I use Trello heavily on my team. I love being able to see, at a glance what we’re working on and diagnose when we have a log jam of tasks.

I would move it all to Airtable if I had two features:

  1. “Status” Field Type. I want to set a record as To Do, Doing, or Done and see a progress bar that grows and/or changes color on status.

I want to customize the status based on my team’s work.

  1. Workflow View. I want to view my records and their status as if they are cards on a kanban board. Yes, just like Trello. Hey, they didn’t invent kanban boards, and they don’t have a patent on it (I hope).

I want to drag cards from one status to another.

  1. Airtable Super Powers. Here’s where Airtable would shine in the place that Trello falls.

Trello cards have no context. They don’t impact other resources and other resources don’t impacts cards.

I would love to associate a bigger project with a set of cards, or a particular campaign.

Basically want to link tables. Trello doesn’t have that. Airtable does.

What do you folks think? Would you use a Status Field Type & Workflow View?
