  • If you need transparency around your workloads the product is great as it is easy to use and visually tells a story.
  • It is ideal for SCRUM management as it plays into the ideas of Sprint

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.

  • Great for supporting SCRUM as part of Agile deliveries. We use the ToDo, Doing and Done and build GANNT charts to facilitate resource planning.
  • We use it at a department level to manage workloads and help staff know what work is waiting for them and the relative priority.
  • We have deployed it across the organisation and also work with suppliers and offshore development teams to coordinate activities.

Cons

  • If I had my dream world, I would be able to link data in one base to data in another base - inter-relational database bases.
  • I haven't been able to try out blocks yet, but I can quickly see there are only a couple that would apply to what I'm doing. It would be nice to be able to customize a plus with a select handful of pro items without the pro price. Non-profits aren't big spenders, so unless I can justify use of the majority of the pro features, I will end up not having the few I would like due to overall cost.
  • I would love to be able to group my bases inside a workspace by topic.
  • I haven't yet figured out how to connect Airtable with other things we use. An "easier" tutorial on this topic would be extremely nice. Kind of a guide for non-technical dummies. Don't assume that a person who knows enough to build an inter-relational database also understands the interactive technologies and apps of the day.
  • T-minus tasks. Setting a deadline for a task x number of days prior to or following a program. While I was able to find a workaround using functions, it requires the task deadline to be calculated from a date in the same row. I want the ability to put in a date for the entire base - say the date a program begins - and have the task deadlines calculate from that instead.

  • Occasionally hangs at login but this may be to do with our authentication service.
  • It would be nice when grouping cards together if there was an option to lay them over each other in a fan arrangement.

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.

We have used MS Project previously but ended up doing things in spreadsheets so KanBanchi has bridged this gap for us

  • We have seen great value in our planning for Agile deliveries especially when applying it to SCRUM.
  • Using the product we have found it quickly surfaces resource constraints and blockers when planning for projects.
