Overall Satisfaction with Airtable
Our marketing department uses it in a number of different ways, its versatility is one of its strong points. Our two most significant use cases are as follows: Firstly, we have a massive base containing all of our programs and channels that are broken out by individual activities/campaigns/etc. (over 1300 records) that all feed into a number of Airtable apps. Secondly, we have another base being used as a DAM that contains well over 1000 documents, images, etc. organized by a multitude of attributes. Personally, I have a number of other bases that I use for various areas of my job, all of which are incredibly customized to fit my needs and the needs of the topics. The versatility and customizability of Airtable are really, really great. You can format, structure, link, and edit to make it do (virtually) whatever you want.
- Visualize data in an organized and aesthetically pleasing manner
- Hide information to simplify use without having to delete or archive
- Use the same data set to create a multitude of different views that cater to different needs without having to update multiple locations
- Airtable's Interface functionality needs a bit of work but to be fair, it is still in beta
- The graph/chart apps are great but I wish they were significantly more customizable
- In my experience, Airtable is like skiing, it's easy to learn/use but it's hard to really get good at. Maybe offer formal certification courses of some kind?
- The ability to create multiple views of the same data source
- The multitude of field options and their customizability
- Calendar views
- Gallery views for use in a DAM
- I'm not sure I can put an actual # to it but I would say significant

If you're looking for formal project management software, I think there might be better apps out there. But to be fair, I have not used it much at all for formal (marketing) project management goings-on. Otherwise, I would be hard-pressed to find a scenario that wouldn't benefit from Airtable. It's kind of like excel's much more attractive cousin that's far more personable and charming but probably isn't as smart, which is still a compliment. If my company were to drop Airtable, I would certainly have a panic attack as I spend hours every single day using it and I quite literally depend on it in so many ways to do my job.
