Fieldbook users, customers, and fans,
We’re sad to announce that Fieldbook is shutting down.
Our last day online will be Friday, June 15, 2018. After that, Fieldbook won’t be available, either on the web or via API, and any content in it will no longer be accessible.
We know that some of you have come to rely on us heavily, and that transitioning won’t be easy. We’re committed to making this as good an experience as is possible under the circumstances.
Fieldbook is free for all users effective immediately. …
Fieldbook is an information tool that lets anyone create a database, as easily as a spreadsheet. Our aim has always been to be more user-friendly than any database and more developer-friendly than any spreadsheet. Today we just got a lot more developer-friendly, with the launch of Fieldbook Codelets.
A codelet is a snippet of code you upload to a Fieldbook that creates a new API endpoint for the book. You can send HTTP requests to this endpoint, and your code generates the response.

Data Analysis & Results, Inc. is a project management and operations consulting firm founded in 1985. For the last several months, their distributed sales team has been using Fieldbook to track leads and coordinate.

Continuum Analytics provides data management and analytics tools to help people “discover, analyze, and collaborate by connecting their curiosity and experience with any data.”
We talked to Jeanie McClellen, who is responsible for tracking team member availability and assignments for their professional services work:
Continuum needed a better way to track their professional services work. “Previously, we were in a massive Excel spreadsheet,” said Jeanie. “When you updated one sheet, you’d have to update several others as well, or it wasn’t consistent. You never knew if you were looking at the most up-to-date information.”
In Fieldbook, they can easily track clients, employees, and assignments. It’s also easy for them to create reports that total hours by employee, by client or by project. “We’re able to distribute these to the project managment team and the whole staff, so they can see who’s working on what and for how many hours each week.” …
