Private data lists are lists of data that exist securely on the server, which you are allowed to refer to in your forms logic without requiring any programming experience.
Your forms can securely add or remove values from these private lists, or search for specific values in these lists during submission in order to determine whether the form submission can continue.
With Private Data Lists you can be assured that the data is processed on the server-side in the cloud. This is essential for all business-critical operations where exposure or tampering of reference data by technical end users is not an option.
You are only limited by your imagination but here are some examples of what you can achieve with Private Data Lists:
- Create "Product Registration" forms, that securely refer to a private list of product activation codes in your data list:
- To determine whether or not a valid product registration code has been supplied by the user
- To determine whether or not a registration code has previously already been registered
- Create "Inventory Management" forms, that securely refer to a private list of inventory in your data list:
- To add or remove from a list of inventory stock
- To determine whether or not a product is available in a list of stock
- Create "Venue Booking" forms, that securely refer to a private list of available "Seats":
- To add or remove from a list of available seats
- To determine whether or not a particular seat is still available
- Create "Appointment Booking" forms, that securely refer to a private list of available "Time Slots":
- To add or remove from a list of available time slots
- To determine whether or not a particular time slot is still available
Multiple forms can be used together in a workflow using a shared private datalist to streamline business processes. For example, you may have a login-protected "Hotel Discharge Form" used by internal staff which adds a room number back onto a private data list to make it available for booking again on a separate "Hotel Booking" form which is used by customers.
