Get to know Zengine

With that done, you'll see your app's interface, which at first is just a blank screen with a tab for your new form's data. Add a form entry, filling in every field, and then you'll see the entry in a spreadsheet-like row with the fields you need to see front and center. You can then select an item you've added to your app to view or edit it. There, you'll notice a new sidebar that lists connected entries from other forms, related events and tasks, and a list of everything that's happened to this item to see old changes.

The connected entries gives you an easy way to link your form entries and make your application more powerful. Say your project management tool also needs to show project milestones. You could make a new form to fill in milestone info, and include an option to link milestones to projects. Then, when you're looking at a project, you'll see the relevant milestones you should be working towards.

The tasks and dates sidebar sections give you an extra way to manage your data across apps. As you build apps for your team, it'd be easy for stuff to get lost in one app if you spend more time in another. Zengine includes a global dashboard that shows a list of all of your apps, along with the tasks, events, and updates from all of your applications in one place. Or, in each app, you can see just the tasks and events for that application, to drill down and see tasks attached to every item.

Need a way to find stuff in your app easier? Just drag a column to the top of your Zengine app view, and it'll sort and filter the data based on that item. You can build your own more advanced filters to show specific items, or use the Plugin Marketplace to add extra tools to your Zengine account. There's kanban board views, approval workflows, automated email tools, and much more to make your apps as powerful and customized as you need.

Sometimes, there's no pre-made app that fits your needs perfectly. With Wizehive, you can often get pre-made process-ready forms to fit what you need—or with Zengine, you can instead build an app that works just like you need, with little more work than making a form.
