Airtable

Airtable is an incredibly powerful tool for basic spreadsheet tasks used in your departments, especially if those spreadsheets are being shared and used by multiple departments. It's a better designed spreadsheet, [compared to] what Excel and Google Sheets offers. [It] has multiple view options so that each team can see the data in the way that makes the most sense for their team.

An app that is not behind and pay wall and not filled with nasty ads.5. An app that makes you more productive without getting distracted with features.6. An app that has support for dark mode, which cares for your eyes.7. An app that has deeply integrated with other Google services like Gmail and Calendar.8. An app that [has been on] the market for several years, and that [is] free.This app is not for you if you want-1. An app that has [too many] features that it would take [too] much time to learn fully and adapt to its learning curve.2. An app that is behind a paywall.3. An app that has some fancy features which you may not even require.4. An app where [it is a] hassle to enter a task and mark is completed.

Pros

Airtable

  • Airtable has the best customization features out there. They allow you to customize you spreadsheets or tables in a variety of formats. They allow you to customize a variety of field types, field sizes and various colors.
  • Airtable has a great collaboration feature that makes it easy to share and grant access to tables and a variety of information.
  • Airtable has great compatibilities that allows you to directly upload spreadsheets from excel into a customizable table.
  • Airtable is easy to teach and understand quickly, and does not take time for someone who is not technically advanced to understand

Google Tasks

  • The best part, Google Tasks is FREE. No paywall, no ads. Just pure productivity. I was looking for some task-management app which is free, since it was difficult to get a paid one. I found that this was the perfect solution for me.
  • It's deeply integrated with other Google services like Gmail and Calendar. It can pick tasks with Gmail from emails, in the form of suggestions. It's up to you, completely. The tasks will appear in your calendar automatically, if it's time or date specific.
  • It's simple and hassle free to insert tasks and complete them. The app loads fast and hardly faces any crash. I encountered no such crashes.
  • It is present in multiple platforms. I would create a task in my phone, and would check it off on my laptop.
  • It's hassle free to add and check off tasks. It was very helpful for me in college.

Cons

Airtable

  • Pricing model: we don't like how we have to pay per user.
  • Calendar view: we wish the calendar view was better, or if there were different types of calendar views. Right now there is just one.
  • Complicated: some parts of the app are a little complicated.

Google Tasks

  • Google Tasks lack support. If you encounter any problem, you just have the option to provide feedback. Since the team may receive a lot of feedbacks, they simply don't answer.
  • Although it contains the essentials of a task-management app, there are still lots of features that can be implemented. Like, ability to specify time taken, setting priority in a more detailed way, and lots more.
  • The app is very slow to develop. The updates are pretty slow, and some even make the app unstable, rendering it useless until the next update. It happened to me but chances are very slim.
  • They don't have a dedicated app for Windows. I really missed that, and they still don't have one.

We will 10/10 renew the use of Airtable because it has brought great value to our team. Not only is Airtable affordable, but it's also user-friendly and helps our team be efficient. We no longer need to rely on Excel spreadsheets being passed from person to person via email. Furthermore, we aren't dealing with corrupt Excel spreadsheets and the need to salvage data when a file is accidentally altered.

Usability

Airtable

Airtable 8.7
Based on 21 answers
It's such a friendly program to use, and there's just so many resources available to people trying to learn it or build new things. Their support is great, and they make it easy to find answers to your questions. It's easy to use but difficult to master, that might be a better way to put it.

We find support easy to find, responsive and knowledgeable. In addition to a large selection of well-done help articles and webinars, there is a forum with quick support coming from Airtable staff and other users. We haven't had any issues in getting the information and support that we've needed.

Since the app is free, we can't expect to get a great support. 1. The app does not even have a dedicated forum where other members can help each other.2. The app only has a feedback option, which I rarely think visits the team.3. Even after sending many feedbacks, you can't expect a reply.4. In a nutshell, if you face any problem, you can just wait. Nothing more than that.

Training all users was an important part of the implementation, which did take considerable time and effort. At first glance without training, the content calendar can be overwhelming because of the amount of data. The features within Airtable seem to be endless but our team was able to identify the most important to be successful.

Alternatives Considered

Airtable

Airtable combines the simplicity of a spreadsheet with the possibilities that come with a database, all within one tool. We have chosen it after a short evaluation. It is incredibly easy to use after a short training, making it a great tool compared to the typical spreadsheet-based apps.

Return on Investment

Airtable

  • The ROI is simple: Airtable has created a more efficient workplace. We have fewer meetings, certainly. But any meetings we do have are much more efficient and impactful. Everyone walks in having used Airtable to prepare for the meeting (uploading needed docs, etc.), and the meeting is held using Airtable as the agenda. Airtable is updated and continues to be used after the meeting, so everyone stays on the same page.
  • Airtable also makes planning events much more streamlined. Contracts, rental agreements, rosters, etc. are uploaded. Dates are set with reminders. People know what they are responsible for planning the event and for what role they will play during the event.

Google Tasks

  • It has made me more productive. Now, I can complete twice the [amount of] tasks I used to do when I was not a user of this app.
  • I remember much more about smaller tasks lying around than before. Smaller tasks may have a larger impact, so they can't be neglected.
  • It has a great impact on my mood as well. Now, I feel 50% more happy and motivated at the end of the day, looking at my completed to-do list.
  • The app pays off in the long run. It's definitely has a very high ROI score, based upon my experience.
