Airtable is a spreadsheet-database hybrid, with the features of a database but applied to a spreadsheet. Airtable is an easy-to-use online platform for creating and sharing relational databases. The user interface is simple, colorful, friendly, and allows anyone to spin up a database in minutes.
While programs like Excel function only as traditional spreadsheets, Airtable works similarly to both spreadsheets and databases. As a spreadsheet, you can structure information in a grid view with the expected format of columns, rows, and cells.
We will begin the course on how to create a table and how fields work, such as text and number fields, date/time fields, value list fields, attachment fields, and formula fields. We’ll go over how to work with records, including how to import external records; how to create, edit, and delete records; how to filter records; and how to sort and group records.
Airtable gives you several different ways to view your data, and we’ll go through all the view options. You’ll learn how to link tables and how to incorporate lookup fields.
Simply, Airtable takes the best aspects of spreadsheets and databases, and puts them together.
Airtable can store information in a spreadsheet that’s visually appealing and easy-to-use, but it’s also powerful enough to act as a database that businesses can use for customer-relationship management (CRM), task management, project planning, and tracking inventory.
