Airtable

Airtable is a genius solution for the restrictions of spreadsheets when the data needs to be accessed across several layers and presented in a 2D report. Airtable does this naturally without the need to export and modify the data into a database. It is a solution for any team that can benefit from multi-dimensional access to various data.

Forecast

Forecast is well suited for tracking schedules, especially if it is only being controlled by a single department. When it comes to using Forecast in a larger ecosystem with more "cooks in the kitchen" it would be helpful to have the software more easily integrated with other software.

Pros

Airtable

  • Flexibility: there are many view features and different ways you can use the product
  • Integrations: there are so many apps you can integrate it; from Slack to Shipstation
  • Beautiful: it just looks nice to use. Sometimes project management apps are ugly, this isn't

Cons

Airtable

  • I would like to be able to sort items into groups without having to sort by specific columns. Just manually sort by click and drag.
  • I'd like to see all of the documents of each base stored collectively somewhere and cataloged in a document library.
  • I would like to see this base exportable as a Gant chart.

Forecast

  • Not as intuitive as its companion software, Harvest. This software takes longer to learn when on-boarding new staff. It is also difficult to view time notes without needing to physically open them up. This could be improved by expanding the "on hover" functionality. Personally, having spent as little time in workflow software is really important, as it gives me more time to code.
  • Because we use this software to plan schedules, items often fall through the cracks. I would like to see some more sophisticated syncing with not only Harvest but also with Asana.
  • Lack of integration with Asana. It would be nice to pull data from forecast and display it in Asana. This would be helpful for understanding how much time I have to spend on a project rather than bounce back and forth between web apps.

Airtable has a plethora of features that suit our needs, although there are little things that could be improved to make it perfect. I believe Airtable is actively working to improve their product so I have every confidence that Airtable is the perfect choice for our purposes.

I am impressed by the support provided by the Airtable team. For each query or any issue raised by the user, there are multiple ways of contacting them. One way is email. They reply within 24 hours, or the second way is customer support. Customer support is available for users in chat or telephonic phone or both. You can opt for any communication mode.

Alternatives Considered

Airtable

I trialed around 7 products, which include 4 education products and 3 online products at least. I can't remember all of the pros and cons as it was a couple of years ago and I am now upgrading from a free plan to a paid one. Suffice to say, Airtable beat all of them hands down, for ease of use and flexibility
Shirley Hickey | TrustRadius Reviewer

Forecast

I have not used any other scheduling software other than Forecast. The company selected Forecast because it is used in conjunction with Harvest. The pair of web apps can be used to pull detailed data. This is very important to our agency, and making data-driven decisions is exceptionally important to our agency mission.

Return on Investment

Airtable

  • I would estimate it has personally saved me 2 hours a week of administration better invested in other things. These are the most valuable cost savings I have on a personal level.
  • I was able to explore, populate, configure and prepare Airtable for what I needed for free. Only when we reached the point of being ready to make full use of the system did we need to spend a penny.
  • Replacing Excel for administrative tasks with Airtable will eventually save us hundreds of lost hours a year.

Forecast

  • Allow departments to run efficiently.
  • Quickly identify whether departments need to hire.
  • Easily visualize project gaps in resources.
