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.

Lucidspark

Lucidspark excelled in the areas of the pre-templates that was already created for consumers to utilize. If these pre-templates were not already available for me to edit then I would have been very lost on my dissertation assignment. I also love the fact that Lucidspark had various templates of flowcharts specific to the style or area of need the consumer works in.

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

Lucidspark

  • It is very easy to get started. You can open a board and start putting stick notes on it right away. It's intuitive enough that anyone can dive in and use it.
  • It is very simple and unstructured. While Lucidchart was geared toward flowcharts (and I co-opted it to my own purposes), Lucidspark is open to whatever format you need. There are templates available which are helpful, but you can also free-form as much as you like.
  • It is easy to collaborate. You can share a board with colleagues, use it real-time to collaborate on a story map by putting sticky notes together from an entire team, or take notes together.

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.

Lucidspark

  • I find it difficult to use the cursor and to understand how I can grab and drag a few items together, how to expand, etc.
  • Too many shapes that you can chose from, it's good to have just a proper shape for a database, a bucket, and a couple of more shape which differ from one another. But I don't think that much more than that is needed, for my use simplicity is the best, and I find myself scrolling through all the options for too much time instead of focusing on the design which I want to create.

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

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.

There is definitely a learning curve. The controls are counter to what you may expect or be used to. I am sure there are keyboard shortcuts, but I don't feel confident with them and sometimes the linking can be finicky. If you are a perfectionist, you can easily spend way too much time trying to make everything line up perfectly, since its not the most natural inclination of the software.

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.

We received an initial training from Lucid which was great, very informative and applicable to our own use case that we wanted to explore. We really haven't had any issues with the platform. I am not sure how to make feature requests, but this survey looks to be a good start.

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.

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.

Lucidspark

I think Lucidspark performs best in conjunction with Lucidcharts. There are other whiteboarding apps that have just as good, if not better feature sets. However, none of these allow for the quick transition to a working document that we regularly use with Lucid. Additionally, Lucidspark had the best filtering/sorting tools and the easiest meeting tools (timers, votes, etc) in my opinion

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.
Tyler Collum | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lucidspark

  • I saw increased customer confidence. As we were discussing ideas and the project, everyone was able to capture details, so there was little or no ambiguity.
  • Meetings are more effective, shorter, and we have a deliverable from each meeting that all attendees can access.
  • The diagrams and workflows are beautiful.
