Overall Satisfaction with Airtable

We are using Airtable across the whole organisation, everything from applicant tracking to project management. We've found it to be incredibly versatile due to the ability to filter, group and work with records.
Every time someone mentions using Excel for something that isn't a financial report we point them towards Airtable and they see how much better it is.

Pros

  • Slice and dice data - it's much easier than other tools to group records and create insights
  • Generate reports - they've recently released a functionality called 'Blocks'. We are using this tool to automatically generate dashboards and reports from data.
  • Fit different work styles - You're not limited to viewing the data in a spreadsheet. You can view it on a calendar, Kanban, or in a card style view.

Cons

  • The new Block functionality is relatively new and could be extended to provide more layout design/flexibility
  • Currently, there is no way to link between spaces. This fact means you have to put all related information in the same 'base'. This limitation can lead to data permission problems and bases that have loads of tabs
  • We haven't been using it long enough to have concrete ROI, but using Airtable has greatly improved the flow of data within the organisation.
Anytime you have data you want to generate insights from, Airtable will be a great choice.
It works really well with structured and unstructured data.
It's not designed to be a financial tool. You can do some numerical tasks with it, but it's not suited to scenarios where you need to do many different types of numerical analysis.
