FAQ


General

Matrify is a database management system for the web. A database is a collection of information that belongs together, e.g. you can use it to organize a list of action items, customers, products or some other kind of information. Matrify makes it easy to manage your data only by using your browser and work on it together with your team.
Matrify is easier to use. You only need to create a table and define columns. Features like searching, sorting, filtering are always available. Matrify supports you by e.g. automatically numbering records, setting creation/modification-timestamps and so on. You can also manage multi-line text, images, videos, audio, single- and multiple-choices and more. When entering new records a user will be guided by dialogs. You can easily mess up a spreadsheet, but with Matrify it's almost impossible to mess up a table.
All kinds of corporations, organizations or private users can use Matrify to manage their information.
You can manage any kind of information that you can store in lists, tables or spreadsheets.
If spreadsheets work fine for you then you should use it. But usually if there are many records and data gets more complex you will see its limits. With Matrify you can for example manage users and rights, keep data consistent with validation conditions, constraints and links. You can see which record was changed by whom and when. And there are many more useful features. To put it simple: spreadsheets are for calculation and Matrify is for organizing information.
