I use Integromat to create records in Knack but I often get ‘upstream connect’ errors which have to go into Integromat and manually resolve.

Hi Sarah I back at my desk again - and have been giving your requirement some thought. Maybe you've had a chance to look at the comparison document I've produced... (not sure where you are in the world though so maybe not). If you've looked at the blog side of this site, you'll see that I tend to focus on working with products I like and have found to be capable and well supported. At the moment this means Airtable, Knack and Ninox. Looking at your requirements, I don't think Airtable is the right platform for you - this isn't because I don't like Airtable - it's more that it isn't the best fit for some of the reasons you mention - and here are some others: Assuming you have several people using your database, you are not able to create a system in which users only see the elements they require to do their jobs. The User Interface is, I agree, very friendly and familiar. But for a complex database (and I think you should probably only have one) it soon becomes cumbersome and confusing. Presenting all the data in a spreadsheet type format is not ideal for systems used to automate processes and procedures. It isn't possible within Airtable to automate processes - for example sending an invoice out. There are others but what you want is a recommendation and for this particular application I would choose Ninox for a number of reasons: Like Airtable, Ninox has the ability to build nice looking databases with built in features for file attachments and comments. It has built in features for producing PDF documents, can automatically save them as attachments and even email them to people within the app. It has its own language which can really make your applications do the work for you. This is much easier to use than JavaScript and the learning curve is particularly gentle. You can read another blog post comparing it with JavaScript here. You can configure security access with several types of user should you need to control who can see what. It's available on multiple platforms (Cloud, Mac, iPad, iPhone and Android) with the ability to work offline using the apps - re-syncing when you re-connect. It's available in China (I checked with Ninox). You can get a trial licence for Ninox Cloud from their website. I hope this helps, Julian
