Every piece of data is called a “Record,” and these are linked to something known as an object. You can imagine an object like a page in an Excel file. The details (or properties) of the data are like the columns, and the individual records are like the rows.
The cool thing is, with Codeless ONE, you don’t need to juggle lots of separate Excel files. Everything’s in one place. So, using Codeless ONE apps, it’s easy to gather and sort all your data in one main spot.
When it comes to data management in your app, the capability to add new records is fundamental. This ensures all pertinent information is systematically stored and organized.
Here’s a guide on how to seamlessly add a new record:
Step 1: Choose the Object
Each record is linked to a specific Object. First, select the right one. For illustration, let’s use “Payment”. Imagine it’s a blank slate with no data.
Step 2: Dive into 'Add New'
Upon selecting “Payment”, there’s an “Add New” button at the top..
Clicking it brings forth a fresh form for the new record
Step 3: Input the Details
Navigate through the form, entering all necessary data for each property. To maintain a smooth experience, ensure all mandatory fields are completed. Conclude by clicking “Save“.
Review the Record:
Post-saving, your freshly added record will manifest in the preceding view. Generally, the display defaults to the initial five properties of your entry.
To fine-tune this, adjust the Properties settings via the App Editor.
Useful Tip: For bulk additions, the “Save and New” option is a lifesaver. It allows continuous record additions without having to circle back to the start each time.
Understanding the Default Record Display:
Your records’ appearance reflects your configuration in the App Model. For instance, in the “Payment” object, if you’ve sequenced properties (Invoice Number, Payment Type, etc.), that’s the order they’ll be displayed in. For any other personal configuration, the App Editor is at your service.
Note: It’s possible to adjust the view and subsequently add records. The records, once saved, will align with your current view setting.
