How to move a base from one workspace to another on Airtable
If you want to migrate your projects and collections from one workspace to another, your bases are on Airtable. In this way, there’s no need to copy or import your projects between different workspaces.
You can move your bases whether you’re using the Airtable app on your phone or computer’s web browser. Follow our quick guide below to learn how.

Please note that collaborators from the old workspace who isn’t a member of the new workspace won’t have access to the base after moving it. However, Anyone that’s a member of both workspaces retains their access.
