Local DB

Last updated last month

Many apps require a simple table of data to perform a number of essential tasks. One way to add this data is via an online Spreadsheet but a faster and simpler way to do so is through a Local DB, short for database.

Add a table of data to your app

The first thing you want to do after you add the component is to edit the data table.

You can enter your data manually or copy and paste it from most spreadsheets

Update data in your table

You may want to update the data in your locally stored table from the app itself. At the moment, you can only update a specific cell. We are hoping to add the ability to add and delete an entire row. Any updates you make to the table from the app will only be seen by the specific user of the app. To make changes that will be reflected across all apps, we suggest you use the Spreadsheet component where data is stored n the cloud.
