In essence, a Table is a simple database. You can add data to a Table with an action flow to send data to the table. This works similarly to the integrations we support for Hubspot and GoogleSheets. A Table is available on the workspace level. Therefore it can be used in multiple calculators within a workspace.
The ability to write data and its availability outside a calculator differentiates a Table from a Datasheet.
A Table makes it possible to store submission data from Calculator A, and after submission, show the results in Calculator B. Enabling relatively easy PDF-like outputs or even dashboards.
In our tables, the following data types are implemented:
Note: when your number element has a prefix or postfix like $ or "per month", it becomes a string (text) instead of a number. If you need to send a number to the table, turn it into a variable first.
New data types will be added over time.
- click the + button on the right hand side of the table to add a column
- click the + button on the bottom left hand side of the table, or by pressing enter in a table field to add a row.
- hover over the row number and press the garbage bin to delete a row
- hover over the column head to edit or delete a column. You can update the column type and the name.
Writing data to a table works in a similar way to our GoogleSheets and Hubspot integrations. In your calculator, navigate to settings/connect/table and toggle “Sync data to table”. You can then select the table and sync the calculator and table columns.
