Assistance Needed to Transfer Data Automatically via the Airtable to the Google Sheets

Hello Everyone,

I’m relatively new on MiniExtensions and would like some advice on how to automate data transfer from Google Sheets to Airtable.

Here’s my current setup: I oversee a small company where Airtable is used to track sales, inventory, and customer data. Although Airtable is an excellent tool for organising info, our accounting team finds that Google Sheets works better for creating reports and conducting analysis.

I’m searching for a means to have our Airtable data automatically sync with Sheets by Google on a frequent schedule to save manual data entry.

Although I’m not quite sure where to begin, I’ve heard that MiniExtensions provides features that could be useful in this situation.

I need assistance with the following in particular:

Configuring Auto-Sync: What are the steps involved in establishing a daily or even real-time auto-sync that updates Google Sheets and Airtable? :thinking: Are there any particular MiniExtensions extensions that are capable of handling this? :thinking:

Managing Huge Data Sets: There are several tables having thousands of records in our Airtable base. When synchronising big data sets, are there any restrictions or suggestions I have to be aware of to guarantee a dependable and effective process? :thinking:

Error Handling: What takes place in the event that a sync process error occurs? Are there any tools offered by MiniExtensions to report errors or automatically try unsuccessful syncs again? :thinking:

Security Concerns: Given that MiniExtensions handles critical corporate data, what security procedures are in place to guarantee privacy and security of data while syncing process.

I also checked this :point_right: https://community.airtable.com/t5/other-questions/sync-data-with-google-sheets/td-p/sap

I would be grateful for any guidance, suggestions or detailed instructions from those that have established a comparable procedure. Any suggestions or different methods that could help this process go better are appreciated.

Thank you :pray: in advance.

Hey there and welcome to the forum!

Unfortunately, we don’t currently offer an automated process for this. Would you require one-way or two-way synchronization between Airtable and Google Sheets (i.e. just from Airtable to Google Sheets, or in both directions)?

One extension we currently offer that could be helpful in your case would be the CSV Exporter, which would allow you to pick the fields you want from your table to then export to a CSV file to download via a URL. Each time you access the URL, the current data is pulled from Airtable and a CSV file is downloaded. Perhaps there is a way to automate downloading and then importing the file into Google Sheets using another tool.

For any questions regarding security protocols, please see this help article.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or require further assistance. I’d be happy to help!
