Welcome to BuiltOnAir, a podcast and video series about all things Airtable. Each episode, we talk with someone active in the Airtable community to discuss their experiences and showcase an interesting way they’ve used Airtable in their work.

In today’s episode, we speak with Jordan Walker; product designer and start-up founder of an exciting new app, YAC Chat. Jordan is a partner at SoFriendly, an entrepreneurial design team in Orlando, and has worked with businesses and startups from large to small to help them create experience-driven products with his designs.

After noticing how much time his team at SoFriendly was spending simply trying to schedule a meeting, Jordan was wishing for an easier way to communicate. Thus, YAC Chat was born. In a world where emails and texts have virtually replaced the phone call, YAC Chat is shaking things up again by emphasizing the power of spoken communication. The app conveniently sits on your desktop or smartphone and allows you to quickly record and send a voice snippet to your colleagues.

Jordan says the time it has saved their team is invaluable, and other businesses are noticing. You can now request access to try it out at yac.chat with a free or pro plan. Check out the show notes for links.

Jordan and his team utilize Airtable for most of their day-to-day operations: investors, user lists, development hours, and more. Today, Jordan shares with us a sample of his development hours tracker, where he can track task assignments and the time spent for each. By using the single-select field for his task names, the base looks beautifully laid out, complete with a splash of color. He also makes use of Airtable’s Form View to capture weekly assessments from his team; allowing him to gauge what tasks are taking the longest and least amounts of time.
