Display contact dashboard data via HubDB?

Hi - I've recently built a dashboard for our customers to login to and see data based on their monthly use of our platform via jS charts. Currently I'm using contact properties/fields to display the personalised data but I can't help but feeling I could/should be using HubDB for this. Can HubDB be used to display personalised data based on who the logged in user is? Many thanks!

Thanks @sharonlicari 

 

Hey @tommitchell 

So yes you definitely could, but then the HubDB tables would have to be either manually maintained or have an external application built to maintain the data.

Thank you @sharonlicari and @Kevin-C . That's fine - I'd be looking to do an manual update of data each month. Would you be able to advise how I can ensure that the data displayed is relevant to the logged in user (for private content)? Many thanks!

I'd imagine you could create a column in the table that acts as a unique identifier, and use this field to retrieve the correct information. If none of this information is private or of value to anyone outside of the client and your team this might be viable.

 

EDIT:

So i'm pretty sure that once your content is published into the HubDB all the content is public so this might not be a viable solution for you.

Thanks Kevin - the privacy of HubDB was a concern for me. Do you have any other suggestions of how I might be able to display dynamic user data to our customers that doesn't involve creating countless new fields/properties?
