How to Use

Use the Quick Bar to pull up a list of message templates you define in an Airtable. You can add, modify, and delete templates in the Airtable, which will automatically update the PixieBrix sidebar.


Airtable: You will need an Airtable with some templates to start. You must follow the format below, with the word "Question" in column A, the actual question in column B, and the answer in column C.

Here's an Example Airtable with the correct format
