Want to go on a 5-min speed date with Airtable? It's got so much to offer - it'll be love at first sight, I know it!

Templates

My love of Airtable was cemented several years ago.

I was searching the internet for a cloud-based platform that would enable me to manage the assortment of information that wove its way through my business and my life.

I was done with filing cabinets and manila folders overflowing with paper.

I was tired of expending physical and mental energy to locate elusive pieces of paper with scribbled notes.

I wanted to be able to access information 24/7 from the palm of my hand.

The solution needed to be easy on the eye and happy to do all the heavy lifting.

It had to provide a reliable way of administering my business & life.

It needed to be intuitive, accommodating, affordable and flexible.

Airtable ticked all the boxes.

I now spend most days in its company.

I have also started to leverage its robust features to create templated solutions.

My templates are designed to record & organise the assortment of information we need to administer life.
