Great Content Calendar That Promotes Collaboration

What do you like best?

I like how we can easily transition from a table view to a calendar view. This is especially helpful since we primarily use Airtable as a content calendar. We can see what's coming up, what still needs work, and what will publish when. It's nice to be able to drag and drop records within the calendar view if we need to rearrange our publishing schedule.

We have several different people contributing and editing within our organization's blog and website and this makes it easier for us to collaborate with each other and organization information. It's easy to send other team members notes and to assign them tasks.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if there was a way to set up automated alerts. For example, if we put a due date on a task, an alert is automatically generated and emailed to whoever is assigned to the task. Perhaps there is a way to do this is a paid version but we have yet to find this feature and use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to manage our content and visualize it on a calendar easily and it has really streamlined our editorial process. Recently our content has increased and this tool helps us manage it and ensure that our blog is constantly publishing new material on a consistent basis.

We can see ourselves using this more and more to manage updating other areas of our website, especially those sections that require constant content updates. We also have a few large projects on the horizon that we'd like to use Airtable for.

Outdoes Excel in Ways I Didn't Know Were Possible!

What do you like best?

Airtable is so helpful because it uses your data to create more insight on your project or team. By using data that already exits, Airtable can help you make additional connections by grouping, having menu options as data, and creating text and numerics. It created a multitude of new ways for me to look at, analyze, and streamline my data...and it truly feels now like a database.

What do you dislike?

I'm not sure if it is in the premium plan, which includes "blocks," but it would be interesting to integrate tables and graphics into my data. It would add an additional visual element that might be useful and continue to rival Excel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try adding columns and data you don't think you need, they might actually help you realize new connections when you start linking sheets and cells.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Airtable to track my programs members, I am able to notice and make connections that I never considered. It is helping me to think of knew ways to connect and grow our activities, by simply showing me data I haven't looked for before.

Saves me tons of time!

What do you like best?

All the functionality of an excel sheet with added tools that make it easier, without being as complicated as an access database

What do you dislike?

So far I don't dislike anything! I'm looking forward to seeing what else I can use it for aside from my primary purpose of event planning.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you aren't quite to the level of needing a full-on custom database but spreadsheets just aren't cutting it anymore, I would give Air Table a try. It could be just the solution to your problem. It has solved mine and I'm looking forward to seeing how much I can do with it. Collaboration with others in my team is going to be much easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I manage the media, marketing, and fundraising events for a small, regional non-profit. I've been keeping track of events in Excel, which has been ok but not great. I also needed to be able to collaborate with others in my office that I'm working with, and while I have a OneDrive account through Microsoft which allows me to share my files easily, it doesn't allow us to collaborate unless they're also Office360 subscribers. Air Table allows me to share my projects with everyone.

10,000 Times Better Than a Spreadsheet

What do you like best?

The absolute flexibility and freedom I get from Airtable. I love thinking, "Oh, I really want to see this look different. Oh wait, I CAN TOTALLY DO THAT!"

The ability to filter and sort what I want or need to see is second to none; clutter is almost nonexistent as long as I'm using the software properly. If I'm not, it's always an easy fix.

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't mind a little more flexible cross-referencing, or multiple synced calendars. See, when I create a calendar view, I add options like I would any record. But it only allows for one "appointment type." I can create new tables, but there isn't an easy way to immediately sync them, so there are sometimes unnecessary fields in my calendar records when all I need to do is remember to call or meet someone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch the demo videos. Try out multiple templates. Think about the current problems you experience with your CRM and see if Airtable has a solution. Even if you already have a CRM, Airtable is going to be fantastic at organizing and scheduling things. You can cross-reference records to assign users to tasks and vice-versa. If something isn't working, just try another view or add another table and experiment with it. There is so much flexibility here that if you can't figure out a good way to use it, you're doing something wrong.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've basically abandoned another CRM and started using this. It's faster, easier to read quickly, and I can immediately access bits of information I might need. Adding new records, updating records or moving them around is incredibly easy.

I want to use this for everything!

What do you like best?

Airtable feeds my compulsion for efficiency and organization. I constantly think of ways to use the system and ways to convince others to use it as well.

I like that it's simple enough for the average person to use and also allows complexity. The various templates are a great way to get ideas for creating new bases as well.

What do you dislike?

This took some thought, but I guess I would say that I dislike some of the limitations. There are some small 'quality of life' features I'd wish for. Such as the calendar view. Most of the other views are highly customized in that you can determine what fields are scene. I remember requesting this feature for calendar views as it seems this view received a bit less care. However, these things hardly take away the overall experience and I imagine the company is constantly improving their system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're keeping records or just need a solution that no one else can offer, Airtable is likely going to be flexible enough to give you what you want. There are tons of templates to look through to give you some ideas and the support team is wonderful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I currently use airtable to generate a ticketing system which alerts me through slack. I also decided to use it to organize our lunch ordering system which seems to be working well. In my personal use I use it for various film projects.

Airtable clearly creates a space of efficiency and order. There is far less stress in my life.

The best data management system

What do you like best?

Airtable is entirely easy to manage the database.

There are dozens of templates available for any intended use. You can create in your own account a number of databases and invite people to separate bases in the absence of access to everything. Also this service has an excellent mobile application, the functionality of which is at the highest level.

What do you dislike?

I believe that design can deserve a certain improvement. This is acceptable and easy to use, but in that case it is easy to use, so I would like to have the ability to merge records between databases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I fully advise Airtable for any company, large or small. Just make sure that you are flexible in different systems with your team. Also in this service there are strong working tools that can help you create and work more productively and efficiently for the purpose of your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What I like most about Airtable is its quality. It is convenient and easy to use without sacrificing too much functionality. This allows the user to create a database from scratch or use predefined templates that allow for rapid development. The basics are intuitively laid out, so that when you first use it, you configure it quickly and clearly

What do you dislike?

If the company is big, the price justifies itself, but for a small company it would be desirable to price cheaper. Also, it would be nice to have a downloadable version of the desktop.

Airtable Review

What do you like best?

The organizational structure of Airtable is so user friendly. My coworkers and I are able to communicate much better since some staff members work remotely and are working at different times then our normal office hours.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes adding a lot of dates can make things harder to find. It is very well organized and structured, but it can get to be massive and overwhelming from certain views. I think it would be easier if when as task is completed it could go into a separate section possibly? Instead of crowding into all of the uncompleted tasks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communicating with team members in different areas of the country. Instead of having to dig through our emails, all of the information is in a central location. Being able to add documents and files has been incredible! It's so helpful to be able to reference things in a grid format.

Finally unlimited custom fields

What do you like best?

Airtable is the only truly dynamically customizable project management tool and its got so much capacity to push info and then sort to your heart's content.

What do you dislike?

I don't really understand the 1200 record limit per base. it's not the worst thing by any means, but it seems kind of arbitrary. Also I'd LOVE it to have a more robust google calendar integration, but it doesn't without some zapier integrations which are never as good as something native.

My biggest complain about other PM software is having so few custom fields. Rarely in 8 years of managing projects has a software predicted all the fields and types i'd actually need, let alone make them available right from go in a free version.

Best Data Management System

What do you like best?

AirTable is best for team collaboration and getting projects done. It's pretty much an all-in-one platform for tasks and project management.

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of a steep learning curve for new users. We've had a few team members feel like it is too difficult to learn. But it's worth it! Although there is not much so far to dislike, I personally wish their layout, font, and look can be a bit more customizable. But that's a lot to ask from such a great company.

positive results for an already integrated team

What do you like best?

AirTable has been helpful for us to gain more cohesion on different projects and clients that we are working with. We value that documents in our drive are linkable and this is certainly a generative function for our teams big picture.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if it were a bit more user friendly in the areas of customization. As an intuitive user I find it be just fine and that is not the case for all of my team members or all of my teams. It would also be great if it were more linked to other apps for plugins.

The new launch of Airtable boards helped us in getting a great insight by using customised dashboards.

You can create an use multiple databases (called Bases) in your account and invite people to individual Bases without giving access to everything. It is cloud-based and has a fantastic mobile app.

Create a custom database for any need

What do you like best?

It is easy to create a database to store nearly any type of information, and link between tables. Reports and custom views then allow you to view that data in many different ways. The interface is attractive and easy to use, but is also pretty powerful once you start digging through all the functionality.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to be able to link records between bases. However, I understand their reasoning behind not allowing this, as their price structure is based on the number of records per base, and this would open up a big loophole.

AirTable used for team consult tracking

What do you like best?

I like that it functions a lot like Excel but can be much more organized and easier to view and work in with all the great customizable features. Our use is unique and it’s a great free way to track things. It has a clean, sleek look and is a great connection tool.

What do you dislike?

I hate that it doesn’t have reminder/follow up capabilities especially knowing they advertise as a team collaboration tool that’s used for customer service. Customer service takes follow up, especially within my role. This could be easily added to customize a row within the view. We like the survey app, but there is an issue for our team when using it - nothing we do is every straight and narrow - so options within the surveys need to be added all the time as no consult or meeting is the same & we noticed the survey views do not have this capability when trying to edit and add options on the go.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get an integration tool or software for email and reminder function. Editable survey options on the go for people taking the survey.

I use it to centralize and organize a lot of information and documents, but you could also use it as a checklist, program management tool, and probably many other ways I cannot think of right now. It's easy to collaborate with your team, and keeps everyone on the same page. To say that my work life has changed since I started using Airtable is not an exaggeration, it's just the truth.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work for a non-profit research organization, and my department has a lot of grants and fellowships I need to organize and keep track of. I also have a boss who travels a lot, and whose travel arrangements can be complicated, with a lot of details to manage. Airtable can function as an organizer of information but I also use it as a checklist. It has drastically improved my efficiency and effectiveness in getting tasks done.

Perfect solution for multiple spreadsheets

What do you like best?

As a nonprofit, tracking grant funded projects was starting to become a nightmare with separate spreadsheets for each project, bunches of formulas to try not to screw up, and reporting headaches. I discovered Airtable, and managed to get a hold of all of my grants in on, colorful, easy to use base.

What do you dislike?

I sometimes have trouble with linking properly... but that's my fault not Airtables. I'm still learning just what all can be done with it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot... the free version can do incredible things and when you need more advanced features the price is not unreasonable

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nonprofit. Grant funded projects (wildfire thinning and at-risk youth training)... previously having multiple spreadsheets for each project, figuring out how to produce reports from each for funders... Ugly :) Now I have one base where all data from all projects can be stored, and viewed multiple ways, making it a whole lot easier for me to keep track of everything.

Excellent collaboration tool for non-profits

What do you like best?

This tool is a life saver! I am starting to wonder how I ever worked without it. My team has been using it for event planning, grants management, donor management, and more. If you are asking yourself, "Why shouldn't I just use Google Sheets?" the answer is because the functionality and customization of Airtable makes Google Sheets look like a toy. I love the ability to link records, color code, and easily customize field types.

What do you dislike?

I really can't think of anything significant. It took me a few days to get used to the interface but once I figured it out it was so easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've searched high and low for a tool like this, none compares to Airtable in features and value.

Excel, Google Sheets, & a database combined - but a little pricey

What do you like best?

Airtable is pretty much the best combination of Excel, Google Sheets, and a database. Think about putting data into a spreadsheet, and then thinking you'd love to display that data in some sort of dashboard. Airtable lets you do this. Need to collect information from people via a form? Airtable lets you do this. Need to have the ability to upload files in cells? You can do this in Airtable too. Need to turn your data into a trello-like Kanban board? Airtable makes adding a view extremely easy.

What do you dislike?

I think it would make more sense to bill for one account, versus billing per workspace. I like the idea of being able to have multiple workspaces per billing account. That being said - I would not pay for one account that has unlimited workspaces if the current pricing per workspace applied. I think that's entirely too much to ask for the features that Airtable provides. As it stands right now, current pricing is a bit high for the features offered. To make Airtable a really solid replacement for most of your tools, you need the Blocks feature which is only available on the Plus plan.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely look at the price and your current solutions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Airtable provides a new way for us to manage our membership applications, the interview process, and our data in general. We're looking to Airtable to solve many of our problems around collecting data & reporting on that data.

Brilliant, easy to use, powerful

What do you like best?

Flexibility, ease of use, and its combination power as both a data management and project management tool. This is a weird thing to say, but it makes us happy - empowered and in control of our data, with tools to improve work flow and collaboration as a team.

What do you dislike?

This isn’t a dislike exactly, more like a realistic caution that because Airtable is really, really easy to use straight out of the box, it takes a little while to understand both its constraints and its real power as an analytic and reporting tool. If you need to go beyond a simple dataset, you totally can - just be ready to give the investment of time and thought that you would in any traditional database design.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloud technology means all data is secure and available real-time for all our team, wherever they work. It eliminates the need for costly in house or external consultants with technological expertize that as a small nonprofit we just cannot access. The collaboration features are really stellar, for example, we can send a link to an instructor that gives them real time data on course registrations as they come in, eliminating the need for creating and emailing multiple reports.

An Excellent, Modern Database Solution

What do you like best?

Airtable was first recommended by a colleague as a solution to managing our social media workflow. As we dug into the features, we quickly realized the possibilities of using Airtable to integrate our entire event-based workflow. From creating a directory of people to managing events from concept to historical archive, Airtable is an extremely flexible platform. The integration possibilities with Zapier and the newly released Block features make this an ideal platform for our organization. It just works.

What do you dislike?

There's a lot you can do through cross-referencing items in Airtable, and unfortunately the appearance of spreadsheet can be confusing initially. This leads to a lot of trial-and-error when building a working database and training new users. While the documentation is rich and extensive, more how-to guides for less tech savvy users would go a long way in a transition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There's a lot possible with Airtable, so experiment and you're bound to find solutions that you weren't expecting to find.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Airtable has helped our organization collaborate and share information across departments. In the past, we would create individual spreadsheets every time someone needed specific information. With Airtable, the majority of our information lives in one place, and communication between departments is already increasing. The possibilities for automation with Blocks and Zapier have been very helpful in slowly moving workflows over, such as by creating an automated social media and email history in Airtable. Rather than overwhelm with information, the ability to make custom, personalized views that connect with the main database really brings the program to the next level.

Great for non-profits

What do you like best?

Our summer camp uses Airtable to combine and link information from our old mess of multiple Excel spreadsheets, and to provide high-level summaries and metrics for our program team. We track everything including bookings, purchasing, supplies and tech assets, grants, financials, staffing, scheduling and much more. With its ease-of-use, all of the options to group and report on data, and features like maps and other app integrations (through Airtable Blocks), we're still learning how powerful Airtable is, but we're excited for what it has done for our camp.

What do you dislike?

There are a handful of features we'd like to see, including linking between individual Bases and a version we could install locally on our own servers, aren't present at the time of this review.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest benefit we get from using Airtable is helping us to provide actionable metrics for our program team drawn from a dozen or more different sources of information, allowing us to run our program more effectively.

Solid Solution for Organizing People and Documents

What do you like best?

Airtable provides features that Google Forms avoids. The ability to upload files, and then review form data—including uploaded files—just like a spreadsheet is extremely convenient. The ability to color code entries (with Pro version) creates a quick-review of responses to target specific needs at a given time.

What do you dislike?

Where Airtable falls short is the lack of conditional logic in form responses (e.g. if respondent chooses D, then show this question). Google Forms has made this feature a standard, and yet Airtable seems to actively avoid implementing this functionality. That is truly disappointing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be on the lookout for progress in the feature set. Airtable might have power, but it lacks basic form functionality like conditional responses based on previous answers.

Powerful, evolving software

What do you like best?

My team are used to working from excel spreadsheets, the UX of AirTable is not so far removed from excel that it threatens adoption.

What do you dislike?

My biggest (and it significant) issue is that linking data is not possible beyond the Base you're working from. This extremely limiting for projects that work across several departments. It's also very customization to the point that it can get rather complex very quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While comparing features on platforms is important, I'd definitely recommend consulting the people who are going to use the program as to how the UX is for them. Some prefer visually appealing, pre-programmed systems, others prefer something similar to spreadsheets. You can set up a sleek, powerful system, but if the team doesn't like the visuals and UX, the adoption won't take as it should. AirTable is one of those platforms where it matters - especially with so many programs out there!

A dream for managing my network

What do you like best?

For my entire life I've struggled to remember who I know, keep track of the details I know about the people I know, and think through how to best invest my time into my network. Airtable is the first product I've seen that provides a solution to these problems without focusing on the address book / contacts app, or simply offering a stale spreadsheet. Airtable allows me to see the exact picture of my network.

What do you dislike?

For someone who isn't native to using Microsoft Excel, I was still slightly intimidated of how to best use Airtable until a friend of mine who's an expert walked me through it and set it up for me. There's likely a way for Airtable to bring non-Excel pro's up to expert level with ease... and I'm sure they have already figured it out and it just takes a smidgeon more time for me to get there!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Study their education materials and reach out to someone at Airtable on their customer success team. The jump in how much more usable the product becomes is unbelievable, at least for someone like me who is a slow learner!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary business problem I am currently solving with Airtable is maintaining an organized personal and professional network of detailed relationships. So far, I've benefitted from being able to search and sort my network based on who I need to follow up with that I recently met, and the folks I need to catch up with who I've fallen a bit out of touch with.

For all of those people who have been using Microsoft excel as their “go-to” for their CRM, Airtable will be a brilliant transition.

I haven’t found anything that I seriously dislike yet although I am having trouble figuring out how to utilize it best for my commercial real estate business.

Airtable can be used for almost anything!

What do you like best?

Airtable is an exceptional product. You can use it for almost anything you need, from a simple to-do list to a complicated spreadsheet. It has capabilities for custom sorting and applying any type of filter you can imagine. I really like the fact that I can integrate it with Slack so I get notifications in my Slack timeline when someone updates a task. It makes it easy to keep everyone up to date on how things are going without having to let them know in multiple locations.

What do you dislike?

The one dislike I have is their onboarding process. It is fairly annoying when you have been sent an invitation from someone to share a 'base' as they call them, and as soon as you create your account to login and access the base, you are shown multiple videos and 'helpful' tips that it would be nice to be able do dismiss and do later.

What do you like best?

As someone who has limited experience with databases, Airtable was a welcomed option. Easy, flexible, and simply looks great!

The things I dislike would have to be based more on my limited knowledge of dealing with databases and not so much with Airtable itself. Creating formulas is a bit of a learning curve but, again, that says more about me than the program.

It keeps everything organized and in one space, and saves a TON of emails. It also allows cross-collaboration across other departments by just adding the users.

It's crazy how many uses you'll find

What do you like best?

I was a huge spreadsheet fan and would use them to solve all kinds of business problems. Airtable is so much more flexible because it's also a database with an API. You can use it's many views (which are the key feature in my opinion) to display your data and interact with it in ways you never would in a spreadsheet. For example, in the kanban view, you can move entires across columns in kanban style, changing the value of a dropdown for that entry. It's fabulous.

What do you dislike?

I wish the views were all available on mobile, that's obviously a big challenge but a real bummer it's not available. I also think the API should have account level access to all your bases, not just to tables within a base. That one seems easy and very obvious.

Shows Promise - Not There yet

What do you like best?

Cross platform capability. Real time collaboration features. Customizable views to suit multiple users

What do you dislike?

Cloud hosting makes interface slow and laggy. Cloud hosting also raises security concerns. No option for local hosting and no intention to offer it soon. Lack of integration with mainstream office applications such as Microsoft OneNote or outlook. Continued UI bugs - particularly with file attachment system. Customer service responds quickly but has yet to take seriously any reported bugs or requests for feature upgrades.

Lack of any real tools to perform quantitative analysis

Rudimentary print interface limits usefulness as a report generation tool

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try.

Great for Visual Thinkers!

What do you like best?

The ability to view my tasks and plans in whatever visual mode my brain is feeling on a particular day.

Don't set yourself up to rely on the software before you've had plenty of time to figure it out!

Task management! A huge part of my work is event and training planning, and airtable allows me to map out every piece in detail and keep myself on top of easy to forget tasks and contacts. The multiple view options, and the option for a column to refer back to another table is what really makes it above and beyond other task management options for me.

Great tool for team collaboration & Communication, and project management

What do you like best?

Airtable has been a great tool for collaboration and communication on projects across several teams. We like the ability to share bases with various rights and privileges, and also the ability to share view only access with anyone at the agency via a link.

What do you dislike?

Currently, using the free version there is not an easy calendar view or gandt chart view like some other tools we've used. However, we will be upgrading to a paid version for improved features for this.

We started searching for products to use for project management, and Airtable is great for this, but also for team collaboration, team communication, and data tracking. It is also very flexible and customization.

Even after nearly a year, I'm only beginning to scratch the surface of its capabilities. But I love that we can view our information as a classic spreadsheet, on a calendar, in kanban mode, and more.

What do you dislike?

Not inexpensive for a small company (we have 13 people collaborating via the tool).

Lots of features, but can also be confusing.

What do you like best?

The tables can be very powerful and, when properly set up, provide a great way to communicate across the team about the status of specific projects.

What do you dislike?

If you're used to using regular spreadsheets, there are some limitations/differences that make Airtable confusing. There are also many features that require extra time spent to learn them and training the team.

There may be other products that are better for "beginner" task management types. This is sort of a blank slate, but there are lots of templates to get you started and you should definitely explore them.

Content Calendar Heaven

What do you like best?

The versatility. I can see my content calendar as a grid or calendar with the click of a button. Within those views, I can customize the fields to anything I like, which is so helpful when managing multiple social platforms.

I wish records would auto sort by date and time, and I wish you could add a new record between two existing records. This is minor though!

Great management tool for a non-profit

What do you like best?

Airtable has almost everything we need. Our team uses it for event management, network and engagement, and project updates. We track everything including bookings, deadlines, grants and expenditure. From our old spreadsheets, we transformed our data into a powerful system.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike to be honest. Becoming familiar with the app may take a while, but once you're set up and running, the world is your oyster.

I really appreciate the options and ability to have so much control over the tables and databases. You can create so many unique fields and columns to customize the databases to your exact needs. Even more so, I most like how easy it is to use!

What do you dislike?

So far I don't have many (or hardly any) complaints. The one feature I would like to see eventually is the ability to link databases together, rather than only being able to link tables within one database. But there are ways to work around this.

In working to keep a really simple UI there are things that can be really confusing and are hard to find. That being said, they get back to you by chat or email about any questions and guide you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Team collaboration mostly.

Organization & Interconnectivity Is Just...Wow

What do you like best?

The ability to link anything and everything to everything else, without being complicated and cumbersome. I can get the info I need quickly and easily.

What do you dislike?

Just one thing...Airtable isn't HIPAA compliant...yet. I work in Healthcare Information Technology (HIT), and I'm still using it in my organization, but not to it's full potential. Once it becomes HIPAA Certified, there will be nothing to dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The only thing that's lacking, for healthcare purposes, is HIPAA Certification.

I also plan to implement this to manage the many projects at my church. I think this would be perfect for it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A level or organization and collaboration like never before, especially with project management.

Great Lightweight Database/Spreadsheet Solution

What do you like best?

Airtable is easy to set up and easy for users to pick up and do the things they want. The interface is user friendly. Everyone we have introduced it to has found it easy to pick up. Blocks have been a great addition.

What do you dislike?

I think the biggest dislike is that you can't have a timestamp when a record is updated. This would be great and have a huge impact on how we use Airtable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Airtable is a great lightweight database solution that is easy for non-technical people to pick up and do advanced things with.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recruitment and Selection of teachers, work planning, applicant tracking, mostly centered around HR processes.

Easy To Use, Easy to Collaborate

What do you dislike?

I'm looking forward to being able to embed blocks.

Get everyone using it before making a "big switch." Everyone will come to the same conclusion that it is the right tool for a great number of jobs, but they need to use it to know that.

Membership database, basic data vis, better forms. With airtable, we can have and manage a database without having to manage a database.
