Quick Overview of Stacker

Stacker lets you create custom business apps in a matter of minutes. It's really easy to create a fully functioning app: we'll take you through the set-up process step-by-step in this Quick Overview video.


A Quick Overview of Stacker

Stacker lets you create apps powered by your data. You can transform your spreadsheets into user-friendly tools that lets you control how you want others to interact with your information.

You simply connect to your data source and Stacker automatically creates an app for you based upon the structure of your data.

Displaying your data in Stacker

You can choose which tables are displayed on your navigation and can create nested items for different ways to visualize your data.

The list page is the equivalent of a table in your data source and shows a summary of the records.

The data is continuously synced in from your data source and so changes made there will be automatically reflected in Stacker.

Clicking an item opens up a record detail page. This transforms a single row in our spreadsheet into a beautiful and easy-to-understand view, which is much improved experienced for users interacting with your data.

As well as splitting information into separate sections on the page, we can also create tabs to make it even clearer to our users what they are reviewing.

Any changes that are made to your data will be synced back to your data source immediately. You can completely customize your app, choosing which data is included and how it is presented.

Sharing your Stacker app

When you're ready, it's really easy to share your app with those who need access.

You can invite your team directly by email, or you can choose a table from your data and instantly give access to customers, partners or teammates that are contained in that table.

Setting up Permissions in Stacker

With Stacker's permissions, it is possible to set which pages a user has access to, which records a user can see, edit and create - and more than that, which specific fields they can interact with.

With Roles you can apply different rules to different types of user. And you don't have to stop at a single app!
