Airtable

Many business processes can be improved with a collaborative relational database, but few know how to create and use one. It wasn't until I became aware of Airtable that we found a solution that allows us to implement the best features of a collaborative RDBMS with our staff who don't have any training. I had previously used Zoho Creator and found that it was difficult to onboard new users because of a steeper learning curve. The combination of a minimal learning curve and features make Airtable a win. I've already recommended it to colleagues at other universities who've started using it.

Pros

  • Links between different tables. This is one of the best features if you're managing things that are linked to other things, which nearly everything is!
  • You can add fields, change fields, remove fields, whenever you want. It's an adaptable, dynamic database. You don't get stuck with a structure that doesn't work for you-you just change it.
  • You can view records in different views e.g. as a grid, form, calendar. This is so handy. When I'm collecting data about a new participant in our program I open up a new record as a form and fill it out like that. At other times I need to see them all as a list or group of different criteria and I can do all of that with the click of a button.
  • You can send out forms and the data goes straight back into your Airtable workspace. So handy and makes data collection and management easy.
  • Grouping, filtering. This is so handy for viewing where tasks or participants are up to in the process.

  • Intuitive interface and ease of use and understanding.
  • Flexible to customize with good frameworks which are easy to manage.
  • All in one solution for collaboration and to help go email less where all communication, assets, conversations are possible through one platform.

Cons

  • This, perhaps, is a function I have yet to explore, but as I need to upload photos into AirTable for use in planning exhibitions it would be nice when exporting AirTable documents that these photos would be exported in the Excel document spreadsheet as well.

  • Web Content management could be more flexible with additional portlets which can be used to create websites.

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

SAIC is a gSuite campus and Airtable is a very good companion to the gSuite. The Airtable gDrive integration is quite good and Airtable solves problems that gSuite simply does not solve.
Though it does not replace them, Airtable also plays well with our Project Management toolsets.

eXo platform combines a number of features such as document management, wiki, internal social networks, messaging, calendaring as well as portal functionality. It is undoubtedly a feature-packed platform of the order of e.g. Sharepoint.

Return on Investment

  • Productivity is an easy place to start with ROI. The quickest and easiest way for us to see our ROI with Airtable is the ability to handle large processes and task very quickly and easily, and in many cases with automation. We have specifically seen this within our hiring and application process, where an applicant fills out the form on our website, and after submission, it lands in Airtable where it gets worked through the process.
  • Still on productivity, we have seen great impact on management the project plan for the launch of our founding school in Philadelphia. We have been utilizing Airtable to task plan each step of the process for launching the school from vision to building.
  • There has been a bit of negative impact due to limitations of the tool. Specifically the task planning an inability to nest task within the project. We have also had a few issues with the lack of the ability to link records between bases, which would help centralize data better.

  • eXo Platform appears to be very suitable for corporate settings for maximising and enhancing internal synergies when planned carefully.
