Once you’ve got your account created, building your app on Tadabase really comes down to an easy 3 step process:
1. Building your data structure in the Data Builder
2. Designing your pages and components in the Page Builder
3. Interacting with your data via your users, custom workflows, and analytical reports

Step 1: Build
When you first sign up for Tadabase you'll be asked to choose between starting with a pre-built template app from our comprehensive library of sample apps or starting from scratch. 
If you choose to go with a template, simply choose the template you wish to work with, click Copy App, and begin customizing it to your own specific needs.
Or, if you choose to build your app from scratch, select this option and give your app a name and optional description. When you build your app from scratch, you can either import a data file that you already have by selecting Import and uploading your CSV file, or you can yet again choose to start from scratch by entering your data manually in the Data Builder. Entering your data manually from scratch requires getting to know the Data Builder and the basics of using data tables and fields, which you can master in our Navigating the Data Builder section of solution articles. 
Step 2: Design
Once you build your data structure, you can then move on to the Page Builder where you'll design how your data will appear on your app. This is where you'll customize your pages, page layouts, and components, all of which you can master in our Navigating the Page Builder section of solution articles. 
Step 3: Interact
Once you design how your data will present to your users, you can then define exactly how you want your users to interact with the data in the Users section of the builder. This includes defining your users and their roles, defining the access you want specific users to have based on their job capacities, and creating a custom workflow amongst your users with automated tasks and streamlined collaboration. With a custom automated workflow of your own design, all that's left to do is sit back and watch your users collaborate seamlessly and productivity soar on this powerful, custom app that you've built in these 3 easy steps! To master all the ways you and your users can interact with your data on your app, browse through the Working with Users section of solution articles.

Yes, you can add totals or row summaries to your tables. At this time, only tables can have totals. Simply go to 'Filters & Grouping' within the Data Table settings and add a total in Row Summaries.

While it is certainly possible to integrate your Tadabase apps with Salesforce, we do not have a built-in method of facilitating this type of integration.
We recommend utilizing API and Webhooks to facilitate integrations with external platforms. You can find additional information to help you get started here:

If you prefer to utilize a tool to facilitate your connection between Tadabase and Salesforce, we also have available integrations with Zapier and Integromat. We choose to recommend these as a second option as these options rely on the performance of the chosen tool to ensure that your integrations function as expected. Below you can find links to the Tadabase integration with these tools. As a note, I did take a moment to check on both and found that each tool has available integrations with Salesforce as well.

While we do support these solutions and can certainly help you out with questions, concerns, or issues you experience, with processes connected to external platforms, we are limited to covering the Tadabase side of the integrations.

Yes, at this time there is a limit and it varies based on the type of fields you add. If you run into any issues adding fields, please refer to our documentation on fields here for more information on how much space is allocated to each field type.

We are not a domain registrar, so we don't sell domains. To add a custom domain to your app, you must already own your domain by purchasing it via a registrar such as GoDaddy.

To delete your account, please log in to the Tadabase builder and navigate to your account profile.

We're sorry to see you go; please let us know if there's anything we can do to help by emailing support@tadabase.io.

In the near future, you will be able to restore apps on your own to a specific date/time.
