    If you are using Excel, then I think Airtable would be right up your alley.

    They have lots of templates like Project Tracker that give you a good intro to how you can use the software.

    The mobile apps are incredible and you can build public forms that feed into your sheet. It has nice Slack integration and can also talk to other stuff via Zapier if you want to pull data from say GitHub Issues or other sources.

    Check it out.

      That looks great!

      Thank you Jonathan, I have never heard of Airtable before. I am definitely going to check it out.

      Thanks for recommending! I'm one of the cofounders of Airtable, so please let me know if you need any help getting set up. As Jonathan mentioned, our project management templates are probably a good place to start.

      We also released our calendar view recently, which allows you to view your records (in this case, projects) on a calendar rather than a spreadsheet-like grid. I'd imagine this would be particularly useful for your use case.
