An application is built by an app owner to collect data from users. One application can include different type of components, like approval forms, data lists, document libraries and dashboards etc.

Yeeflow allows you to create custom applications on your own without any prior coding experience or IT expertise.

You can custom apps for different business verticals (Order Management, Sales Management, Project and Task Management, Supplier and Vendor Relationship Management, Procurement, Inventory Management, Accounting and Billing, Admin and HR Management).


About Content List

Content list is a repository to store your business data. There are 3 types of content list in each application:

Data List - the data list is like a database to store the structured data. You can create multitype fields, sort and filter data, design the list forms or create the list workflows etc. You can create different types of data views for each data list based on the purposes on how to display your list data.

Calendar - a calendar list is used to manage your data in a calendar view. It's also able to connect to other content list to display all data in one Calendar. 

Document Library - a document library is used to store and manage documents with folders.


You can connect content lists with online forms as the data source. Like you have a content list to store your products. Then you can use the lookup / lookup list control on your form to allow users to select products from the content list.

Use the content list control to connect with a content list to display data on your form. You can also use the "Set Content List" action in the workflow designer to add/update/delete your content list data. For more information about how to do the configuration, please refer: Configure Set Content List Action

About Dashboard

You can use the content list to collect data, but there are various volatile aspects of your business that can impact its overall performance. It is much more convenient to collect and access all this data in one place, rather switch between multiple locations. Dashboard help you achieve this objective. Using pages, you can aggregate and extract values from the data collected, convert it into manageable chunks of visual information, and access a detailed overview of your business, all on a single screen.


Dashboard are visually intuitive. They present information in various views including graphs, buttons, panels, forms, reports, embedded links, etc. You can create custom screens for data collected from various sources to display complex data. 

Blocks are the configurable parts which can be easily added to the Dashboard. There are many blocks you can use on the dashboard pages
