aaron
[01:05:11] and you know,
[01:05:12] constantly talking about the product
[01:05:14] and the way he talks about it
[01:05:15] makes it really sound like he's
[01:05:18] involved in the development process,
[01:05:20] he's actively engaged
[01:05:22] and
[01:05:23] he's the first person to call me out
[01:05:26] on the, on the forums again,
[01:05:28] justifiably, I went too hard in the paint,
[01:05:31] but he's, he replies on the forum,
[01:05:33] that's such a great sign
[01:05:35] for a platform of any kind
[01:05:37] that had the literal CEO of
[01:05:38] the company care enough to read
[01:05:42] What had to be like 116th reply
[01:05:44] to that thread and be like, you know what,
[01:05:47] that's not actually accurate. Let me
[01:05:49] let me clarify something.
[01:05:51] So the fact they're still involved.
[01:05:54] So
[01:05:55] again, two weeks ago,
[01:05:57] when I said I was gonna do this segment,
[01:06:00] I have said before
[01:06:01] jokingly that as soon as
[01:06:04] Howie Liu CEO of Airtable
[01:06:05] becomes my best friend,
[01:06:07] I'm quitting the show.
[01:06:08] And then two weeks ago I was watching
[01:06:13] David Siegel's
[01:06:16] interview with Aaron
[01:06:17] on automate all the things and I was like,
[01:06:20] never mind, I want that guy
[01:06:22] to be my best friend.
[01:06:23] And then three days ago,
[01:06:25] are your frenemy
[01:06:27] went too hard in the paint.
[01:06:31] That's one way to get his attention.
[01:06:36] The panic because I was like, wow,
[01:06:40] there's, I had a point
[01:06:42] underneath all of that,
[01:06:43] but it was like way too much like
[01:06:46] I needed to focus. So
[01:06:48] that was like our panic about
[01:06:50] finding out that Howie watched
[01:06:51] Off the Record at
[01:06:52] least once.
[01:06:54] It is so
[01:06:57] again, great sign.
[01:06:58] I have a lot of faith in,
[01:07:00] you know, there's whatever minor
[01:07:02] things about my personal website that,
[01:07:05] you know, I really want to put this in
[01:07:07] and I can't, at the moment,
[01:07:09] you know, total faith
[01:07:10] that it's gonna be there eventually.
[01:07:14] so yeah,
[01:07:16] if I make that transition, I will,
[01:07:20] you know, alert people
[01:07:21] I guess on the BuiltOnAir forums,
[01:07:23] you can see my test
[01:07:24] site already posted this link
[01:07:26] so you can see
[01:07:27] what I've built already in the
[01:07:29] community
[01:07:29] and if I make the transition
[01:07:31] to make this my actual website,
[01:07:33] I will announce that
[01:07:35] and show you know,
[01:07:36] maybe a deep dive later.
[01:07:38] Nice, awesome.
[01:07:40] Thank you Kamille for showing that.
[01:07:45] And we'll end with
[01:07:47] Melanie's comment here,
[01:07:50] be right back,
[01:07:51] gotta go check out the Glide forums,
[01:07:53] that's how everybody.
[01:07:54] So I don't I
[01:07:56] haven't used Glide yet personally,
[01:07:58] but I've been saying
[01:08:00] in my like consulting
[01:08:01] and talking to friends like my friend
[01:08:03] Kamille keeps talking about
[01:08:04] this thing Glide
[01:08:05] and then they look it up and they
[01:08:06] all go, oh my God,
[01:08:08] we got to get in this right now.
[01:08:10] I'm like, I don't know anything about it,
[01:08:11] but you're welcome to start playing
[01:08:13] with it.
[01:08:13] Yeah.
[01:08:15] It gives me the same feeling
[01:08:17] I get with Airtable in that
[01:08:19] it makes me want to
[01:08:20] build something because
[01:08:22] it's such a pleasant experience.
[01:08:23] You're gonna hit walls
[01:08:24] just like you hit walls in Airtable,
[01:08:26] but you're gonna hit different walls and
[01:08:28] you're gonna be like,
[01:08:29] oh wait a minute.
[01:08:29] I could do this thing in Glide,
[01:08:30] but I can't do that thing in Airtable. So
[01:08:33] again, just be aware of what
[01:08:35] its limitations are. And you know,
[01:08:37] you have to be on a certain plan
[01:08:38] to get certain features, yada yada,
[01:08:39] all that kind of stuff.
[01:08:41] Melanie. If you want the drama.
[01:08:43] If the thread is like
[01:08:44] they're talking about CSS capability
[01:08:47] in Glide apps
[01:08:49] And then go through,
[01:08:51] go to like comment 115 or so.
[01:08:54] And then you'll see me up
[01:08:55] here from the Ether
[01:08:57] and go too hard.
[01:08:59] And then literally the next
[01:09:02] reply is the CEO
[01:09:03] being like, no no no
[01:09:06] that's not accurate.
[01:09:08] And then I have to like backtrack hard.
[01:09:11] I haven't returned. I'm scared.
[01:09:15] All right. We'll check that out for today.
[01:09:18] Thank you. Kamille and Rebecca.
[01:09:20] Thanks for coming on the show.
[01:09:22] Always glad to have you on
[01:09:24] and see what you're
[01:09:24] building. Thank you everyone for watching.
[01:09:27] And we will see you next week on.
[01:09:29] BuiltOnAir
[01:09:31] take care.
