It’s a Database.
With trackers, you can maintain all the information you don’t want to forget right in MangoApps without the complicated setup of a traditional database. Just like any other database, you can do data mining to find the information that is important to your company.
It’s a Form.
MangoApps has come up with some templates that can get you going when capturing the information you want to track in MangoApps. But the possibilities are endless. Let’s say you’re a chemical company. You want to track orders and there’s no generic form that is specific enough to represent the data you’re trying to capture. Design it yourself. Ask people the atomic weight of the element… , the molarity of the acid… , the valence of the molecule… Any detail that might not be available in a standard form can be captured by a MangoApps Tracker that you design.
It’s Tabular Data.
People make mistakes or change their mind or sometimes leave off information that needs to be added later. Trackers are flexible data tables like spreadsheets that can be restructured with more columns, data can be changed or added, and with .CSV export, the data is portable to other tools that work with .CSV files.
Sure, you create your form in MangoApps. And the data submitted is ONLY available in MangoApps. But you can add the form to ANY website so that users come to make an entry on your form. The data they provide gets forwarded to MangoApps once they submit it so it’s visible by your specified MangoApps users. There’s no need to go out to some database to create a report to share with colleagues because MangoApps does it automatically.
With the RESTful Mango API, you can create and get data from Trackers. Take a look at the MangoApps Developer Website for complete information.
