The builder interface gives you access to builder tools to help you create the structure and properties of a Smartabase site. You can mainly achieve this using the event form, profile form, database form and dashboard builder tools. Using these tools effectively is essential for a successful Smartabase site.
Some of the tools are simple to use (for example, performance standards and performance explanations) and how they are used is described in a single article. The event form, profile form, database form and dashboard builder tools are each described in their own series.
Your Smartabase administrator is responsible for making sure that you've got the right information to log into Smartabase - your site URL and username. You'll also need to know your password.
The URL for accessing the builder interface follows this format:
Access to the builder interface is controlled by Fusion Sport, who can assign builder (and administrator) access permission to authorized user accounts.
With access to the builder tools, you are able to make and implement decisions that affect data protection and privacy. It is critical that you take data protection and privacy considerations into account when designing, creating and maintaining a Smartabase site.
The sections below briefly describe the purpose of each of the site builder's homepage tools.
Edit application theme
This tool was previously used to edit the theme (e.g. the colors, logo and images) of the Smartabase application. It is now obsolete and has been replaced by better options, such as site-wide CSS and CSS for page layouts.
Used to build event forms. Event forms collect and store chronological records with information about people.
Used to build database forms. Database forms collect and store data which can be used to fill out a database field in an event form. For example, a strength database may contain hundreds of exercises, each of which can have additional information about the exercise. A food database could contain macro and micro-nutrient values for thousands of food items.
Used to build profile forms. Profile forms collect and store data about people that is not tracked over time and is not date sensitive. Profile forms can only be updated to current values and no record of previous values is kept.
Related entity forms
Used to build related entity forms. Related entity forms collect and store data which can be used to fill out a related entity field in a scheduling or appointment form.
Used to build, edit and apply performance standards. Performance standards are a means of giving instant visual feedback to people by applying different colors to data entered for numbers and options depending on what criteria is matched. This concept is similar to conditional formatting used by MS Excel.
Used to build, edit and apply performance explanations. Performance explanations are a means of giving instant textual feedback to people. Their purpose and function is essentially the same as that of a performance standard except that instead of applying a color to a field depending on what is entered by the person, the performance explanation is shown immediately after the event form is saved.
Performance summary reports set up
Used to build performance summary reports for performance summary dashboards. A performance summary report is a selection of important metrics from multiple event forms displayed as a table.
Used by Fusion Sport consultants to create or install pre-built tools of event, profile and database forms, performance standards and performance explanations.
Used to create a specification for data entered in the Smartabase application.
This is used to create templates for styling and formatting embedded charts.
The dashboard builder is used to create and edit dashboards.
