Fibery can replace several tools for your company:
Spaces area reflects your organization and work structure, removing any mismatch between the tool and your work model.
Space usually represents some process. Like Product Development, Customer Discovery, Hiring, Vacation Tracking, etc.
Database is a kind of data like Task, Feature, Candidate or Vacation. For example, in Hiring Space you have Candidate Database. Space can have several Databases.
Field is a smallest unit of information inside Database. For example, text field, email field, formula field, relation field.
Let’s start from an example of a moderate complexity:
We have two Spaces here:
Project Management with two Databases: Project → Task
Meeting Notes with one Database: Daily Meeting
Databases are linked via Relations. For example, Project has a collection of Tasks.
The best thing in Fibery is that you can create (grow) your own process by creating Spaces and Databases. Nothing is forced. In almost all other tools you have to live with workarounds, unnatural relations, and excessive functionality. In Fibery you can have exactly what you need.
NOTE: This flexibility comes with a cost. As a Fibery administrator you have to understand things in depth to be effective.
How to build your own process? There are two options right now:
Manually by Adding Spaces and Databases
Install Spaces from Templates and connect them
