Airtable Software


 

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

The system 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 be 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.

Pros

It's like spreadsheets, but it doesn't suck! It's easy to use and very dynamic! Also has a Form function which to me makes this program 100% more useful. Also the blocks available are very useful.

Cons

Unfortunately the two parts that make this program so useful are limited in use. The form doesn't even allow for non-question sections, like a description text block and the blocks are only available to people who subscribe to the pro version. Great for businesses but for a casual user it makes the program a lot less desirable.

Supercharged Spreadsheets

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support
N/A
Value for Money

Airtable is a powerful tool, much more so than Excel or Google Sheets, and much more elegant than Smartsheets. That being said, the cost is prohibitive for some to take full advantage. Thankfully, the free version is sufficiently functional to still win out over the competitors.

Pros

Airtable makes the chore of spreadsheet work so much easier and more enjoyable. It offers colored options, icons (stars, etc.), simplified and powerful formulas, a variety of organizational views (grids, kanban, etc.), and highly customizable views for sharing. The ability to track row histories and communicate with colleagues is a huge plus as well.

Cons

Airtable is powerful, and certainly worth a financial investment, but the current pay scale per user (and how it defines users — anyone with access) is too costly for many smaller organizations, especially non-profits.

The Evolution Of The Spreadsheet

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

Airtable is a refreshing new look at what spreadsheets can be. It is great for organizations with varying degrees of user experiences with spreadsheets. And if your organization uses spreadsheets quite extensively, then this might be a great alternative.

As mentioned in Cons, the proprietary nature of Airtable means that if you need to keep a standalone copy in a file format, you will not be able to do so. You can import those current spreadsheets, but once manipulated and modified in Airtable, you must continue using it. So, archival files are not possible. Something to consider, as some enterprise environment do like to keep electronic files locally archived for attachment to specific documentations. Airtable might not be that solution.

Pros

Spreadsheets are great because of their flexibility. But most of its power lies behind a vast library of functions that users must have a good understanding about its syntax and how to use it. Add to that the fact that they are not exactly pretty to look at. The solution lies with Airtable. Coined as part spreadsheet and part database, it provides a new way of displaying vital information without all the hassles of setting up a spreadsheet.

For starters, Airtable offers a vast array of templates and layouts to choose from. If you are proficient, or the templates simply do not provide you with the necessary layout, you can start one from scratch. Maybe even create your own template.

Airtable is like a high performance spreadsheet with a serious upgrade on its user interface. Even the user experience is something quite amazing. YOu add, remove or modify the columns and configure them to accept the data you need.

It does all a spreadsheet can do, except that its coolest feature is its ability to go from a grid appearance, like your typical spreadsheet, to a form appearance, which resembles more of a database.

Airtable offers a wide array of functionality in its free subscription level. Upgrades offer more customization options that enhance the functionality and appearance of your table. And to make the transition from regular old boring spreadsheets to Airtable, they offer importing of your data to start off with.

Cons

It is much easier than your typical spreadsheet, but if you are a true spreadsheet power user, you may find a bit of a lack in its functionality. Again, only if you are a power user, which most of us are really not when it comes to everything spreadsheets can do. There are limited hover over hints for the buttons and fields, so you need to really click on them to find out what they are used for. Novice spreadsheet users will still find a similar learning curve with Airtable, but because the core functionalities are visible from the top ribbon, it does make it just a bit easier to use. But, remember, there will still be a slight learning curve, especially with more advance features.

Please note, it does well at importing those current spreadsheets, but Airtable is proprietary and online, and does not do well if you need to export it into a document for archival purposes.

This is how spreadsheets should be since the beginning. It's amazing how you can change the view based on the column or the author. I love how they have so many templates added every day.

A Stunningly Beautiful Visual Database

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

I would absolutely recommend this for many projects, it is fun and easy to set up and use. Perhaps keep the budget analysis for a typical spreadsheet or be prepared to deep dive into the documentation and creative solutions if you want to use Airtable for finances.

Pros

This database allows you to visualize, organize and track the progress of various projects in your personal and professional life. It is fully collaborative, so optimized for group or individual projects, complete with permissions.

Rather than staring at rows of spreadsheet numbers and charcters, you can grasp information within seconds given the graphically oriented database.

There are numerous templates, designs and case studies to help you compile your information in the best way possible. The customer support is excellent and there are tons of tutorials on their Medium blog and on YouTube to help you get the most out of this product. It is fully customizeable for the info and layout you wish to maintain. The pricing is reasonable and the standard free version has great functionality.

Cons

Although it is an awesome database, it is NOT a replacement for Excel for several functions. It resembles a spreadsheet, but you dont have full control over each cell, to format it as you wish. The formulas seem limited or more complicated in comparison to a traditional spreadsheet. You can' truly link databases or info between or within tables freely.

Manipulating numbers becomes a bit awkward in some circumstances.

However, these limitations may possibly improve with time and future upgrades. The more you understand how the software works, you may discover different ways to accomplish your functions on this new platform.

- Incredibly easy to use. Works well on all browsers.
- Can customize all of my needs within one table, or choose to move them to different work zones.
- LOVE that you can share and collaborate, but it isn't a true spreadsheet (unless you want it to be!)
- SO wonderful for multiple projects and having everything in one place.

Cons

Honestly.... there isn't anything to say here. I don't like to not have any improvements, so maybe the thing that I would recommend is the ability to click on a column and sort immediately from column instead of writing a "if this than that" formula.

Pros

I was invited to work on a project with Airtable recently. With no previous knowledge, I was skeptical of trying something new for project management. After working for a few months with the software I was pleasantly surprised by the wide range of templates and ease of use. Great product for collaboration among small and larger teams. Would recommend to anyone looking for another tool to make team projects run a bit smoother.

Cons

Feels like a mix of a few other project management software, but hard to figure out which ones specifically. Little bit of a learning curve at first, but once you're comfortable it's a lot easier for sharing projects.

Pros

Ease of use is a major pro for airtable - i personally despise spreadsheets and find working in airtable on a daily basis a joy. It is incredibly easy to toggle between types of columns, and the variety of types of fields (check boxes, dates, text, hyperlink, etc.) allowed my team to create a visually powerful table of our products in a very short amount of time.

Cons

For the particular application my team uses airtable, we have found no cons of significance. The one area which is limited would be collaboration and commenting with other users, but given this is a spreadsheet tool this was understandable.

My overall experience is super smooth and it makes my life 10,000 times easier. I can add and maintain waves of prospects and clients as they enter my funnel and all the data is in a centralized location. That way if it gets too busy, I don't have to worry about losing track of new leads. I have recommended countless people to Airtable and will continue to do so.

Ease of use and the ability to quickly access and modify records. It's like a CRM to go.

Pros

It's really intuitive and flexible. We use it at my office for a wide range of tasks/departments/skill sets and everyone has a really easy time using it. When we were setting up our initial base there were so many options of ways to execute certain tasks, so it was easy to do some trial and error to see what worked best for us.

The custom views are also a game changer. Being able to toggle through Kanban/Calendar/Grid view all on the same platform makes this product amazing. Why use a mix of Google Cal / Trello / Google sheets when you can stay in the same app and have everything integrate together seamlessly? It's a dream!

Cons

There are a few key features Airtable could add that would be really helpful for more in-depth timelines and project management. My wishlist would be adding a gantt view, having the ability to create milestone/dependencies, and the ability to set holidays as black-out periods that you can't book over. It would also be nice if some of the filters were a bit more advanced (right now you can only do "or" statements and "and" statements, but not both). But Im sure these features will come with time, and there are easy hacks/workarounds now.

One last thing, make the mobile app better! This is one area where Trello is crushing the competition compared to Airtable.

We literally run our $500,000/year custom apparel & accessory small business (24 Hour Tees) exclusively with Airtable (and many other excellent third-party tools that play nicely with Airtable) #BusinessIntegrations #BusinessHacking

Pros

We are thrilled with Airtable and it is the only way we start out a new business idea!

When we need to track data for new businesses, tracking everything a business can track (customer info, transaction details, service tickets, timesheets, profits & losses, etc.), we choose Airtable because we love the convenience it provides our team!

#WeFeelLikeDatabaseManagers #NotReallyButClose

Cons

In its current version, Airtable is a bit on the consumer side...

If Airtable added the following features I believe more businesses would use it exclusively as their business database:
- Linking Records Between Bases
- Allowing Commenting via the API
- Better internal (templated) CRM Management (User Front Front End - Possible GUI interface like your 'form' tool)
- Webhooks from specific views

Airtable is great when you need to look for certain features over a larger body of information. The filters that are used are extremely helpful. I used it to register new students and it made contacting them extremely easy. Overall great product for organization.

Pros

I love this software, I like how you can create filters for what you are looking for. You can also create new fields for people to enter their information. I also like how easy it is to use. I was able to share the link created with everyone who needed it. I was able to sign up a bunch of people for my organization.

Cons

When other people are using the same table as you and they apply a filter, the filter then changes what you are looking for. It only works best when one person is using it and applies a filter or when multiple people are using it and no one applies a filter. I have to change the way I have the information laid out to do the work I need when multiple people use it.

I am satisfied with airtable. The free plan can still do a lot of things.

Pros

This software can display a lot of data in different formats that facilitate the understanding of the data. Don't get bored with the endless amount of rows and columns, use airtable to display the data more friendly.

Cons

I need to pay to unlock features. Of course, nothing is free, but I wish they had a different pricing plan.

Airtable has been a wonderful resource for us in that it has enabled all members of our team to have access to the information they need in real time instead of waiting for documents to be emailed. It also helps that we have been able to store all of our important databases in the same location for review instead of saving them in multiple locations or buried in folders (i.e. google drive). We love having everything at our fingertips and for such a reasonable price!

Pros

- I can create multiple databases all in one location
- I can share databases with my team who can then update and alter the databases in real time, giving everyone the same info at the same time
- I can manage all of this for free
- There are tons of filters for organizing my information
- It is easy to duplicate databases or move data around amongst them

Cons

- Some of the options that would be very beneficial and basic are paid options (such as color-coding different info)
- databases on the free plan are limited by the number of records, HOWEVER, you can have as many separate databases as we want, so this is a (very) minor issue

I love how Airtable allows me to communicate with other facets of our business while listing items in a spreadsheet-type of organization system.

Cons

There are so many features of Airtable that I sometimes feel overwhelmed, and don't know the best way to go about setting up my tables.

I use this for business and personal projects.

Pros

It started with a search to organize and catalog my landscaping plants for personal use. When I created that tool, I found billions of other excuses to use Airtable. It allows pictures to be connected to data and displayed in a multitude of ways. You can create an organization tool for anything at all. It's like Pinterest and Excel got married and had a Gerber baby! I've told lots of my creative contacts about it, and they are addicted to it. We look at each other and say... Airtable.

Cons

The app had some issues with loading, but customer service was awesome and helped me fix the glitch.

We're using it on a team of about 12 people and it is making us better with our calendars for our editorial processes as well as our leave calendars.

Pros

We're using this to replace some processes that previously happened in shared spreadsheets but never were ideal in that environment. I liked how the built in grid + calendar views got us to a better place so quickly and easily.

Cons

You can jump in and play with a base so quickly and easily. I do think it's smart to talk to an expert to help get more complex workflows built in a smart way.

Pros

You can start a small to medium project using Airtable with ease. visual tutorials, guides and tooltips are available throughout each element of the app. startups can be operational using this app within the day. It can also be used as personal planner/note taker.

Cons

Information overload with the default template after first creating my account. New users tend to get lost. starting a fresh works better for me, since video tutorials and community forums/articles are already available.

Flexibility & multiple different views for teams to collaborate & view the same data in the way that is most helpful to them. Ability to create a survey that auto populates a spreadsheet.

Cons

When you share restricted views of the table, data presentation is different/views are different than normal.
