A Streamlined Data Entry Experience
Utilizing database technology, users can upload spreadsheet data and input and edit data from their browsers. They can also download selected, sorted data to Excel, all without technical skills or IT assistance. It allows users to edit and export their data online from anywhere using a web browser

‚ÄčTrust & Security
Foreflow keeps track of user edits – which increases trust in the data. As users access and edit data, their changes are tracked at the row and column level with old and new values. A built-in security feature limits access to tables and Data Sets based on the roles you create.

Users can create custom Data Sets that combine and transform data from multiple tables. Data Sets can be exported and made available to external systems.

App Integration
Data Sets and Tables stored in foreflow can be accessed from third party systems for reporting, dashboards, analytics, and more. This access can be via the foreflow REST API or directly from the database.
