To accomplish this goal she turned to airtable to help create a timeline of when she needed to start preparing specific food items, keep track of recipes, and keep a list of items she needed to purchase and what their use would be.

Business Support Functions
Felicia designed this base to help bring information together that is often fragmented across different departments. In doing so, you increase communications across your departments. Her base Business Support Functions also utilizes Gravity Forms and Zapier to keep the information up to date. This versatile base help manage new and terminated employees, software renewals, employee newsletter, birthdays, company meetings, employees by departments, and much more.
For those that desire adventure, there is some planning involved when it comes to ironing out the details. This base, Adventures, is designed to make all those “we should totally do that” ideas become a reality. Felicia’s process beings with a form for suggestions on places to go. It allows the suggestor to then begin to organize the event by adding in details like costs, reservation information, and information about the location. By allowing everyone to see these details, the process of actually booking the trip and going is streamlined and the ideas turn into memorable adventures.
For a process that every business uses, onboarding is more efficient when you have a processed detailed out. Felicia’s base, Onboarding Clients, does just that, helps to streamline the process for onboarding new clients and save time.
Felicia’s ability to turn what can be an overwhelming process into something that follows natural flows is truly a talented gift. We are ecstatic that she has incorporated some of her wonderful talents into airtable where we can apply them to our daily lives.
