Create Table

A table can only be created inside the scope of a project.

Navigate to the Tables section of a project and use the plus button to add or create a new table.

To create a table one must provide a unique name for the table.

Note that a primary key is the main unique identifier for each record in a table. The primary key has a similar role to the row number in a conventional spreadsheet. Most users should preferably name the column "id" or "row" and leave the other default settings as is.

Advanced users can opt for a more complicated primary key convention. Using text strings and toggling auto-increment off is also a perfectly valid approach. However, it is impossible to add a record with a primary key that already exists in the table. This can make data entry and data collection from various sources more complicated. Use custom primary keys with caution.
