Airtable

It's VERY easy to use and VERY powerful. Honestly feels like a big leap in productivity tools. Airtable just feels like magic and seems to address many of the weaknesses of other great tools all at once. I have started to use it across all of Operation Fistula's work, but also across my client's work too!

Pros

  • Airtable is easy to use. It has an intuitive interface and plenty of video/help support for what is not.
  • It makes not only organizing your data efficient, but connects that data to everyone on your team in one centralized database. I love that multiple people can be editing the same records at the same time, and Airtable captures it all in real time!
  • Easy to link data between tables. This makes a lot of information available to users with just a few keystrokes - which makes the frustration of hunting down information a thing of the past.
  • Really appreciate being able to use Zapier to connect Airtable to several of our other systems that house data - MailChimp, SurveyMonkey, Quickbooks to name a few.
  • Being able to change the data views is one of the bigger fan favorites on our team, whether it is in Grid, Gallery, or Kanban, to grouping and sorting by Field Type. There is something for everyone's needs there.

Cons

  • We are relatively new to Airtable and are still exploring its functionality. We've also just been using a free account which has some limits but paid plans have features that could be handy. So far, we're just thrilled at how it's streamlined our workflow and information management.

As I said, it's AMAZING, incredibly flexible -- totally intuitive, requiring almost no learning curve. I love that because it makes it easy to share with clients, without them having to learn how to use it.

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

Airtable is much more user-friendly and easy to navigate and update than Confluence. We still use Confluence as a wiki, but Airtable is used for all our day to day management.

Return on Investment

  • If not for Airtable I would have had to pursue a CRM system and an asset management system, plus some sort of task management system for multiple employees, and manage my budget in Excel which is a pain when it gets complex. Airtable lets me put all this in one system, light weight, extremely powerful, and extremely efficient. Exactly what we needed. I am so happy this system exists.
  • Airtable is free and you can get quite a bit in there and use it for a while before deciding to go to the paid version. Therefore the proof of concept was quite easy to bring it into our organization. We've been using it for a few months and it's made everyone's lives easier, so moving now to the paid version is a no-brainer. I didn't have to ask everyone to take a big leap of faith in the beginning and there was no big up front resource investment either, at least relative to setting up any other software or even complex Excel workbooks.
  • Several people in our organization have commented that this system has made their lives far easier, because we can now keep track of our tasks and our events. Our key people are both saner and more efficient.
  • The paid version of Airtable is DIRT CHEAP in comparison to the systems it stands in for. I cannot emphasize this enough.
