This is a super difficult tool to explain because it can do so much! It's definitely worth checking out their Support section and watching their helpful explainer videos.
One way to explain Airtable might be that it combines the power of a spreadsheet and a database that you have complete control over. Some use cases might be creating an employee directory, a social media calendar or a project tracker. Check out their templates for more examples.
Now on to the official description...
Part spreadsheet, part database, and entirely flexible, teams use Airtable to organize their work, their way.
Think of Airtable as a toolkit that empowers you to build your own workflow application.
We make it easy for you to create powerful and flexible databases so that you can create, manage and share all of your ideas, projects and more.
While you'll notice that Airtable resembles a spreadsheet, you'll quickly learn that it's much more than that.
Airtable fields can handle any content you throw at them. Add attachments, long text notes, checkboxes, links to records in other tables—even barcodes. Whatever you need to stay organized.
Organize anything, with anyone, from anywhere.
Our native mobile and desktop apps make it easy to edit, comment, and collaborate in real-time — changes are instantly synced across everyone’s devices.
Configure the perfect view.
Break free of the grid. Powerful filtering, sorting, and grouping give you the freedom to arrange your work just the way you like. Choose the right views for your content, and save them for easy access any time. Choose from the Calendar view, Grid view, Gallery view and Kanban view.
Link related content intelligently.
Say goodbye to duplicate data entry. It only takes a few clicks to link records between tables, creating smart relationships.
Use an Airtable template
The team here at Airtable has made hundreds of templates designed for specific use cases, like an employee directory, a social media calendar, a nonprofit gala planner, or a sneaker collection tracker. These templates are bases that come pre-filled with a relevant structure and sample content. If you're still learning the Airtable ropes, check out a template or two for inspiration—you can always modify it later to suit your own needs!
