Lots To Do, But Lots To Get Use To

2018-04-12

The amount of interaction with my team member is more productive via digital since everyone can comment and understand from the notes what exactly needs to be done.

Pros

Great way to organize tasks and manage team collaboration.

Cons

The learning curve to get use to all the features airtable offers like calendar outlining, project tracking, product planning, and etc.

Airtable has changed the way I think about... almost everything

2017-01-09

I currently use Airtable to: - manage a year long project with multiple sub-projects and team members who collaborate via Airtable - keep track of home projects, including reference imagery and shopping lists for each project - organize donors to my non-profit project, including reminders of when I should get in touch with people and how they contributed to the project - catalogue home design and architectural inspiration Like Trello and Evernote, the possibilities of Airtable expand the more you use it.

Pros

- Elegant UI design - Intuitive UX (user experience) design - Flexible and adaptable to nearly any workflow - Collaboration with team members - It's free

Cons

- The collaboration is great but could be improved with chat/conversations that operate more like Google Docs comments

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.

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.

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!

fantastic solution for information-oriented project management

2018-03-27

Pros

* lends itself well to building information tracking resources * simple data-driven layout * scalable project areas my operations team uses airtable to manage a lot of information flow and have converted complex tracking resources into the airtable format. the fact that we now utilize the app for a lot of these solutions is a testament to its immediate strengths. i enjoy how airtable doesn't necessarily force me into any specific workflow, which has been the major reason why other project management solutions don't work--everyone has a different philosophy around project management.

Cons

first off, airtable is too expensive for my company based specifically on their pricing model. to note, airtable charges per user per workspace. each member of my team manages specific projects related to a different area of the business. for ease of organization, we have a separate airtable workspace built to accomodate each employee. for example, we have a workspace for finance projects and a workspace for customer support projects. from a visual project management standpoint, this makes the most sense. sometimes our finance manager will need to engage and comment on a project base going on in the customer support workspace and vice versa. this engagement occurs daily.

Great multipurpose tool

2018-05-03

Pros

Airtable has a ton of useful project management tools that will help to keep small and large teams on track

Cons

All of the features can be a bit overwhleming at first - but the templates help you build out an Airtable that works for your team

Airtable is the most dynamic and easy-to-use database software out there. It's made my life easier!

2018-03-13

It's like a combination between a spreadsheet, a project management software, a database and a calendar, but it's EASY to use so it's not intimidating or confusing.

Pros

I also have used an integration with IFTTT to have my client follow-ups automatically get added to my Google Calendar!

Cons

However, their mobile app is good, so I can still get at my information that way.

So excited!

2017-08-07

organization and (project/people) management and it's integration with Slack

Pros

I can set up forms for novice users and then manipulate the data in ways that are meaningful in reporting. We can track many different elements of our organization from project management to resource deployment.

Cons

It is not fully compatible with screen readers in all browsers. One of our team members is blind and we are hopeful that she doesn't have accessibility issues with this platform.

Best Project Management Tool for Creatives

2018-04-30

Very easy to set up workspaces and assign tasks to project team.

Pros

What I like most about Airtable is how projects are set as workspaces and can create multiple tables for files, tasks, budgets, and more.

Cons

The software could improve if it had a more effective communication option where team members could discuss tasks or provide commentary on updates about the project.

Great way to collaborate on projects with instant access by multiple team members.

2017-07-13

Great way to collaborate with a big team on projects.

Pros

Great way for a large team to collaborate on a project and have instant access to the same information.

Cons

If more than one user is active in the program at a time- changes being made by one can negatively impact the work of the other.

Excel on steroids

2017-12-06

Better to organize and categorize data than Excel. Easy to collaborate with other team members.

Pros

Easy to learn and use - if you know Excel, you can learn this Great perks for free plan Good design in terms of colors, layout, etc.

Cons

Not good for task management / reminding deadlines Limits on conversations archived are really restricting - we have to use a "Notes" field instead to have conversations I still haven't figured out if it can email you to notify you when a colleague comments

I've not only used Airtable for work but also to plan my wedding.

2018-04-10

Pros

I love the versatility of ways to organize and keep track of information and tasks. I like that I can have 1 project and multi layers of infomation connected through tabs.

Cons

I wish there were more types of tabs options, like just a plan document or a place to create simpler tabs of information (for notes etc.)

I love Airtable. The free plan is extremely generous and I use the app for a variety of purposes.

2018-02-15

I finally upgraded my plan after a couple of years, not because I had to, but because I was interested in some of the pro features, like the better colors and extra calendar capabilities.

Pros

For example, I can view project tasks in a kanban format but then click to a calendar view to see when things are due.

Cons

I keep track of projects and clients on it, but for client notes I use Milanote.

I use Airtable as personal CRM and I love it!

2018-04-02

Organised contacts, scheduling and planning

Pros

- simple, clean, interface - pretty and simple customizable design - great organizing system for your contacts - nice trip planning feature - a lot of templates to get your life more organized: home hinting, trip ideas, home remodel and etc - credits for referral are also very nice

Cons

But a bit more creative design for creative projects would look nicer and more appealing.

However, we use this platform for so many other areas of our business like project management, income/expenses, inventory management, etc.

Airtable is What Filemaker SHOULD have become in the Web 2.0 World

2017-08-15

I built a custom solution for tracking content ideas in less than hour.

Pros

The ability to rapidly deploy solutions that are useable on any platform, even my phone. Integration with Zapier, the ability to embed forms on websites, cross linking between databases, etc.

Cons

I wish they had a more Filemaker like graphical interface design element.
