Pros: The amount of customization that is possible with an Airtable base gives you an incredible amount of control and flexibility. There isn't anything you can't track and analyze with Airtable.

Cons: The pricing jump between features is my least favorite part of airtable. The additional features are mostly for applying aesthetic choices to your bases but jump up to twice the cost of the first paid package.

Overall: Keep track information in a more visual, interesting way

Pros: It essentially is a mix of a database with Excel/Numbers/Google Sheets. It's very powerful and gives you tremendous options for what you can do and how you are going to do it, and even has several templates to use.

Cons: In my opinion, it has a very generous free plan, but locking the ability to make charts out of your data in the plan (you need the "Blocks" feature) seems a little strange.

Pros: Airtables allows for very straightforward editing of tabular data, including photo upload. Card-based item display is a great feature.

Cons: I do not want to have to download the app to use it on my mobile device. A modified web interface should be possible and is for other similar products.

Pros: As an event coordinator, I manage 40-50 speakers for every conference we host. After feeling like excel was not the most sufficient way to track speaker information and to-do's, I began searching online for another method. That's when I found Airtable. Airtable has dozens of workspace templates already created which reduces time spent on starting from scratch, which you can also do. There are seemingly endless ways to customize your table. Within the table, there are many tabs which link to the main tab. It's also dynamic so you can invite colleagues to view or modify the table as well. I love that items can be color coded. There are different membership levels, but the free version is robust enough at this time that we can manage all that we need to. It's very similar to excel, but better as we are not using formulas. Airtable is so customizable!

Cons: What I like least about Airtable is that you cannot "warp text" like you can in excel. This is a very small complaint.

Finally a smart Excel!

Pros: Very easy to learn, very handy features such as adding attachments to a row, history of updates & conversations recorded for each row, smart filters and views. We use it for all sorts of applications, from project management to simple lists

Cons: The levels of restriction can maybe be improved. It isn't very easy to create a ticketing system for instance, we have to dig through the templates and spend some time in customisation

Overall: It replaces Excel and Google Sheets for smart lists, and goes beyond for project management

Pros: I wanted to get away from the spreadsheets and get the functionality of a database without the hassle of microsoft. Airtable lets me organize just about ANYTHING in the most logical and simple of ways. I can't say enough about how much I love this platform and how much time it's helped me save. You can do anything from the most basic of project planning and organization to building your own custom CRM in under an hour.

Cons: I don't have any complaints. It's legitimately the best platform I've used for daily marketing and analysis tasks ever.

Overall: The power of a database solution without the hassle of spreadsheets. It's so easy to organize anything from the smallest of tasks to the largest with Airtable

Pros: I use Excel spreadsheet everyday for work and for my personal life. Since I changed to Airtable, I never looked back. I love how my data is better presented. I can attach photos and even files in the table. The best thing is the 'View' function. For the same set of data, I can create different views for different needs. It's also great for team collabrating. I can also connect with Zapier to automate my workflow.

Cons: I really don't have much negative things to say about Airtable. It pretty much fills all my needs. It's a great product with constant improvement.

Overall: It makes my spreadsheet looking fantastic and add on lots of modern features: collaboration, automation etc.

Pros: Beautiful UI and very intuitive. The Grouping, Sorting, Filtering options are extremely easy to use and once you experiment, become handier and handier. Also, being able to save different views and share links to those views are extremely useful.

Cons: In Airtable, you create "bases". The Tables/Records within a Base interact pretty well, but there currently isn't a function that allows deep-linking or references between other bases. Essentially, this makes it unusable for medium-sized teams or anyone that works with different departments. The free version is good but only a few of the features of the upgrade are important, so it's not worth the high monthly/yearly price.

Overall: I was able to enter data for 50+ clients, which gives me a global view that isn't available in Salesforce.

Such a smart, fresh way to manage projects of all kinds and size.

Pros: I love how the Airtable team went a long way in making a gorgeous, useful, and very powerful software into something any person can use with success. The UI is gorgeous and well thought, and if you couple this with the power of a real database behind the scenes, you get an absolutely fantastic product.

Cons: It might be intimidating for first-time users that don't have any experience with databases, but this feeling soon goes away when you start using Airtable.

It's user-friendly, aesthetic, and an excellent price, great experience.

Pros: - The ability to add images, PDFs, and all kinds of files inside a cell.
- The UI looks very slick.
- Every collaborator can create their own view of the database and work with it, without affecting the main view.
- We maintain our content calendar and Shopify inventory with it.
- The dropdown, multiselect fields are very intuitive.
- We also find colour coding of predetermined values very handy.
- We rock with the FREE plan!

Cons: It would have been nice to resize the height of the rows to quickly size up the amount of content in it.

Overall: Allows us to create marketing schedules, calendar and reports for our dispersed staff.

Pros: I love how AirTable is so easy to use! I used to program my tools on Excel or Sharepoint, and even on SQL. While these tools have a lot of benefit and has a place in the process improvement world, AirTable is just a great tool for quick implementation. You can use and break it anytime, and it's easy to reshape and recreate! Plus the free use is already a good use for a small company!

Cons: It doesn't have the flexibility of having recurring events. Like SQL, I need to think outside the box to do more complex operations.

Overall: Flexibility and ease of use, no need for programming skills, just logic

Pros: I like the ease of use and the many possibilities that you can use Airtable for. You can use this for personal or business, and there are many prebuilt templates that you can get started with, so that's really helpful! You can collaborate with other team members on projects or export a sheet for someone too.

Also, Ashton Kutcher is an investor, so it has to be good! :)

Cons: The bigger con... is this... When you invite someone to Airtable (and they give you a credit which you can apply to your account) even if you are on a free plan, and you invite someone and then invite them to share a sheet you are working on (even assuming they have set up an account of their own - even free) you get charged, monthly, per user you invite to collaborate. It's not very clear up front that you will be billed. I had invited someone to use Airtable, and invited them to collaborate on one base (one project/sheet) and gave them access to edit... they invited 2 more people from their team to collaborate on the same base, guess who got billed for that? I did!

Airtable should work that part out, if you only give someone read-only access you don't get billed, assuming you are on a free account, but you should be notified that will happen. Other than the billing part when inviting someone to use Airtable and inviting someone to collaborate on a base, I have no other complaints ... and I do use this for my business, it's been extremely helpful!

Pros: I was introduce to airtable by a friend and can't believe i have been living without it for all these years. So many ways to format data and filter it.

Pros: Airtable is very easy to use and setting up multiple projects with stakeholders was simple. What I like most about Airtable is how projects are set as workspaces and can create multiple tables for files, tasks, budgets, and more.

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

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

Pros: I really like how different tables can be linked together. The new blocks functionality that was added in March of 2018 adds new levels of complexity to the system. Overall this provides all of the necessary project management functions that my team needs, and will allow us to scale up as we grow.

Cons: The inability to connect bases is the only real downside that I have experienced so far. There is also a considerable amount of planning and frontend setup that needs to happen to get this working how you need it to. Once you do, it's a breeze.

Overall: Robust project management for in house marketing and advertising.

Pros: Overall, I love the look and feel of Airtable. I love that it has the strength of working in Excel but also provides additional solutions for collaborating as well as presenting data. I really enjoy the ease of including images in the rows, especially since this would not be possible in Excel. I also think it's easier to navigate and command for someone who is not familiar to all the tools of Excel. It's definitely a superior solution compared to Google Sheets.

Cons: So far, I dislike that users cannot customize access to different Airtable tables. I'm also anticipating when they will realize additional formula functions to expand how we compile and present our data.

Pros: What really made me want to use Airtable was its calendar view that I can see when scheduling out blog posts. As the content writer at my company, sometimes schedules can get changed and Airtable's views make it easy for me to re-arrange when certain posts will be scheduled. I can also add as many details and color-coordinating as I want to further classify and organize my stuff.

Cons: The customer service isn't very quick at responding - I tried calling before and got voicemail each time, and emails take a few days to respond. Also some of their functions are sometimes a bit confusing to understand and when I can't easily contact someone to figure it out, it makes it difficult to further understand functionalities that I probably could be using but am not.

Pros: I love that I can add attachments and type content, it's very customizable and easy on the eyes as the color coding makes it super easy to look at.

Cons: I like the attachment feature. I use this software to track my applicants for recruiting, so being able to attach resumes and cover letters, etc is super helpful. It would be nice if, for those that send their resume in the content of their email, I can copy and paste that in there as well for a column that is for attachments only. There likely is, I just haven't figured out the function.

Overall: I love it. It is now the only place I use to track job applicants. It's a great solution so that you don't have to look in a million different places for those smaller businesses that don't use CRM for their applicant tracking.

Also, I can add/edit event data in any view, and have it populate to other views. This helps conceptualize program content and see any gaps or conflicts.

Cons: I would love to be able to group my bases inside a workspace by topic. Also I would like that the program worked a little faster, I have a feeling it never hurries anywhere.

Pros: Airtable is great for creating a simple and flexible CRM that provides easy data entry and excellent automatic functions. Airtable has an overview that allows us to quickly collect data from people for any purpose. In addition, it has useful manuals and useful examples of Airtable users. There is a small learning curve to get the most out of it. For us, Airtable is well suited for management, event tracking and asset management. I can store all my data in one place no matter who I work with.

Cons: Very useful software that does not create problems with our workflow. All tools work well. With this software you will have a lot of wonderful work. You will see how fast.

Pros: This software comes with user-friendly templates and is very easy to customize. We needed an "Issue Tracker" that kept technical, scheduling, and student issues all in one place. We used the "Bugs" template and customized it for our school. It is incredibly easy to use, and it is easily incorporated into SharePoint (our primary home for school-related documents).

Cons: There really isn't anything I didn't like about this software. I wish we had known about it sooner. As we work to move all of our documentation into SharePoint, it was the perfect product to meet our needs.

Overall: Ease of use, easy to customize, integrates well with SharePoint, templates were well designed and intuitive.

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

Cons: * pricing model * learning curve * communication management * lack of certain standard features there are a lot of glaring pain points that my team encounters on a weekly basis which makes airtable, not necessarily the perfect solution but rather the best we've found so far. first off, airtable is too expensive for my company based specifically on their pricing model. to note, airtable charges per user per workspace. each member of my team manages specific projects related to a different area of the business. for ease of organization, we have a separate airtable workspace built to accomodate each employee. for example, we have a workspace for finance projects and a workspace for customer support projects. from a visual project management standpoint, this makes the most sense. sometimes our finance manager will need to engage and comment on a project base going on in the customer support workspace and vice versa. this engagement occurs daily. if you're a single user, incredibly small team or your company is client-based (where these costs would go into your billing), airtable's pricing model may not be much of a hinderance. there is a high learning curve when you get started. this is about a week of tutorials and deep-diving into the app. a lot of this time was spent modifying personal workflows to best utilize airtable. after that week of hair-pulling and a lot of cursing at our computer screens everything immediately became easier. one strong flaw in airtable is its team communication solutions. you have the ability to run comment strings on individual data rows, but an overall tab dedicated to general discussion would be immensely helpful to streamline discussion and reduce the amount of hunting/pecking for information. for a project management solution, airtable is fairly weak at offering seemingly standard task management features like scheduled notifications and workback timelines. after enough online digging, you can sometimes stumble upon a "good enough" solution. on this subject, archiving is not at all available, which is one of the more "seriously?" missing features.

Pros: Airtable allows you to create databases for all occasions. With it, you can easily structure the list of business contacts, your own ideas, a selection of your favorite films, a personal electronic library and much more. For the convenience and structuring of information, you can create, for example, several tables and link them. Another important and useful function of Airtable is the ability to share your databases with friends. Thanks to this chip, you can run a family budget, advise each other which films to watch, or plan global events together. Separately I want to say about the search system records. It becomes a strategically important function when the number of lines in the table exceeds at least a hundred. Find the information you need for a certain word or even a part of it or sort the records by some criterion, for example, according to the genre of the movie. First of all, Airtable is an organizer for me. It saves me time and keeps my data. All the information on projects, stakeholders, finance, curriculum and so on in one place!

Cons: To use Airtable is both easy and difficult. On the one hand, because of a large number of options available, it is difficult to understand at first, on the other hand, the interface is so intuitive that many functions are immediately understandable. In addition, if you still could not figure out something yourself, then video lessons and animated tips are at your service.

Airtable's spreadsheets are BEAUTIFUL and wildly robust for limitless project planning.

Pros: I'm currently planning my entire wedding on Airtable and I'm LOVING it. It's incredibly easy to customize all the columns, views, and tabs within each workspace, which is so useful as my consideration criteria for different venues change daily. You can also cross-populate between different tabs, while color-coordinating it all. Different team members can also collaborate and get alerts for deadlines, which is crucial for keeping everyone on the same timeline.

Cons: I definitely recommend watching the tutorial videos, otherwise there could be a bit of a learning curve. I'm still exploring all the features and working on being able to use it to its full potential.

Pros: Airtable was able to make databases a user friendly tool so that anyone can use them to organise as well as display and share any type of information. I use Airtable both in my personal life (organising product I buy or want to buy, travel, etc.) as well as in my professional activities for project management, CRM, or product listing. I have been particularly impressed by their gallery of use cases that transformed an initially intimidating product into a 1-click-ready solution for many needs. The evolution of the product with the introduction of new features such as their so called "blocks" to create graphical dashboard or other calendar views show that they are going well beyond the ambition of being a "beautiful database interface", and that is all to our benefit as users!

Cons: As of now, I have only discovered a fraction of the possibilities that Airtable offers and I did not find any cons to the product.

We assume that with this program we have everything we need for productive work. I like that I can store very detailed records with complex formulas in one table, with a simple to do list. The free version of the program is simply stunning and loaded with features. Many people, perhaps, never need an update. Even for updating prices for all are very small and convenient. I would recommend starting with a free level and configuring a few free templates to get an idea of ¿¿the features before moving on to your own data. I think this is a simple product for adaptation, and if you understand the various social networking platforms for business, then this program is perfectly suited.

Cons: I would like the program to have a faster speed. It will be better to make our tracking faster. Typically, the software is useful and a great helper. I personally would wish that their layout, font and appearance could be a little more customizable.

Pros: Airtable is such a useful, efficient, convenient collaboration tool! I'm loving the provided base templates - there's probably one for any use you might need. I particularly appreciate the Digital Content Calendar base template which is making blog and social media content planning so much more enjoyable than when I was using a basic spreadsheet. The biggest advantage to Airtable has to be the ease with which you can link related concepts/lists/entries together to view your data in different ways.

Overall: saves time. incredibly easy to use. the visuals are great and the ability to apply different views to your data is awesome! Airtable really gets everything organized, and the way you can share across team members and collaborate is much appreciated.

Great, easy to use database.

Pros: Airtable makes creating a database extremely easy to do. It's flexible and very easy to set up. The free version is very robust.

Cons: Really, the only downside is that the free version has a limit on how many records you can have in a database.

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

Pros: I like that it's so intuitive. If you can use a spreadsheet software, like MS Excel, then you can use Airtable. It's very user friendly and their support documentation is stellar. The fact that you can keep track of so much information and still have an user-friendly interface is incredible!

Switching between spreadsheet and calendar views has been very helpful for me to keep track of client follow-ups. I also have used an integration with IFTTT to have my client follow-ups automatically get added to my Google Calendar!

Airtable has allowed me to digitize all of my client records and keep track of all of their ever-changing information with ease. It's been a true time-saver and I'm working to get everyone on my team using it!

Cons: The only con I have encountered is that it's entirely web-based. If the internet goes down, I can't access my database on my computer. However, their mobile app is good, so I can still get at my information that way.

Overall: I've been able to easily organize information about clients and track follow-ups. It's like a combination between a spreadsheet, a project management software, a database and a calendar, but it's EASY to use so it's not intimidating or confusing.

Pros: I love the interface of this design. It's very clean, personalizable, and easy to use. This program works great for small teams whether you need to create deadlines, keep track of workflow, and designate projects to different team members.

Comments: I would absolutely recommend this for many projects, it is fun and easy to set up and use. Perhaps keep the budget analysis for a typical spreadsheet or be prepared to deep dive into the documentation and creative solutions if you want to use Airtable for finances.

Pros: This database allows you to visualize, organize and track the progress of various projects in your personal and professional life. It is fully collaborative, so optimized for group or individual projects, complete with permissions. Rather than staring at rows of spreadsheet numbers and charcters, you can grasp information within seconds given the graphically oriented database. There are numerous templates, designs and case studies to help you compile your information in the best way possible. The customer support is excellent and there are tons of tutorials on their Medium blog and on YouTube to help you get the most out of this product. It is fully customizeable for the info and layout you wish to maintain. The pricing is reasonable and the standard free version has great functionality.

Cons: Although it is an awesome database, it is NOT a replacement for Excel for several functions. It resembles a spreadsheet, but you dont have full control over each cell, to format it as you wish. The formulas seem limited or more complicated in comparison to a traditional spreadsheet. You can' truly link databases or info between or within tables freely. Manipulating numbers becomes a bit awkward in some circumstances. However, these limitations may possibly improve with time and future upgrades. The more you understand how the software works, you may discover different ways to accomplish your functions on this new platform.

Pros: Airtable makes it SO easy to create beautiful spreadsheets and database that are organised intelligently! Google Sheets has nothing on Airtable if you have any more complicated organisational needs. The ability to group "bases" by various criteria, to display in different views (Kanban view in particular), etc. make this SO powerful and useful for businesses trying to make their data more useful. We use it for product roadmaps, feature inventories, and conducting user research. It makes it so easy to extract the essential information we love it!

Cons: The paid plans are a little expensive for agencies, who may want to invite collaborators to only one or two bases. If you're on a paid plan every user is billed monthly if you want them to have edit capabilities, which means you could end up spending a lot of time managing user access so you aren't paying for a user for a year who only needs edit-access for a few weeks or so. I'd love to see a "collaborator" user type that allows someone access to 1 or 2 bases for a limited amount of time (e.g. auto-expire access after 1 month). Maybe you could pay a one-time fee each time you add this type of user, so Airtable gets paid but you don't have to worry about being billed indefinitely.

Overall: It makes it easier to organise information in ways that make sense to us and our clients.

Pros: Airtable is super intuitive and has tons of great features. We were able to fully customize it based on our operations. Surprisingly, we get everything that we need from it using the paid plan.

Cons: Some minor glitches - all aspects of a table don't copy and paste when moved. Overall, updates seem to happen frequently.

Pros: Plenty of templated to choose from, a little confusing at first to customize, but quickly got the hang of it.

Cons: Had some bugs with Zapier, could never get the social posting to work accurately. Building a custom airtable was difficult, I just wound up customizing the templates.

Overall: Set up a lead follow up system and sales process to help move qualified leads into sales calls.

Pros: I LOVE the mobile app, the desktop app, the ease of use and simple interface. Airtable has changed the way I organize not only my data, but also my life! I use it for a cleaning tracker, price and expense tracker at home, and an asset tracker at work.

Cons: I wish there was a way to somehow integrate a repeating function for tasks. I realize this is mostly a database and not a project management tool, but it would definitely close the loop for me and really rid me of any reason to use anything else for organization.

Pros: My favorite thing about Airtable is how flexible and yet still usable it is. I can keep very detailed records with complex formulas in one table, with a simple to-do list in another. The views and filters are also fantastic. I can have several ways of viewing one table, making it easy for me to see my data in the way that makes the most sense. For example, I can view project tasks in a kanban format but then click to a calendar view to see when things are due. Airtable also connects to Zapier, which enables me to send automated emails like client receipts.

Cons: The only drawback is that it's not built for long form text. I keep track of projects and clients on it, but for client notes I use Milanote. You can use it for long chunks of text, but that's not what it's really geared toward.

Overall: I honestly love Airtable. I use it to organize projects and my work with clients. It's just so utterly easy to use, I can't imagine there being a better product. I'm someone who always found Excel confusing, so the fact that I'm able to create formulas so easily has been great. I finally upgraded my plan after a couple of years, not because I had to, but because I was interested in some of the pro features, like the better colors and extra calendar capabilities. The phone app is also really great!

Pros: Turbo charges a traditional spreadsheet
Great integrations (chances are it "talks" with the platforms you already use)
Very versatile and can be used in a variety of different ways
Lots of different "views" to visualize your data

Cons: Steep learning curve to get things working properly
Some import issues from Trello
Spreadsheets can get a bit unwieldy
The "records" feature takes some getting used to

Overall: It's a really powerful take on spreadsheets, similar to SmartSheets or Google Sheets with a bunch of plugins. It does take time to set up, but we can see it being beneficial at medium scale organizations.

Pros: * Very easy to use.
* Has many templates.
* Really beautiful, its design is remarkable.
* Many, many features.

Cons: * There are cheaper alternatives. If you use spreadsheets, you may wonder if it is worth it pay for that.
* Remarkably resource-intensive in the client side.

Overall: While I use another product most of the time (and I'm even moving from that to an offline software) I have to admit Airtable is a masterpiece. In the still immature world of the "spreadsheet databases" its quality and elegance gives it the market share it has. Since I use these tools mostly for my personal needs, I'm discovering that tradicional desktop softwares have many advantages. Yet, for larger, multi-user scenarios, Airtable is a mandatory candidate.

Pros: 1) Free version is just too awesome and loaded with features. Many people might never need to upgrade . Even for upgradation , the pricing is very little and comfortable for anyone.
2) Ease of use is awesome though initially it may take a while to get a hang the complete software
3) They have apps everywhere from desktop to android and iPhone . All for free !
4) They have integrated almost every feature imaginable and unimaginable like CSV export, team collaboration , segregation and sub segregation of data , etc

Cons: It's very difficult to find cons with airtable. However, as I use it more and more, perhaps I will find a glitch I can point out. As of now , it seems chances of that happening are very dim :) .

Pros: The visual layout and how one could use it in a linear fashion. I like that you can organize files, tasks, and even movies in a linear fashion. There are many templates to use and the project can be organized in a comprehensive way and it looks beautiful too.

Cons: I did not like that you couldn't have child tasks under parent tasks. In the stacks, I wanted the ability to have one parent task and its dependent tasks as child tasks.

Pros: Works just like google sheets so it is very easy to pick up and start your project right away. Collaborative and in real time. I like that you are able to create your own custom buttons, columns, set due dates and processes. I use it to track candidates outside of my CRM to see where they are what stage their in and my next tasks.

Cons: Sometimes if open for a long period of time, it will force refresh and if you did anything recently it will lose that data.

Pros: Airtable can handle everything. The database management (with linked data) is very useful. The multiple views and types of views are extremely helpful. All the field types are always great and cover just about everything you'd want. Add in the collaboration and share-ability and you have an amazing system!

Cons: I wish there was some color options via the non-premium edition, but that's a minor thing. Nothing to really dislike!

Airtable has finally been the one thing to replace my endless ream of spreadsheets stored on google drive. It's beautiful. It's easy to use. It does everything you need it to do, and does it pleasantly. It's like taking me from a file-o-fax to the digital age.

Pros: It is so malleable that I can do almost everything with it. I used to spend every single day trying to make static spreadsheets do what I needed, and instead, I now can build full, robust databases complete with team interaction and approvals. The Airtable team takes great care to make all updates meaningful for their users and are great at communicating updates as they come out.

Cons: If you don't have a mind for if-then-or-that or boolean logic, it can be a little difficult to work up to using this product to its full potential. This can make it difficult to onboard new team member or get buy-in on using it across the entire organization.

Overall: I recommend this product to everyone for both professional and personal use. Most large, out-of-the-box systems built to help with project management are too rigid to be used effectively with small or unique teams structures. This eliminates that problem and let's you build exactly what you need from the ground up.

Pros: Loading your current data is as easy as cut and paste. The online help is superb, includes "moving screens" for better understanding and they provide good examples. The support team is excellent. They answer questions quickly and their communication skills are great. It's easy to figure out how to create different views and forms. The product is very affordable. I'm still on the free trial and the level of support I have received has greatly impressed me. I also recommend attending their webinars. I learned a lot from it.

Cons: I'd like to see some data validation: if a field is defined as phone, it shouldn't allow characters, etc. There should also be some cross validation, for example: this date can't be before this other date. Report generation is basically non existent. You mostly have to export your data into Excel and go from there. I have to generate mailing labels and I expect that won't be fun.
