Airtable

Many business processes can be improved with a collaborative relational database, but few know how to create and use one. 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. The combination of a minimal learning curve and features make Airtable a win. I've already recommended it to colleagues at other universities who've started using it.

MeisterTask

MeisterTask is just like Trello but sexier.Suitable to manage projects either personal or professional in a very agile way.It is very useful to manage team projects with internal teams or external suppliers or even managing projects with clients.I use it to manage tickets with suppliers and avoid emails going back and forward.

Pros

  • We love using Airtable as a CMS! The relational aspect and linking to other tabs makes it easy for different employees to use the same data sets for a variety of reasons without any particular tab or view getting to cluttered for use.
  • We use Airtable to plan our annual conference, from the logo design to sponsorship opportunities to coffee breaks! The variety in field options and flexibility of the database allow us to do all the planning necessary with just one web app.
  • The polls feature is a great way to hold electronic votes, whether it's our members or the board. All records are then tracked in the same base as the initiative or project, making it easy to reference when needed.

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.

  • For me everything works fine except problems using it mobile - crashes easily.

As I said, it's AMAZING, incredibly flexible -- totally intuitive, requiring almost no learning curve. I love that because it makes it easy to share with clients, without them having to learn how to use it.

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

This tool has 100x the functionality/usability of Excel or Google Sheets, is much more flexible and user-friendly than Salesforce if you don't have the technical know-how on your team to customize (Salesforce does have far more advanced and intelligent CRM capabilities).

Return on Investment

  • Airtable has allowed us to streamline and automate almost all of our repeatable processes, saving loads of team time.

  • Airtable has allowed us to embed our application form on our website and have all applicant data feed directly into our database for scoring and program planning,
