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

Planview Projectplace

It is well suited for diverse and matrixed project teams especially those that are geographically dispersed. [It's also well suited] If you have a large number of documents that need to be approved and need to track that approval. It is also nice that team members (like a client) do not have to purchase a license to use Projectplace.ProjectPlace is not well suited if you have to do any sort of resource scheduling or forecasting, or if you need that to drive the project schedule. I wasn't thrilled with the WBS management functionality so if you need to have a robust WBS you might consider a different tool.

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.

  • Easy management of documents, with versioning and commenting/sharing tools.
  • Can plan tasks and schedules for efficient working.
  • Straightforward user interface and easy to use once set up.
  • Excellent tools for online meetings with telephone dial-in integration.
  • Integrated well with email notifications.

Cons

  • This, perhaps, is a function I have yet to explore, but as I need to upload photos into AirTable for use in planning exhibitions it would be nice when exporting AirTable documents that these photos would be exported in the Excel document spreadsheet as well.

  • Account administration could use some work. Does not afford the detailed data or knobs and levers to manage the account at a granular level. For example, the inability to assign departments to external (non-account) project members.
  • New features get rolled out fairly frequently, but sometimes with only partial functionality and with little fanfare or supporting documentation.

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

Excel is only good for numbers, not words or relational database. Access is too complicated for a total novice to build databases from scratch.Task trackers and project planners like Asana have limited functionality.
