Understanding records in Boost.space

The content of the spaces are the records themselves. As with spaces, it always depends on the specific module, in which records are involved and what function they perform. So you can think of records basically as the rows in the Boost.space database. The limit of records indicates maximum number of records in your Boost.space platform (limits are counted across all databases). You can free-up the space by deleting old records.

Users who have access to the specific space in which the records are located can create and manage the records.

Examples of records:

Records contain all relevant information related to the module and the space in which it is located.

  1. module Products → space Product list → records Product (e.g. cola drink)
  2. module Tasks → space Todolist → records Task (e.g. update database)
  3. module Contacts → space Contact list→ records Contact (e.g. Michal Novák)

The records represent different roles in the modules, for example:

  • The Order records (module “Orders”) contains all information from the creation of an order to its successful completion;
  • The Event records (module “Calendar”) carries information about the created event, its members, and dates.

Different views on records

How records are displayed depends on different approaches according to the roles of the records.


The most common view of the records is in the form of a table in which you can filter the columns, use the filter panel, sort according to predefined designs, and much more.

Tasks – Gantt Chart & Kanban Board

These views are available within the Tasks module after clicking on the arrow under the Organize section. Gantt chart is used to display the timeline, Kanban Board is used to display the tasks as a bulletin board.

Tasks – list view

Tasks have a list view (table view) different from other modules – it can be split into two pages for more efficient work with records.
