Overall Satisfaction with Airtable

I initially started using Airtable to assist clients as they worked through a certification process. The flexibility of the platform allowing clients to track progress toward meeting requirements and the integration with Slack enabled me to receive real-time alerts when a client made changes to their Base. Airtable proved to be so useful that we ended up using it for a variety of other purposes within my organization. We continue to find new uses for it, in fact.
  • The fact that Airtable is cloud-based is key to its utility. If you've ever dealt with the chaos that ensues when there are multiple versions of a document floating around your organization, you'll understand why we love Airtable -- its cloud-based nature means that everyone is always up-to-date.
  • Airtable is also incredibly intuitive and user-friendly. Anyone who can handle the most basic functions of Microsoft Excel can handle Airtable. We have used Airtable Bases to collaborate with a variety of clients and have found that most are quick to grasp the basics of Airtable with little or no training required.
  • Airtable integrates with a variety of other applications, including Slack and Zapier, which opens up vast opportunities for customization and incorporation into existing workflows. Airtable recently rolled out a new feature called "Blocks," which are modular apps available that make customization even simpler.
  • One feature that Airtable is unfortunately lacking is HIPAA compliance. I have seen a lot of enthusiasm among health care professionals about Airtable, but I have watched that enthusiasm evaporates upon learning that Airtable is not HIPAA-compliant. I think there is a large market that Airtable is missing as a result of this shortcoming.
  • I have only been using Airtable for a few months (and the Free version at that!), but it has already substantially increased capacity and efficiency at my workplace. It has become so vital to my daily work that upgrading to a paid account was a no-brainer.
Due to its incredible flexibility, Airtable is well-suited for almost any scenario that doesn't require HIPAA compliance.
