Ok, this is annoying.
My app is designed for internal company use. The home screen is a simple text input field.
Another screen contains a search list, which searches the user list.
When the right user is found in the search, I want to be able to click in the list and send the results back to the home screen.
Here’s the problem:
Apparently, Adalo won’t send data to a linked screen if the linked screen is the home screen. This is the click action setup when the link goes to the home screen:
No data is available to send.
But if I set a different screen as the home screen, data becomes available to send to my original target screen:
Why? Why should the home screen be different in this situation?
Now I have to create another workaround. I have to make a splash screen to serve as the home screen, which will add another unnecessary step to my user’s workflow.
I do love Adalo, but the more I use it to build my app, the more I feel like Adalo is “incomplete”. So many simple tasks require hacks or workarounds. More and more I feel like my Adalo app is held together with string and paper clips.
I’m willing to pay for the service, but please clean up all these hacky things.
