Strategizing Airtable Database Structure for Financial Statement Management
This meeting involved the discussion of a complex Airtable schema to manage a financial model. The central topic was around the structuring and logic of financial statements, including balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow statements.
Key platforms mentioned include Airtable and Xano. The State Changers discussed the concept of implementing certain tables as environment variables, suggesting to move them to Airtable.
Part of the conversation revolved around the classification of assets, liabilities and equity within a balance sheet and how it could be more effectively illustrated using Airtable. The discussion emphasized the importance of structuring the data to be easily understood, and they explored the idea of structuring this through a flattened or column approach.
The meeting wrapped up with a preview of a future topic - dealing with the creation of tables in Webflow, with WeWeb suggested as a potential option. The State Changers were also intrigued by the idea of researching 'North Stars' or examples of good practice for this type of complex table creation in Webflow for their upcoming discussions.
