All-in-one product for marketing & information management

5.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

We use Airtable as almost anything. If you are familiar with Airtable, you know that it can be anything. Just to name a few: Marketing task management Document and resource listing Forms for recruiting or surveys Content planning CRM Documenting any sort of research Visualising simple data Expense tracking

Cons:

Airtable's some of the premium features are not very clear. So sometimes you have to stuck in some free features without knowing that you are already over capacity. However, using this product with free option for about 2-3 years in 2 different company so far. It's great! I also use Airtable for personal stuff like school applications, job hunting, and document/resource listing.

Alternatives Considered: monday.com

Reasons for Choosing Airtable: Excel is useless for task or project management.

Switched From: Microsoft Excel

Reasons for Switching to Airtable: Airtable is great with free option.

Airtable is a great collaborative project manager

4.0 2 months ago

Comments: My team and I like Airtable because it helps us keep track of all of our clients in one central location. My initial impression was that it wouldn't really make a difference in our regular operations, but now I see how wrong I was. With Airtable, users are able to work with many data types in a grid-based environment. It also facilitates the development of cloud-based apps that are easily integrated with other infrastructure.

Pros:

One of my favorite features is the ability to personalize each of my boards. Not only that, but I have the ability to work closely with my team by syncing and discussing our respective projects and making use of our shared notes. It's incredible how many wonderful things there are in the Universe. Airtable helps me plan out my monthly social media posts in advance. I'm able to keep on top of things and make timely social media posts because I plan ahead. My knowledge and experience have taught me to be more methodical and cooperative in my job.

Cons:

Every once in a while, things aren't as user-friendly as they could be. Sometimes I'll make my own template, but first I'll look at tens of others to get ideas. Be patient with the procedure; it will take some time to complete. Once set up, the interface is typically straightforward.

Just didn't do it for me

4.0 5 days ago New

Comments: I found Airtable to be a nice database alternative at first, but after using it for a while I felt it restricted me too much and was a mess to manage (too many "views", separate databases and filter-states)

Pros:

Easy import of Excel data, multi select fields, customizable fields

Cons:

Too many "views" make it difficult to see what part of the data you are managing right now Hard to find the export data option (it's there but it's well hidden) Filtering system difficult in complex situations Slow to make change Pricing limits you by number of rows

Alternatives Considered: HubSpot CRM

Reasons for Choosing Airtable: I was looking for a simple way to manage big chunks of data about contacts

Switched From: Notion and Microsoft Excel

Transformational

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Pros:

Airtable has transformed the way I do my work. I am able to automate tasks, share information with others, and quickly compile data. It is so integrated into the way I do my work that I can't imagine functioning without.

Cons:

Data is easy to get into Airtable and it is easy to manipulate data and information in Airtable. Getting data OUT of Airtable (e.g. printing reports) is still not as functional as I would like.
