I like the star rating option that I have just discovered. It makes it very easy to hold departments accountable.
I dislike that I didn't find out all of the templates and features earlier!
Make sure you are comfortable giving editor privileges to certain individuals. An editor can doctor the complaint, or other, tracking and delete records. If this is a method in which your holding people accountable please make them commentors only unless necessary and make sure commentors and receiving Airtable notifications to their main inbox.
I tried downgrading some people I shared the link with to Commentor instead of Editor and they could not even comment. I had to give them more privileges again in order for them to type into the account. I'd like a more restrictive platform so that others can enhance or change the complaint tracking.
The ability to link data together without code
It's clean interface and easy to use color-coded dropdowns
Collaborative online environment, back up systems, quick set up
So much to love here for the affordable price tag
There have been many times I needed airtable to do a lot more and found it far too simple.
Can't link data across bases, can't create unique formula's down a column, its 1 or none.
When adding to a linked database and making a new entry there is zero warning you are adding something that is not linking making new records in place you don't want them.
Amazing fun production tool, takes about 4 hours to learn through videos and practice.
We left Excel completely and use airtable for project solutions.
We track a variety of workflow proceedures and their various stages/steps easily.
I like the interactive nature of Airtable. It's a great place to collaborate with colleagues.
The formatting of Airtable can be tricky to get right. Don't expect all of the bells and whistles of Excel.
We use Airtable as a collaborative database for everything from meeting agendas to a CRM database.
It's great to have a spreadsheet and database combo to use to follow up with clients. For me, I help direct sales marketers with social media services, and recently with other services like getting mailing lists, and introducing them to ways to keep that mailing list straight. I have a client who uses AirTable and loves it because not only can you set up all your contacts/customer leads, and a calendar for them, but also add notes.
Also, it's awesome that there are existing templates for creating a calendar, because whether you need a calendar for customers, or for social media and blogs, or running ads, or whatever, it makes it intuitive to set up a calendar.
It's nice that you can use the software to create forms, and then have people's form responses added to a database. But it would be better if you could make a "pretty" form/survey with pictures and backgrounds, the way you can in Google Forms. (Or, you can, but that's only a feature if you pay $50 and my client does not want to do that.)
Have an Excel CSV of your contacts list ahead of time -- that will save you even more time importing everything into Airtable! Also, if you have peers in your industry, the two of you can share/see each other's databases and compare notes.
Airtable and its way of switching between Grid view and Calendar view provides a great way of networking and FOLLOWING UP WITH a large list of people -- perfect for direct sales marketers! It's easy to create custom form fields.
Like, what my client did was create a "Follow-Up Date" field, so she could see when and if she had followed up with new leads. And then that was visible in both the spreadsheet and database parts of Airtable. It really helped her make sure that no new leads slipped through the cracks (and that no customers who had reached out to her felt forgotten).
Airtable is a fantastic upgrade to a spreadsheet and can really help to manage different activities at work. It can help add more functionalities to your spreadsheet and accelerate productivity.
I think the biggest disadvantage of Airtable is the friction to usage compared to a spreadsheet which affect adoption among all the team members.
Used it to track marketing activities and projects.
Love that you can color code and track any updates. It's user friendly! Get's my projects done.
If it's a large project, tasks get a little cluttered.
Make sure to do a lot of playing before implementing, you'll find lots of useful features.
Project management! Holding people accountable is the best.
This software has completely transformed the way my team and I brainstorm, create and manage our social media strategy and tasks.
There is not a whole lot I dislike about Airtable. I do wish we could schedule and post our social media posts directly from Airtable - to cut out another software platform I am not as excited about. Hopefully, that is in development!
This platform has transformed the way our team brainstorms, plans and executes our social media strategy. It has made us way more productive and has increased the quality and quantity of our content.
Now that we have a bigger social media team, Airtable helps us collaborate our workflow in order to make us more organized and efficient. Before, we were having trouble organizing and delegating tasks and brainstorming sessions.
having complete visibility to manage any kind of data. Extremely easy to use, incredibly customizable.
Can't really think of any thing at this time.
It may take a minute to figure out how to use.
Manage our marketing content and keeping track of sponsorship sales
I run a talent agency, and I am able to organize my roster of actors, dancers, and models based on any attribute I pick -- and I can sort them by their headshots! It's by far the best interface I've ever used for this.
I started with a personal account, and now my accounts are linked. It's more difficult to fix this than I wish it was.
Before I had to manually search talent, but now their comp cards are sorted easily. When I open their main headshot, I am given far more detailed information, and I am able to link interview notes to their staff profiles. Clients love seeing screenshots of this.
