Kintone can be grouped into three main categories: Kintone Applications, Communication Features, and Kintone Extensions.
Users can design custom applications using the pre-built templates from the Kintone marketplace. They can also create one from start to finish and use the drag and drop tools to add their data and customize the app.
Kintone Apps contain a database feature that allows you and your team to list, store, search and graph data. Kintone apps also have built-in collaboration features, which enable you to add comments and tag coworkers to individual data records for feedback or task handoffs.
Here you have tools such as the Kintone Spaces, a customized workspace for each department, team, or project. Spaces help you and your team consolidate related data, apps, and conversations, to achieve an efficient workflow.
It is advisable to use a single subdomain for all spaces created in your organization to access them on the same platform.
You can also organize conversations within a Space by topic using the Threads tool. This makes it easy for team members to recognize new data and add information on specific issues.
As explained in the cons section, Kinetone Extensions are used to further customize your Kintone experience to match the specific needs of your team or organization. Using Kintone plug-ins and APIs, you can enjoy added services such as “advanced workflow customization” and “database development and configuration.”
Kintone offers integrations with several software systems, including Google, Quickbooks, Surveymonkey, Evernote, Zapier, Mailchimp, and Hubspot. Additionally, Kintone provides a public API so that customers can have universal access to the cloud service software.
