After extensive research, it seems that Airtable’s api just isn’t yet set up to really make it sing with to do manager like todoist.
I’m not sure if this is an integrations request or a feature request so I’ll take the group’s guidance.
But here’s my question:
We absolutely love airtable for project management with our clients. However we are losing two critical features and maybe this group can help us figure it out:
1. discussion on a particular document. ( we think for now this is best done in the document or in the record itself. but it would be nice if one could get auto informed of a discussion on a record in slack -maybe that’s already possible? so much to know)
2. more importantly, and seemingly harder to solve: tasks management when each record is a task that has multiple owners. Take for instance the creation of a client blog post. Someone has to write it, a different person edits it, and a different person might do artwork.
How are most people handling that step? is it literally creating a table of sub tasks for each line item? are those in a different table? How are you dealing with dependencies? How are you tracking progress to completion overall or looking at the position of each task as a whole?
3. least importantly, I love todoist and I want to be able to have a task assigned to me in Airtable show up with its associated link, record, and all the data around it in a todoist task.
At this point, we’re paying someone to manually maintain all this, but I’d like to see if there’s a better way.
