Should You Be Using Airtable?

Airtable is a powerful cloud-based program for home or office. With a user-friendly interface, key features designed to improve connectivity within the workplace, and the ability to link to tools your business is already using, Airtable could be the answer to your disjointed workplace.

Should You Be Using Airtable?

Whether for business or personal use, Airtable has something to offer for every type of user. If you are tired of searching for data among a pile of spreadsheets, Airtable offers an easier way to manage and access your data. If connectivity between teams is essential for operations to run smoothly, then Airtable sync could be your answer.  

In the words of Howie Liu, Airtable’s CEO, the platform offers, “Ways to connect workflows, share data, and deepen trust between teams.”  

So, what exactly is Airtable? It’s a relational database. It’s an app builder. It organizes and analyzes data. What can it do for your business?  

Custom Apps Without Coding 

With the ability to customize and connect apps without code, Airtable brings your team together, reducing or eliminating data silos. Data silos, information that is not made available to groups working within the same company, often prevent a company from operating effectively. A report from Zendesk reveals that few companies feel their teams share data successfully. With Airtable, companies can build apps in real time connecting shared company data while enabling teams to work autonomously but in accord within the organization.


Airtable can integrate with other business tools like Salesforce, Zendesk, Google, and Asana, to name a few. This streamlining feature prevents the need of switching between platforms saving time and frustration. Your staff will benefit from increased collaboration and productivity. For example, if your company is using Slack, when the two are integrated, updates made in Airtable trigger notifications in Slack so your team members stay up to date. Or, consider Google Calendar. Any changes made within Airtable are in sync with Google Calendar.   

Flexible Interface

When it comes to flexibility, Airtable offers automations, and customizations to tailor the individual user's view. Choose various formats for viewing such as calendar, grid, gallery, and timeline. Pre-built customizable templates are offered for digital marketers, project managers, designers, HR and recruiters, and event managers, to name a few. 

However, for companies without prior knowledge of constructing and configuring the tools available, it may take more time to build the interface compared to other similar products on the market.

Ease of Use

Airtable can’t be beat for ease of use. Do you know anyone who struggles with learning new applications? Airtable just flows. Visually and functionally, it’s easy to use. The simple layout and formatting won’t overwhelm the user. Take the grid view, where users can clearly see what other people on their team are working on. The status box shows whether the project just started, is in progress, or complete. Visually speaking, the color options are soothing and the layout flows.  

Signing up is a snap. After about three clicks users can start exploring and customizing the interface with the free plan. Ranging from free with limited access, $10 per user per month for the Plus plan, $20 per user per month for Pro, and the Enterprise requires a consultation. Pricing is comparable for similar programs, such as Asana and Notion, however, the offerings are different. 

These are just a few of the key features that Airtable offers. If you are looking to upgrade with a customizable software platform to streamline your workplace, Airtable is worth exploring.
