One great use of Webflow forms is collecting contact information, which you can automatically send to Airtable, where you can display it in a way that makes sense to you. This is a great way to learn how you can connect with potential customers and visitors to your site. Luckily, you don't need any custom code. Visitors can also use a contact form to contact you if you design it so that it has a text area to write a message in.
A Note on Forms
Beware of trying to create one form to rule them all. Normally, it makes sense to have different Webflow forms with different elements for the information you are trying to gather from different groups, so you can pick the form elements and element settings that best suit the particular use case, and you are not overburdened with submission data.
How to Send Data From Webflow Forms to Airtable
Now, you're ready to send Webflow form data to Airtable. Note that you will need to be on the Airtable Plus or a higher plan for this to work.
First, you'll need to connect your Webflow account with Airtable using the Webflow-Airtable integration tool. Once connected, you can simply select the form fields you want to send and choose an action, such as insert or update, in order to sync your data with Airtable.
You can also configure other settings like field mapping and actions for synced records, so be sure to explore all of the style options available to get the most out of this powerful integration tool. And with just a few clicks, your data will be seamlessly synced between Webflow and Airtable, helping you improve efficiency and streamline your workflow for even better results!
Detailed instructions are below:
Design Your Webflow Form Settings
If you want to send Webflow form data to Airtable, you'll first need to create forms and configure the design settings on the Webflow site.
This involves selecting a form template, deciding on key fields, and setting up project settings and required fields as needed. Additionally, you may also want to consider adding conditional logic or other advanced features like file uploads.
Users of your form will submit information into the form fields you set up, so make sure to create input fields for all the information you need. Add any form element you plan to use at this stage.
Generate the Webhook Trigger in Webflow
The next step is to go to the "integrations" tab in Webflow. Scroll to the bottom and find "Webhooks," then select "form submission" as the trigger type from the drop-down menu. Where it says "Webhook URL," you will need to put the Airtable URL. You can set up your Airtable grid now, but make sure to leave Webhooks open in another tab.
Set up the Airtable Table and Get a Webhook URL
Next, in Airtable, create a field for every field in the form. You can use any templates you like, but the function of this Airtable grid is to hold your form results. Normally, it makes sense to use the text field setting but make the field type match what the Webflow form user submits.
Once your Airtable grid is set up, go to "Automations" in the top right of the screen. Click "add new automation" and make the trigger event "when webhook is received."
This will trigger Airtable to automatically create a URL.
Copy the URL that appears on the right-hand side of the screen under "set up." Go back to Webflow and paste it into the space for Webhook URL.
Test the Form Submission
Now, publish the Webflow page that contains the form, navigate to the form, and fill it out with test data. Then go back to Airtable and click "run test" on the right. The test should run successfully.
Map Form Submissions to Airtable
Now, still in Airtable, click "add action" then "create record." Then, on the right, select your table and choose every form field you want to populate.
Next, click the small blue button on the side and map the fields to each other, telling the software where each part of the Webflow form submission should go in your Airtable grid.
Now when you look at your grid, you should see that the form data populated your Airtable grid. Name your Webflow and turn it on, and you are good to go.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Embed a Form in Webflow?

When you are finished making any necessary edits, be sure to save and close your project. Your form will now be fully formed and ready for use on your website or other online platform!
How Many Forms Can You Have on a Webflow Site?
Form submissions are an essential part of any website. Whether you need to gather feedback from users or collect information for marketing purposes, webforms provide a convenient and simple way to get the data that you need.
However, not all websites have the same form submission capabilities. The number of form submissions you can receive on unhosted sites or free accounts is capped at 10 total submissions. If you have reached this limit, you will need to upgrade your site plan to continue receiving form submissions. This can be done through Webflow by selecting one of their paid plans that match your needs and budget.
