Airtable as a CMS vs. Webflow CMS?

I am building out a job board on webflow, and I had a workflow where a user would fill out a form to submit a new job, form data would go to Airtable, then from Airtable back to the Webflow CMS. Does this make any sense? (Using Zapier). Or should I just move the data from the Webflow form directly to the Webflow CMS? Thoughts?

Yes, that makes perfect sense.

I have a job board example that uses PowerImporter to sync Airtable to Webflow.

The best part of using Airtable as your CMS is that you can manually approve/reject job postings in Airtable before they appear in Webflow (to stop spammers/scammers). Simpy create a view that filters job listings with an “approved” checkbox, and tell PowerImporter to only sync those to Webflow.
