Pull from Parabola Table

The Pull from Parabola Table step is a source step used to pull data from a Parabola Table that you have access to. If you are an Editor or Viewer on a Flow, any Parabola Tables on that Flow will be available to be pulled in as a data source using this step.

Settings

The dropdown options for Tables to import will be located on the left-hand side. Tables that you have access to will be listed in the dropdown options. This step can access any Table in your Parabola account that you are authorized to access (whether as Viewer, Editor or owner).

Helpful Tips

This step pulls data exactly as it is shown in your Parabola Table. Visual formatting, such as colors, will not show up in this step.

If you do not see your Parabola Table in the dropdown, check to make sure the Allow other Flows to pull data from this table option is enabled on your Send to Parabola Table step.

If you need to bring in multiple Tables, use multiple Pull from Parabola Table steps to bring in the data. Then combine the dataset using a Stack tables or Combine tables step.

Pull data from multiple Parabola Tables in the same Flow

Limitations: when working across multiple Flows, the Pull from Tables step will only pull from a Table that has been published on a Flow with a successful run. When working within the same Flow, you can also pull from a draft (unpublished) table.

Send to Parabola Table

The Send to Parabola Table step is a destination step that lets you send your dataset to a Parabola Table, which appears on the Live view of your Flow. Data sent to that table will be visible to anyone with access to that Flow (Viewer, Editor or Owner) on the Live page.

Settings

1. After you connect your Flow to this export step, it will show a preview of the Table data. You must give your Table a name on this step (and you can edit the name from here at any time).

2. By default, the Allow other Flows to pull data from this table option will be checked. Teammates who are added as an Editor or Viewer on the Flow will also be able to use the Table as a data source on their Flow.To prevent other Flows from pulling this Table, disable this option. Tables will still be visible in the Flow’s Live page, and can be pulled within the same Flow.

Live View

Once you publish and run your Flow, the Table on your Live view will populate and update. The Live view will show as many Tables as are generated by your Flow, so you can display multiple Tables at any given time.

Helpful Tips

Security: the data you send through this step is stored by Parabola. We store the data as a convenience, so that the next time you open the Flow, the data is loaded into it. Your data is stored securely in an Amazon S3 Bucket, and all connections are established over SSL and encrypted.

Your Table’s content is never discarded. To remove the data, you will need to delete the step from both Draft and Published versions of the flow (or delete the entire Flow).

Limitations: Parabola Tables will be limited to our current cell count limitation (described here).

*At launch, you can use unlimited Parabola Tables at no extra charge to your team. After a beta period, we’ll move to a usage-based model for Parabola Tables data storage. (You will not be charged retroactively for usage during the beta period.)
