Airtable

As mentioned previously, I currently developing an Airtable base to track student data and other teaching resource inventory. The children create year group databases. All of which work very well. I haven't encountered any issues or unsuitability thus far.

Trello

It is excellent for multiple groups or users with multiple activities at any one time, or for a single user wanting to have several project sections going on at any one time. It enables the user to keep things separate but all contained within a single portal, but it can become quite cumbersome relatively quickly.The bigger the organisation, the more consideration needs to be given to how exactly Trello is used to give the users the best experience, or even if multiple instances of the platform is necessary.

Pros

  • All the hard work of trying to build a solution in Excel is done for you. You can create links to simple mobile-friendly forms and datasheets and it builds input forms automatically that can then be easily customized.
  • The relationships across tables are robust and deal with changes to fields and tables without the need for intervention or maintenance (like a proper database).
  • Initial set up and use require a minimal set of IT skills. Coming with an array of pre-built templates and the ability to import your existing spreadsheet and customize and fine tune it from there into a database
  • They don't contact me every day trying to sell their product (probably because they don't have to).

  • Trello has an intuitive interface for organizing boards and tasks. The kanban-style layout of the boards is simple and logical - categories are arranged left to right, tasks are arranged from top to bottom. It only takes seconds to understand the goals of the interface with minimal experience needed.
  • The interactions within Trello feel natural and are consistent with what you would expect - double clicking to edit, drag and drop to move, etc. The interactions aid, rather than inhibit, my usage of Trello.
  • Theming - Trello allows users to theme their accounts/boards. When using multiple boards, it is awesome to not only customize the board to look and feel they way you want it to, but it also allows me to know exactly which board I am viewing at a glance.

Cons

  • A little more customisation of the forms would be fantastic. The interface is simple and helps avoid making problems for yourself, but being able to take out some of the white space and select different fonts or show basic formatting would be a good addition. But such is Airtable I am likely to find out with the right knowledge you can.
  • Not being able to connect "Bases" together. This can be addressed by building all tables you need in to one base and remembering you can always export the data out somewhere else if you need this level of integration.
  • If you are a larger or growing organisation, Airtables flexibility and ease at replacing spreadsheets needs to be managed (or you could replace your uncontrolled Excel addiction with an Airtable one).

  • Trello works by boards, which sometimes makes it difficult to work when we needed, for example, global labels. On each board, you must define and/or repeat your labels specifically.
  • We use it for small projects because its boards are limited when it comes to the management of many people or very large projects.

I'm not in charge of such a decision, but I am sure that we will continue to use Trello for the same purposes we have in the past.

When you dont feel like you need a support team; when things are intuitive; when you start relying on it for numerous projects - thats when you know it has great 'usability'

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.

For our small business, getting a few of us started well on Trello was the key, I think. As long as a couple of us were really comfortable with the interface, we could lead others and help them with any questions. From now on, anyone who works with us just naturally uses Trello for information sharing - it's just part of what we do.

Alternatives Considered

Vastly better-. Much easier to set up, edit and view across multiple platforms.
Juliet Sternberg profile photo
Trello is better than the other two mentioned in my opinion because of its flexibility as a tool, as well as its price (or lack thereof). We used the other two tools for a while before Trello and left them because of pricing (having to pay per user or per project) and because of their confusing interfaces that made it hard for us to share access to our clients without showing them everything we were doing and processing.

Return on Investment

  • Saved time providing updates on where tasks are up to. Anyone in the team can go in and look to see where things are up to.
  • Allowed the team to have access to the same information at the same time, saving time in people asking each other for data and information.
  • Before Airtable we had information stored in several places - Excel, Confluence, emails, on individuals' computers - now we've put it all in one place.

  • Your time in development of each project with Trello is very visible and remarkable, it gives you excellent management and you will be able to easily identify the problems and the missing work in each management of the projects.
  • Although there are some power up payments, they are also useful for the development of each project because it provides excellent support with tools such as opening tags allocation and communication.
