Airtable Launches New Automation With Google Docs

Airtable’s new functionality lets teams easily generate reports and progress updates so teams can save time and stay aligned 

Airtable, the connected app platform that enables teams to build workflows that modernize their business processes, today launched document automator, a new automation that lets teams export data directly into a Google doc and format data into clear updates for teams. With document automator, teams can automatically compose monthly department updates for leadership, weekly snapshots of completed work, or any other custom reports needed to keep teams aligned on progress.

Monthly reports, weekly updates, and daily check-ins – no matter the cadence – are essential to keeping teams and stakeholders informed about the organization’s most critical work. These activities, however, are time consuming and teams waste a lot of time manually exporting information from different places. With document automator, Airtable data can automatically and easily be transferred to Google Docs for faster and more seamless reporting. Document automator helps teams save time spent collecting, formatting, and sharing information, so teams can focus on more strategic tasks.

“As we’ve sharpened our focus on the needs of enterprise businesses, customers are scaling their use of our products to department- and company-wide processes, establishing Airtable as a source of truth for their most valuable operations,” said Howie Liu, co-founder and chief executive officer of Airtable. 

 Airtable’s technology is relied upon by more than 80% of the Fortune 100, and the company’s customer base spans industries and includes Monzo, Amazon, Baker Hughes, IBM, LVMH, Netflix, Nike, Red Bull, Restoration Hardware, and Under Armour. The company’s low-code tools enable knowledge workers in virtually any business function – from marketing to product to operations to finance to HR and beyond – to build customized applications that previously required deep technical skill or significant IT investment. By 2023, the number of people developing software applications outside of IT at large enterprises will be at least four times the number of professional developers, according to Gartner.
