HubDB is a valuable tool for managing data. Essentially, HubDB allows you to create tables that can store information in a way that is similar to a spreadsheet—with rows, columns, and cells.
The beauty of this tool is that you can customize the table to suit your specific needs. For example, you can use a HubDB table to store feedback from an external mechanism, which you can then access at a later time. Additionally, if you're using CMS Hub Professional or Enterprise, you can use HubDB to store structured data that can be used to create dynamic CMS pages.
How can your business benefit from HubDB? Here are 3 creative ways to utilize the tool!
1. Display a product catalog or services catalog using dynamic pages from Hubdb
One of the most significant benefits of using Hubdb is that we can quickly import a client's spreadsheet with product information and display it in a user-friendly interface. By leveraging Hubdb's dynamic pages, we can provide clients with a seamless experience where they can easily navigate and filter products by topics, tags, features, and more.
Additionally, clicking on a product can redirect to a detail page that displays full information about the product. This way, clients can easily explore the products and services on offer and make informed decisions.
2. Showcase your organization’s team members using Hubdb
Another great use case of Hubdb is that we can showcase the team members of the whole organization in a single place. By filtering team members by role, skills, and other attributes, we can help clients quickly find the relevant team member they need. This is particularly useful for companies with large teams or those that operate in multiple locations.
With Hubdb, we can create a comprehensive directory of team members that is easy to access and navigate.
3. Using multilevel dynamic pages with Hubdb to manage large amounts of information.
Another useful feature of Hubdb is that we can use multilevel dynamic pages to manage large amounts of information.
By nesting child tables into a parent Hubdb, we can create up to five levels of pages within one dynamic template. Each dynamic page includes its unique URL, allowing us to display information based on specific conditions such as an URL path, a specific filter, or a specific search.
This is particularly helpful when dealing with vast amounts of data, as it allows us to display information only if it meets certain conditions. Each dynamic page includes its own unique, SEO-friendly URL, and offers page-specific analytics.
HubDB is an incredibly useful tool for managing data and can be customized to meet the specific needs of your business. With HubDB, you can display product catalogs or team member directories using dynamic pages and multilevel dynamic pages. With these features, you can provide clients with a seamless experience where they can easily navigate and filter information. HubDB's unique URL structure offers page-specific analytics, making it easier to manage and analyze data.
