Having redundancies in place is the best way to take action against unwanted data-loss. It’s a frightening thing to consider that one wrong click of the mouse could wipe out your database (and everything inside it)! So how do you back this data up?

There is a manual way to create the history of your database in Airtable. As part of the software, there’s a ‘history’ option in the upper right corner that will occasionally take a snapshot of your data. This is definitely the first place to start to try to recover a previous version of your data.

But, sometimes you might want a more robust solution – something like an automated database backup procedure.

In this video I walk through the steps for setting up an automation that backs up your Airtable data to a Google Sheet. In it, we use the following software:

  1. Airtable
  2. Zapier
  3. On2Air
  4. Google Sheets

It’s worth mentioning that this does require a robust package of software to pull off and it’s not something a data-lite or new business would be likely to adopt. That said, it’s important to know that you have the option – since many businesses live and die by their ability to maintain their data.
