I find myself categorizing each Base in a WorkSpace by Bustiness Process - Finance, HR, Sales, … This is not a one-to-one relationship, so Naming Conventions has its limits. The benefits of a customizable “tag” system or category could help with one of the most challenging parts of Base Organization, Template Identification, and Navigation- all of which are key components of the UI - in how I use Airtable.
Would appreciate any other ideas to build upon this simple concept!
In my mind - The next “phase” could be automated integrations into discoverable services of Types with predefined interface requirements. Predefined QoL, etc.
Eventually as the services abstract to less granular functions, - in the case of finance or HR - these departments could serve broad business needs through a standard “contract” required by the standardized, discoverable, automated interface. The best HR Bases for a common set of requirements wins that market segment of the industry. Doesn’t matter who, what matters to the business model of Airtable is the Number of Customers. Collaboration Encouraged.
