Getting Airtable Data to Populate Automatically with a Zapier Integration

Remember that game of TELEPHONE? You’d sit in a line with other kids – the first kid would whisper a sentence to the second kid. Only one time – that’s all you got.

Introducing the “Matrix” Block in Airtable

Airtable just released some new features this week and they look to pack a mighty punch. Specifically, I explored the Matrix Block today. Unfortunately, this has nothing to do with Neo, and everything to do with two-dimensional matrices. Think of a table with columns and rows. Well, with some simple base planning, I created my first Matrix Block and shared it with you here.
