# Builder experience

This section provides a detailed overview of the concepts and features that make up an Application, expanding on the topics introduced in this guide's How it Works section.

# Data tables and the Workflow apps connector

Each application has a dedicated data table that stores relevant information. For example, a PTO requests application has a corresponding PTO requests data table. The information contained in the PTO request data table forms the basis of the PTO requests application.

The Workflow apps connector enables you to integrate your applications into your workflows.

For example, you can use the New request trigger to start a workflow once a form has been submitted in an app, or the Assign task to users action to perform review/approval of a task using a custom page.

# App view and settings

App settings are available at the project level in the App tab.

This tab offers a comprehensive view of the assets that form the foundation of your Workflow App. This includes pages, data tables, and automations (recipes).

This interface provides all the tools necessary to operate your application, including the capability to establish connections between assets and your app, manage app access, and more.

See our app settings guide to learn how to set up your application.

# Pages

A Page is a UI screen for an application implemented using a WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) interface.

Pages enable you to customize the following aspects of an application.

  • How the request is submitted

  • Customize how users submit a request by configuring the Page in Application settings > Creation Page setting.

  • How the request is reviewed

  • Customize how users review requests using a Page in Assign task to users action in the Workflow apps connector.
