About me: I am the Company Director for a photo experience & photo marketing company looking to switch our complicated (but effective) Google Spreadsheet over to Airtable. I have above average skills in spreadsheets, so I’m not coming in blind. I have imported an older version of our Event Database into Airtable and played around with it for 5-10 hours or so. I just have a few hangups in terms of seeing what we’re doing in Sheets translate over to Airtable.

We are currently using Sheets for:

  • Event Management (850+ events in 2017)
  • Data dashboard (using FILTER functions to SUM revenue, COUNT most popular products, etc)
  • Invoice records
  • Contact database


  • We are currently running Zapier automation to automatically pull information from new bookings into the spreadsheet
  • We’d love to automate more, so open to suggestions for other integrations (though this isn’t the highest priority)

I would like to set up a consultation meeting with an Airtable expert to review some of the things we are currently doing in Sheets to discuss what may or may not be successful in Airtable, and discuss how Airtable can improve on our current systems. We will then also need help setting up these systems in Airtable!

What are the biggest limitations with Google sheets that have caused you to seek another solution?

See if it’s one of these and let me know if you want to talk through your project. I may not be able to help you, but I’m curious to hear more about your business.

  • Lack of relational database features?
  • Lack of data validation features?
  • Something else?
