Item View

This section explains how to display data from the database.

In Hexabase, each piece of data in the database is called an "item". One horizontal row of the table is an item. Corresponds to a general RDB record.

Also, the "item" column is called "field" or "項目".

Menus that operate "items" are called "actions."

Data list

Hexabase can maintain data using database views.

For that purpose, Hexabase has three views: "table view", "board view", and "grid view".

You can switch between these three views with the buttons below the application bar.

※ To use "Board view" and "Grid view", it is necessary to enable the corresponding view in the database'sbasic settings.

Board view

Board view is a view that organizes items by status and can be used as a task management tool.

In Hexabase, if there is a field called "Status" in the database, it can automatically be used as a workflow step name. And in board view, you can see the progress by status.
