How to setup automatic more than 300-800 different Boards
I have about 300-800 records in Airtable with lots of text, pictures and videos, pptx. I want to put them into a workbook in Mural.
I would like to set up a template for them and each record should have its own mural board. The templates all have the same design.
The texts in the records are different.
As an example:
Record 1: in the cell Risks the contents a, b, c, de
Record 2: in the cell Risks the contents c, x, y
Now I want to set up an automation that automatically copies the boards from the template and changes the corresponding cells and texts.I want to share these boards with my students.
I don't want the sticky notes to be unsorted in the areas, but that the max. 20 sticky notes are sorted in two 10 rows at the bottom.
Now I have some questions:
1. i have seen that the sticky notes IDs stay the same when copying the board.
Is this also the case for texts? The export - right mouse button - to a CSV does not result in any values. What is the easiest way to get the IDs of the texts?
2. i thought the easiest way is to create a board with the right design. These few hundred sticky notes can then be easily identified by the text of the sticky note and the ID.
I would then search in a routine for a text e.g. Risk1 (the first sticky note on the left) and the corresponding ID and then swap the text in a sticky note update.
What do you think of this? What are the arguments against it?
- Well, now it gets difficult.
I'm pretty good with RegEx and Keyboard Maestro on the Mac, but the last time I learned a programming language was 35 years ago.
4 I would run the program locally on the Mac, if it's Python.
But I'm not sure about OAuth, I don't know anything about that.
What tips do you have? I have read a lot, but am still without good direction.
Thanks for the beginner questions
