Custom Database - Guide?

Hi All, I just noticed that often we need a custom db for data, for example user data in Revo is limited.

It seems like a hurdle to some new users, maybe a big one I can’t say for sure.

Is there a good guide for setting up some custom tables?

for a quick start with custom-tables try
