3. Configure the integration

Set the conditions, then:

  1. Choose one of the three actions we provide.
  2. Type in the name of the table and the view to update.
  3. If the action is Update or Upsert, add some fields to match the row to update (similar to how filters work in Airtable).
  4. Add the fields you want to sync to Airtable.
  5. Save the integration by clicking on "Connect".

This example below uses the Update action, and updates rows in Airtable that contain the page link in column A.
