I have non-developers who I need to submit information into a HubDB table, create a new row with information. I want to do that by form. I understand that you can only add HubDB information directly or by API. Is there a solution for creating that a front end form that will add data to a specific hubDB table?
This was answered in 2018, with basically a "no", anything developing around this? Is there another service I can use for a form that will add the data to a new row in HubDB?

You could possibly try to setup a workflow to trigger a zapier webhook

@dennisedson Ah, I see. Then I think needing to be able to run a workflow on form submission would still be want they want (but is not a feature yet) as I don't know of any already built integrations that utilize just a single form for updating a specific database. There's HubDB HQ, but it's basically HubDB made more user-friendly and with some extra features. But I imagine the point of the form is to keep non-developers from messing with the columns or deleting things accidently so I suppose that wouldn't be much help.

@storycollab There currently still isn't any option to update the HubDB without doing it directly or through the API. I suggest submitting your use case to this Ideas post where they're asking Hubspot devs to make HubDB available in workflows (as I think for your use case being able to use a workflow to update the HubDB based on form submission would be the ideal). It won't solve your problem now, but hopefully in the future it'll be a feature Hubspot adds.
Is there any reason your non-develpers couldn't just look at the form submissions themselves? From the form dashboard click the form you want to view and then click to the Submissions tab. It lists out all submissions to that form. Then you can also click "Manage Columns" to select all the information you want to be viewable in the table.

This is a curious question 😀.
Just for my curiosity, why not allow this person to access the HubDB?
Also, what happens if something is submitted incorrectly?
