What does Airtable do well? Airtable is the best online replacement for complex databases solutions. For those of us who need a database but do not want to run a server it is awesome how easy and fully packed of features this software is. Database can be fully shared online with colabs with different level access and or views.
What does Airtable not do well? There are a lot of features that only get enabled by user, by space, with a complicated pricing structure. I wish they had an easier and cheaper all you can eat solution.
What do you wish you had known about Airtable before using? The pricing structure of airtable makes it really complicated and not that cheap when you want to go pro. The Free version works awesome, but when you try to get the good stuff prices get higher and higher by each user you add. It may have worked for them up to now, but since they are one of the biggest solutions online nowadays it would be great they review their pricing tiers.
Have you used a competitor to Airtable? If so, how does it compare? I have used local versions of MSSQL - MySQL - MS Access, etc. They are all hard and time consuming to install and maintain. Besides that they are not user friendly as Airtable is.
