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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Web browser (OS agnostic)

    I’m relatively new to it but I’m liking it a lot. This is for my personal use only, not for business

    Pros

    I like that I can sync my app and have all the info I need on the cloud

    Cons

    I wish there was a way to attach files such as photos or documents

    I use airtable for organizing sewing patterns, of all things, and it's great for that. I'm able to link several images of a pattern to its entry, cross link with required fabric types and designers, upload actual patterns, and more. For this type of rich but specific application, Airtable is fantastic. I don't think I'd try it for something that didn't require so much visual/ non-text information, but it makes a great database for this type of thing.

    Pros

    I like the ability to combine visual information and links straightforwardly.

    Cons

    A bit clunky to navigate/learn, and certain editing can be unwieldy

    We are solving multiple business problems across all departments and have realized significant efficiencies.

    Pros

    AirTable is very a flexible tool to help manage data and improve processes if used appropriately. The different features can be creatively leveraged across multiple areas in our company, creating efficiencies, as well as easier access to data.

    Cons

    Some spreadsheet like aspects are not as powerful as Excel, and would great to see more updates, as there is tremendous potential.

    I use Airtable frequently both personally and professionally. It's an easy system for organizing anything that involves digital attachments, so it has a wide range of applications in my job in educational assessment. I also love using it to build mini-mobile apps for personal projects -- I've used Airtable to build "apps" which worked flawlessly for buying a car and for managing my Fantasy Football drafts in real-time. I'd previously tried doing the same in spreadsheets but Airtable worked much better for things that needed to be edited on-the-fly such as a live draft.

    Pros

    Airtable is, quite simply, my single favorite piece of software that I use. It's just as easy to use as a spreadsheet, but infinitely more powerful. It's intuitive to figure out and incredibly flexible. I can use it both to create powerful relational databases but also often use the mobile format to create tables which work more like apps. There are many different views, all of them useful, and it's easy to switch back and forth when needed. I love Airtable.

    Cons

    I wish more of the views were available on the mobile version. While it's still plenty powerful using only the default view, I'd really love the mobile version to support the calendar and kanban views in particular. The functions are also not as extensive as in spreadsheets or other database programs. I'd love to have the ability to choose one "block" (plug-in) for each free table, as Trello allows free users to do.

    Cons

    For someone who is used to working with spreadsheets, it takes time to get used to this new language.

    storing and organizing all sorts of business data that used to live scattered between Box, Google Drive, Tableau, Liquid Planner and Salesforce. It's becoming a central hub of company data that's now accessible and actionable in ways it never was before.

    Pros

    lets you do all of those data tasks, from little organizational moves to heavy lifting and analysis that sit in between excel and Tableau.

    Cons

    still building out reporting features that fit all use cases

    We are currently using Airtable for nearly EVERYTHING in our business. We plan 300+ events a year and run everything from Airtable.

    Pros

    Airtable is simple to use, flexible in its functionality, and allows us to use the system for a variety of different facets of our business.

    Cons

    Airtable is constantly improving, there are some things missing, but luckily we have the ability to custom code what we don’t have in field functionality.

    The major thing I would love to see is something to help search for duplicate records.

    I'm running ads for an online publisher and on social media. I use Airtable to schedule, keep client contacts, and contracts.

    Pros

    The the built-in automation of these sheets is remarkable. One base has combined at least 4 Google sheets and saved me countless hours over the course of the year of redundant work. So many additional features that I haven't had the chance to mess around with. I'm sure there's something for everyone.

    Cons

    Still requires a bit of manual work at the set up. When I have found a new feature that I add into an existing base, the adoption is not always smooth. With there was more of a chance to explore features of paid version than a couple of weeks.

    AMAZING!! I brought airtable to my previous company, I still work their part-time, and it really streamlined the company. They use it for everything.

    Pros

    The ease of use of Airtable and the ability to easily roll out the system to all employees is extremely convenient.

    Cons

    The cost for each user is high for smaller companies but the free version is very helpful and Airtable gives you ways to work around the cost, like the ability to accrue credit for referring people.

    Pros

    We like it's versatility. The ability to change the visual presentation of each project, the ease of using different templates, linking tabs to each other- all these things create a more cohesive workspace.

    Cons

    It can be a little confusing and takes some getting used to. Definitely a learning curve.

    There are a few features that have not rolled out yet, but I see in the community pages that they are aware and working on them. I really have no complaints.

    It was good, but for what I was using it for, it was overpowered and not worth the money.

    Pros

    Airtable was a nice software to use. I was using it to organize information that I was collecting. It did the job well

    Cons

    For what I was using it for, I think it would have been easier to use something that was already being used like Google sheets.

    Pros

    Airtable is simple, flexible, and powerful. By implementing relational capability in a table format, it fills an important gap between spreadsheets and more sophisticated, expensive tools.

    Cons

    Seems like building tables that calculate aggregate numbers could be more powerful - could use more flexible ways to calculate formulas across cells.

    Airtable is a slick, slimmed-down Excel alternative. You can include images and use tags to make items searchable. The results are shareable and mobile-friendly. If you have a list of things to organize and you're not an Excel or Google Docs power user, Airtable is the way to go.

    I have used Airtable since its early days for a variety of business and personal uses. And that's what I love about it: it's so flexible that it can meet just about any use case. At work, it has helped me organize complex projects, track content libraries, provide detailed documentation about major website overhauls, and more. In the time I've used it, I've been impressed with the rich feature sets that are regularly added, and the documentation is helpful. The team at Airtable seems to really understand who their customers are and what they need to be successful.

    Pros

    The greatest feature of Airtable is how flexible and customizable it is. If you can dream it, there's probably a way to do it in Airtable. Usually, that type of flexibility comes with a poor user interface or a steep learning curve. Not so with Airtable. It starts where users are familiar (a basic spreadsheet) and makes it easy to add on powerful features. You don't have to be a database guru to gain major efficiencies.

    Cons

    I wish there were more formatting options for the long text fields, particularly for Markdown support. This would leave the field essentially plain text on the backend, but would render stylistically on the front end. This would allow for many new use cases for the platform.
