In Zengine, a record stores each individual set of data or each submission. For example, if your database is tracking clients, each client might have their own record that stores contact information and other important details. Or if you are tracking grant submissions, each potential grantee would have their own record containing their submission.
Records can be linked to one another in order to make them more dynamic and useful. A company record might be linked to multiple contact records for all contacts within that company. An applicant record might be linked to an application record for each year they've applied to something.
