Pros: Fieldbook succeeds in creating a structure for organizing data. It has an intuitive priority matrix established within itself through its ability to sort higher priority items.

Cons: A disadvantage of Fieldbook would be the fact that you have to have access to internet capabilities. Because it is run based off of the cloud, there isn't an offline option as far as I am aware of.

Pros: I thought it was neat that the team could build books together. This allowed everyone to drop knowledge as they discovered it. It also made document sharing easy and concise. I appreciated having an easy way to check for updates or find relevant documentation to my issues.

Cons: I actually liked the software very much. After i got the hang of navigating around it was easy for me. Definitely surprised they are shutting down.

Overall: it was an easy way to build internal documents that could be updated and shared among team members. That was the feature I liked most from this product. It made sharing information easy and efficient.

This software is ready to be your day to day web-base spreadsheet and the app performs great.

Pros: It gives you the freedom to access data anywhere as per you have the cloud storage option, and it keeps data in rows and columns, as you would in a spreadsheet; but then you can link those columns to new sheets as well.

Cons: You'll need an internet connection to use it. It's also not possible (yet) to insert a formula into a single cell, but with future updates I think the software will be getting even better.

Overall: This has been one of best alternatives in regards to spreadsheets providers different from Excel, it helps us get organized with the needed files in place and you have access to them anywhere not just from your office.

Pros: I love this software and it's been very helpful in organizing all of the spreadsheets that I consistently use. I think my favorite feature would be the goal column, so that I can get a little recap on what the file's supposed to do, especially if they're similarly named.

Cons: You have to have the internet to use that, and when the wifi is down, the system is, as you would guess, useless. I understand the need for it, but that's not really a perfect program.

Personally, it has been very useful for me, because I have a lot of information that must be ordered

Cons: at this time they left the platform this is a setback, I thing they need to reconsider to not close the plataform.

Overall: It helps me to do my job more easily, to have it in a safe place and to be able to use the information in different ways.

Pros: This tool simply makes you feel like a Pro on spreadsheets. It's amazing how easy you can manage your database. Nice templates to use, easy to link different sheets, I would really recommend this.

Cons: Not that much to complain about but sometimes it takes too much time to follow commands I would say it's a server problem but I can live with it.

Pros: I have quite a few colleagues that just never got around managing spreadsheets well. While I am a bit of an Excel geek, I do realize it might not be as simple for those that do not have an IT background. They really liked Fieldbook for this.

Cons: The downside is that this is an online tool, and we find ourselves having to chase people to save spreadsheets internally.

Cons: It may be too simple, but at the same time it does not take away from the great power it has, and how effective it is to use for a small business.

Pros: How easy it was to use. It was easy to learn the functionality of this program and I found it a great benefit to be able to build and share a form over the internet as well as sharing via social.

Cons: I couldn't add a formula to a cell- like you can in excel- so that was a bit frustrating on my end. And the fact that you have to have internet in order to use- is a bummer sometimes - although most places have wifi- it wouldn't hurt to have an offline option.

Pros: I use this as a light-weight project-tracking sheet. 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. Making global changes across sheets when you make a change is a huge time-saver.

Cons: The tool would become more powerful if we could add some more customized formatting like colors. While its similar to excel in many respects, there is a bit of a learning curve which can be overcome if you go through their documentation and tutorials (both are quite good).

Overall: Accuracy and savings in time.

Pros: It is an excellent and innovative way to manage data in the cloud, why I do say this, because its main attraction practically allows you to manage a relational database in the cloud, this is fantastic, you do it through the spreadsheets, so in different files you can link the columns of one file with columns of another, making the possibilities of working and managing the data infinite, being able to print or show views of the results of the relations.

Cons: As it is a service in the cloud, it does not allow you to access when you are not connected to a network, and the relation service between columns will not enjoy it, if you were counting on a view and you do not have access, even if you have the files you will not be able to see, you must always keep this in mind.

Overall: To have a unique service of relations between columns of different files in the cloud, giving me the possibility of generating data in an unbecoming way, relating files and using the data of each one to carry out intelligent views among them.

Pros: Although there are several options for editing and saving files in the cloud and with more recognized companies, Fieldbook is a very attractive option and what makes it so original is a very good functionality that allows you to work with columns that are in other sheets, a behavior similar to a relational database, is something unique, when you have to keep many data linked and send them to different people, this helps you a lot, think about all the possibilities, you can also create views between several sheets , to show those values you need is great, its price is very good and it has a reliable system with few errors, besides being a cloud service, you can work together with other workers and get very good results.

Cons: It requires even add more features to create a more complete and striking application to the market, although its iteration between sheets in very good, still needs to improve much intelligent information systems, make a little more intuitive this functionality so that the average person can use it more easily

Overall: To be able to have a simulation of a database of relational data to create views on basic data for different purposes, be it working hours in relation to project, perosonal, server log and duration of jobs, etc., this application helps a lot in this sense and It has other good uses that everyone must discover.

Pros: Although there are several options for online management of spreadsheets and companies of great reputation such as windows and google, Fieldbook bet for some different features that give you a plus, for example the ability to load data from different sheets and link some columns with other something like a relational database, it is a very important plus that can help you in many tasks and perform calculations and substitutions that in other tools would take a long time, this is their main weapon and for which it is worth trying and use the tool.

Overall: Being able to simulate a relational database in excel sheets to manage data in different documents that communicate with each other.

Pros: This application is excellent to work your spreadsheets in the cloud, I use it for those files that are necessary to change at all times and not limit me to my desk or office, it gives you the freedom to access data anywhere, be a meeting or being on the road and someone asks you for information, really useful in that sense, the difference with other programs that do this and where it is most useful is that you can link several columns of different files, so when you modify a they modify all of them, it's great for workers' pay sheets where the bonuses that they give according to their salary that you have in other files are modified, this is a tremendous help.

Cons: The problem is that if you do not have internet you can not work on your files because it is a cloud program, this is a strong disadvantage if you have all files there, you must create backups and when your connection returns, update your files contained in the cloud.

Overall: Its biggest benefit and difference with other applications is the ability to link several columns and when a change is made in one affect all others that you selected, this is very useful when having several files with repeated information that must be changed in each one of them.

Pros: I love fieldbook. It is easy to use and create powerful relational databases. The support is great and they are very responsive. I had my first database up and running in less than an hour and, with a little help from support worked out the formulas to manipulate the data.

They are introducing new features all the time and run a regular live training webinar where they run you through the basics and answer your questions and walk you through any problems step by step.

I cant say enough good things about this software.

Cons: IT is a relatively new and there are some limitations at the minute. I cannot setup different views for different people. So, I wanted to be able to allow the agents to see their leads but not the other agents. This is not yet possible. There is a work around and it is on the their wish list.

Overall: I love this software. the learning curve was so fast considering its power and what it can do. I ran through the training videos a couple of times and followed along and I was ready to go. I had my own database up and running in less than an hour which blew me away. compared to other databases I have tried this is by far the easiest and yet powerful one I have used.

Pros: Sometimes I have some small set of data and I want to access them with code for displaying or analyzing. This is a very nice alternative to setting up a database because it is very intuitive to update the data. It is a great oportunity If you want to handle information. Easy to learn and use. Built in API was very useful. The support team are very helpful and quick to respond.

Cons: It should be an option for chating or sharing the sheets. It should be a great idea to have more promotions for small enterprises. But in general I really recommend this producto software.

Overall: Kind of reminds more of Lotus Notes, in terms of data handling (in "pages") but much more flexible in terms of use. No need for coding, you can easily add fields and link up multiple data views.easy to use, flexible to extend and modify, works good across multiple users accessing the same data.

Pros: Simple interface, and easy to use API to access the data programmatically. Pretty much has all the functionalities I use on Google Sheets. I have slowly moved a lot of my data from local excel or Google Sheets to here, so I can access it programmatically easily.

Cons: It was a bit buggy when I first used it end of last year, sometimes data will be saved two times, and sometimes will not be saved. Very rarely though, and probably was because of the internet, not sure. They have recently updated, I haven't had the issue for a while.

Overall: Sometimes I have some small set of data and I want to access them with code for displaying or analyzing. This is a very nice alternative to setting up a database because it is very intuitive to update the data.

Pros: It's a simple, well laid out product to easily produce effective databases. It could be a winner if they fix the cons below...

Cons: Their server can take ages to process a simple command and frequently fails - it's a very slow and frustrating user experience. Expect to see 'Error updating formula. This is our fault. Refresh the page and try again?' time and again. They need to invest in better server infrastructure. If they do this then it's a winner.

Pros: UI

Cons: Limitations that result from being a website

Overall: I made Fieldbook databases to track recipes by ingredient, track weekly project iterations, and log workouts. It does a great job for all three. Almost every time I imagine a new thing I want a database to do, Fieldbook has a button for it. And its auto-complete for formulae is amazing! Fieldbook is solid. It's far better for personal databases than any other spreadsheet and is nicer to use than anything by FileMaker, including Bento.

I do run into features that aren't there. Every once in a while, there will be a piece of data that you can't write a formula for, or a join that you can't write. But as I page through my databases, I'm having trouble remembering what they were because they were never crucial to getting the job done.

The phone interface is unusable. The UI is fine except that it's too slow. While entering data, I need to refresh the page every few minutes because the tab crashes.

Pros: A slick and simple user interface. Even untrained people can use it. And this is a User Experience Designer say it. So that means it's like a Rolls Royce ;)
Speed, responsiveness. Works amazingly fast. Never experienced any hiccups.

Cons: Still some features missing like national date formats, more sophisticated calculations.

Overall: We're an innovative education company founded in 2014 that is running multiple professional development programs in the digital design space.

Fieldbook gave us one location to capture and hold information about our participants and payments to be processed in one source.

It's very easy to build additional views (e.g. expected payments by participant, unpaid invoices by company) and we're exploring new ways how to integrate it into other communication channels (connect the database of our lecturers to serve as the data source for our website, etc.).

Recommendations to other buyers: Definitely give it a try. You'll be amazed how easy to use it is!

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.

Overall: I have been using FieldBook for about a year, and I must say it has come through with everything I throw at it. I am a CRM and Database Specialist for over 15 years and love how Dynamic and Powerful FieldBook is. Once you start building, you will find yourself constantly thinking of how you can take it to the next level, how to get more details but yet easier to mange. FieldBook has truly exceeded all expectations and can't wait to see what the future brings!

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)

Recommendations to other buyers: Be creative, and don't stop building. Picture any spreadsheet you have ever worked with but adding the ability to link everything together and grow to new levels. I have even used FieldBook to track eBay Products I sell, sales, and inventory.

Comments: As a test prep teacher and tutor, I am often teaching hundreds of students in numerous courses for various tests in any given week. Until Fieldbook came along, I couldn't find an efficient way to store all the essential information about these courses/students in one place. With just a couple copy/paste commands, I am able to input all the info I need into Fieldbook. So now when a student emails me with a question, a quick search for them in Fieldbook pulls up all the info about that student and their course that I need.

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.

Overall: In Fieldbook there's finally an app that fills the gap between easy-to-use spreadsheets and inaccessible databases. 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. I used to start such projects in Excel and then, when they'd get to complicated have to move them to MS Access, which always required a lot of time for set up, and has a notoriously unfriendly interface. Now I can start in Fieldbook straightway, or just copy spreadsheet data into it, and almost immediately get all the functionality of a Database.

Recommendations to other buyers: Add a way to run formulas over the multiple items linked to in a cell to yield multiple results.

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

Overall: Fieldbook brings the simplicity of Excel to the web, and allows seamless collaboration via a very intuitive user interface.

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.

Recommendations to other buyers: 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

Very helpful support!

Pros: structured data, simple interface, speed

Cons: maybe all the table lines? And the time it takes to re-orient my brain each time I click something and the view changes.

Overall: I started using fieldbook as a way to organize the engineering information for a product design company, with an eye towards using it as my go-to tool for organization of any kind, from personal to work life. For me, it's important to have ONE location where I store all the information in my life, so that I'm not constantly wondering where I stored a piece of info. That is the main reason I have come to accept Workflowy as my main organizational tool, and stopped using Fieldbook.

One thing that annoyed me about Fieldbook is a weird scrolling behavior. When I scroll down on a sheet, then try to scroll back up, it jumps up to another position, which becomes quite disorienting on a long list of items. I think the only other criticism I have of Fieldbook is that it can be a bit challenging, especially for new users, to find a "foothold" when looking for information. When pieces of data are linked together in different ways behind the scenes, and when all the different fields look exactly the same, it's difficult to understand the hierarchy of data. I know, the relational database mindset is that all the data is flat... but hierarchy always exists in our minds, so some way to visually understand that hierarchy I think is important. Perhaps you could provide access to CSS, so that certain fields can always be styled a particular way. This would make it easier to understand where you are in the data structure when you are suddenly launched to a new view.

Workflowy doesn't have structured data like Fieldbook, but the ease and speed of searching, and the undeniable simplicity of an indented list just makes it the better choice for me. Fieldbook may still be in my future, especially as my businesses grow. I think it's a solid tool, and I'm sure it works perfectly for many others who aren't obsessed with organizational tools like I am.

I know this is probably far away from your company goals, but what would get me excited is a tool that works and looks like workflowy, but incorporates structured data like fieldbook. Perhaps this could be a simple "skin" that just uses the data from fieldbook and displays it in a different way.

Cheers!

Ian

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep going! I have tried many software tools like this, including airtable, and this one just feels more solid, quick, and professional than airtable. Maybe look at how a search at the top level of a workflowy document instantly shows you all the items it matches along with their context in a very easy way to understand. I chose a '6' above because, unless I am talking to the owner of a big company with lots of complex data, I will most likely recommend workflowy.

Pros: Clean interface, good set of features, great free tier

Cons: Some missing functions, Excel-incompatible formula syntax

Overall: I've tried a few online database solutions and they tend to be over-designed to the point where it impacts functionality (e.g. Airtable). I like Fieldbook's presentation because expanding a record pulls all related records into the same view, which is a boon for anyone who has a large, densely interconnected database.

The only drawback to the experience is the formula syntax, which is different from Excel's and missing a few functions for date and string manipulation; also, the site itself sometimes stutters when dealing with databases with lots of columns.

I'm not currently using Fieldbook full-time because of the missing formula functions, however, the support team has been very helpful at providing assistance and taking feedback.

I'd recommend Fieldbook to people with databases which have complicated links between entries, and who want to be able to dive into an entry and see every related record at a glance. It's definitely a service whose development I'm following very closely.

Overall: My company uses Fieldbook to input and log videos that go into our phone app. This is the only thing I've ever used Fieldbook for . . . this is a temporary setup for us and I've found the workflow to be less than ideal.

As I said, I've never used Fieldbook for any other purpose besides this. I imagine it's a wonderful tool when it's used to accomplish goals that are in better alignment with its intended functionality.

Overall: Fieldbook, instead other solutions is "point and shoot." Is simple get the solution. You don't waste time thinking how-to-do, you can do it. It has a beautiful, simple and elegant design. And, most important, visually comfortable.
The system is slow with modifications as formulas in books with sheets of 3000 rows. You need to restart the browser several times in a day with big books. But is so practical that I prefer to wait for a solution instead try other solution.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you don't have large books, is the perfect solution.

Pros: Online, accessible with google login, seems to have great uptime (always available), supportive team

Cons: i don't feel like i'm an expert and using it to the full potential. i don't think i've properly built my database and organized my data

Overall: Fieldbook is an extremely friendly and versatile platform to build your database.
Being familiar with Excel and not currently using any database programs, I currently use Fieldbook to create databases that would typically be spreadout over a few excel workbooks.

It's friendly to sort, filter the exact data & search strings I need.

I use a personal edition & it's enough for what I need to do at the great price of $zero / month.

The Fieldbook team is very responsive to emails & their online help guide is excellent - well written with graphical examples.

Recommendations to other buyers: back up your data

Pros: Amazing power and capabilities

Cons: Easier onboarding and more mobile functionality

Overall: I really like Fieldbook and what it provides. I think there are some things that can be done to improve its functionality for what I need in terms of understanding functionality, features for mobile, etc., but overall if you need to quickly create an interface for data that give you incredibly powerful capabilities, then Fieldbook is an excellent choice.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great product. Use it.

Pros: it's simplicity

Cons: no integrations

Overall: Despite the minimalist interface, Fieldbook is really powerful and has a good API. The simple interface eases acceptance by corporate users. Unfortunately it cannot profit from integrations by IFTTT, Zapier & co, but it's a matter of time.

Recommendations to other buyers: 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.

It's pretty good, I'm sure at some point it will get to great.

Pros: I picked it up relatively quickly.

Cons: I cannot make some basic changes that I would like to be able to.

Overall: It seems to be very intuitive but there are some fields and processed that I would like to see even more simplistic. For what I'm paying ($0), it's great. I'm surprise more people I talk to are not using it or heard of it.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think it has huge potential.

Pros: Ability to link between sheets.
Filters.

Cons: Can't write paragraphs with line spacing in boxes

Can't highlight entries.

Overall: I started using Fieldbook as I wanted a better way to manage the contacts, budget and other information involved in my TEDx event. I wanted a way to link information together to between sheets and Fieldbook was exactly what I was looking for. The ability to click into individual entries really helped provide clarity when pursuing the information. The filters and hiding column function is great as well. My one little grief is the inability to highlight certain boxes and entries. But otherwise, I definitely recommend fieldbook over Sheets and Excel.

Recommendations to other buyers: A much more intuitive way to organize data than excel and google sheets.

Pros: Extremely intuitive and easy to use. Powerful feature set. Easy to build a database quickly and flexible enough to make changes to the underlying structure down the line. We use it for entire business processes and to build strategies and evaluation for clients.

Cons: I would love Zapier integration!

Overall: Have been using Fieldbook now for about 9 months. It has opened up a world of possibilities for designing and developing database driven services for our consultancy and our clients. The support is out of this world (literally ask a question and get an answer usually within 10 minutes. There is so much potential for this app!

Comments: Fieldbook is what I have always wanted Google Sheets to do - support relational data!

As a past MS Access junkie and current aPaas nut, I am searching for a fast, clean and AFFORDABLE way to create solid database driven web apps. I currently use LongJump.com (aka AgileApps). I stopped increasing/advancing my development in LongJump since I found it did not scale well. Years ago the management team decided to limit the number of times you could run a process on your data to 50 a day. This was a showstopper. Plus, the cost to store data was painfully high. How can AWS offer data GBs of storage for pennies? I suspect these limits and costs are why the platform did not become popular and the company was sold to a German business (Software AG). I recently got into Progress Rollbase. It's pretty good but the terrible search has stopped me cold. My users must be able to find the data they need!

So far, Fieldbook solves my cost and clean design needs.

What Fieldbook is missing for me in order of importance...

*** Lack of custom form design...
Managing a task well can often turn into requiring many dozens of fields. Even a customized form can become dopey over time if it requires the user to scroll through many feet of interface. Most aPaas platforms have collapsible sections to solve this. That's a great start, but don't stop there. I strong suggest you support "tabs" so that a section can have horizontal tabs. By offering both section and tab elements, even a form with 100+ fields will appear to be tidy and clean, offering only the info the user wants to drill down to.

On a related note, a hot trick for good form design is to create a Summary section at the top of the form that uses calculated fields, pulling the most useful info (Account & Contact name, City & St, best phone #, client type, last order date, total sales, etc.) into an easy to absorb summary. This approach can allow a form that has many sections to initially be displayed as collapsed - nice and clean!

*** Triggers by data event or on a schedule
LongJump calls them Data Policies. Once I have my data stored, I want to act on it. Perhaps a Zapier integration could solve this.

Thanks again for taking on relational databases!

Comments: I've only been using Fieldbook for about a month now, but I've found it to be well-integrated and effective while I'm completing work projects. It offers a sound platform for compiling and accessing data, however some of the features still experience slow, lagging effects. If the application of these glitches are improved, this program would be bulletproof and I'd advise many companies to try it out. Well worth the money, especially for low-budget organizations and start-ups.

Comments: I heard about Fieldbook as a "relational spreadsheet" app. It's really handy¿imagine Excel, but you can link and autopopulate fields on one sheet to different fields and columns in another, without writing complicated formulas.

I've been using Fieldbook as a WYSIWYG database to track web hosting and registrars and domain names with their associated costs. It's cool to fill out a row, then click on a field to create a new "entry" in a another sheet automatically. And you can auto-group your sheets by column as well.

I've encountered a few weaknesses:
1. it seems you can only export one sheet at a time
2. sometimes the filters and grouping views and sorting are confusing, and you can lose track of what state your spreadsheet is in

Pros: Ease of use, excellent support and a great productivity tool. I am using this tool extensively for the current large IT-AV project I am managing.

Cons: Other than some minor restrictions on how groups and filters work there is nothing else that I have come across yet.

Overall: Very easy tool to use with an excellent support. It's very easy to get stated and if you have experience with excel then using Fieldbook is a no brainier. It's quite simple to develop different views of the data and the best is the ease of linking tables and data. Last but not least is the support which is excellent. Kudos to @jasoncrawford and the team for the job well done.

Pros: Many people already have spreadsheets developed and they're usually related in some way. This allows you to relate fields by drag and drop and combine spreadsheets easily. Way easier than Access.

Cons: The only thing I recommended to the owner was to be able to copy an entire spreadsheet page over to a new one rather than use the copy and paste function.

Overall: I wish I had more time to dive in and use this awesome tool. Instead of the plethora of spreadsheets that I have which are related, I am able to easily connect the information (drag & drop) on a common field and link the information which has been invaluable and what a timesaver. Also, I can do with Fieldbook what I've never had the time to do with Access.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try. You will not be disappointed. And your office efficiency will increase.

Pros: its free and it has many available features.

Cons: it does not have a notification system

Overall: Overall good experience. The only comment I have to improve this app would be to have a notification system when a job is flagged and or completed notifying the other user. Currently, I use it to manage jobs and it would be nice to notify when a job is active, completed etc. This feature would go a long way.

Recommendations to other buyers: build a notification system that alerts users when an action is triggered.
