Overall Satisfaction with Airtable

Airtable is used to make databases for differente purposes. We use it to make assets databases for our game production creation, pipeline and workflows. We integrate those databases so all information is in the right place at the right time. We use it to make financial sheets and reports too.
  • Great interface and user experience
  • Many ways to implement the database structure according to your needs
  • Different views for different uses make it a very flexible tool
  • The pricing of the paid tiers are expensive
  • Many limitations in the free and plus plans
  • The comments pane inside the cards is very limited
  • We use the free version of airtable, so it has a positive impact for us
  • We use it to better manage our finances, so it has a positive impact for us
  • We use it to better manage our assets, so it has a positive impact for us
As of other integrated databases softwares we used, we also use Notion.so to write and manage wikis for our projects. I've tested many other softwares that are similar to Airtable, like Coda, Fieldbook and Excel itself. Airtable has the better user interface and experience from them all and Airtable is very well coded, with everything happening lightning fast.
I've never had to use their customer support.

I think Airtable is suited for many scenarios. The tool is so flexible that you can use with a vast number of objectives. So, it's more a matter of how it will be configured and take the time to do it. It's important to see the limitations of the free and plus plans, and see if it is enough for your use.
