Better than a Spreadsheet? Why You Should Be Using Airtable.

Have you ever tried to use a spreadsheet for information tracking (like a database)? It can be a simple process, or it can be quite frustrating. What if you have to somehow link two lists of items together? If you're using a spreadsheet (or even Google sheets), good luck keeping things organized without creating a bunch of messy columns filled with notes.

What is Airtable?

Airtable is a cloud-based product that's similar to a spreadsheet, but built for the age of automation. It's perfect for storing information that can become complex and unwieldy. You can easily link records across tables, dynamically update data instantly, add files & images, and collect information from forms. It's all the best features of Google Sheets, and none of the hassle of complex formulas & formatting.

Record Linking

One of the strongest Airtable features is the ability to easily link multiple records across tables. Take a look at this example to see how easy it can be to link projects and invoices together:

OnRamp Airtable Example

I built this from scratch in about 20 minutes - using only a single formula! 95% of this sheet was built using point and click tools, and the data is dynamically connected and automatically formatted. Using Airtable, it's easy to collect and display the information that you need.

Integrations & Automation

Another powerful Airtable feature is the ability to integrate with other tools using Zapier. Easily create, update or edit your Airtable rows, no code required.

Using Zapier, Airtable and Quickbooks Online, you could automatically create a new invoice based on information from your project database. Then, with a click of an Airtable checkbox, you could trigger that invoice to be sent to your client!

Stop storing your data in complicated spreadsheets that can get lost, corrupted or destroyed by user error. Airtable is the smarter solution for all modern companies who need to keep track of their information.
