3 NoCode tools for fast work with data that we can recommend for your business

  • You can create your DB with NoCode tools and add unique features similar to a custom software project;
  • You don’t have to spend funds on an expensive developer to manage your data: it’s enough to use automation tools.


  • Manage the visual appearance of dashboards;
  • Create spreadsheets, calendars, galleries, kanban boards, timelines, Gantt charts;
  • Operate CRM and ERP (accounting system);
  • Use templates of spreadsheets, boards and other things: Airtable’s library contains more than 60 solutions for various tasks;
  • Connect applications to your workspace: the marketplace service has a choice of more than 200 apps;
  • Create Actions to speed up your work.


  • In E-commerce;
  • In marketing;
  • Create various scenarios for working with data and set up their launch schedules. For example, you work with Shopify and every week you need to audit stock on hand. In this case, you can set up a scheduled scenario that once a week will run to scan data in the Shopify database and then pull factual information about storage on hand into Airtable, Excel or Google Sheets;
  • Logically coming out from the above paragraph: you can keep track of stock on hand;
  • Make spreadsheets look one whole: customize formatting the fields of prices, dates and etc.;
  • Generate reports: just set up integration with Excel, Google Sheets, Shopify or other databases, automate data sorting and working with formulas, organise saving reports into a designated file;
  • Configure pulling of contacts, for example, from Shopify into Airtable for more convenient work;
  • Send automatic emails to customers from the contact database: for example, to inform them about a limited quantity of goods that customers showed interest in, about an “abandoned cart” or about a payment.


  • Create scenarios of applications’ work with the help of the visual diagrams of the following type: “If A is true, then B. If A is false, then C.” (see the diagram below). Scenarios are created and managed with the help of “objects”. (There are two types of scenarios: real-time (“on-line”) that are launched with the start of the event, and scheduled — they are launched regularly at the scheduled time: on a certain day of the week, certain date of the month or at a set time. For example, using the real-time scenario you can send emails that confirm registration, while scheduled scenarios can be used to generate reports about the number of new customers of the online store over the past month.
  • Manage data structures: logs of connected integrations and systems, passwords, e-mails, links, user sessions and etc.
  • Work with the API. They can be used to set up interactions between the back-end and the front-end, or connect the back-end with a third-party application. In Directual you can do it using Webhooks or API endpoints. With Webhooks you can set up integrations, for example, with Tilda, Webflow, Zoho Forms and others. All connections are saved in the ‘Integrations’ file and then they can be easily edited or deleted. Using API endpoints, you can manage users and their roles, database records (for example, set up filtering).
    Directual has a great tutorial video on this topic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8pNin1daBA&t=315s
  • Set up integrations with other services and connect them to scenarios. Directual database contains about 15 compatible applications. Bubble.io, Zapier, Airtable, Telegram, Facebook, Gmail and others are among them. Well, yes, if judged by the number of applications for integration, Directual loses points to Integromat but it still allows you to provide your service with all necessary functions.
