Pros: It's so easy to setup and create linked databases from a few spreadsheets. I was able to get my team motivated around how data can empower their work.

Cons: There are a few limitations that we're hoping will be addressed in future updates including the ability to lock specific tables and views within bases and link data across bases. You can work around those limitations, but those changes would make this tool even more powerful.

Pros: Allows team to create/tailor templates/databases for any project or as a CRM tool. You can add endless amounts of information Airtable is easy to customize, easy to explain to non-techies, and has helped us graduate from confusing and fragile shared spreadsheets to a system we know we'll be able to share without endless fixes and tweaks

Cons: No Print or View Mode that allows formatting of entries on a PDF or web interface Can't write math formulas in cells directly, need to have multiple columns and then sum/multiply them.

Comments: If you are wanting a hybrid between a Trello like productivity software and the old-school spreadsheet that you have been working with for years, check out Airtable!

Pros: If you can think it, you can do it with this software. You are in control and it is easy to see that power. The calendar view is incredible!

Cons: There is a slight learning curve (the entire concept is entirely new) It can be difficult to know where to start.

Pros: I have recommended this system to every person I meet that have this specific need. Within my business, we use it for mapping out our weekly social media posts. I love that the images can be viewed in the spreadsheet. It makes it super fast for our copywriter to go in and quickly write the captions. Every person I've recommended this system to has LOVED it.

Pros: This is a great product to help manage social media posts for different platforms, and for keeping organized when planning. We can keep all of the information is one place, and then add where it should all go, and add dates to it. It is great for content management.

Cons: Some things that can be challenging with this software is that some of our older users have a harder time navigating the software. They need something a little more straight forward, where this program has more going on. We have needed to talk our older users through it a few times.

Overall: This software is great for content management. It keeps our team organized. We can add content and then put dates on when it needs to go out. We also use different seeds for different social media platforms, we can house all of those seeds in the software.

Pros: the look of the Airtable and the options to easily add content. I am able to monitor the trackable items for compliance. The ability to share with options is an advantage.

Cons: Recovering accidental deletes is a challenge. The ability to sort and/or the ability to filter would be beneficial for tracking purposes.

Overall: This software and its purpose are very suitable for the tracking of regulated required functions in our organization.

I've used Airtable to develop powerful solutions for shared equipment, facilities, and purchases.

Pros: 1. It's easy to use AND extremely powerful--a very unusual combination for relational database applications.
2. You can quickly access and edit your information from anywhere using your phone, tablet, or computer.
3. You can easily collect information from others via custom forms and share information using shared views.
4. You can view your information in many different ways depending on your needs--spreadsheet, calendar, gallery, and kanban.
5. You can perform all kinds of mathematical operations on items in your database in order to help with evaluating and predicting resource uses.

Cons: 1. I wish I could share some tables between bases or hide tables that I don't usually need to visit. I'm getting to the point where I have so many tables in the same base that it feels a bit overwhelming.
2. I don't see a way to get my information out of the database in a form that clearly preserves the relationships, formulas, and attachments (beyond exporting to CSV files). It's a major investment of time and energy to create these databases and it makes me nervous that the company could stop supporting the product at anytime (remember DabbleDB).

Ease, ease, ease.

Pros: We use Airtable for a variety of uses at our organization. The primary use is intaking wholesale orders and organizing PO's and delivery schedules around these orders. Having found QB Online to not have the management and layout capabilities we need and not quite ready to invest in costly management software, Airtable has been a great tool to quickly and easily manage our rapidly changing information.

Another use has been to manage vendor site visits using the form view. Our vendor assessor really likes the ease of use in creating forms and then entering data into a form versus in the main base. The ability to incorporate pictures and documents has been very helpful as well.

The tutorials and templates have been very helpful when we first set bases and junctions tables.

Cons: While much better than Excel or Google Sheets, it would be nice to have some of their features (multiple line pasting, the ability to use different formula's within a field).

Pros: I needed to find a Database program that would allow me to create a form, track the data, manage our volunteers and assign and track information that we get from the form. This data base was very easy to use. I created the form and tested it. Super easy. I have been using the free version for several months and just upgraded. Worth paying for.

Cons: My only complaint is with the form. You put the questions you want answered in, but there isn't an option to provide multiple choice selections allowing us to get specific answers.

Overall: All of the information I need is in one place.

Comments: Love the color and creativity. If we could automate functions and set auto reminders, I believe that we would use the paid version instead!

Pros: This product is colorful and easy to use! I love that it pretty much can be built to your liking. Can also be used via phone or tablet to upload photos.

Cons: It takes time to create and it really needs to be able to automate from within airtable so that you don't have to pair with a program like zapier. Also with mobile use, bases lose some functionality

Most user-friendly data base we could find in the cloud!

Pros: Airtable combines the reporting features of a spreadsheet with the performance of a multi-layer database. Easy to understand for every user, super customisable fields and views and many add-ons made me decide to replace other tools with Airtable.

Overall: Reporting and collaboration efficiency, good user experience across the organisation due to it's self-explanatory user interface.

Airtable was performant and straight-forward since its first version and adds more and better features with every upgrade, thanks to intense feedback gathering from its user community.

AirTable has been a game change in how I manage and display data.

Pros: I love how easy it is to add and manipulate data. Connecting a table to other tables happens in seconds. The ability to embed a publicly viewable embed makes displaying data super easy.

Cons: Beta features typically don't come with any documentation so it can be tough to understand how to use a new feature. Their support forum is sometimes useful, but it seems email is quicker and more thorough.

Overall: Gone are the days of setting up my own database. I can now set one up in seconds and publicly display the data on my website for my visitors.

We use it to create product databases and even action items like ticket systems and workflow.

Pros: This software is not like an excel spreadsheet. It is much more user friendly than microsoft access. I like most the ease of use and metadata storage capabilities. I have used it to house our company taxonomy terms and relationships.

Pros: Last year I was on the search for a solution to replace XLS and found Airtable. Previously we were using microsoft xls, as we found even GoogleDocs didn't work for our purpose.

We produce hundreds and up to thousands of products for one event and previously used xls to keep track of production and for by line item invoicing purposes. The ability to have all the data in one spreadsheet but then filter things out in a specific view that allows you to see only what you want is useful and makes it so you don't have to have multiple spreadsheets with the same data. For example we have an invoicing view, that's filtered easily to show costs. Then a post event inventory view where clients can see what they can use for next event. We also have a QC view where our team members can easily QC the product without all the unnecessary data in their view/way. We also use filters to easily show us what still needs to be approved and what is left to be produced for the event. It's a been a great way for us to manage large scale projects and our clients love it. Also, the fact that it has a phone app is helpful to us since we work events, we are constantly on the road traveling and not always at a computer.
The ability to download the spreadsheets is simple also, so when I need to create an XLS file to accompany our invoice, this is simple and easy for me to do.

Cons: The #1 priority for improvement that every Airtable user complains about is the lack of restrictive access. Access is "all or nothing" so if I give my clients "Read" access, they're only limited to one view and can't edit or note anything. If we give them "Edit" access they are able to edit anything in our entire database, including our pricing, so that doesn't work. We want, for example, a customer to be able to go and note/change info for one column and not be able to add/remove anything. For example they could go in and put "approved" for a line item that they approve for production, but can't change any cells not in that column.

I'm not confident in their tech support at this time . Recently we had some data loss issues that created mass concern. We added data to specific cells in an existing spreadsheet, and the next day the data was gone. Airtable keeps record of any change in a cell and there was no record of us ever entering the data, like it never happened. We provided specific examples and their explanation of "packet loss" on our end makes zero sense. Based on data that we entered that day, we added a photo, then added a date, photo, then date... all the photos stuck, the dates did not, so it would mean that every other second a packet data loss happened? They still haven't given a suitable answer to this, and if you can't rely on the data you enter being there, that's made us think twice about moving to the paid version, which we were about to.

Overall: We can have many views of the same data in one place without duplicating the data. Each person can have their own view based on the data they need to see. The biggest benefit we've had is time saving and the ability to access this data anywhere, at any time.

Pros: The fact that you can build the tool you need and that in that process the conversation your team will have is very valuable. Airtable is not an out-of-the-box just but more like Lego bricks and the (almost) only your own imaging that set the boundaries. So you need to ask the right questions about what is it you want to do and know? Which information do you need and what do you want to be able to do with it. When you ask that questions in a team you will have a great conversation about goals, ways of working, differences in need etc.

Airtable provides you with a variety of tools to make this happen but you need to take the time to build your tool. If you don't and "just" use it as a spreadsheet you won't use the real potential of it.

We have used Airtable to keep track of a complex website, booking a video equipment, project, ideas, teachers projects and more. One of the most powerful things about Airtable is that you can create different views and then create different processes.
An example is that we have a table with activities for teaching that we publish on our website. We needed a process for reviewing text for errors, a process for reviewing which activities we should share and not share, a process for which activities we had cases for etc. Doing that in Trello would mean multiple boards. in Airtable we could just create a new view with the same records.

Cons: I will say that hardest part about Airtable is understanding the logic behind it and that it is something else than a spreadsheet. I took me some time, and it has been hard explaining it to my colleagues.

Overall: I can now build the tool I need. And since my (and my teams) needs changes with time I can modify my Airtable bases to match that.

When you build your own tool with Airtable you will need to ask good questions about your need and goals and if you're in a team this can start a very good conversation.

It's much easier for me now to get not lost track of a big and complex project because I can split it into smaller parts that more understandable.

With features like formula and roll-up, I can setup my base to quickly show me some important information. Like how many urgent task within an acitivity.

Pros: Airtable is both a great database and table app. The best point is the ability to link very easily data between different tables. Possibilities are numerous and many new features appear regularly.

Pros: Since we don't have an insider IT team the transition from normal spreadsheets to Airtable have been very smooth. Along a pivoting process we're facing - towards a data-driven mindset - Airtable has been our main base to upload the clean data and to generate better insights about our the communities. Considering Airtable's flexibility we strongly recommend it for non-profits in which operations don't fit perfectly in normal sales pipeline.

Cons: There are some lacking features that would be amazing to use. In our case, specifically, data-visualization models and graphs would save a lot of time in creating integrations and donwloading/uploading data.

Overall: Airtable allow us to manage and organize our data in a user-friendly way, creating a smoother transition between a non-connected database mindset toward a complete and easy data management way of working.

Airtable has helped us condense all of our unrelated spreadsheets into one database that interacts.

Pros: The thing we have found most helpful with this software is the ability for all of the different sheets to "talk" with each other. Much of our information is needed in multiple places, entering the same information several times always leaves room for error and takes up so much time so to only have to enter everything once helps us out immensely. The different views on each sheet helps us to only see the information needed at the time. Running a 17-day festival requires a lot of information and organization, the multiple views makes it easy to see what we need at any given moment.

Cons: One feature that we would like to have is the ability to temporarily highlight cells. Often times this shows us that something has changed, or to call out several different things to a particular group, or even to keep track of updates as they happen.

It was incredibly easy to transfer some of our existing tools into a base.

Pros: Our team really likes Airtable's view feature, the number of integrations available with other platforms, and how easy it is to email records out to contacts.

Cons: Our team really doesn't like the color palette available; and some clunkiness when deleting records (hitting "Delete" button on macs sends us back a webpage).

Overall: Easily scaleable database.

3) Users can be added, deleted, and assigned roles with ease
4) Lots of templates to use as a jumping off point
5) Hilarious example data in the templates which makes it fun to explore and just generally adds a little bright spot to my day.

Cons: It took a minute to figure out that the cost is per member per team (not per base), but even that isn't something I dislike, so much as something that I didn't fully understand until I started playing around with it.

Overall: Reduces the number of databases that we have to individually maintain and is MUCH more user friendly.

Pros: We were looking for a collaborative tool that had the data forward presentation of a spreadsheet but with the power of a database. We looked at a variety of products in this space and settled on Airtable as the best option. We're early in our deployment, but so far, so good.

Cons: There are a few limitations that we're hoping will be addressed in future updates including the ability to lock specific tables and views within bases and link data across bases. You can work around those limitations, but those changes would make this tool even more powerful.

Overall: It is simple enough that our multi-generational Development team is able to understand it without a whole lot of training. Additionally, it is highly customizable which allows that team to re-engineer its approach to data in a more flexible way. That's huge for us since with previous tools we've often found that important data doesn't always come up in the planning process or that data needs change over time.

Pros: It's incredibly easy to use, bordering on fun to use (massive statement for a database application). It's easy to share and easy to publish. I can fiddle around with it forever and continuously find new and interesting applications for the tool across many projects in my life in and outside of work.

Cons: For what I'm using it for, it's pretty perfect. I can foresee it being improved with strong built-in data analytics and a more robust kanban implementation. They just improved the calendar view, but it's still pretty restrictive. I haven't tried using it at enterprise scale (100s or 1000s of records) but I'm not confident it would be great for very large teams working with very large amounts of data.

Overall: Organizing information relationally and being able to sort/filter/visualize/share it flexibly and easily. All day, every day.

Pros: This is the product we've been looking for years! We're using it to centralize all our studio and gallery information from the past 13 years (images, press links, participants) into this awesome database. It's friendly, easy-to-use online collaborative features that are orders of magnitude better than using spreadsheets. Especially useful is the different views options which allow you or your collaborators to only look at the relevant data- a real timesaver when you have many, many columns of data and many, many tables of related information.

Cons: Reports feature could be better, but this product is pretty new so I will assume they are working on it. Also, not a dealbreaker by any stretch, but a chat feature would be useful while collaborating.

Overall: A huge step up from cumbersome ugly spreadsheets.

Airtable is easy to use and can interpret a lot of data.

Pros: Ease of use, sharing capabilities, remote access and much more! Airtable has allowed our organization to virtually go paperless, which has been a goal for a long time. Large teams can collaborate on a project and have instant access to the same information. We use it for tracking class enrollment, storing customer data, organizing and tracking marketing data and plans, staff schedules - plus so much more! Airtable has truly been an amazing addition to our organization and we recommend it to anyone looking for a user friendly data solution.

Cons: We would like to be able to add headers and footers to tables before printing, currently we export to csv to add this info, it is not ideal, but it works. We also would utilize an end date field (for, in our case, noting date ranges for classes that run weekly for a span of time). We have heard that this feature is going into BETA though, so we hope to see that as an option soon. The phone app is a bit limited in features, for instance linking to other tables, but we can also work around this and usually are working desktop versions anyway.

Best user experience I've ever had with an app.

Pros: 1. It works.
2. It's easy-to-use.
3. The product and company feels *friendly* the app wants you to be successful at using it. It's the best app on-boarding experience I've ever seen too, with great emails explaining how to use the products, and lots of tutorials and templates.

Cons: Very little, truly. I'm yet to get angry about it. *Maybe* it would be better if links could be made more easily *across* databases, rather than just within (e.g., an "importrange" function), but honestly the integration with Zapier makes this easy enough.

I enthusiastically recommend Airtable, I'm transitioning most of my nonprofit to it.

Overall: Providence Student Union is now using Airtable to manage the majority of its data. Almost anything relevant to nonprofit can be done easier and better in Airtable than in Google Sheets, etc.

Pros: Airtable is very light and user-friendly software. It helps me organize efficiently tasks and simple projects and collaborate with other colleagues on web-based platform. The customer support work fantastic and they do offer 50% discount on billing for non profit organization like us. We are discovering more features of Airtable and inviting more users to try this wonderful application.

Cons: Airtable should develop its formatting for the users to view wrap text, provide print view and pdf print, custom reporting.

Overall: organize things and collaborate with others

I am continually surprised by how powerful Airtable can be to visualize our data and workload!

Pros: The ability to establish different views is the most powerful feature of this relational database software. We track our donations to our non-profit using Airtable. We are able to easily group, sort, and filter our donations by fiscal year, amount, who made the donation, etc. We are then able to set up the fields needed to make sure that they were appropriately sent a thank you note. Airtable bases are able to organize our departments better than they ever have been before.

Cons: There is a slight learning curve with Airtable, but that could be expected with any new software system. In my experience, once our team caught onto Airtable fundamentals, they were good to go and saw the enormous power and simplicity of AirTable--looks like a spreadsheet, but acts like a database.

Overall: We are switching over many of our functions to Airtable. We are planning on moving over our donor management to Airtable, and program management to Airtable.

Pros: It's easy to mold Airtable to fit exactly what we need. We've used this product for smaller projects in the past, but are excited to make it a bigger part of how we organize our work. The level of organization it allows will free up a lot of time and give us the ability to have all of our information stored in one place rather than in several shared documents that are easy to lose. We also love how easy it is to integrate Airtable with other applications!

Very fine product but need to be internationalized.

Pros: We like very much the reactivity of costumer support and also the features like connecting tables, making Forms with the answers who directly organize themselves in Creator mode.

Cons: We are sad that there is no french version, like for the phone number it only allows US way. Or to limit the number of characters allowed for an answer.

Also, an "if else" question mode would be created in forms. For exemple :
Q1a : do you have any pets
A1 a: Yes or No
If Yes selected Ask Q1b : Give their name A1b : blank
Else Go directly to question 2

Overall: We organize TEDx events and we have to deal with 120 contributor at each event. It helps us to organize them fastly and simply.

Pros: It's very easy to setup and organise information which is related to each other. Working together on a database is also very easy. The different views and grouping information are powerful tools.

Cons: Not all sorts of fields are usable within web forms and it would be nice to lock the data in some fields.

Overall: All the information on projects, stakeholders, finance, curriculum and so on in one place!

Pros: It integrates well with Zapier. We capture data from Google Forms that require tracking and quantitative reporting. Airtable has made this process really simple without all the other fluff typically found in CRM platforms. I can customize everything I need to for my purpose of application processing.

Cons: The help files GIFs and Videos move too fast. I would also like to be able to create sections in the forms and conditional formatting. Although I can create a view to print data, I would like to be able to create and save custom reports.

Overall: SAVES ME TIME and keeps my data clean ! No more multiple spreadsheets which, as you know, is always an invitation for errors. Thank you so much for automating my process.

Pros: This software is amazing. It basically allows you to build custom applications. More powerful than a normal spreadsheet and way easier to use than a database, this software is great for organizing just about anything. You can set up a "base" to manage projects, plan a product launch, share feedback, and many more.

Cons: Their API is limited, you can only access at the "base" level and below, you can't access accounts to get a list of bases. If you could, you'd be able to share data across bases which would be fantastic.

Overall: For a fraction of the price of a project management app or a CRM, I've built both in Airtable and they work beautifully.

Pros: This is the most customizable, easy-to use data tracking app I've ever used, and is ideal for small business tracking, team collaboration, and so much more. It's like a living spreadsheet that you can collaborate with anyone on, with the flexibility of so many different custom fields (from photos, custom tags, people's names, time stamps, the list goes on and on). I've personally used it for a social media calendar, sourcing content (articles, books, etc) with different folders for authors, titles, etc., client tracking, etc.

Cons: Nothing. For the value (free or close to free) this app has so many customizable features that I couldn't expect anything more.

Pros: Easy to upload data directly into the system. Once uploaded, the various field types, plus a strong API documentation section for each base make it easy to get going. Our team has been able to work through systems enhancements and trial out new field types quickly and with minimal disruption.

The example bases have been interesting to browse as we look for new data points to track in Airtable, and collaboration tools and commenting allow for us to keep each other updated on relevant changes to our system in near real-time. I am really excited to see where the roadmap for product development takes this tool moving forward.

Cons: Limited audit trail info on the free plan as well as bulk-update support (beta features may allow for this down the line for paid users).

Cons: The solo vs. team plan was confusing at first glance but their customer support staff was quick to respond and help me get the right plan for our organization.

Pros: Airtable is incredibly flexible. It makes it easy to view lots on information from many perspectives, and it's very well designed.

Cons: It would be nice if there were a global view of all recent activity within a base. That would make it easier to catch up on activity without jumping around quite so much.

Pros: The ability to have powerful and meaningful database functionality online is awesome. The collaboration features make it incredibly easy to get your entire organization up and running with databases.

Cons: We find it hard to pinpoint a feature or policy that is detrimental to how we currently work. We are just now moving into a payment structure with Plus or Pro functionality. We are a little confused on which to choose but we have not reached out to customer support and we know that we can change month to month. We are very satisfied with the service being provided by AirTable.

Overall: We use Google products extensively at our school and the one SaS (software as a service) that we longed for was an online database. AirTable has the features and collaboration that we require to manage our data effectively and efficiently online.

Our volunteers were skeptical, but now they LOVE it!

Pros: Airtable is easy to customize, easy to explain to non-techies, and has helped us graduate from confusing and fragile shared spreadsheets to a system we know we'll be able to share without endless fixes and tweaks. The ability to take in data from easy-to-use forms has been a great feature - volunteer film screeners add their film reviews without ever having to touch (or break) the underlying database.

Customer service has been excellent - very responsive and helpful.

Cons: It would be really helpful to have the ability to "unsort" records back to their original order. We found a workaround for this, so it's a small quibble. Otherwise, we're very happy with it so far.

Overall: More robust system for tracking submitted films through the review and selection process, and keeping a centralized record of submitted and selected films from year to year. We expect also to be able to use Airtable for 1) traffic management as we develop the festival program and 2) treating our invited filmmakers with kid gloves before, during, and after their visit to Sebastopol!

Absolutely thrilled with Airtable!

Pros: Airtable (and their team) has been an incredible additional resource to our operation here at UT. The software is feature-rich and the expansion of new features is exciting. We have been able to streamline our approach to organization and data sharing in a way that we haven't been able to before.

Cons: What the software does, we love. We are looking forward to the addition of features that allow for greater permission-based data manipulation and other custom view options that will allow for the display of certain information in a specific format.

Pros: As spreadsheet nerds, Airtable has been so exciting to learn and implement. It has been an absolute game-changer for our organization. The software is incredibly easy to use and offers so many fantastic features. We are only using this as a grants database for now but will implement a tasks pipeline using the Kanban view shortly. The features available to us have been so helpful, many of which we didn't even know we would enjoy so much. The ability to sort, group and filter with just 2 clicks has been amazing. We have also enjoyed having the ability to share the workspace with others while keeping the screen on different views for each person. The ability to link columns to other tabs has been extremely helpful - it wasn't a feature we thought we would need until we tried it. The price is great for its many features and it makes this a real possibility for any business, especially nonprofit organizations of any size with any budget. We are really happy with Airtable.

Cons: I do wish Airtable had the ability to export to Excel as well as the ability to adjust the height of rows. Those are my only two suggestions.

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. The free platform is great . I've been deploying solutions for my clients left and right. They have an excellent rewards structure for referring clients.

Cons: I would like the ability to have more granular control over the experience. I'd like the ability to resell the solutions I create. I wish they had a more Filemaker like graphical interface design element. Inline code execution would also be great.

Pros: This software is basically free and extremely easy to use and set up. It's also so simple to share data tables through links to the table or downloadable .csv's. You can add new people to collaborate in many ways, and it is completely accessible online (desktop or phone/tablet). It's so easy to create multiple select choices, add documents and photos, rearrange tabs, create surveys that populate the spreadsheet. It's just very useful.

Cons: The two features I don't like is the lack of .pdf creation for the tables so that they appear just like they do online. I want my photos to be there just as they look in the individual views. The second is the new charge they added just to have photos or headings in your survey. It's very expensive the fee price and yet a much needed addition. I can't have a survey in each base with photos without upgrading each base to get that privilege.

Overall: In the cloud access that everyone on my team can use.

It's easy to get going with Airtable if you're familiar with Excel but it's so much more powerful! I use it for everything ¿ from project management, to donation tracking, to landscape mapping, to managing my interactions with partners. It's amazing and has made my life so much easier.

Cons: I wanted to make it a bit easier to use my data to produce reports. However, Airtable is beta testing its block functionality which makes it easy to build dashboards and graphs!

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

Pros: Very easy to use and figure out if you've used Excel, Google or other database products. Linking fields are pretty idiot proof and allow you to segment your data in different tables. Field types cover a variety of data sources. You don't have to be a programmer to figure this out. For those of us who don't work on networked machines, this allows us to collaborate over the Internet but still download and save versions of the base periodically. Also, for those of us who need quick access to the information without having to open the computer, open the program and perform a complicated find, the iPhone app is useful.

Cons: Wish there was a way to view all of the data for one record in one screen without having to scroll all the way through a form.

Pros: I like that you can upload files, and link tables too each other so it's easy to have all my information in one place. I also like that it automatically saves, so I don't need to worry about losing information. I like that you can colour code things as well, so you can see at a glance where you're at. I also like that you can choose different functions for different columns. The program is very user-friendly and SO much better than Excel.

Cons: Sometimes when linking tables it creates weird data at the end of the sheet. For instance, I have a bunch of random suburbs at the bottom of one of my tables, but I'm scared to delete them in case I lose data. It's not a huge deal, but I do have to delete them if I want to export the data and use it elsewhere. Customer support can also be a bit slow, I think because they are based out of the
US.

Overall: Better clarity and efficiency in my work.

Pros: Simple and intuitive to use. I had the basic design for my CRM completed in minutes. Linking tables and adding fields as my needs evolved was also a breeze. I was able to simplify a lot of my work processes into simple data entry with the help of Airtable. The help documentation is useful for brainstorming new ways of organizing my data.

Cons: Some formatting, such as changing how a date is displayed, requires specific knowledge of formulas. I feel like there could be an easier way for this to be built in as an option.

Overall: There¿s so many integrations I am not even using yet, but I can see so many possibilities for automation down the line! Airtable is also highly affordable for my small non-profit organization.

Overall: This saves me a lot of time in my work week, and saves me from a lot of organizational headaches.

So impressed with Airtable

Pros: I run a nonprofit law firm and Airtable has made us exponentially more productive.

We have a base for fundraising where we input donors, and then input their donations as they occur. Airtable tracks donations by date, and also by donor, which makes sending end of year donation letters a breeze.

We also have a base for our client list that we can use to check for conflicts. Where we used to have to manually input client information into a spreadsheet, we now have them fill out a form that sends everything to the client base. This has cut down on time spend doing administrative tasks drastically, and also eliminated our need for many paper forms. Customizing the form feature is a paid service, and one that we didn't think twice about upgrading for. As a nonprofit (and one that lives on a tight budget), I think this is saying a lot. But the monthly fee is well worth it.

Not only is Airtable easy to use, but it's also visually appealing.

Cons: I have only tweaked templates. Making my own bases from scratch ¿ even as a fairly tech-smart person ¿ has been a bit difficult. Luckily they have great templates, so I've been able to get everything I need. I'm sure if I spent a bit more time on it, it would come together, but there hasn't been a need for that.

It has helped streamline our communications and information sharing significantly.

Pros: Forms pulling information into spreadsheets is amazing. The ease of use allows us to streamline repetitive functions and information sharing. Linking info is hugely helpful as well!

Cons: I wish the linking of information was easier to access from other sheets. Makes people assigning hard for them to easily see their assignments.

Overall: This has eliminated the multiple google sheets we have. It has made gathering outside content so simple!

Wonderful!

Pros: Clean, lightweight, works great in browser and as a standalone app. Perfect amount of features. Has everything that's needed and no bloat.

We've been using Airtable to keep a database of all our students, student applications their parents. The difference in productivity after moving from excel/google tables has been immeasurable.

Cons: When you add a field in a specific place in one view it becomes the rightmost field in every other view.

Overall: It greatly streamlined our workflow in managing student and parent databases.

Pros: We've migrated several of our Operations Office processes to Airtable and couldn't be happier. Not only is Airtable easy to use, it's easy to integrate. It might not do everything we need, but by linking tools, like Zapier, it's so simple to manipulate data and let the data trigger actions in the other software that we use every day.

For example, we've built a base to track key distribution for our 210,000 sq. ft. facility. We have a table with records for each of the 858 unique keys in our inventory, which links to a table where we track all of the keys issued to individuals. With filtered views, it's easy to see who has past due keys or which rooms are at the greatest security risk. And because it's all web-based, we don't have to worry about who checks in a key because everyone's base is updated in real time.

As a relational database, Airtable lets you establish connections between two complex tables. We can click on a person to see all of the keys they've been issued, or we can click on a key to see all of the people who have it.

Not only are our processes more efficient, they're actually more productive. Working from a standard spreadsheet, the type of reporting we're doing now would not be feasible. With Airtable, getting the answer is almost as easy as asking the question, and with the mobile app, I can ask the question wherever I am in the building--or outside of it.

Cons: Airtable has a great feature set as a relational database, particularly for the price and ease of use, but there are some limitations--not enough to cost a star in any one category though. The nine bases we've built so far were all things that we migrated from a spreadsheet system. From that perspective, Airtable is missing the ability to use conditional formatting and it's a little lean on available functions in the formula field. So far I've managed to find workarounds for almost everything, but they're not always the most elegant. Despite these limitations, we recently upgraded to an annual paid plan after six months on the free plan.

Overall: Airtable saves us time, but it also saves us money. We're able to better manage resources when we can see how everything connects. That's what Airtable is great at. We had the data, but we were missing the lenses to put it in perspective. Having a column of dates in a spreadsheet is useful; being able to see those entries distributed on a calendar with a single click is a game-changer.

Vetted 4-5 online database apps before I found AirTable. It blew me away! Simple yet feature-rich!

Pros: Ease of use. I was up and running in less than an hour. Staff that view the data in Airtable are duly impressed that I can easily create custom views for various groups to see only what they need. Linking tables quite simple and so useful! Sorting and filtering are amazing and could teach Excel a thing or two.

Rich Feature Set. I prefer databases to spreadsheets, and tend to complicate things. Airtable offers the best of both worlds.

Mobile app. I sat in a meeting and was asked a question about the data. I pulled out my smartphone and was able to answer questions immediately. (Translation: Airtable made me look good!)

Cons: Reporting: I would like to be able to add headers and footers to tables before printing, but truthfully, we don't do a lot of formal reports just printouts to check of against physical documents then toss them.

The reporting included is ease to use.

Overall: Easily managed and sharable database. Great visual tool.

Airtable was exactly what we were looking for to manage both our membership and sponsor lists!

Pros: Airtable flattens the learning curve of a relational database by leveraging the familiar 'Excel-type' spreadsheet interface. Having fields that allow you to link file attachments to each record is a real plus!

Cons: If I had to change anything, I'd like more granular controls for users and the ability to approve/decline record changes made by others. This can be mitigated by utilizing the auto-generated APIs, though.

Pros: It starts off free and you get a lot for that! I have a small but quite complicated business so being able to set up tables that are straightforward, easy to use and that deliver 90% of what I need is terrific. The views are well thought out, setting up formulas is easy and in the main it has been well thought out.

Although I work mostly on my own, I can see how the team functionality would be really useful if I needed it.

Cons: This software feels very much as though it is a victim of its own success. There are several key features, like linking bases, offline access and dynamic sorting that really need attention but with the addition of its integration with Zapier you can probably get it to do an awful lot of what you do.

Overall: I was able to organise and manage multiple aspects of my business without having to resort to clunky yet restrictive software solutions or multiple spreadsheets. The tables work well.

Pros: It's so user friendly. It's easy to set up multiple tables then link them together to combine all the data you need.

Cons: I wish there was a way to create a form that could be used to easily fill out a record. The fields in the form would be used to populate the various tables.

Overall: I'm able to quickly search to get the information that I need. Much easier than setting up a spreadsheet with pivot tables.

Comments: I tell everyone I know who has to manage data or information sets about Airtable and after looking for themselves, most of them opt to add it in to their set of tools!

Pros: Airtable offers unique features, is continually developing new tools and making improvements, and very affordable.

Cons: Some of the features I would like are still in development, but are in Beta testing right now. It is a great tool, but depending on what you need, may not be a complete system.

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

Pros: Ease of access and use. Real-time updating. Great way for a large team to collaborate on a project and have instant access to the same information. We use it for tracking case details and even budgeting items.

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. Have to pay careful attention to working in the program when others are working as well.

Overall: Great way to collaborate with a big team on projects. Can track details, deadlines and even budget items. Very versatile and worth the money!

Pros: The UI, the templates, the field types. This product has filled a void in my day-to-day work. Especially as the co-founder for an early stage startup, my partner and I often need to spin up documents that do more than what a note-taking software can do. I also really love the mobile experience. You'd think something so powerful wouldn't be easily accessible from a smartphone, but the Airtable team has figured it out!

Cons: There isn't a whole lot to dislike about the product. If I had to find something to complain about, it would be to have even more templates, but to be honest, they've thought about a lot of use cases and it really makes it easy to use their product.

Makes staying organize a breeze!

Pros: The ease of use of this software and overall functionality is the best that I've seen. It's Excel with more power and more user-friendly, which gives me more time to accomplish the actual work that I need to accomplish.

Cons: This isn't a huge con, but being able to export as PDF and to export in various views that would show images would also be useful.

Overall: Having all the features of an excel sheet combined with calendar and gallery views, links, and images, are all beneficial attributes of Airtable.

Pros: Flexibility. Airtable is essentially a database that can be tailored and modified any way you like. In past roles I've used JIRA, Trello, Asana for agile project management, but there's invariably some workflow restriction of each of these apps. Airtable is most flexible project management tool I've ever used.

Cons: iOS app is a bit laggy. Also wish that boolean fields could be swiped on the main view, instead of having to open each record. Also, there's no python library for interacting with the API.

Streamlined and flexible.

Comments: Airtable is an awesome product that our business didn't know we needed, until we tried it. We use it to catalog a lot of different information, from software company assets to hiring projects. The ability to link information and cross connect data points is invaluable. Using spreadsheets or project management programs falls short when you're dealing with important data. We've enjoyed their continuous improvement and creative expansion of data entry possibilities (from URLs to images, etc.)

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

Overall: Airable can be hard to wrap your head around at first. Is it spreadsheet software? Project management software? A visual relational database tool? An Evernote or Trello replacement?

Yes. To all of that. Sort of.

Visually, Airtable resembles spreadsheet software, with columns and rows of sortable data. But you can't crunch numbers or produce quarterly earnings statements with Airtable. Airtable is a database management tool, so you can use it to manage anything you would put in a database. But because of the visually-oriented approach Airtable takes, that means go way beyond organizing contacts or saving recipes.

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. It's elegantly designed, ruggedly engineered and fun to use.

Comments: Airtable was a useful piece of free cloud-based software for our start-up in our early days, and we used it as a very basic CRM. As our needs matured, especially regarding management of customers, it made a significant amount of sense for us to switch to Salesforce for it's robust, platform based system.

Pros: I loved how simple it was to set up, and that it was cloud based.

Cons: I would really have liked to be able to share record cards between different bases, and reference specific cards easily in different tables within the same base. So, for example, if I wanted to create a separate table to track meetings between different members of our team and our contacts, I would have liked a way to enter their contact cards into a record without needing to go to the trouble of creating a field in each table.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's like google sheets on steroids, absolutely give it a shot.

Comments: Airtable has saved my bacon more than once. So many times, I looked at a spreadsheet and wondered "is this the best way to organize this information? what if I want other people to only choose from three options to avoid misspellings and mistakes?" Never again! Airtable is the "spreadsheet" I never knew I wanted until I found it. The layout is pleasing, the functions are simple yet complex, and I haven't run out of space yet! Highly recommended to anyone who wants to do more with their spreadsheets without the hassle of googling excel functions every other minute.

Cons: No Print or View Mode that allows formatting of entries on a PDF or web interface
No granular permissions control
Can't write math formulas in cells directly, need to have multiple columns and then sum/multiply them.

Overall: Like many new internet SaaS apps, Airtable is intensely focused on delivering a clean and focused user experience. This means that features take a while to get rolled out and it is not even on par with google sheets or other spreadsheets like smartsheets. However, it is a database and it does some pretty cool things. It's also free for most users who don't need a lot of storage space on the system and have databases with fewer than 1200 records each.

For us, it's great for staying organized and has pushed us to keep better track of events and the costs associated with each of them. The form functionality is great for getting staff input in the field.

We look forward to seeing what they will add next!

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't be shy about getting on the forums and asking for help. Developers are also interested in helping you with your unique use case/will point to others who have done the same.

Comments: Airtable is a first of a kind database management tool that is simple enough for anyone to pick up and start using right away and yet powerful enough to provide useful solutions to small businesses.

The user interface alone is reason enough to try out Airtable. Playing around with the options and creating custom apps for myself has been a breez. Navigation is intuitive and consistent.

Everything about this tool is extremely polished ¿especially for a newer application! Clearly, the developers did not rush this product to the market and they care a great deal about the end user experiance!

Airtable is off to a great start, but I t will be very interesting to see how well they are accepted by everyone still struggling their way through spread sheets...

*Also their customer service is first rate. I've asked a few questions (via their great in app messaging service) and every time I recieved a reply from a representative within minutes!
