One challenge many businesses may face is the ability to add database-driven functionality to their website. And the challenge comes two-fold; web applications such as searchable databases not only need a user-friendly interface for the front-end, but more importantly, they also require a database to be connected to the back-end for easy data capturing, storage, and updates. Traditionally, accomplishing the latter would only be possible through server-side programming such as PHP, ASPX, or ASP, with the help from a web developer.
Designed with tech-savvy business users in mind, Caspio provides an all-in-one platform for Yola users to build database-driven applications using point-and-click wizards instead of coding. With a centralized cloud database built into the platform, every Caspio-powered application is database-driven, which helps users streamline the entire process of app building and data management.
Yola users can easily add smart database-driven functionality such as submission forms, search interfaces, login pages, feedback systems, and more.
Some of the most popular examples include:
- Publicly searchable databases and directories
- Submission forms to capture leads and inquiries
- Feedback forms, online surveys, and registration forms
- Data visualization using calendars, charts, and Google maps
Deploying an application on your Yola website is fast and easy. Once you finish creating an app, say a web form, all you need to do is drag-and-and drop the HTML widget wherever you’d like it to be placed on your website, and simply copy-and-paste a snippet of code within your widget. Voila! Your web form has been created in no time.
Here’s a video that shows how you can create a searchable contacts database and embed it on a Yola website in just 5 minutes:
