Each month, we like to showcase some of the new features we’re adding to Airtable to make our platform more accessible, more intuitive, and more powerful. In late March, we launched Gantt View, smart automations, new ways to sync your data, email digests, and a whole lot more. If you missed it, you can read all about it here.
But we’re not slowing down. This month we’ve got three big improvements to share. Read on—or watch this two minute for the breakdown.
A new place to find help
We built Airtable to be intuitive, flexible, and powerful. But with great power comes... well, you know. That’s why we’ve made it even easier to seek help by adding an in-product center you can access right from within Airtable. And of course, our original Help Center isn’t going anywhere—and we’re continuing to create all-new ways to master Airtable.
Now, near the upper-right corner of your bases, you’ll see a little question mark alongside the words “Help.” Click it, and you can explore a new sidebar packed with quick tips, videos, tutorials, you name it. We’ve even included GIFs, which offer quick, looping tutorials showcasing use-cases directly in Airtable.
We’ll continue updating the new help center for months to come, ensuring it's a useful way to get answers fast.
A new calendar for Android
There’s a reason calendars have been around since the Neolithic age. They’re unequivocally the best way to visualize time, and after all these years they’re still the best way to get teams on the same page. With that in mind, we’re rolling out our Calendar view to Android phones and tablets everywhere. Now our fellow green bubbles can see what’s coming up tomorrow, next week, or even next year with a simple tap.
If you’re a Pro plan user, you can also use the date field picker to define specific date ranges with your calendar view. This is a fantastic way to see what’s coming down the pike in a quarter, which can help with everything from scheduling deliverables, to opening a new headcount, or even messaging your quarterly goals.

A new path for marketers on Airtable
Successful marketing can feel a little like metaphysics. But the boring truth is that success is usually achievable just by nailing the fundamentals. And you probably know what those are: things like content operations, campaign tracking, social media, event planning.
That’s why we’ve made it even easier for marketers to get started using Airtable, with a whole slew of templates that are more focused and more useful than ever before.
That’s it for this month! We’ll be back next month to share even more great new features. Until then, happy Airtableing.
