Almost every feature that is described by Airtable helps to power light weight tech-support that for my wife’s 21-day challenges in multiple formats that helps promote her healthy eating philopshy for kids. This became ever more significant during pandemic as she shifted bulk of her work online.
The diagram which you see below has been architected is powered using Airtable to create a workflow based architecture:
Airtable is a versatile cloud based sheet / database solution that helps automate large part of light weight process through
- Multiple data types
I use all of the above in combination to do multiple pieces in the workflow like
- Table Creations
- Data Grouping
- Use of filters , group by
- Analytics & Derivations
- Roll-up fields [ very power full feature ]
- Formulae to derive new fields [ this was another awesome feature ]
- Data Entry
- De-Dupe Checks
You can see above how the table data is quickly transformed into a basic chart visulization.
An awesome block to remove duplicate entries from the system , with few clicks and configurations.
Form rendition on mobile and desktop is very nie . Since we started to use this , the mothers [ who are primary collector of informaiton on behalf of kids who particpate ] , have found it easy to fill information and send it back to us!
We can work on top of the data and apply many conditioanlities , thus allowing a flexible viewing of data in real time. Some of these things can take coding effort while connecting with analytics but , first level aggregation and analytics on daily basis has been very easy to perform in Airtable.
Overall for a upcoming or very small set-up Airtable . If you want to know more about how to do things in Airtable , feel free to ping me via comments and I will see if I can help !
