The Power of Objects

From AgileApps Support Wiki

About Objects


Objects lie at the core of a data model. They define the primary information structure, with rows and columns of data (like a spreadsheet), but they also contain many additional capacities that support nimble applications:


  • Display custom forms for manual data entry
  • Present data as charts, graphs, tables for display or print
  • Display dashboards: high-level status updates in real-time


  • Interface to external systems (import/export)
  • Model business policies/rules/processes that match the needs of your organization
  • Validate data for improved accuracy
  • Improve staff time management with email notifications and task-based activities via an integrated calendaring system
  • Build data relationships


  • Define security permissions and access control for users/teams/roles
  • Manage mass data operations
  • Monitor activity and change logs
  • Design data entry forms, views and reports that are personalized to the needs of the users/teams/roles


  • Use the web browser-based IDE to design objects and applications
  • Design fully customized objects and applications with the APIs and Web Services tools
  • Design a UI to coordinate with organizational style guides

About Object Relationships

Objects are powerful in an of themselves, but they derive even greater power from the Object Relationships you can create to tie them together--most notably because the platform automatically creates the dialogs that are used to select records from a referenced object.
