Powerful to use database

2018-04-20

Accuracy and savings in time.

Pros

Breaking down tasks and allocating them to team-members allows me to track projects at a macro level while allowing individual team members to view their own set of tasks in an organized summarized manner.

Cons

The tool would become more powerful if we could add some more customized formatting like colors.

As a freelance graphic designer I use fieldboo every single day to keep track of my client projects

2018-06-07

Pros

What I like most about Fieldbook is how easy and effectively I can keep track of all my client projects and how it allows me to have everything all in one place.

Cons

I have always felt there is a large chunk of features missing from Fieldbook, it has opportunity to be a fully fledged project management app but instead it has minimal features and functions

An app that finally fills the gap between easy-to-use spreadsheets and inaccessible databases!

2016-11-29

I've used it for keeping track of student grades and assignments, for planning conferences, for indexing a book, for keeping track of gifts I've given and am planning to give, for tracking Christmas cards, for organizing data for a job search, and even for organizing the dishes, ingredients and steps for a complex dinner party. Whatever your use case, if there's data you want to interrelate easily, and be able to view in different ways, Fieldbook is a great step forward over previously available tools.

Pros

It's a lightweight database with the friendliness of a spreadsheet.

Cons

There's no way to run formulas over the multiple items linked to in a cell to yield multiple results.

Great tool for wedding planning

2016-11-15

We used Fieldbook to keep track of various wedding-planning details (guest list and information, gifts and thank you notes, RSVPs, etc) and would have been so lost without it!

Pros

Well-designed, collaborative, relatively easy to use

Cons

some features are limited or unintuitive

Great for working with spreadsheets

2018-06-04

Easy spreadsheet management

Pros

Makes working with spreadsheets easier and much more effective, helps to keep track of information.

Cons

Not having access to manage files offline. I understand that nowadays devices are always connected to the internet, but sometimes, for example when you are in the airplane, there is no wi-fi connection.

Best Project Management tool for Agencies

2018-06-08

At my workplace where I work the project management is a piece of cake with this software.

Pros

One of the best tool to assign a task to your employees and keep a check on them.

Cons

I really haven't yet found any bug in the tool yet because I use it for a very limited purpose and it works seamlessly for me.

Great for developers

2016-11-08

It's a great way to connect a database (your books and sheets) to your own software or to create prototype APIs. As a developer for desktop applications Fieldbook helps me with sharing data, working with APIs and setting up workflows shared with other people.

Pros

I can easily shape my Fieldbook to suit the needs of my projects

Cons

Up-time could be better.

So easy, everyone on my team can use it

2016-11-08

This is why its great for prototyping, you can access your data using the API, create relational data sets, yet its web interface allows anyone on the team (designer, project managers, clients, etc) to edit the content.

Great product for accounting and tracking

2018-01-17

Pros

Very easy to use, and a nice system to keep track of several different business related groups instead of having to manage several messy excel worksheets.

Very promising start-up product

2016-11-08

The pricing is also very fair and scales to your API use, so you can get started quickly and scale up when you need it.

Pros

Free to start, intuitive, easy to share between remote workers

Cons

There also isn't a change-history log, which I would like to track editing.

let it be a good and colloquial network citizen and interact with traditional office software as well. Maybe it's funny, but I would very much like an SQL interface.

One killer feature, but a couple of crucial features missing

2016-11-08

Two crucial features are missing that have made it difficult for us to move forward in carrying our own Fieldbook integration to production. The API works okay for very basic CRUD capabilities, but that's about it.

Pros

Ease of use, MailChimp integration, CRUD RESTful API

Cons

Needs import/update feature, Metadata API, performance improvements

Amazing product

2016-11-08

I love the beautiful interface and the easy to use query and most important of all, the eaasy to use REST APIs. Although I could do the same thing with Google Docs, but it's a lot more complicated, Fieldbook made it so easy.

Pros

Design, Ease of use, REST APIs

Cons

I wish I could reorder the books.

Endless Possibilities with a Rock Solid App

2016-11-30

Currently I use FieldBook for a personal side project, and can't stop praising it's ability and where I would be without it (boring excel)

Pros

Endless Possibilities , Easy to Use, and the constant desire I have to want to add more, track more and never fail with all my crazy ideas.

Cons

None that I can honestly think of at this stage.

Wonderful Product

2016-11-17

Its especially helpful that the interface allows less computer savvy members of our staff to easily use the system.

Pros

Ease of use. Functionality. Modular like ability to only add on features/fields that you need

Cons

Only complaint so far is that it sometimes freezes/double enters. Possibly a connection issue on our end

Spreadsheets are fun! But collaboration can be hard

2016-11-29

But the real power of Fieldbook lies in the API. Via simple HTTP endpoints you get complete control of your data, but also access to Codelets and other tools you can use to create complex APIs of your own.

Pros

Very simple Create powerful APIs with no, or very little coding No more Excel files being send as email attachments

Cons

API limit rates. As our application grows, we have had to implement a simple cache

More configuration options on the forms would be great. For example, if a column contains URLs to images, being able to render them as an image in a dropdown would be great. Even better would be the ability to configure the look of each option in a html select for the linked row. For example image:col3 text:col1 image:"http://example.com/images/${col2}.png". Or something along those lines

My thoughts on fieldbook

2016-11-08

I prefer AirTable * The API didn't allow me to query for multiple records at once making it basically useless as a backend database

Pros

Easy API sandbox powered by runkit

Cons

I can't query multiple rows at once.
