Difficulty trying to get the Airtable API Plugin to work

Hi all -

I am new to Bubble and am trying to use the Airtable plugin to display, and eventually modify, data from a table in Airtable.

I follow the instructions and I believe I have the plugin set up properly. Bubble seems to be aware of the various fields/schema of the table and there are no errors.

What I can’t figure out is how to display the data. I create a repeating group. I make the type of content match the table name, the data source is API and looks like “Airtable: tablename”. It allows me to choose constraints and sees the fields, but I’m not using any constraints.

When I preview the page, however, the repeating group is empty. No errors, but no data. I suspected this was just a cosmetic thing but I can’t find anything like that in the source is appears the fields are empty.

However, when I use the preview and I look at the inspect feature at the bottom of the screen, I can see the correct data in that window. In other words, the actual data from Airtable is listed out there, and it all looks correct.

it just wont show up in on the screen! I wonder if I am just not understanding how the repeating group is supposed to be used. I give it a data source, and that’s pretty much all I can find to do. Is there some field/cell level setting I need to think about?

Any help much appreciated!!

thanks !!

Silly question maybe, but have you added a text field inside of your repeating group that maps to one of the fields from Airtable?

Here’s a repeating group (you can see a text field in there):

…and then the text field inside of the repeating group:

Repeating groups require items put inside of them. If you haven’t done that, give it a try.

If you have, maybe share some screenshots or other info so we can see what you’re up to.
