Table Sharing

Introduction

Easybase's data tables are designed for real-time collaboration.

At a high level, there are three primary ways that your table data can be altered:

  1. By yourself, in the Easybase application
  2. By others you have invited to your Easybase table, either via link or directly
  3. External applications you have integrated your tables into with a project

In any of these three situations, all changes will be immediately synchronized in Easybase to yourself and all other instances.

tip

This collaboration is specifically designed to be effective in various use-cases. For example:

  1. Custom software developers, whether they be freelancers or agencies, can use this shareability to interface directly with their clients who benefit from the low-code data management.
  2. Developers can speed up interactions with non-technical team members who benefit from access to a low-code data management interface.

To bring up the table sharing dialog, click the blue Share button in the bottom-left corner of any Easybase table.

Easybase's link sharing works similar to that of a Google Doc. For example, you use the top right checkbox that says Viewer to control the permissions. Viewer means that visitors cannot edit the table, while Editor means visitors can edit the table.

Each active user will be displayed as an icon in the bottom-left corner of the table.

note

If you enable the password field in the link-sharing interface, visitors will be presented with a required password dialog before they can view or edit the table.

Direct Invites

Direct invitations work similar to link invitations, with the added ability to manage table membership.

Instead of simply sharing a link, direct invites go right to the invitee's email. Upon the invitee's first table access, they will set their own username [and password if configured].

Permissions work the same with direct invites as they do with link sharing.

Visitor Perspective

The invitee will receive an email that will contain a unique, persistent link they can use to access your table at any time.
