Set the Webflow trigger as “New item added”

Add the Webflow trigger to initiate your playbook's actions before adding an item.

To do this, click "Add trigger" in your playbook. Choose the "New item added" trigger from the Webflow options. It will enable your playbook to automatically identify newly added items and trigger necessary actions.

If you have yet to connect your Webflow account to Relay, a prompt will guide you through the connection process.


Add the “Add record to table” in Airtable

Integrate the Airtable automation to instantly add records from Webflow collections.

Select "Add Step" and search for the "Add record to table" automation. Then, choose the table where you want to add a record - let's say it's the "Collections" table. Once you've selected the table, click on all the relevant fields and fill in the necessary details, such as Default SKU, Description, ID, Draft or not, Name, Product Type, SKU properties, Shippable or not, Slug, and text Category.

If you still need to connect your Airtable account to Relay, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Make sure to allow the necessary permissions for Relay to add records through your Airtable account.


Activate your playbook

Activating your playbook is the last step. Once you turn it on, the playbook automatically adds Airtable records when new items are added to a Webflow collection without manual intervention.

To activate your playbook, click the toggle button in the header. Before starting it, we recommend running a test to ensure all the steps work seamlessly together.
