Clickable list for a business directory

Hello guys,
I’m a beginner here and i am in need of assistance. I’m looking to create a business directory app. I have added a list component and have created a DB so the names of the business appear on the list when I preview the app. However, I can’t figure out how to make it clickable so that users can click one of the business names and have it open to another screen with details of the business and an avenue for reviews. I thought about adding a text component to the list and linking it to a different screen for each business but I have up to 17k businesses in the directory and that would be a huge task. I was wondering if there was another way to go about it. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi @Zubby,

Welcome to the community :partying_face:

What you need to do is add a new screen for show the details of that business and add a link action to the added list to go to that screen. Then you can add components on that screen and add the business details from magic text.

Try that and let us know!

Thank you

Thanks for your reply. However I am looking to create a directory of over 17000 businesses. Is there no other way to that or creating screens for each business is the only option?

You don’t want to create individual screens for every business. Just add a new screen and then link the list to that screen and then you should have access for current business data and then you can add components ( text , image etc ) on that added screen and fill them with magic text.

Ok. I think I understand what you mean. I’ll try it out and let you in on my progress. Thanks very much
