Pros

  • very intuitive and simple to use
  • bug-free
  • we are able to formulate it for our needs instead of fitting into someone else's idea of what we need
  • usable across multiple platforms and devices--desktops, laptops, iphones.
  • editing in real time, and several viewers viewing screens from remote locations

Cons

  • I'd really like to be able to link records or a view between bases within my workspace.
  • The form designer is not as featured as we're used to with Google Forms.
  • I'm using the Airtable Importer by Railsware to bring Airtable data into Google Sheets. Import from Google sheets would be a great feature.

  • Need to improve in the way it shows project development in time: Gantt chart, schedules, etc.

It's not perfect but it is really easy to use and I think most slightly technical people will pick it up quite quickly.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Alternatives Considered

Excel and Microsoft 365 are good for what they do but don't fill the database niche the way that Airtable does. LiveImpact looks amazing but is currently out of our price range and better suited to medium-large nonprofits. Airtable is the perfect place to start our small org and I keep finding new capabilities in it to help us manage our infrastructure as we grow.

Better features for project development follow up than Asana and Wrike (previous choices)

Return on Investment

  • Airtable has definitely had a positive impact on our organization. It's helped up organize and manage our client information, keeping it current, accurate, and accessible to everyone on our team, no matter where they are. We are able to be more efficient and client-responsive because of this.
  • It's automated some of the tasks we were performing manually - capturing data that our systems like MailChimp and SurveyMonkey house - and importing it directly into our database through the use of Zapier, thus saving us time and potential data input error.
  • My only "negative impact" comment I'll put out there is that it is just really fun to use - and because of that I've personally "lost" a lot of time spent exploring and being inspired by so many new ways to house other business data!
  • All-in-all, it is keeping us in front of our data, freeing up time and resources, and giving us a better view into running our nonprofit more efficiently and effectively.
