Url of Interface Page for a record

Thank Kuovonne for creating this content!


When sending internal email notifications, it can be handy to include a link to the record in question. If you have a beautiful interface page, you want to include a link to the record in the interface, not the Data section of the base.


Understanding the url for a record in an interface

You can get the url for a record in an interface when viewing the interface page in a web browser (versus the desktop app)/
If your interface page has only one record picker, the url for a record in the interface page looks like this:
The first part of the url before the ? contains the base ID appXXXXXXXXXXXXXX followed by the page ID of the interface page pagXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
The text after the ? identifies the ID of the record picker element (about five alphanumeric characters) and the ID of the record that is picked recXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
If you are editing the interface, you may also see /edit in the url before the ?. You can ignore this part when building the url for the record, as users will not be editing the interface page.

Minimal formula url

If you want a minimal formula, you can use the following format:
"https://airtable.com/appXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/pagXXXXXXXXXXXXXX?F2o88=" & RECORD_ID()

Formula url with comments

You can also use a longer formula that identifies the individual portions of the formula and lets you include the name of the interface page.
IF("base id", "https://airtable.com/appXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/"),
IF("interface page name", "pagXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"),
IF("record picker", "?F2o88=" & RECORD_ID())
