Airtable Software


 

Airtable is a cloud-based project management solution targeting small to midsize 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 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.

I tell everyone I know who has to manage data or information sets about Airtable and after looking for themselves, most of them opt to add it in to their set of tools!

Pros

Airtable offers unique features, is continually developing new tools and making improvements, and very affordable.

Cons

Some of the features I would like are still in development, but are in Beta testing right now. It is a great tool, but depending on what you need, may not be a complete system.

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.

Airtable

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

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.

Pros

- You can create your own templates/databases.
- You can add endless amounts of information .
- Very easy to use, manage and to add new information .
- Gives a very easy helicopter view of your work , personal, team, and organisational.

Cons

Nearly all good thus far, the app for android could be improved on.

A huge step up from cumbersome ugly spreadsheets.

Pros

This is the product we've been looking for years! We're using it to centralize all our studio and gallery information from the past 13 years (images, press links, participants) into this awesome database. It's friendly, easy-to-use online collaborative features that are orders of magnitude better than using spreadsheets. Especially useful is the different views options which allow you or your collaborators to only look at the relevant data- a real timesaver when you have many, many columns of data and many, many tables of related information.

Cons

Reports feature could be better, but this product is pretty new so I will assume they are working on it. Also, not a dealbreaker by any stretch, but a chat feature would be useful while collaborating.

Pros

Ease of use, sharing capabilities, remote access and much more! Airtable has allowed our organization to virtually go paperless, which has been a goal for a long time. Large teams can collaborate on a project and have instant access to the same information. We use it for tracking class enrollment, storing customer data, organizing and tracking marketing data and plans, staff schedules - plus so much more! Airtable has truly been an amazing addition to our organization and we recommend it to anyone looking for a user friendly data solution.

Cons

We would like to be able to add headers and footers to tables before printing, currently we export to csv to add this info, it is not ideal, but it works. We also would utilize an end date field (for, in our case, noting date ranges for classes that run weekly for a span of time). We have heard that this feature is going into BETA though, so we hope to see that as an option soon. The phone app is a bit limited in features, for instance linking to other tables, but we can also work around this and usually are working desktop versions anyway.

Providence Student Union is now using Airtable to manage the majority of its data. Almost anything relevant to nonprofit can be done easier and better in Airtable than in Google Sheets, etc.

Pros

1. It works.
2. It's easy-to-use.
3. The product and company feels *friendly* the app wants you to be successful at using it. It's the best app on-boarding experience I've ever seen too, with great emails explaining how to use the products, and lots of tutorials and templates.

Cons

Very little, truly. I'm yet to get angry about it. *Maybe* it would be better if links could be made more easily *across* databases, rather than just within (e.g., an "importrange" function), but honestly the integration with Zapier makes this easy enough.

I enthusiastically recommend Airtable, I'm transitioning most of my nonprofit to it.

organize things and collaborate with others

Pros

Airtable is very light and user-friendly software. It helps me organize efficiently tasks and simple projects and collaborate with other colleagues on web-based platform. The customer support work fantastic and they do offer 50% discount on billing for non profit organization like us. We are discovering more features of Airtable and inviting more users to try this wonderful application.

Cons

Airtable should develop its formatting for the users to view wrap text, provide print view and pdf print, custom reporting.

We are switching over many of our functions to Airtable. We are planning on moving over our donor management to Airtable, and program management to Airtable.

Pros

The ability to establish different views is the most powerful feature of this relational database software. We track our donations to our non-profit using Airtable. We are able to easily group, sort, and filter our donations by fiscal year, amount, who made the donation, etc. We are then able to set up the fields needed to make sure that they were appropriately sent a thank you note. Airtable bases are able to organize our departments better than they ever have been before.

Cons

There is a slight learning curve with Airtable, but that could be expected with any new software system. In my experience, once our team caught onto Airtable fundamentals, they were good to go and saw the enormous power and simplicity of AirTable--looks like a spreadsheet, but acts like a database.

It's easy to mold Airtable to fit exactly what we need. We've used this product for smaller projects in the past, but are excited to make it a bigger part of how we organize our work. The level of organization it allows will free up a lot of time and give us the ability to have all of our information stored in one place rather than in several shared documents that are easy to lose. We also love how easy it is to integrate Airtable with other applications!

We organize TEDx events and we have to deal with 120 contributor at each event. It helps us to organize them fastly and simply.

Pros

We like very much the reactivity of costumer support and also the features like connecting tables, making Forms with the answers who directly organize themselves in Creator mode.

Cons

We are sad that there is no french version, like for the phone number it only allows US way. Or to limit the number of characters allowed for an answer.

Also, an "if else" question mode would be created in forms. For exemple :
Q1a : do you have any pets
A1 a: Yes or No
If Yes selected Ask Q1b : Give their name A1b : blank
Else Go directly to question 2

Pros

It's very easy to setup and organise information which is related to each other. Working together on a database is also very easy. The different views and grouping information are powerful tools.

Cons

Not all sorts of fields are usable within web forms and it would be nice to lock the data in some fields.

SAVES ME TIME and keeps my data clean ! No more multiple spreadsheets which, as you know, is always an invitation for errors. Thank you so much for automating my process.

Pros

It integrates well with Zapier. We capture data from Google Forms that require tracking and quantitative reporting. Airtable has made this process really simple without all the other fluff typically found in CRM platforms. I can customize everything I need to for my purpose of application processing.

Cons

The help files GIFs and Videos move too fast. I would also like to be able to create sections in the forms and conditional formatting. Although I can create a view to print data, I would like to be able to create and save custom reports.

Web-based database for sharing information at a small non-profit of 50 employees.

For a fraction of the price of a project management app or a CRM, I've built both in Airtable and they work beautifully.

Pros

This software is amazing. It basically allows you to build custom applications. More powerful than a normal spreadsheet and way easier to use than a database, this software is great for organizing just about anything. You can set up a "base" to manage projects, plan a product launch, share feedback, and many more.

Cons

Their API is limited, you can only access at the "base" level and below, you can't access accounts to get a list of bases. If you could, you'd be able to share data across bases which would be fantastic.

This is the most customizable, easy-to use data tracking app I've ever used, and is ideal for small business tracking, team collaboration, and so much more. It's like a living spreadsheet that you can collaborate with anyone on, with the flexibility of so many different custom fields (from photos, custom tags, people's names, time stamps, the list goes on and on). I've personally used it for a social media calendar, sourcing content (articles, books, etc) with different folders for authors, titles, etc., client tracking, etc.

Cons

Nothing. For the value (free or close to free) this app has so many customizable features that I couldn't expect anything more.

Pros

Easy to upload data directly into the system. Once uploaded, the various field types, plus a strong API documentation section for each base make it easy to get going. Our team has been able to work through systems enhancements and trial out new field types quickly and with minimal disruption.

The example bases have been interesting to browse as we look for new data points to track in Airtable, and collaboration tools and commenting allow for us to keep each other updated on relevant changes to our system in near real-time. I am really excited to see where the roadmap for product development takes this tool moving forward.

Cons

Limited audit trail info on the free plan as well as bulk-update support (beta features may allow for this down the line for paid users).
