Allen Wrench is powered by a MySQL server behind the scenes. The tables are organized and accessed via Laravel's QueryBuilder. Inserts, edits, and updates are made on just about any page.

Automated email helps users stay up to date on their task lists. Whenever an insert, edit, or update occurs inside the app the user has the option to automatically email everyone in the organization about the change.

The dateTime PHP class and Carbon have come in handy while developing this application. The site uses many calendars and other features requiring date, time, and time zone.

Allen Wrench accesses its local filesystem to store and share user documents. From within the app, the user can upload and name, rename, and delete files. An index with the unique name and location of each file is kept in a table in the database.
