We’re excited to release our biggest update ever to Basedash. We’re introducing two new major features, along with many other smaller features and improvements.
We made a quick 5 minute video showing off the full process of building an internal app with actions.
We’re also live on Product Hunt with these changes, join the discussion here: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/basedash-apps-actions
Apps are a new way to organize your views + queries. Each app can have its own set of members, so you can create one for each team in your company. You can also create sections within apps to organize your pages further.
With apps, we’re now letting different teams within the same company work together, while still providing robust permissioning and access controls. Some ideas of apps that you can create:
With actions, for the first time, we’re expanding Basedash beyond the database.
You can create actions to integrate with any third-party service with an API. You and your teammates can trigger actions to call an API (either internal or external) with the click of a button. Actions can also be triggered on database records, allowing you to take action directly on your data.
Before creating an action, you need to create a connection to an API. We have some templates for common third-party APIs, but you can always add your own.
Some ideas of what you can do with actions:
We’ve updated our pricing to remove the limit on number of members and number of connections. You’re now free to add as many members as you’d like on any plan, including the free plan.

You can add sections to further organize your apps. Sections contain pages, and show up in the sidebar so you can easily find the page you’re looking for.
We added a new layout type that only allows users to create new records in a database table. When this layout is selected, all other layouts will be disabled for that collection page (to prevent viewing and editing of existing data).
You can now explicitly set a display image on your collection pages. This image shows up in both list and card layouts, as well as in the record details panel. This is incredibly useful for data that revolves around images, such as users, products, properties, or companies.
You can now set a description on a collection page, which will show up in the record details panel when no records are selected. You can use this to describe how a collection page should be used by users.
You can now set certain permissions directly on a collection page:
These are all enabled by default, but you can disable them by editing a collection page and navigating to the “Info” tab.
You can now search for pages directly from the sidebar. Just hit ‘/’ and start typing to filter items in the sidebar.
