Any sort of database--keeping records of all of our volunteers, recipients, organizations, etc

Highfive

Highfive makes sense for wirelessly sharing a screen to a larger TV, and still showing it to remote users that call in. But if you're trying to do something too active, especially with video, you'll see it lag terribly.

Pros

  • Great user experience and minimal learning curve. 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.
  • Easy to share views and invite contributions via forms.
  • Blocks add significant functionality that would be hard to custom build.

  • It keeps things simple with its interface, so I usually know what to click.
  • It automates a lot of the process of calling in, which can be nice.

Cons

  • It would be great to have multi-tiered selection options. So if I check a box-like, "Does this need social support?" I could then pick from a multi-select drop-down based on the choice.
  • It would be good if we could have a kanban view built off a selection from a multi-select since some projects might be part of multiple strategic initiatives.
  • It would be cool if forms could have some basic if/then functionality. As it is, we need to create different forms for different media requests that share 75% of the same data.

  • There has been some consistent static on all calls when I use my laptop sound. This is obviously very annoying.
  • This is a difficult tool to use with customers. Most have some type of firewall and don't want to download software. The browser feature comes in handy in that way though. I wish it was easier to simply host a phone call if I needed to as well. A lot of clients just want a dial-in number and that information changes for every call and every few minutes in the call - so you can't share a number unless they are going to call in right that minute.

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.

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

I don't intend to replace Basecamp with Airtable, rather enhance my use of it, limit it to what it does best, which isn't ongoing tracking of data.Not wanting to build this in something like Access, which I've used previously, I did a search for services like Airtable that would help me build a relational database online and compared them. I selected Airtable as my first choice to test, and haven't gone further. It works well. So, I can't give comparison information here. I would say start here.

Skype has proven to be difficult to get multiple users on. Screenhero is great for screen sharing usage, but the group version is down sometimes. Slack has proven to be very affective for most of our communication but isn't as easy to add others to the same call or allow others to join an existing call.

  • Great progress so far and only a few weeks into this!

  • It has allowed us to save money on travel expenses for staff. We use video conferencing and still achieve that in-person feel.
