Data Fetcher is a free Airtable app to fetch data into Airtable bases from different APIs. It supports some popular platforms out of the box, and you can even pull data from custom REST API sources as well. After adding it to a base, you just need to specify the API URL with the API parameters and then get the data in the spreadsheet. After you have imported the data, you can just do whatever you want.
Here is the list of supported sources that it has for now. If you want to pull data from these sources, then you can do that in a few clicks.
- Facebook Ads
- Google Analytics
- YouTube Analytics
- API Flash
- Google Maps
These are sources that are preconfigured and you just need to go through the authentication to start pulling data from these. Before pulling the data, you can preview it and then import it in the base. But do note that before pulling the data, you need to configure the target sheet accordingly. So, make sure you map the data fields correctly before running the app.
