A Data Source is a data table of information that can be injected as a field into a form. Common examples of data sources include materials, machines, departments, customers and locations, shifts, and so on. Essentially any commonly used database can be added to your app as a data source.
- A common data source is app users. By adding a “User Lookup” field to a form for assignment purposes, the auto-complete field automatically calls upon the list of active app users as selection options.
- Data sources can be maintained manually by adding, modifying or removing them within the app. They can also be managed through an API.
