Integrate Tally with Airtable

Airtable combines the power of a database with the familiarity of a spreadsheet. It's a fast and flexible way to create tables and keep track of anything, from sales leads to vacation planning to inventory management.
With the new integration between Tally and Airtable you can save responses to your Tally form as new records in your Airtable database.
The Airtable integration is available for free to all Tally users. Airtable has paused granting access to their metadata API. While waiting for access, this integration is in Beta and requires a couple of manual steps.
