Airtable revolutionizes relational databases

2018-07-17

Organization and project version tracking.

Pros

The count feature and certain summary functions are extremely helpful.

Cons

No place to put the schema for databases, or attach other documents (like a project folder). Statistics are too basic, need cleaner base reports.

Streamlining your workflow.

2018-10-21

Easily manages my ongoing and pending task for better visuality to make my work streamlined.

Pros

- Very helpful tool to organize your work on the go.It's easy drag in options make it easier to fill in data and organize cards according to specific dates and assign a specific individual to the work that needs to be done and you can also schedule time through which the work has to be done.

Cons

There are many things that needs to be added into airtable for making it more effective and organizable.It could use Gantt view chart option for better project management.

Great light weight asset & "stuff" management tool

2018-12-04

We've used Airtable as a lightweight project management tool, to track partnerships, and track a schedule and content for social media.

Pros

Although I have not use them, Airtable also has APIs available so hopefully it will be easy enough to integrate with existing tools.

Cons

The support for tracking burndown and velocity really isn't there - and I wouldn't use it if it was.

Airtable has changed the way I live and work!

2018-02-15

Pros

I LOVE the mobile app, the desktop app, the ease of use and simple interface.

Cons

I wish there was a way to somehow integrate a repeating function for tasks. I realize this is mostly a database and not a project management tool, but it would definitely close the loop for me and really rid me of any reason to use anything else for organization.

Excel on Steroids

2020-11-24

Airtable is extremely versatile, we track everything from project tasks and steps within a task to output and reach we also use it for budgets and tracking translation projects.

Pros

We use it daily for all kinds of projects, everything that Excel can do Airtable can do better.

Cons

We used Airtable for vacation planning and we had a few places where we couldn't get wi-fi and we couldn't pull up the address for where we were staying...

AirTable is a fantastic tool that can replace many of the systems you use every day.

2018-04-10

One place to organize most of our business functions including but not limited to strategic planning, project and task management, company calendar, editorial production and planning calendar, recruiting and hiring tracking, client database, staff directory, brand style guide, tech stack database, meeting tracking, affiliate tracking, budget and expense tracking, etc...

Pros

It is a great way to organize any type of information and data. We are using it to replace many of the systems we use day in and day out.

Cons

The pricing structure. Would like to see the pricing tiers based on #users and have all functionality available to all levels.

Great project organization and management tool

2020-10-16

I use Airtable to organize and plan my personal projects.

Pros

Right now I need it to be a huge to-do list and schedule organizer, but later I might need it to be a project management system complete with Gantt charts. I know it can do both.

Cons

If you jump in without a template to start from that's close to what you're looking for, Airtable can be intimidating to work with. It has its own jargon for the different levels of organization, and it wasn't initially clear to me how to use it. I had to go to a blog post from a user (not produced by Airtable to my knowledge) to make sense of it.

Nice organizational tool for teams

2020-09-24

Airtable has its limitations but is good for managing simple tasks such as event planning or brainstorming lists.

Pros

Very user-friendly and easy to invite others to collaborate on tasks. Reminds me of a more colorful Excel worksheet, easy to navigate through different projects and separate tasks by category.

Cons

Not the best tool for complex project management.

Be Your Own Boss!

2020-08-10

It has since then helped us for resource management and prioritizing task .

Pros

Its mostly because of the tools within the app that we use to schedule task as per priority, and time tracking.

Cons

While there are enough we can use on its free version, if we want to swap for the enterprise version, its a bit expensive. But its highly effective.

Great tool for advanced organization and project management

2019-03-05

Pros

Love the versatility of functions along with the user interface.

Cons

For basic task and project management, this is a great tool – but for more advanced features (or, if you're looking for any type of intuitive automation) it's a bit cumbersome.

So close to perfect!

2019-11-25

I really like its capabilities for tracking projects and tasks. If it was FERPA compliant it would be my one-stop shop for project management at work!

Pros

Using Airtable helped me keep track of all my tasks involved in coordinating the events.

Cons

I work in higher education and so I cannot manage ALL my projects and tasks in Airtable, just the ones that don't involve student data.

Changing the way we work for the better

2020-02-11

I want to put in google docs rather than attachments, I wish tasks were more check boxes than big task after big task.

More than a simple relational database...

2018-10-12

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

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!

Cons

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

Great tool with lots of amazing features

2018-12-15

Pros

We use airtable to track projects and assign tasks. It works fairly well for a small team.

Cons

Wish it integrated with email so that it could function more like a crm. The few times that we reached out to support as a paid subscriber they were slow and inefficient.

I have a crush on airtable!!

2017-08-05

Best way to organize everything!!! Project management, donors, meeting attendance, partnership profiles, etc.

Pros

I love everything about Airtable - the UI, how flexible and customizable it is, the templates, the case studies, and how easy it is to build links across records.

Cons

However, Airtable is beta testing its block functionality which makes it easy to build dashboards and graphs!

I have recommended Airtable to everyone who needs a task manager

2019-02-12

They just drop it down to the free package after the time is up.

Pros

I've used other project management platforms that were good, but not as flexible as Airtable.

Cons

I found this the most valuable tool for sorting and prioritizing.
