How to create an Airtable to Webflow sync in PowerImporter

3 Checking your sync logs

Once you have created and run your first sync, you can check your logs to see how things went.

LOGS WHEN TESTING & REVIEWING
Testing and reviewing enables you to run the sync without calling the API - it means you can test it and see if it will work.
Your log will show whether there were any issues, which would show in the "Invalid" column.
The screenshot below shows a fully successful test.

- If you want more detail on each webflow collection item, you can click on "View details".
- You can filter the logs to view errors only for example, or warnings only.
- You can even search by Airtable record ID or Webflow item ID/item slug.
This is particularly useful for syncs with dozens/hundreds of items.

LOGS WHEN RUNNING THE SAME SYNC AGAIN

Your next sync will show items in different categories:
Keeps:
Items existed already in Webflow and remained unchanged
Updates: Existing items in Webflow were updated because one or several data fields changed
Creates: New items created in Webflow
Deletes: Deleted items in Webflow because not present in the data anymore
Mapping errors: this is validation done by PI before calling the API.
API errors: Errors that came back after calling the API.

The categories will only show if there are relevant items in there.

The screenshot below shows a new sync with 1 updated field, the 9 others remained unchanged.
