Im using the http node to retrieve data and write it to airtable but writing the data to airtable is very slow, only about 1 record is added every second, is there any way to speed this up?
It depends on how much data you are writing and the network connection. We don’t run Airtable requests in batches so if you had 100 items it would be 100 api calls that need to be made I think moving to batches may make it a bit quicker but there will still be a bit of a delay.
How can I move to batches?
As our node doesn’t support it you would need to make the api calls to Airtable using the HTTP Request assuming that Airtable has a batch / bulk option.
