Cool Tech Tools: Airtable
When it comes to running a successful business, how important is it to be organized? In a word: very. Now, how would you rank your organization skills? Honestly, the answer really doesn’t matter. We can always get help from technology, and this is where Airtable comes in.
Airtable goes beyond spreadsheet solutions when it comes to tracking teams, projects, tasks, dates, and other information in your business. Cloud-based, Airtable allows you to organize information in a database – they call them bases – of tables. While databases can be complicated, Airtable makes it easy because it looks just like a spreadsheet.
Airtable allows users to create a flexible database that fits their particular needs. Some of the use cases include project tracking, product development, event management, team collaboration, lists, planning, pipeline management, calendars, and so much more. Templates are available to jump-start your project.
Because Airtable is like a spreadsheet, it has been compared to Microsoft Excel®. However, it is important to remember that Airtable is like a spreadsheet and like a database. Further, Excel can function only as a traditional spreadsheet, while Airtable gives its users more options, especially when it comes to customization.
Getting into the details of Airtable, fields can even be added for attachments, long text notes, checkboxes, links, and barcodes. It provides options for filtering, sorting, and grouping data.
Airtable also provides for integrations with other applications in case you need to move information from one place to another or add functionality.
Airtable has both free and paid plans. You can find out more here: https://airtable.com/
