After reading this article you will know:
- What the back office module is
- What it is used for in your application
- What functionality and features it contains
The different parts (sometimes also referred as user interfaces) in your application are called Modules. The back office module is the part of the application where you can administer your data.
What is the back office used for?
The back office module is used to administer your data that you have defined in the data model of your application. This module with its user interface is built and designed largely by us. Why? Because the back office is often seen and used by your internal application users only. The speed of development counts in this part. Every application you build on the Betty Blocks platform has a back office module.
What do I have in the back office?
We largely built and designed the back office. As a result, that your back office module already consists of different features and functionality:
- Views (grids, dashboards, etc.). Displays the model data.
- Forms. Displays a single object in a model.
- Create, read (show), update, and delete data.
- Filter through your data.
- Search through your data.
- Authorization by a role-based structure.
- Import batched data into models.
- Export data from models.
- Back end login.
- App logic as actions to process data.
