Airtable integration is not matching fields automatically

    I have 70 questions, and it seems i have to map each one manually, even though they have identical field names (because i created the airtable base using the jotform). Am I missing something, shouldlnt it be able to automatically match fields, and just have me check them?

    Hi Bellinger,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. I understand you'd like it so that each field are mapped automatically when you set it up with Airtable integration. Unfortunately, this feature is not available yet as the form wouldn't know which fields you'd like to map with which on your Airtable system, even if the names are the same. Setting up the integration requires that each field are mapped to your desired match. If you can share your username with us, we can create a feature request on your behalf so our developers can consider this feature in the future.

    Reach out again if you need any help.
