Some of my teams are going to be getting to the point of having 50+ bases soon.

Please can we make folders and subfolders within a team so that I can get them organised?

Reading between the lines, I would speculate that this request not being actioned feels like a business decision, made to ringfence a bit of additional money from a subset of premium users resorting to having multiple teams to organise their work.

If that’s true, it’s a huge mistake in my opinion. From the evidence above alone, the financial upside for making Airtable work better at scale for large teams would be significant, to say the least.

+1 for this feature. My workaround has been to create a base to track bases! I have a “directory” base with a URL link and button to other bases. You can use labels for categories, departments, groups, people, etc. with different views to organize. Yes, this is not ideal but I do really like the functionality of Airtable compared to other solutions.

I cannot believe this is still not a feature. If they’re going to stick stubbornly to this absurd billing by workspace structure, they need to implement folders before their userbase starts peeling off or a third-party app steps in to help organize the dozens or hundreds of bases within a workspace.

OR

Change the billing structure so that no Pro-features user is billed over a certain amount per month. It’s absurd that if I want to organize my dozes of Pro bases across multiple workspaces (because that is currently the only way to group them, I’d be billed X amount of times for the same number of bases.

Can’t believe this still isn’t a feature. This lack of feature coupled with the billing structure means Airtable is not scalable for growing teams.

Still nothing from Airtable to address this issue? As a sole trader, I’m needing a way to divide up bases in my workspace between various other users (who are unrelated from one another) … along with those associated Pro costs… it’s a real pain. Really hoping this can be addressed sooner than later, as it impacts the growth points for those of us bringing new clients in to use Airtable.

why is @AIRTABLE completely silent on this front??? as a paying customer (for multiple workspaces) i find this disrespectful and infuriating. and with the “new” HOME update … now I cant even move the damn bases around anymore!!! WTH!!! Just why??? are you purposefully hurting your users???

Who has found a better alternative to migrate to??? #WRC

We are looking at Airtable as an alternative to Monday.com Right out of the gate I am looking to start things off with folders and come to find out there are none. Wow! As MANY have said thus far, this is a pretty basic feature for such a robust tool to be missing. Please do roll this out ASAP or at least share with the community why it is not being done. Thank you in advance! Mark
