Pros

Airtable notifications from mentions which are sent to both airtable and emails help you keep track of your activity and tasks. Its user friendly with a good interface and easy to learn.
Obviously, the features are 10 times better on airtable. The different kind of views that I can have is also brilliant, the calendar view, kanban view and my favorite.
I literally try to replace as many tools as I can with Airtable because it is so flexible. Using it as the core for client and customer reports is fun and feels like a stable solution.

Pros

It is wonderful the system of assignment of tasks and notifications that allows to always take the project to the day and with the priorities to solve.
The free version is great, and the paid functionality seems awesome.
It is a designer and programmer friendly tool where it's easy to collaborate without any noticeable hassles.

Cons

We had problems with the mobile app not working at times. This was frustrating for our teams in the field, especially since this was a big selling point for us.
The input fields to gantt view can be confusing at times. Also, filtering by projects due is also confusing if all team members do not synchronize their way of project management.
I also very much dislike the amount of e-mails my colleagues and I receive from AirTable, a lot of which are requesting that we upgrade (and pay for) their software.

Cons

I find it frustrating to changing Status only after creating the task.
The only thing that I would say that's negative is that it runs slow at times but I believe that's a result of our environment.
Nothing comes to mind at the moment as something to dislike.
