Unlike a spreadsheet, Airtable fields (columns) have specific "types" that allow you to store rich content in each record. For example, a table can contain records (rows) with attachments, long text notes, checkboxes, and links to records in another table.

Here's a brief overview of each field type you can use to make the perfect table for your use case:

- Link to another record

- Single line text

- Long text

- Attachment

- Checkbox

- Single select

- Multiple select

- Collaborator

- Date (and time)

- Duration

- Phone number

- Email


- Number

- Currency

- Percent

- Rating

- Formula/Rollup/Lookup/Count

- Created Time

- Autonumber

- Barcode
