I’m considering moving over a generic database I made in Access. I use a database for tracking participants of an ongoing teaching and learning curriculum. I need to track each participants progress, contact information, credentials, graduate year, school, attendance to seminars as well as specific classes. I’d like to incorporate mail merge to have emails sent when a seminar is missed, upcoming workshops/seminars, and action requested notifications. I’m unsure how to separate my information into tables or should I keep as I do now, ALL on one big table? It’s an exciting project it’s a matter of where to begin!?

Hi @Libertie_Santalucia,

Welcome to Airtable Community!

I recommend you start small. Import via csv or copy and paste a small portion of your table and play around with it. Ask yourself what do you want to see exactly in this Base.
