I am presently using Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel on SharePoint so that I can share stored data and allow data input with users. I need to add simpler input forms, process documentation, attachments, analytics-light and storage as well. I also would like to have mobile data input and retrieval. Retool seems to offer what I need and as there will be less than 10 users, the pricing seems affordable.

I'm looking for any recommendations of this or alternate software.

Thank you

I'm standing up a web app that needs functionality, including profiles, directory, scheduling, video meeting, and payments.

I considered Wix, but I'm not sure it will meet these needs. I'm interested in no code / low code tools in order to move quickly but struggling to navigate through all the options. Any advice on how to select no code / low code tools like Webflow, Bubble, stackbit, Retool, BaseDash, Glide , airkit, adalo, stacker, unqork, tiled, airtable, zapier, v.one, candu, bravo studio, amazon honeycode, unstack, dittofi, makerpad, softr, appsheet, etc.?
