I was wondering who could help me determine if AT can be a very good solution for our needs:
Can I then move a qualified prospect to another table, or bd, and hence not keep the original record ?
Is it better to create a table in a separate database, or can I hide 1 table from a database to some people so the view does not get cluttered ?
If we adopt Airtable, I’ll transfer there some specific functions we currently solve with custom (Python) scripts polling our Trello board. I could not find whether I can do the following :
For every record (currently record) that has not had an interaction, trigger an alert (New record in a Reminder table to show an action to be completed ? Draft message prepared there ?)
Based on those criteria, prepare a draft email that gets saved in a IMAP email account ?
I understand a workspace has its own plan so if I buy a pro plan it only applies to 1 space, but I can have many databases in it, each with many tables, provided each db is not over the plan limit ?
Any fear of having the access/use slowing down ? For hundreds of cards in a board I have lag issues with Trello.
Thanks for your input.
You could create a Leads table and a Contacts table. In the Leads table, you could create a single-select field called Status and add options like ‘Qualified’ and ‘Not Qualified’.
Then, create an automation that ‘when a record is updated’ as Qualified, you create a record in the Contacts table.
As far as your other questions -
1 and 2. you could create a Formula field that calculates 7 days from the date created field and have it say ‘Needs contacted’ - you can then create an automation based on “when the field contains ‘Needs contacted’” > send email to specific email address

yes, 1 workspace can contain however many bases you want. Depending on the plan you choose, Free can have collaborators for free. Pro will charge you for each collaborator on a base.
as far as slowing down, everyone has different experiences. just really depends on your set up. but enterprise businesses use it for their work, so it must not be too bad. :slightly_smiling_face:
