Create a Database

A quick approach to getting your project up and running is to create a database from a template or make a copy of an existing database from Airtable.

Add a new database

You can create a database in any group from scratch. To create a new blank database within a group:

  1. Click ‘+ Create new’
  2. Select ‘Database’ from the dropdown option
  3. Enter a name for the new database. When you create a database, be sure to give it a descriptive name. You can subsequently change the descriptive name as needed.

You can alternatively add a database from a template or Import a database from Airtable.

Understanding how to import your data gives context, ensuring that you can take action on it once you bring it into Baserow. Learn about the fields to understand which can be imported into Baserow.

  • In the right sidebar, click the icon next to a database.
  • Select ‘Rename database’ and enter a new name for the database

Duplicate a database

To duplicate a database, you need to hover over the table, and click on the three dots icon next to a database. Select the ‘Duplicate database’ option from the dropdown. You can view the database and table duplication progress in the left sidebar.
