Due to API limitations, Duda will not import fields that do not have content in the first 10 rows.

Row Order

When using Airtable collections, the row order is being pulled in randomly due to an API limitation on Airtable's site. We ignore filters or sorting in Airtable.

To pull the row order in the same order that exists in Airtable, including filters and sorting, add the Airtable View name to the example URL that you are using to import their collection. For more information, see Airtable Support.

To add the view, after the example URL is added, add '?view=View Name'. The view name is case sensitive and should be typed exactly how it's written in Airtable.

Warning

Deleting or changing the view name after importing the collection will break the connection.

The following is an example of the URL before adding the view name:

https://api.airtable.com/v0/appbiL1pCyvFcW8WG/Feedback%20Session

The following is an example of the URL after adding the view name:

https://api.airtable.com/v0/appbiL1pCyvFcW8WG/Feedback%20Session?view=Main View

For more information on adding the view name to the URL, see this video.

The next step is to create or convert a Dynamic Page so you can connect it to your newly created Collection.
