All Hypertable Features


Hypertable has a number of core systems. These sections describe the features and usage of each system. For how-to guides describing how to combine these features for certain applications, please see the how-to guides.

Authentication »

Users can sign up to Hypertable and log in using their email address and a password. User email addresses and passwords can be updated at any time.

Collections »

Collections define how your data is stored in Hypertable. Collections are like "tables" in a database or spreadsheet, and Fields are like the "columns" in a table. The Records in a Collection are then like the "rows" in a table.

Collections can also trigger certain actions when Records are updated, enabling customisable workflows and automations.

Command Palette »

The Command Palette provides an easy way to perform common actions and access common settings with a single key press.

Custom Functions »

Custom Functions enable users to create their own workflows and automations using custom logic.

Custom Functions can also be scheduled to run at certain times and intervals, and integrate with other system using webhooks.

Fields »

Fields define how data in stored in Records. Hypertable provides a range of types of Field used to store data in Records, with different formatting options and controls to interact with the stored data.

Help »

Hypertable includes built-in Help and links to relevant documentation. This helps newcomers get started, and gives experienced users easy access to details of advanced features.

Joins »

Joins define links between two Collections. Using Joins, Records can be linked to one or more related Records in another Collection. Joins also define controls available to the user to edit the relations between Records. Joins enable one-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to many relations.

Permissions »

Members of Workspaces can be assigned one of a number of Roles. Roles determine which actions a User can perform, and which settings the can modify.

Projects »

Projects contain your Collections, Views, Records, Custom Functions, etc.

Projects contain related data. Collections within Projects can easily reference each other, while Collections in different Projects within the same workspace can only reference each other remotely.

See the list of Project Templates for some ideas about how to use Projects.

Records »

Records contain all your data. Fields define how the data in Records is stored, and what controls are provided to interact with the values.

User Accounts »

All Users have an Account to access Hypertable. User Accounts can be associated with any number of Workspaces.

A User can sign up for a new Account on Hypertable Cloud for free.

Views »

Views enable data in Collections to be displayed and interacted with. There are a number of types of View available in Hypertable, each with their own features. Views are contained in Projects, and any number of Views can be created in a single Project.

Workspaces »

Workspaces are used to group Projects and share them between collaborators. Workspaces also determine how billing is calculated for Hypertable Cloud.
