Good afternoon ME community,
I’ve been noodling on a problem and I wondered if anyone in the community has solved it already?
When a user updates an Airtable (AT) record through a MiniExtensions (ME) Client portal / ME form, do you know of “pre-update hook” or action I could programatically use?
Basically, I’d like to capture/utilise the data in an AT record (for logging and analysis), before it’s updated, however, the UPDATE action in Airtable only fires after the data has been written which loses the previous data.
- User updates a ME Form and presses Save
- ME calls the pre-update hook (which would be some code), awaits response (maybe shows message, “Working on it”)
- On success, ME continues and updates the record in AT
Yes, this comes with some risk, but presently I’ve got various other workarounds for maintaining the data before it’s updated, but they’re a little messy. A “pre-update” action or hook would smarten the whole thing up.
Thanks in advance,
