Airtable can be used as a collection for generating Dynamic Pages. For more information on collections, see Define a Collection for Dynamic Pages.
Airtable collections have the following limitations:
Collection Number per Site
Collection name character limit
Field name character limit
Page item URL
To create an Airtable collection:
In the left panel, click Content, click Collections, and then click + New Collection.
Enter your Airtable API credentials.
In Airtable, select the table you want to use as your collection. This takes you to the Airtable API documentation.
Under Authentication, copy the example link.
Return to FantasticStay and paste it in the field under your API credentials.
Click Import Fields.
Define the correct data type for each field.
The following table outlines the supported Airtable fields, the corresponding FantasticStay fields, and examples.

Due to API limitations, FantasticStay will not import fields that do not have content in the first 10 rows.
When using Airtable collections, the row order is being pulled in randomly due to an API limitation on Airtable's site. We ignore filters or sorting in Airtable.
To pull the row order in the same order that exists in Airtable, including filters and sorting, add the Airtable View name to the example URL that you are using to import their collection. For more information, see Airtable Support.
To add the view, after the example URL is added, add
'?view=View Name'. The view name is case sensitive and should be typed exactly how it's written in Airtable.
Deleting or changing the view name after importing the collection will break the connection.
The following is an example of the URL before adding the view name:

The next step is to create or convert a Dynamic Page so you can connect it to your newly created collection.
