SqlDBM’s user interface is specifically designed as an independent platform that is ridiculously easy to use. Any proprietary commercial softwares are unnecessary for its use - all you need is a browser. But this does not mean that SqlDBM suffers reduced utility compared to the commercial-database alternatives. The interface is richly functional and includes many abilities such as drag-and-drop elements (for example when moving a column to another table), in-and-out zoom, and modification of all database objects. Here it is, at your fingertips, a rich, on-the-spot design tool that can be used anywhere and on any browser.
Change your SqlDBM Background Theme to match your personal preference. Whether you prefer dark-colored text on a light-colored background or vice versa, SqlDBM now has you covered. We previously only offered a dark-colored background theme, but the option to alter or customize this was one of our users’ top feature requests.
When you click Share Link, a URL is created which you can simply copy and send to other team members so they can navigate directly to the project. If your project is not saved, SqlDBM first prompts you to do so before creating a share link.
SqlDBM now offers a unique new feature – Subject Areas. Think of them is as filters in your database. You may be interested in only a subset of your database, say only those tables created by user ‘dbo’, or only those objects with a direct relationship to the ‘Customer_Master’ table. You can create subject areas to reflect any of these scenarios.
View Modes allow you to zero in and limit what you are currently viewing to only objects of interest. For example, you may want to simplify and view only the tables in your database, without any visual ‘clutter’ of columns, indexes, keys and so on. To do this, simply click View Modes and select the ‘Table’ view mode, also accessible via the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+1. Other available view modes are Pk/Ak (to view only Primary and Alternate keys), Columns (to view all columns in all tables) and Notes (to view all notes previously created).
When working on your SqlDBM project, every time you click ‘Save’, a new version of your project is automatically created. Made some inadvertent changes and need to revert to a previous version of your project? Easy - just navigate to the list of versions, numbered by timestamp, and roll back to whichever version you want
All versions are stored in the cloud for security and quick and easy retrieval. And you can create your own custom labels or descriptors for any version or revision, say “New Sales Structure, created 12-25-2017, to be rolled out Q1 2018”.
SqlDBM enables you to visualize database design online for MS SQL Server & MySQL. While creating a project in SqlDBM, you can select a type of your project in either MS SQL Server or MySQL. You can even convert your project from MySQL to SQL Server and vice versa.
