Overall Satisfaction with Airtable

When my organization first looked into using Airtable, it was as a means of keeping better records of the NonProfit Organizations that OUR NonProfit supported, or wanted to support in the future. As we got to know the tool more we started realizing its potential for solutions across all departments of our organization. Airtable is now not only part of our workflow in operations, sales, recruiting, and outreach - but serves as a default front-end for internal tools we're developing.
  • Data Management and Collection.
  • Gone are days of collecting information from users, clients, partners, or employees and then having to re-enter that data elsewhere. The same tool you use to manage the data has the tools for collecting them.
  • Robust API for Scalable Individualized Solutions.
  • No software is going to be able to be everything for every organization, but the things that Airtable doesn't already provide ( and Airtable already provides solutions for many, many more things than you'd expect ) your company can build solutions for with an API that auto-publishes for every "Base" you create.
  • Re-contextualizing and Displaying Data.
  • Chances are your company already HAS data that would provide meaningful insight, but processing that data in a way that provides the clarity you're looking for can be a bit of a challenge. Between its basic features and "Blocks" Airtable takes most of the challenge out of presenting and contextualizing your data to provide clarity on all aspects of your business.
  • Airtable's Freemium Pricing Model is fair - but the first paid tier doesn't offer much for what amounts to half the cost of the next tier up. That could perhaps be better balanced.
  • Some data at your organization applies to all projects, so it's disappointing to find that there isn't a way to have a "Base" with data that is available to all other "Bases". That said, I've already been told they're working on implementing this, and in the meantime, it was very easy for us to use the Airtable API to produce the same result ourselves.
  • See previous responses.
Airtable has me super, super impressed. I honestly can hardly think of scenarios where Airtable isn't suited, but that might be my Rose Colored Glasses. Honestly I think it would only fall short if you had extensive needs for customized representation of data - but I'm willing to bet Airtable can do more than you expect it could.
