The No-Code Tool of the Week: Softr

If you use Airtable, Hubspot, Google Sheets, or SmartSuite, you should also be using Softr.

Especially if you enjoy making life easier for yourself with custom apps, client portals, and internal tools 💁

Considered one of the easiest beginner-level no-code app builders, Softr takes your own data (from Airtable, Hubspot, Google Sheets, or SmartSuite) and turns it into whatever you need to streamline your work: project management apps, inventory managers, team intranets,  client pages, and so much more.

Users love Softr for its straightforward building process, including:

👉Pre-built and functional blocks like Lists, Charts, Forms, Tables, Calendar, & Maps

👉Easy to define granular permissions to securely store all data

👉Publication and sharing access across any device

👉Plenty of integrations with Zapier, Google Analytics, Stripe, Hotjar, Mailchimp, & more

👉Hundreds of pre-built templates you can customize to your needs

It only takes about 30 minutes to launch your first app and a couple hours to master the features. But don’t let its simplicity fool you – MIT, Harvard Business School, Universal Music Group, and Google are all Softr clients 👏

Can’t get enough AI these days? You’ll love Softr’s brand new AI App Generator, too 👀
