This article is part of a series exploring the features of our new version of Stacker. If you've not read the original post, click here to read it.
Businesses rely on numerous tools and types of data to run their processes. Managing these different entities in tandem is time-consuming and overwhelming for non-technical team members.
You can now unite all your data in a single place and use it to create your apps – and you can even create links between records from completely different sources, giving you a holistic overview of your customers, clients or projects.
Unite different Data Sources
Bring together all the data you use across your business into a single place and use it to create your apps.
Stacker apps can now be powered by multiple data sources, which menas you can create a single app connected to many Airtable bases or Google Sheets.
In addition to spreadsheets like Airtable and Google Sheets, Stacker now supports connecting data from your favourite products like Stripe, Intercom and Salesforce as well as SQL databases.
You can bring in information from these different sources and see them side-by-side, meaning the days of switching between tools are over.
New data connectors are currently available in beta - if you would like to test it out today then please contact the support team.
Data is more useful when it's connected
Stacker now allows you to create links between records from different sources.
This means that you can click into a customer record from your Airtable and see all the linked records from other data sources, like recent conversations from Intercom, or the total amount of payments they've made in Stripe.
Once you've linked two records, you can also pull in information from one record to the other. You can create lookups which would let you display the assignee's department on the task record; and rollups, which would allow you to show the grand total of all invoice line items on an invoice record.
All the new Data functionality:
- Multiple data sources within a single app
- New data types including Stripe, Intercom, Salesforce and SQL databases
- Display data from different sources side-by-side within an app
- Create links between records
- Create lookup and roll-up fields directly in Stacker
