Data models, forms, queries & reports

In this section, we will go through all of the features & considerations that you need to make to properly setup & manage the database for your Dittofi application. There are four essential topics that we cover:



Data models

Data models are essentially a collection of data that is organized into many connected lists or tables. This puts data models at the heart of any database, since this is where your data is stored.


Forms are a way that you or one of your customers can enter data into one of your data models in Dittofi.


Queries give you a way to search for & compile data from one or more of your data models. Running a query is like asking a detailed question of your database, or doing an advanced search on the internet.


Reports give you a way to present your data from any query that runs.
