User edit from Softr for only specific field of a table


Here is my request :

On a softr page, a connected user could edit information which would modify at the same time a Airtable table. But the user could see only specific column of the Airtable table , and not all the columns of the table.

For example : a jobboard

The candidate is on a page called “personal information” which only concerns his personal information such as “first name” “name” and “phone number”.

In Airtable, one record = one candidate on the table, but each record has maybe 50 columns with a lot of information but with a different nature.

On his page “personal information”, the user should see only the column concerning “first name” “name” and “phone number” , and not everything.

Right now the best way to do this would be to split the table into two tables, and link the records.

This is much needed for me as well!

@Alexbvl that should be the case with almost all new blocks. What block are you using ?

Thank you. I tried but it doesn’t work efficiently , because it is quite complicated to manage after in Airtable. I would like to have one record for one candidate, with every information. I need to create one key (ID) for each record , for each table , it’s quite a mess :slight_smile:

Hello Artur,

I use the block “list details 1”.

If you think it is possible now, could you please contact me ( or organise a quick visio to show me.

If you think it is not possible, do you know when it will be developed ?

@Alexbvl first lets try a DM, can you send me a short loom showing what’s user seeing that should not be visible ?

How can I send you a private message ?
I could not find it on this website

Hi @Alexbvl :slightly_smiling_face: Please check out the workaround here. Would it be helpful for your case?

I also shared this one via DM Setting up Edit Permissions

You can create user groups and add define which fields are editable
