Creating listings or directories that allows submissions from users is a great way to build out resources for the community. In this guide, we’ll learn how to set up an approval process in Airtable and only display submissions that have been approved by a member of your team.
 
Here we have a table of Airtable scripts where the community can contribute new ones through an Airtable form. To create an approval process, we’ve created a field called Approved to keep track of the status of each script.
