Migrating Airtable tables?

As a newbie just taking a look at this platform - was wondering if anyone had experience migrating over from Airtable?

Hi Hal,

Yes, it is possible. First, you need to export your airtable as CSV:

Make sure the downloaded file does not have spaces or special symbols. In my case, the CSV is called Applicants.csv.

After that, login to Backendless Console and switch to Manage > Import. You will need to browse to your CSV by clicking this button:

Once the file is selected, click the IMPORT button. You will be presented with a screen where you can select the data types for each column. This is what it looks like in my case:

Select the data types for each column - you should know what each one is and then click FINALIZE IMPORT. Backendless will process your data and once imported, you should see the data in the DATA screen. Here’s mine:
