How to use Gridfox
Gridfox is made up of lots of Projects.
Projects are made up of Tables, Records, and Views:
Projects – Projects are what you build and use in Gridfox – your own custom apps.
Tables – Tables are where your information is stored in your Project. They are similar to worksheets in a spreadsheet, but with the ability to create relationships between them.
Records – A Record is an individual item and row in your Table, similar to a row in a spreadsheet.
Views – Views are the different pages that are used to access the Table and Record information. There are different Views available, including: Grids, Boards, Calendars, Gantt Charts, Dashboards, as well as Custom Views for specific use-cases.
Project Admins create and configure the Projects you will see as a user.
Within a Project you’ll be able to create, update and delete Records using the available Views.
The level at which you’re able to create, update and delete Records will be set by your Project Admins using Permissions.
Within your Gridfox account you’ll also be able to create your own Projects where you can build Tables and Views, create Workflows and manage Permissions. For more support on this, head over to our separate support section on ‘Building a Gridfox Project’.
