foreflow Author Screenshots

Here are some examples of the foreflow Author module user interface. This first screenshot shows a table that was created from a user file. Once a user uploads a spreadsheet or CSV file, a table is created with proper data types for each column. Users may then access the table online and edit it by adding or editing rows in the table. All user changes are tracked. Tables are also secured with a variety of rights such as read-only. Users may update (append) or replace data in the table with new spreadsheet files.

When a user adds a new row to a foreflow table, predefined validations can be applied to ensure that user data is complete and as accurate as possible. These validations also apply to future uploads of files that append data to the table.

When a user wants to upload data to foreflow table, there is an option to append the data from the upload file or replace the data in the table. These options are security rights and can be restricted for certain users.
