RecordsManager 2.0

RecordsManager is a no-code solution for creating custom database apps in MobileTogether Designer using an intuitive, purely visual design interface. One of the biggest advantages of RecordsManager is that app creators don’t need to build the database backend themselves. This saves an incredible amount of time and work and allows system administrators or developers of all skill levels to easily create effective apps.

New features include:

  • Major scripting extensions – the visual scripting editor lets app administrators define sophisticated app behavior in response to user input
  • New “User” field type – makes it possible to note which user created or modified a record, who is responsible for reviewing it, etc.
  • Hierarchical user groups – make roles assignments easier for firms where users belong to multiple groups (e.g., office, department, management team, etc.)
  • And many more
