Today, we’re introducing a new option to store and manage data for your Actioner apps: an Actioner-hosted database, which comes with a spreadsheet interface to update the database schema and manage your data.
Actioner database allows you to create data stores to save, edit, access, and share the data needed to run your apps. When your app needs somewhere to store data, whether it’s for caching purposes or long term storage, the best place to do this is in an Actioner database. Starting by today, you can build fast, secure and scalable apps with Actioner Database.
Building Slack apps should be fast and easy, regardless of whether you have any data storage available. But what happens in reality is, if you need to go beyond simple use cases, data storage becomes a necessity. Without data storage, your data is typically scattered across multiple lightweight tools and duplicate spreadsheets. Eventually, you need to consolidate that data to find the hindered insights and relationships within, and to learn more from it. In that case, you’d either go with a traditional database or use some spreadsheet solution for consolidating the data. The problem with traditional databases is, you need developers to be able to use them, which makes the solution very costly and that’s the reason why a lot of teams turn to spreadsheets instead. Unfortunately, spreadsheets like Google Sheets can be just as painful as they typically lack the ability to support complex automation and business logic.
Today, we’re introducing a dead-simple no-code database built into Actioner to solve this problem. You can get right to building apps by simply adding your data, connecting to your workflows and apps, and sharing with your collaborators.
With Actioner Database, you can:
Actioner Database is fully managed by our cloud provider. Data is encrypted in transit and at rest. Actioner uses multiple levels of redundancy, which include continual backups of all data. If you have any questions or would like to know more, please get in touch.
