    Pros: 

    Keeps things organized

    Incredibly easy to use

    Easily integrated with Zapier, so you can track almost anything

    Flexible and configurable

    Cons: 

    Formulas are complicated... would be nice if there was a formula builder

    We started using Airtable to manage our content projects at work. After using it for a month, I decided I liked it so much that I signed up for Zapier and Airtable to manage my personal projects as well. It has completely changed everything.

    Pros: 

    Powerful, flexible, user-friendly, customizable, fast, great offering at the free tier

    Cons: 

    Color options

    I like to describe Airtable as spreadsheets on steroids. It's a Google Docs-esque approach to database management for people who really don't understand databases. But even if you do understand databases you'll enjoy the speed and flexibility of this web tool and its apps.

    I use Airtable to track a number of projects and activities. It's far more effective than spreadsheets and allows you to quickly group data together in a way that makes more sense than you can get with other clumsy methods in other spreadsheet programs.

    Some of the rich formatting options are particularly nice, like hyperlinking URL fields and showing uploaded photos.

    Every serious professional should add Airtable to their toolbox.

@ssnacks, hey, I'm one of the cofounders of Airtable. Thanks for checking us out! You can: 1) Import a CSV (new app/table => import) 2) Directly copy and paste data from Excel/Google Spreadsheets/Numbers into a table.

Holy shit! This looks powerful. Way tooooo much happens in Excel still. Instantly reminded me of what Quip did to my MS Word usage.
