Keeping your database up to date

After setting up Data Sync, you can configure Flowdash to write Field changes to your database.

To enable updates, on the Sync Settings step, there is an Editable column for each field. Once you allow fields to be editable, we will ask for an update query.

This update query will be run when any of the editable fields are modified.

Please be careful to scope the update query by using the Unique ID column.

Update requires the user in the data source to have write access to the table

After setting this up, keeping your database and Flowdash is all done behind the scenes. If you want to edit a field that is synced from your database, all you have to do is Edit and change the field on the Details Table.

We will always issue the update query and ensure the changes have been committed before showing the update within Flowdash.
