Usage Information

If you are using NocoDB with version 0.90 onwards, please check out the latest documentation here instead. The documentation for previous versions is no longer maintained and will be completely removed on 30 Jun 2022. See v0.90 Important Announcement for more.

NocoDB is a fast growing open source project and we are committed to providing a solution that exceeds the expectations of the users and community. We are also committed to continuing to develop and make NocoDB even better than it is today. To that end, NocoDB contains a feature in which anonymous and otherwise non-sensitive data is collected. This anonymous and non-sensitive data gives a better understanding of how users are interacting and using the product.


We will always continue to do hands-on UI/UX testing, surveys, issue tracking and roadmap. Otherwise talk with the Community while striving to understand and deliver what is being asked for and what is needed, by any means available.

However, these above actions alone are often insufficient to maintain an overall picture of the product usage.
