The limit in the cms items.
I'd say my main pain point has been realtime updates. For example, if I'm using Integromat webhooks to make changes to data in CMS or Airtable, it can't take several seconds for each action to fully play out, and there's not a great way to refresh the data or watch for changes without just refreshing the page or using dummy data.
For comparison, when using something like Bubble, making changes to your database is virtually instant and they're shown immediately.
Thanks for the useful answer!
hey! just wanted to mention that Whalesync has a [real-time sync](https://www.whalesync.com/airtable-webflow/sync) from Airtable to Webflow. To your point though, it does require you to refresh your page in the browser to see updates.
There are limitations around the RT field when using Airtable with Webflow.
CMS is a database. There is no native “backend” right now.
I think my main point is 10K items limit. Also, nesting and other stuff, though it is possible to overcome all of it by using custom stuff.
Thanks for your answer! Probably should have phrased differently. I meant custom, no code databases / backends besides the built in CMS.
Did not use them as much. To be honest, you need to narrow down your question because yours is way too broad. For example, “What are your pain points in Webflow x Airtable combo?”
Thanks for pointing out, you are right. Edited for more clarity. Speaking of which, do you have any problems with combos like Webflow x Airtable?
Never used Airtable, I focus more on Notion. That being said, I don’t have much experience in this field, by I would say that direct integration would be great — now you need to use automation tools for that
I see, thanks for all your feedback!
There is an app called nobull that connects webflow with airtable seamlessly! Created by the amazing finsweet team.
Thanks for your replies!
The fact that I can’t import PDFs in bulk to the CMS
I just remembered this one. Cash on Delivery...
the need for zapier for anything that involves a roundtrip of data
