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

I can't say enough great things about Airtable. It is amazing how effective, smooth, and simple it is to use this platform to literally put everything down in my brain. When dealing with so many different parts of my business its nice to finally have something more pleasing to the eye than the traditional boring CRM's out there!

Cons

While I am 99.99% happy with Airtable, I would like to have a bit more flexibility on the interface color controls. Sorry I know I'm a bit of a freak when it comes to customizing my apps but that would be amazing!

This is the easiest and user friendly free CRM. The tutorial is easy to understand, build your own CRM in short period of time. Fully integrated with full browser or mobile devices.

One of the function is address, if the system architect can implement street function, 1-click leads to map or navigation on mobile device, that will be a great help.

Value for Money

It has been the best program for collaborations, data storage and I recommend that you try it, the price is acceptable depending on the use (you can do a 30-day test) but I see that with the free version you can get a good experience.

Pros

It has a very stable interface, careful and flexible, you could almost say it is perfect, it does not take much knowledge to use it. Their calculation sheets are simpler but effective for working on them, but it is not only spreadsheets it also adapts to any type of project or task making it a multifunctional program ;)

Cons

This product is fascinating and complete that the only thing that I dislike is that it could be linked to other bases and does not have an offline mode. It would be very nice to be included that function is specila, since there are times when I am in areas where there is no internet coverage.

AirTable is a great task manager that is a lot more visual than Trello or Asana (although we still use those for different aspects of our business.)

Pros

Airtable is easy to start using within moments of creating an account and organizes individual and team-wide to-dos, action items, files, and questions. It has been a game-changer in terms of organizing our teams and creating an environment of transparency and has cut out a lot of back-and-forth communication about where tasks are in the process of getting done.

Cons

We haven't been using AirTable enough to run into the paywall yet - I do wish there was an easier way to see real-time edits and who is making them (a la Google Docs) but imagine this is an integration that will come along soon. It seems a little too easy to change due dates and information, making it easy for data to be accidentally deleted.

I absolutely love how Airtable functions as both a spreadsheet and comprehensive database tool - it’s just so flexible and easy to organize!

The one part that I dislike about Airtable is their pricing structure. I find that you really have to pay a lot for Airtable’s advanced features. In some cases, these paid features would be free on their competitors platforms.

I litterally see Airtable as my work planner and execution tracker managing information with my remote team has never been easy easier
it being highly visual, sleek and user-friendly both on mobile and desktop makes it not boring.
I like the fact that it integrates with quite a large number of support making collaboration easy.
The template are amazing and filled with examples of how others are using it - I mean the question of lengthy learning curve is not there and what's more the free version offers a lot

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

Product Quality

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.

A Stunningly Beautiful Visual Database

Ease-of-use

Functionality

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.

- 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.

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

I think it's super simple to create databases with this tool is perfect for people who do not have as much knowledge and is super nice to look at, you also have the possibility to return to your previous versions and therefore eliminate any error committed in the future, you can also start from the beginning of the database from scratch or do it from a template already created.

It is an easy and versatile software that I use for several customized reports and list.

We utilize it to keep a monthly log of rentals, as project list, and inventory reports.
It is a great way to have very large amounts of detail and information and yet have a way to select the information down that you wish to view at any given time. I enjoy using the filter and hidden field buttons and looking at specific regions or Account Manager without seeing all the other.

Whatever you can dream or need you can create this in Airtable- I would never go back to excel again!

Cons

I cannot really find any cons at the moment for this software. Whatever I have ever wanted this software to do it has done it...No improvement needed at this time. Maybe some voice command to arrange my information.

Airtable offers features which make it a good choice and it definitely deserves to be tested alone or, better, in a team so that you can get familiar with the new opportunities from a fresh spreadsheet software creator.

Pros

You have many features, visual features and numerical features which help you to organize projects and businesses, to help your collaborators to better understand indicators and co. Everything can be individualized and changed as you want. Working with maps for example was fantastic and so was the handling with dropdowns which were embedded into the sheets. I can imagine what I could do with these tons of features.

Cons

Of course Airtable is making changes you don't know from Excel and needs to be established as a new standard. Not everything will work the same way as you know it from Excel and Numbers. Sometimes I got the feeling that the app needs some polishing when working on a sheet as the feeling when clicking around was like it lags. This can be distracting especially if you are focussed.

It's given me the tools / building blocks to make any kind of table to use. I use it for business stuff, but also for keeping track of Christmas gifts I want to get my family, validating ideas for apps, and a place I can put canned email templates all in one place.

Pros

I love that I can control and customize every part of an Airtable base in order for me to make a CRM that had exactly what I wanted, and nothing that I didn't want. Some of the metrics I keep track of for my business aren't available in some CRMs, and some CRMs that DO offer those metrics have so many other features and everything just becomes way too overkill and cluttered. Not only could I make a CRM that had exactly what I wanted, I could also make it work as a Project Manager, so literally everything I need for my business (Projects, Project Status, Client, Contact Info, Project Rate, Shoot Date, Deadline, Total Lifetime Client Spend, Thank You Letter Sent To Client, etc.) are all in one spot. There's no extra fluff I don't want, and all of the info I know I need.

Cons

The only downside is that records in separate bases at this time can't be linked. This is a huge request by users on the Airtable community forum, so as soon as that is implemented, Airtable will be a near-perfect service in my opinion.

Pros

It like Access on steroids. You have the option to organize the data in different tables and keep the relationships between them. It's much better and more powerful than google sheets.

Cons

I'd like to have more integrations with other tools and sometimes getting the data you want in the format you want requires quite some work. I find the pricing model a bit limiting. It can become very expensive if you have many users.

Pros

Airtable provides a great way to connect different sheets within one spreadsheet. You are able to share spreadsheets with multiple people, allowing for collaboration on projects. There are also great templates that are easy to edit and change to fit your individual need.

Cons

This is a hard question. This software is not the best when it comes to using it as a spreadsheet for financials.

Pros

This is a great tool for keeping organized. You are able to quickly create project bases using templates that have already been created. The form builder is a great feature for having team members input data and have it populated right into a worksheet view.

Cons

Unless I don't see the option, I wish there was a way to optionally increase the row height in grid view.

Airtable’s experience is light and user friendly. It is great for visual people and there is a high level of collaboration that can be achieved. It also integrates with many services.

Cons

The mobile version is very disappointing—especially compared to the wonders of the desktop version.

Pros

We use Airtable internally almost daily, to store a variety of stats and information that is key to our operation. We love that Airtable is a collaborative based software, and as it's online, we can share it across offices, which is important for us as well. For me, it is far and away the simplest Database tool that I have ever used, which is huge for us.

Cons

Some standard database options are missing, and the entire process can be kind of confusing to get started on, if you're coming from different database software.

For what we use it for, this is a life-saver. It makes it easy to keep track of everything and have everyone connect in one place.

Pros

We use this as a spreadsheet to track our cases. It allows us to have a central sheet with everyone, as well as creating separate sheets for individuals.

Cons

Some of the views are not ideal for what we use it for and are hard to understand.
