Features

Editing a data source with a form component offers the following features:

  1. App developers can manage data without the data source interface.
  2. App developers can link two components to a data source.

Get Started

To edit a data source with a form component you’ll need to:

  1. Set up the list from data source
  2. Set up the form

This is a handy feature that will allow you to manage your data without having to use the data source interface on Fliplet Studio. 

You’ll need two components for this – a List from data source component and a form. It’s important that both of these components are linked to the same data source in order to work. 

Step 1 – Set up the List from data source:

  1. Set up a new component or use an existing one

  2. In the Entry management settings, you need to select the option to add or edit data. When asked what screen to use to edit/add data, select the screen with the form

  3. Set up the list and detail views. If you need help with setting this up, please take a look at this article.

Step 2 – Set up the Form: 

  1. Set up your form adding all the fields that you need to enter the correct data 

  2. If you need any help with setting up the form please have a read through this guide.

  3. In the Form Settings, make sure to select that the form should save entries into the same data source that the list from data source is using.

Finally, move to Preview mode to test the feature.
