It features rich fields that can hold checkboxes, dropdown menus. Has traditional grid, calendar or “kanban” (like Trello) views. Realtime collaboration with commenting and change audit trails is a huge plus.
But its most powerful feature may well be its ability to add look-up fields that link to other sheets for data consistency, making Airtable a true relational database. Perhaps the best testimonial is that we manage all Toolhacker editorial items in Airtable. 😉
Price: Free (Unlimited bases, 1,200 records/base/2GB attachments/base); Plus (5,000 records per base, supports Blocks and 5GB of data): $10/mo.; Pro (50,000 records per base and 20GB of data): $20/mo.
