Databases in Pipefy

Databases are data repositories that can be customized to store structured information through records.

Each database can store huge amounts of standardized records. It is possible to see all your connecting records (via connection fields located in their pipes) and access them rapidly.

You can connect databases to pipes through connection fields to quickly access records in processes you manage in Pipefy. Learn how to connect a pipe and a database.

Get inspired:

  • Recruiting: Create a database for each of your company's available job opportunities, storing information for the people who applied. You’ll have a custom-built talent pool to consult when hiring begins for those positions.

  • Procurement: Create databases to record vendors with general or specific data. You can also create a database to control the cost of access through start forms.

  • IT: Create a team member database to accelerate ticket openings and know exactly who needs your team’s help. Create a database to manage services and software your company uses.

Like pipes, databases have start forms to create structured records. Learn how to create and set up start forms.

You can also share database start forms to create records through public forms. Learn how to share forms.

Instead of creating records manually, you can import data from a spreadsheet to a database. Learn how to import records to Pipefy.

💡 Tip: If you want to manage information and data in a spreadsheet using other software, you can extract that data and import it into your databases using Importer (a native app of Pipefy), our public API, or in Pipefy Connector (customized integration).
