Is this possible with Airtable?

I’m brand new to Airtable and want to build the following:

A project template that individual teams complete across the organisation
A central dashboard view of certain fields from all projects e.g. total number of projects, total value of projects etc.

Basically I want to be able to get a real-time overview of certain aspects of all projects.

Can Airtable do this? If not, other there good no-code alternatives out there?

Thanks!!

Hi Elvin,

Yes, this is possible with Airtable. I’ve actually done this very thing and scaled it across a large organization. There are several variables to consider here like the complexity of the project template and any variability across projects. There will be many more variables to consider as well. The most significant effort you will have is creating the template, as you want to make sure you work through any implementation challenges from the beginning.
For a short description of the approach I took, I created a project template that I could duplicate for each project. Then, I created a global base that all projects sync to. This gave me a project-by-project view, allowed for each project team to have their own space, and allowed for the global view.
If you would like more detail, I’m happy to work with you on getting yours set up and running so you don’t have to work through the same challenges I faced.

Wonderful, this sounds just like the thing that I’d like to do! What would be the best way to connect - I’d love to take you up on the offer to help me get started.

Thanks Chris
