Overall Satisfaction with Airtable

I use Airtable to track and manage my design projects. It allows me to stay on top of my assignments, and at a glance I can view the status of all of my current projects. Using Airtable helps prevent important tasks from falling through the cracks.
  • I can create tables, create and customize fields
  • Airtable has capabilities commonly found in spreadsheet applications, but also has some of the features found in databases.
  • The ability to filter fields. I set up a filter on the status field, so when a project is marked, complete, on hold, or canceled, that record is hidden from my current projects table view. If it is marked complete, the record is moved to the completed projects table view. In this way I can easily access a record of past projects
  • Being able to duplicate tables and create alternate views
  • Collapse and expand records. When I collapse the rows, I can easily scan current projects, next steps, project status, and due dates. When I expand the row, or field, I can see more detailed information about that field or record very easily. I can also expand or open the entire record. This is is helpful, when I am entering a lot of information to multiple fields in that record.
  • Changing font color | I wish Airtable had this feature, this would be incredibly helpful. I often have a long lists of projects and tasks. When I have a high priority project, it would be great to mark that project name in orange or red text or another standout color, so I don't lose sight of it.
  • Credit Program | Airtable has a credit referral program, that awards you with credits toward upgrades within the application. A credit that you could also use outside of the application would be better.
  • Workspace Appearance | You can change and customize the workspace appearance and change the dashboard color. There are some preset colors you could choose, but it would be great if they added a color picker, where you could pick a custom color or select a color with a hex value to match your organization's colors or just your own preferences.
  • Spreadsheet view
  • Field filtering
  • Alternate table views
  • Database and record feature
  • Collapsible and Expandable fields and records
  • Grouping records by certain fields
  • Airtable had helped me moved quickly between tasks and projects.
I have tried Trello,, Meister Task, and even Google Sheets. They are all great and solid applications. Some even have really nice user interfaces. However, none of them have met my primary need of being able to view my current projects and associated deadlines at a quick glance. They had other great features, but when I go to my project management tool at then start of the work day, I need to quickly assess what is priority and what is not and Airtable has done the best job on that front for me.

Would you buy Airtable again?


If you want to view your projects and tasks in a list view and have some database functionality, then Airtable is great for that. If you like to work in tiles and drag tasks or projects into different columns as the status changes, then Airtable may not work for you.
