Plant Landscaping Tracker
Hannah’s base, Plant Landscaping Tracker, is beautiful and visually appealing. She created this base to help keep track of all the plants she uses in her home landscaping. Included inside are fields for the plant name, the date it was planted, type of plant, season, area it was planted, watering requirements, and much more. She also added a Gallery view to give you a gorgeous look at all the plants and flowers she has around her home. This base is perfect for those with or without a green thumb because it tracks all your important information in one place. Hannah’s new base already received 10 base copies.
Book Tracker Database
Hannah’s Book Tracker Database was created for all the avid readers around the world and has a total of 714 base copies. This base is packed with information on books that you have read, are reading, or that are on your list to read next. With options to include how many times you’ve read the book, the year it was published, read status, genre, ratings by stars, and a library status if you are checking books out from your local library. While the base’s tables are filled with information on the book, author, genre, matrics, and status, the bases Views are what really make this book tracker database stand out. Hannah uses three different views in her base, Grid, Gallery, and Form, all to make searching and inputting this information a breeze. The Grid view shows all the data about books including books read this year, status, genre, and her rating while the Gallery View is a wonderful visual to select books to read next all while being able to see the cover of the book. It creates a virtual bookstore or library when viewing this database. The Form view utilizes Airtable forms to input all the data on the books in a quick way. Check out Hannah’s blog post all about this base and why she created it here.
We love seeing the creative and unique uses of Airtable that Hannah has created. These bases are fun and help to showcase the many different ways users all over can take advantage of the powerful platform. Thanks for sharing your awesome baes with us Hannah! We look forward to reviewing the metrics again next month where we are sure to find even more incredible work from all you Airtable fanatics.
