How to Create a Live Dashboards with Airtable and React

Reporting and visualizing data is crucial to businesses of all sizes. Dashboards allow users to efficiently access and use this data for a range of business operations. In this article, Toptal Full-stack Engineer Dylan Golow demonstrates how he created a powerful dashboard for telemedicine using Airtable, Typeform, and React.

Whether a company is a large enterprise or a budding startup, collecting data from users and customers, and reporting on or visualizing that data is crucial to the business.

I recently worked with a telemedicine startup based in Brazil. Its mission is to provide remote care and monitoring by connecting patients to medical professionals and health coaches. The core need was to create an interface for the coaches and health professionals to easily review a patient’s information and most important metrics related to their particular situation: a dashboard.

Enter Typeform and Airtable.

Typeform

Typeform is one of the go-to data collection tools that enables responsive web experiences for users completing a survey. It also comes with several features that make surveys more intelligent, especially when combined:

  • Logic Jumps
  • Hidden Fields

Surveys can be shared via URLs that can be pre-seeded with values for the hidden fields, which can then be used to implement logic jumps and alter the behavior of the survey for the user with the link.

Airtable Uses

Airtable is a spreadsheet-database hybrid and a collaborative cloud platform. Its focus on point and click functionality means that non-technical users can configure it without coding. Airtable has a multitude of use cases in any business or project.

You can use an Airtable Base for:

  • CRM (Client Relationship Management)
  • HRIS (Human Resources Information System)
  • Project Management
  • Content Planning
  • Event Planning
  • User Feedback

There are many more potential use cases. You can explore Airtable case studies here.

If you are not familiar with Airtable, the conceptual data model breaks down like this:

  • Workspace - Composed of Bases
  • Base - Composed of Tables
  • Table - Composed of Fields (columns) and rows
  • View - A perspective on Table data with optional filters and reduced Fields
  • Field - A column of a Table with a Field Type; see here for more information on Field Types

Apart from providing a cloud-hosted database with familiar spreadsheet features, here are some of the reasons the platform is so powerful:

 

Depiction of technical and non-technical users working with Airtable.

 

For non-technical users, Airtable provides:

  • An easy to use front-end interface
  • Automations that can be created with point-and-click configuration to send emails, process rows of data, schedule appointments in calendars, and more
  • Multiple types of views that allow teams to collaborate on the same Base and tables
  • Airtable Apps that can be installed from the marketplace to supercharge a Base

For developers, Airtable provides:

  • A well-documented back-end API
  • A scripting environment that allows developers to automate actions within a Base
  • Automations that can also trigger custom developed scripts that run within the Airtable environment, extending the capabilities of automations

You can learn more on Airtable here.

Getting Started: Typeform to Airtable

Typeform surveys were already configured by the client, and the next step was to plan how that data would land in Airtable and then be turned into a dashboard. There are many questions to consider when creating dashboards on top of any database: How should we structure the data? What data will need to be processed prior to visualization? Should we sync the Base with Google Sheets and use Google Data Studio? Should we export and find another third-party tool?

Fortunately for developers, not only does Airtable provide automations and scripting to handle the data processing steps, but it has also made it possible to build custom applications and interfaces on top of an Airtable Base with Airtable Apps.

Custom Apps in Airtable

Custom Apps in Airtable have been around since the Airtable Blocks SDK was released at the beginning of 2018, and were recently renamed to Apps. The release of Blocks was huge in that it meant that creators now had the ability to develop, as Airtable puts it, “An infinitely recombinable Lego kit.”

More recently with the change to apps, the Airtable Marketplace made it possible to share apps publicly, as well.

Airtable Apps provide businesses with an infinitely recombinable Lego kit they can tailor to their needs.

In order to build a custom app in Airtable, a JavaScript developer must know how to use React, one of the most popular JavaScript libraries for building user interfaces. Airtable provides a component library of functional React components and hooks, which are a huge help for rapidly building a consistent UI and determining how you will manage state within the app and its components.

Check out Airtable’s Getting Started article for more information and Airtable on GitHub for examples of apps.

Airtable Dashboard Requirements

After reviewing the dashboard mockups with the client team, the types of data to be used were clear. We would need a series of dashboard components that would display as text on the dashboard and charts of different metrics that could be tracked over time.

Coaches and medical professionals needed to be able to build a custom dashboard for each patient, so we needed a flexible way to add and remove charts. Other static data relative to each patient would be displayed no matter the patient selected.

In this case, the dashboard sections boiled down to:

  • General Information - Patient Name, Email, Phone Number, Contact Preference, Date of Birth, Age
  • Objectives - Goals the patient has based on survey results
  • Some Stats - BMI, Height, and Weight
  • Medicine Use - Listing all prescription drugs already used by a patient
  • Family History of Conditions - Helpful in diagnosing certain conditions
  • Charts - A section where the Airtable dashboard user could add a chart and configure which metric it would visualize over time

 

Image showing an Airtable Dashboard mockup.

 

One way to approach all of the sections except for charts would be to hard-code all the columns for objectives, medicine use, and family history into the dashboard. However, that would not allow the client team to add new questions to a Typeform survey nor add a new column to an Airtable table to present that data on the dashboard without having a developer update the custom app.

A more elegant and extensible solution to this challenge was finding a way to tag columns as relevant to a particular dashboard section and retrieve those columns using the metadata that Airtable exposes when using the Table and Field models.

This was achieved using Field Descriptions as a place to tag a column from the Table as relevant to a dashboard section to be displayed to the user. Then, we could ensure only those with the Creator role (the administrators) for the Base had the ability to modify these Field Descriptions to alter what appears on the dashboard. To illustrate this solution, we will focus mostly on the items in General Information and how to present Charts.

Creating a #TAG# System

Given the dashboard sections, it made sense to make reusable tags for some sections and specific tags for certain columns. For items like patient name, email, and phone number, #NAME#, #EMAIL#, and #PHONE# were added to each Field’s description, respectively. That would allow that information to be retrieved via the Table metadata like this:

const name = table ? table.fields.filter(field => field.description?.includes("#NAME#"))

For areas of the dashboard that would need to draw from many tagged columns we would have the following tags for each dashboard section:

  • OBJ - Objectives
  • FAM - Family History
  • MED - Medicine Usage
  • CAN - Family History specific to cancer
  • CHART - Any column that should be sourced for adding charts; must be a quantity

In addition, it was important to separate the name of a column in a Table from the label it would receive on the dashboard, so anything that received a #TAG# would also have the ability to receive two #LABEL# tags in its Field Description. A Field Description would look like this:

 

Screenshot showcasing the use of tags in a field description.

 

In case the #LABEL# tags are missing, we will display the column name from the Table.

We can parse out the label set in the description with a simple function like this after retrieving the field with the previous code example:

// utils.js

export const setLabel = (field, labelTag = "#LABEL#") => {
   const labelTags = (field.description?.match(new RegExp(labelTag, "g")) || []).length;
   let label;
   if (labelTags === 2) label = field.description?.split(`${labelTag}`)[1];
   if (!label || label?.trim() === '') label = field.name;
   return {...field, label, name: field.name, description: field.description};
}

With this #TAG# system, we achieve three main things:

  • Column names (fields) in the Table can be changed as desired.
  • Labels for data in the dashboard can be distinct from column names.
  • Dashboard sections for Objectives, Medicine Usage, Family History, and Charts can be updated by the client team without touching a line of code.

Persisting State in Airtable

In React, we use state and pass it to components as props in order to re-render that component if its state changes. Normally this is tied to an API call that fuels a dashboard component, but in Airtable we already have all the data and simply need to filter what we are displaying based on which patient we are viewing. In addition, if we use state, it will not persist the data past a refresh in the dashboard itself.

So, how can we persist a value past refresh to keep a dashboard filtered? Fortunately, Airtable provides a hook for this called useGlobalConfig in which it maintains a key-value store for an app installation on a dashboard. We simply need to implement the logic of retrieving values from this key-value store when the app loads to fuel our dashboard components.

What is even more useful about using the useGlobalConfig hook is that when its values are set, the dashboard component and its child components re-render, so you can use the Global Config like you would use a state variable in a typical React implementation.

Introducing Charts

Airtable provides examples of charts with its Simple Chart App, which uses React Charts, a React wrapper on Chart.js (chart-ception).

In the Simple Chart App, we have one chart for the whole app, but in our Dashboard App, we need the ability for the user to add and remove their own charts from their own dashboard. What’s more, in discussion with the client team, it seems that certain metrics would be better viewed on the same chart (like readings for diastolic and systolic blood pressure).

With this we have the following items to tackle:

  • Persisting state for each user’s chart (or even better using Global Config)
  • Allowing multiple metrics per chart

This is where the power of the Global Config comes in handy, as we can use the key-value store to maintain the selected metrics and anything else about our list of charts. As we configure a chart in the UI, the chart component itself will be re-rendered due to updates to the Global Config. For the charting section of the dashboard, here is a gist with the components for reference, focusing on dashboard charts.js and single chart.js.

The table passed to each chart is what is used for its metadata to find the fields, whereas the records passed have already been filtered by the patient selected at the top-level dashboard component that imports dashboard_charts/index.js.

Note that the fields listed as options in the dropdown for a chart are pulled using the #CHART# tag we mentioned before, with this line in a useEffect hook:

// single_chart/index.js

…
useEffect(() => {
  (async () => {

...

    if (table) {
      const tempFieldOptions = table.fields.filter(field =>    
        field.description?.includes('#CHART#')).map(field => {
          return {
            ...setLabel(field),
            value: field.id
          }
       });
       setFieldSelectOptions([...tempFieldOptions]);
    }
  })();
}, [table, records, fields]);


...

The code above shows how the setLabel function referenced earlier is used with the #TAG# to add anything provided in the #LABEL# tags and display it for the option in the field dropdown.

Our chart component takes advantage of the multi-axis capabilities provided by Chart.js, which is shown with React Charts. We just extended it via the UI with the user’s ability to add a dataset and a chart type (line or bar).

The key to using Global Config, in this case, is to know that each key can only hold a string | boolean | number | null | GlobalConfigArray | GlobalConfigObject (see Global Config Value reference).

We have the following items to maintain per chart:

  • chartTitle which is autogenerated and can be renamed by the user
  • fields array in which each item has:
    • field as fieldId from Airtable
    • chartOption as one line | bar as the Chart.js docs indicate
    • color as the Airtable color from the colorUtils
    • hex as the hex code relating to the Airtable color

To manage this, I found it most convenient to stringify this data as an object instead of setting Global Config keys and values all the way down. See the example below (globalConfig.json in the gist), which includes Global Config values to filter records by the patient and some related variables used to support a typeahead filtering component (thanks to react-bootstrap-typeahead):

{
 "xCharts": {
   "chart-1605425876029": "{\"fields\":[{\"field\":\"fldxLfpjdmYeDOhXT\",\"chartOption\":\"line\",\"color\":\"blueBright\",\"hex\":\"#2d7ff9\"},{\"field\":\"fldqwG8iFazZD5CLH\",\"chartOption\":\"line\",\"color\":\"blueLight1\",\"hex\":\"#9cc7ff\"}],\"chartTitle\":\"Gráfico criado em 11/15/2020, 2:37:56 AM\"}",

}

Note: All data contained above, and the data included in the animations below, are not real patient data.

Here’s a look at the final result:

What About the Typeahead?

In order to filter by patient, we needed a way to select a patient and then filter the records based on this patient. In this section, we review how this was achieved.

For the typeahead, react-bootstrap-typeahead was an easy choice, as the only steps left were preparing the options for the typeahead, mixing it with an Airtable input for styling and loading bootstrap, and some other styles for our menu. Dropping components from your favorite component libraries into an Airtable app is not as straightforward as in typical React web development; however, there are only a few extra steps to get everything to look the way you would expect.

Here is the final result:

 

Animated GIF showcasing the filter-by-patient functionality.

 

To render the Airtable input and keep all our styles consistent, react-bootstrap-typeahead comes with a renderInput prop. See more on how to modify the rendering of the component here.

For the bootstrap styles and to override our menu items, the following two utils were used from Airtable:

See frontend.js in the gist for an excerpt of the typeahead implementation.

This line was used to load bootstrap globally:

// frontend/index.js

loadCSSFromURLAsync('https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css');

You will notice some added logic for things like handling style changes on hover or restyling links (<a></a>) to get the familiar bootstrap look and feel. This also includes the handling of setting the Global Config values for the typeahead and filtering of records so that if a user leaves their dashboard, refreshes their page, or would like to share this dashboard with others, the app persists the selected patient in the Dashboard App. This also allows the users to install multiple copies of this same app side by side in the same Airtable Dashboard with different patients selected or with different charts.

Keep in mind that a dashboard in Airtable is also available to all users of the Base, so these custom app installations on a dashboard will be filtered to the same patients and charts no matter which users are looking at the dashboard at the same time.

Let’s recap what we’ve covered for far:

  1. Airtable allows both non-technical users and technical users to collaborate in Airtable.
  2. Typeform comes with an Airtable integration that allows non-technical users to map Typeform results to Airtable.
  3. Airtable Apps provide a powerful way to supercharge its Airtable Base, whether selecting from the marketplace or building a custom app.
  4. Developers can extend Airtable rapidly in nearly any way imaginable with these apps. Our example above took only three weeks to design and implement (with enormous help from existing libraries, of course).
  5. A #TAG# system can be used to modify the dashboard without requiring code changes by developers. There are better and worse use cases for this. Be sure to limit permissions to the Creator role if using this strategy.
  6. Using Global Config allows developers to persist data within an app installation. Mix this into your state management strategy to seed data for your components.
  7. Don’t expect to drag and drop components from other libraries and projects directly into your Airtable App. Styles can be loaded using the loadCSSFromString and loadCSSFromURLAsync utils provided by Airtable.

Future-proofing

Use a more sophisticated middleware

With Typeform and Airtable, it’s easy and cost-effective to configure the mapping of questions to columns.

However, there is one big drawback: If you have a survey of more than 100 questions mapped to Airtable and you need to modify a mapping, you must delete the entire mapping and start again. This is clearly not ideal, but for a free integration, we can deal with this.

Other options would be having a Zapier (or similar) integration manage the data between Typeform and Airtable.Then you could modify the mapping of any question to any column without starting from scratch. This would have its own cost considerations to factor in as well.

Hopefully, some of the lessons learned and communicated here will help others who are looking to build solutions with Airtable.

UI Designer Vs UI Developer

Comparing UI Designers to UI Developers
User interface (UI) designers and developers are directly responsible for the consumer base’s experience using an application or software program. Designers specifically deal with the visual aspects of the program, while developers deal with the overall performance and functionality of the software.
To get in depth knowledge on UI, enrich your skills on UI online training Course

Responsibilities of UI Designers vs. UI Developers
UI designers and developers work in tandem to create a program or application that is easy to understand and operate by their customers or clients. Though there may be some occasional overlap in the duties within the workplace, their designated duties are quite clear and are dependent on the other. UI developers are responsible for the coding and programming in the conception of an application, specifically with regard to how the software operates at the hands of the user. UI designers are in charge of applying their understanding of the program operations to create a visual experience that is most compatible to the program’s functionality.

UI Designers
User interface designers are tasked with understanding the programming language of the application in creation so that they can conceptualize and craft visual aspects that will facilitate usage of the program. They are expected to understand computer programming as well as graphic design due to the demands of their work, since they are in charge of incorporating their designs into the program correctly. Their designs are implemented into the layout, which is typically drafted by the developers, while the style of their designs is contingent on the guidelines given by the directors. Once these designs are finished, they must implement them into the program and run a demo of it for the developers and directors to ensure they met the needs and expectations of the project while ensuring there aren’t any bugs caused from their designs. Get more skills from UI Training

Other responsibilities of UI designers are as follows:

  • Make drafts in graphic design and editing software
  • Select fonts and determine color schemes, for consistency
  • Proficiency in programming codes such as Java or CSS
  • Create storyboards and test runs of animated, visual concepts

UI Developers
User interface developers are responsible for the functional aspects of a software application, coding and programming throughout all stages of development with the clients and potential users of the application in mind. They usually begin the process by incorporating the clients’ expressed needs into a layout that is modified as progress is made. Once they get the general functions working, the designers will incorporate their visual conceptions into the layout to ensure that the first draft is operational. If there are any bugs or malfunctions to fix, the developers must troubleshoot and patch the application. While doing these tasks, they must take detailed notes of all the progress made to streamline any future updates made to the program, functionally or aesthetically. Learn more from ui design course

UI developers will also be responsible for:

  • Utilizing research data to improve or build onto the design of the application
  • Suggesting any software updates to improve functionality
  • Constructing diagrams that will aide other developers and programmers on the project
  • Performing test runs of the application

UX designer ? UI designer ? UI Developer ?

The UX designer is someone who thinks about what should the user flow be like, which page should lead to which page, when should a confirm popup appear or not appear, should there be a listing page before or after a create-new page, should there be an address field in the page or geolocation is enough to serve the purpose? After brainstorming through each of these and several other questions, the UX designer comes up with something known as wireframes, which in simple terms is just a blueprint of the website/app.

The UI designer then takes the wireframes and makes them beautiful, also ensuring that the workflow of the product is communicated well to the user. He will add the pixel level details to the wireframes. What should be the font used, what should be the background image, do we need a background image, what should be the foreground color, how big should be the submit button, does it make more sense to have the menu at the bottom of the screen, what should the logo look like? The job of a UI designer is answering all these and thereafter delivering static mockups, using may be Photoshop, Invision and many other design tools.

The UI developer is the one who puts these static mockups in “real code”. They might need skills like HTML CSS , precompilers(like sass or less) , UI frameworks (like bootstrap or foundation), or xml layouts( in case of android UI) or a combined knowledge of all of them with Javascript (in case of react, react native). The result is a beautiful set of screens/pages which can be actually rendered in a browser or a mobile device.Learn more from ui design course

A Comprehensive Guide to UI

UI (USER INTERFACE)

UI or User Interface is the interface that is the access point where users interact with computers. It is also a way through which users can interact with a website or an application. UI design typically refers to graphical user interfaces but also includes others, such as voice-controlled ones, a keyboard, a mouse, and the appearance of a desktop.

UI design considers the look, feel, and interactivity of the product. Users judge the design on the basis of usability and likeability very swiftly, so a designer will focus on making each visual element look pleasurable and meaningful. The designer has to consider the color scheme, font imagery, spacing, responsiveness. Also, understanding the user’s context and mindset is crucial while making design decisions.

Types of user interfaces

The various types of user interfaces include:

  • graphical user interface (GUI
  • command line interface (CLI)
  • menu-driven user interface
  • touch user interface
  • voice user interface (VUI)
  • form-based user interface
  • natural language user interface

UI vs UX

Often confused a lot and understood one and the same thing terms UI and UX are related but not the same.

UX or User Experience describes the overall experience of the product and the UI only considers the appearance of the product. A UX designer’s work is to make the product usable and useful. UX means focusing on the whole user journey and the steps a user will take to attain a goal. UX designers will make wireframes without making any detailed design decisions for each wireframe. Once the wireframes are final they are handed over to UI designers to start adding emotions to it through design and animations.

UI is a part of UX which helps in making the user experience more pleasurable and user-centric. UI designer’s job is to make the product visually appealing and desirable. Where a UX designer will try to make a critical judgment on what feature to add and how to user will interact, a UI designer will make critical design decisions regarding those features. Like what should be the font, color scheme, and animations for the features and pages decided by the UX team.

Let’s take a scenario to see how UI designers and UX designers influence the same feature differently.

  • A UX designer will decide whether a page will have a top navigation bar, side navigation bar, or bottom. What links should be added to the bar and whether there will be a search bar in it or not.

  • A UI designer will decide what will be the color scheme of the navigation bar, whether to use icons or text in link buttons, what should be the font style, what animation to use when the user toggles navigation bar or switch between pages.
