Airtable have a loooot of potential for public informations sharing but is currently missing its opportunity. I would not pay for 1000 users as commenters but I would like to let 1000 users to give me their feedback on some records from a base in my Pro Plan.
An easy way to do it would be to set “Commenter users” the same way as “Real-Only users”, not considered within the billing.
Benefit for a company : Be able to gather a lot of feedbacks on multiples assets & data from the public
Benefit for Airtable : More customers & visibility. Since I want to gather some information from a lot of Customer & Suppliers, I will want to invite them all as “Commenter” so they will learn about Airtable and because they will need to create an account they might try and buy.
Per example :
Share a Kanban Product roadmap and gather suggestions
Share a Products Gallery view to gather feedbacks
Share a video asset base with mass users to let them clic on a video record, watch it through dashboard (loom or video) and give me their feedback trough the record comment feature.
