At On2Air, we’re focused on ensuring companies protect their data with our premium Airtable backups app, On2Air Backups.

Because of this, the On2Air app used in this tutorial has been shut down. We recommend Documint or DocsAutomator for Airtable documents.

Here’s the big Google/On2Air/Airtable update you’ve been waiting for!


You can now use On2Air Docs for Airtable to automatically create documents in Google Docs, Google Slides, or Google Sheets using your Airtable data!
