Overall Satisfaction with Airtable

Airtable is used in many ways for my whole organization and for working with clients. It's an amazing and user-friendly tool which we use in any number of ways including:

  1. To-do lists
  2. Marketing campaign management
  3. Media contacts lists
  4. Website asset management
  5. SEO evaluation checklists
  6. Website valuation checklists

  • Marries an Excel-type spreadsheet with database functionality, making it the very easiest way to create a database that I've experienced.
  • The user interface is wonderful and so intuitive. It's a joy to use.
  • It's highly customizable and flexible, so you can do any number of things with it.
  • Hard to say what's missing, but maybe some top-level admin -- so databases can be organized by large groups (like business vs. personal) rather than just workgroups?
  • Maybe some tools built on top for things like asset management?
  • Haven't been focusing on ROI but Airtable is helping me be more efficient.
  • I'm hoping to create some databases that I can monetize. TBD what the ROI will be though.
There's a load of free functionality available with Airtable, so it's less expensive. It's also way more intuitive and user-friendly compared to Insightly. As for Asana, I don't need that level of team collaboration at the moment, but I like that I can share whatever I create in Airtable with my clients.
Any kind of lists, campaigns, checklists, asset management, onboarding forms, etc as I enumerated in my Use case.

Using Airtable

As I said, it's AMAZING, incredibly flexible -- totally intuitive, requiring almost no learning curve. I love that because it makes it easy to share with clients, without them having to learn how to use it.

  • Creating a database
  • Creating forms to embed in a website
  • Creating different views other than a straight list, like KanBan style.
  • Filtering data to create specific views.
  • It's so well designed, I can't really think of any.
Yes - It's okay, but to be honest, it's difficult to see a large database on a small device. It would probably be better suited to a tablet, but that's more a function of databases than of Airtable.
