Airtable Software


 

Airtable is a cloud-based project management solution targeting small to medium-sized businesses as well as departments within larger companies. This software focuses primarily on data organization and collaboration.

This software uses a spreadsheet format to organize data. Related data can be linked together; for example, contacts can be linked to their companies or inventory items can be linked to their vendors.

Airtable is compatible with multiple devices. On desktop computers, users see data in a spreadsheet format, while on mobile devices, data can viewed as tappable cards. On both devices, users can add and remove data, attach files and share tables.

Airtable integrates services such as Dropbox, Box, Evernote and Google Drive. Tables in this software are shareable, and users can track who is making changes to documents when. A chat tool is also included, which allows users to chat each other while working on tables.

Airtable was founded in 2012 and is offered worldwide. This software is priced on a per user per month basis. A mobile app is available for iOS.

I think it can be a great collaborative tool to get things done.

Pros

It has several features and when best used can do away with the need for any other softwares. Very easy to collaborate.

Cons

Difficult to figure all the features and applications. Too many to handle. No checklists available.

Ease-of-use

Customer Support

Airtable was a useful piece of free cloud-based software for our start-up in our early days, and we used it as a very basic CRM. As our needs matured, especially regarding management of customers, it made a significant amount of sense for us to switch to Salesforce for it's robust, platform based system.

Pros

I loved how simple it was to set up, and that it was cloud based.

Cons

I would really have liked to be able to share record cards between different bases, and reference specific cards easily in different tables within the same base. So, for example, if I wanted to create a separate table to track meetings between different members of our team and our contacts, I would have liked a way to enter their contact cards into a record without needing to go to the trouble of creating a field in each table.

Advice to Others

It's like google sheets on steroids, absolutely give it a shot.

I like how it is basically just an excel spreadsheet but visually so appealing. It has helped with our projects organization methods.

Cons

I wish that other bases could connect. I also think that the table linking ability needs some work, I find myself wanting to use that feature but then it doesn't totally deliver.

I actually use Airtable to track and manage potential and scheduled jobs for clients. I am able to share it with my employees and give them different access features. Much better than trying to work with Microsoft Access or Excel. Just overall easier to work with.

Pros

Easy to use. Affordable. Sharable. Both online and app.

Cons

Does not have a drag and drop feature into different tabs. Does not have a mobile calendar view yet.

Advice to Others

Overall great quality

As a consultant leading engagements for a Fortune 50 company, I recommend Airtable as an excellent organizational tool. It scales well for many projects. So you can use it to organize, manage, collaborate, and schedule whatever you'd like. Try it out yourself.

Pros

Ability to create, organize, and manage a lot of information in one place. I also appreciate the ease of use and ability to connect database items to a calendar and share with a multitude of people.

Cons

Airtable could still benefit from user-experience enhancements, but they have done a great job simplifying potentially complex information management.

Airtable is an awesome product that our business didn't know we needed, until we tried it. We use it to catalog a lot of different information, from software company assets to hiring projects. The ability to link information and cross connect data points is invaluable. Using spreadsheets or project management programs falls short when you're dealing with important data. We've enjoyed their continuous improvement and creative expansion of data entry possibilities (from URLs to images, etc.)

Airable can be hard to wrap your head around at first. Is it spreadsheet software? Project management software? A visual relational database tool? An Evernote or Trello replacement?

Yes. To all of that. Sort of.

Visually, Airtable resembles spreadsheet software, with columns and rows of sortable data. But you can't crunch numbers or produce quarterly earnings statements with Airtable. Airtable is a database management tool, so you can use it to manage anything you would put in a database. But because of the visually-oriented approach Airtable takes, that means go way beyond organizing contacts or saving recipes.

I currently use Airtable to:

- manage a year long project with multiple sub-projects and team members who collaborate via Airtable
- keep track of home projects, including reference imagery and shopping lists for each project
- organize donors to my non-profit project, including reminders of when I should get in touch with people and how they contributed to the project
- catalogue home design and architectural inspiration

Like Trello and Evernote, the possibilities of Airtable expand the more you use it. It's elegantly designed, ruggedly engineered and fun to use.

Pros

- Elegant UI design
- Intuitive UX (user experience) design
- Flexible and adaptable to nearly any workflow
- Collaboration with team members
- It's free

Cons

- The collaboration is great but could be improved with chat/conversations that operate more like Google Docs comments

Airtable has saved my bacon more than once. So many times, I looked at a spreadsheet and wondered "is this the best way to organize this information? what if I want other people to only choose from three options to avoid misspellings and mistakes?" Never again! Airtable is the "spreadsheet" I never knew I wanted until I found it. The layout is pleasing, the functions are simple yet complex, and I haven't run out of space yet! Highly recommended to anyone who wants to do more with their spreadsheets without the hassle of googling excel functions every other minute.

Like many new internet SaaS apps, Airtable is intensely focused on delivering a clean and focused user experience. This means that features take a while to get rolled out and it is not even on par with google sheets or other spreadsheets like smartsheets. However, it is a database and it does some pretty cool things. It's also free for most users who don't need a lot of storage space on the system and have databases with fewer than 1200 records each.

For us, it's great for staying organized and has pushed us to keep better track of events and the costs associated with each of them. The form functionality is great for getting staff input in the field.

We look forward to seeing what they will add next!

Pros

Great 1-1 Support Options + Use Cases on Blog
Really Active and Helpful forum and 3rd party developers
Database for dummies type help text
Strong suite of options and continual development

Cons

No Print or View Mode that allows formatting of entries on a PDF or web interface
No granular permissions control
Can't write math formulas in cells directly, need to have multiple columns and then sum/multiply them.

Advice to Others

Don't be shy about getting on the forums and asking for help. Developers are also interested in helping you with your unique use case/will point to others who have done the same.

Airtable is a first of a kind database management tool that is simple enough for anyone to pick up and start using right away and yet powerful enough to provide useful solutions to small businesses.

The user interface alone is reason enough to try out Airtable. Playing around with the options and creating custom apps for myself has been a breez. Navigation is intuitive and consistent.

Everything about this tool is extremely polished ¿especially for a newer application! Clearly, the developers did not rush this product to the market and they care a great deal about the end user experiance!

Airtable is off to a great start, but I t will be very interesting to see how well they are accepted by everyone still struggling their way through spread sheets...

*Also their customer service is first rate. I've asked a few questions (via their great in app messaging service) and every time I recieved a reply from a representative within minutes!
