6 Business Apps with Airtable as backend

6 Business Apps with Airtable as backend

Published May 29, 2022
At Pory, we're working on a frontend solution that brings all your favourite tools together for creating business apps at the speed of thought.
The first tool on our list is Airtable, a visual database that works like a spreadsheet, making it the perfect data source for creating data-driven websites.
To help you see our capabilities, we've put together the following list of apps to help you get a taste of what can be built:

1. Mentors Directory

In this example, we have a directory of growth mentors for startup. Users can sign up for an account to get access to mentors and book a time through Calendly. Other examples of directories you could create include employeealumni or even local businesses.

This is our mentors table on Airtable. New mentors can join by filling out a form.

2. Job board

In this example, we've created a job board listing job opportunities across a portfolio of companies. Applicants can apply through an Airtable form for the position and receive updates as the status of the job progresses. You can learn how to create your own automated job board following our tutorial and then subdomain or embedded it using a widget when you're ready.

Below, we use Airtable for managing our job listings and job applicants. Try clicking on apply, submitting your application and see your details submitted into the applicants table.

3. Tutorials

In this example, we've turned this Adobe tutorial list into a searchable and filterable listing. This makes it a lot easier for the user to go through 101 illustrations and maintainable for the author. The list is automatically updated whenever a new entry is created!

This is what the curated Adobe tutorials look like on Airtable:

4. Membership Portal

In this example, we've created a fellowship program for members to access mentors, perks, events and job listings. The memberships includes a dashboard for managing all your members, create access to members-only content and soon you will be able to charge members a monthly subscription.

This Airtable base powers the entire members portal. See how each page pulls content from a different table?

5. Resource Hub

In this example, we've curated Airtable scripts from the community and created a resources hub. Users can also contribute by submitting to the list and buy a coffee to the maintainer of the project. Other resource hubs you can create include toolkits and onboarding information etc.

Below is our CMS for curated Airtable scripts. See how there's an approved field? This is to prevent people from adding inappropriate content to the resource list. Did you know you can set up automations on Airtable to receive notifications when a new entry is added?

6. Events

In this example, we've curated a list of conferences for startups with information and a gallery of images from the event. Another example is creating a course library with embedded videos.
