Available on version 3.5 and above.

Hopefully this gives assurance that Adalo can achieve some high standard requirements than other no code tools which are having difficulty to achieve the same thing.

I wonder what would happen if performance will be increased, more complex and high standard apps will emerge and will be more useful to users.


For those who have purchased, this update is free, please notify me through private message.

@Yongki I like what you’ve done. I’m curious as to what the cost of the app is, I would like to implement some of the features.

Hi @Drearystate ,

It is here,

We can discuss in private message on how you want to integrate to your apps.

I think only Bubble template like this one that have similar functionality, other no code tools only scratching the skin.

I think a clarification is needed.

  • Adalo does not facilitate template marketplace like Bubble or Glide
  • This forum is about helping as much as possible with free efforts
  • Some activities are not meant for free support, because they involve deeper understanding, practices that come from experience and time commitment

That is why I hide the price, but with just a click to the blurred box, it will show up.

There are 3 type of prices, and as far as my research they are all underpriced compared to other similar functionality, even the integration support is not supported by other platforms which is actually very true, because merging no code apps means rebuilding.

So, I am about as very supportive as I can and if possible bring back some of my knowledge to support this free forum.

Everyone will learn a lot from each other if they have enough time and effort.

That is wonderful story, hope for the best for you. :grinning:

If you are interested in my free template, you can find here.

I am sorry then, didn’t mean for others to feel that way.

So I was working on notifications for my chat app and came up with a way to list message count of unread messages on each chat even with group chats. Has anyone else looked into this?

Also set it up so that in every group chat you can click on any message and see a list of who has read the message and who hasn’t. It will also tell you when they read the message if they read it. I did it with modalo and one without which I used to add the last time they were in the chat.

How do you make this?

Great your project !!

I am currently building a chat, already functional. The next step was precisely that, to be able to create groups. How could I integrate it or know how it works in order to adapt it to my project? I would be very grateful!

Very good work!!

In message, there is expiration date, so if current time is after that expiration, it will be hidden.

To have group chat, we need to add additional users to members, it a many to many relationship, so use update action then choose add users.

To get the details, you can buy the template.

@Yongki Where do you get the template?

How do you add the Read checkmark for messages? As well as showing the count of unread messages

Click the blurred picture.

This is the same concept as disappearing messages, only the reference date is different.

Don’t know what that is.
Could you please DM me?

Showing :sunny:︎On status when another chat party enter the chat conversation, both at conversation list and messages list, so chat user knows that this conversation is synchronously real time, every messages will be read immediately by opposite :sunny:︎On chat user.

compressed 2022-01-15 at 9.47.23 AM

Group chat will also show :sunny:︎On status of each members’ users

Template features summary :

  1. Single record in Read Status collection for each user and each conversation, no more multiple records
  2. Conversation from 2 chat users can be converted in group chat
  3. Blocking to other users, but the blocked user does not know that they are blocked, due to sensitivity of blocking action
  4. Check mark for read indicator in messages list and conversation list, so user that sent messages know their messages are read, not only delivered
  5. :sunny:︎On status to attract opposite chat user to enter the conversation, as mentioned above

This template will not replace other popular chat apps such as Whatsapp, Telegram, Signal etc due to their massive tech prowess, but this will serve us to our own apps that we can control easily and build using Adalo platform which can be extended to other functions that Adalo can take us.

This template is using built-in components within Adalo, so it is still open for more functionalities if we use more custom components.

For first time builders, it will help to learn the logic behind custom list which is very powerful.

I will continue to update this from time to time.

Thanks for the attention.

Hello Yongki - I would be interested in purchasing your template. I can’t DM you as I am new and apparently need to make some posts first:) but please reach out to connect and coordinate. Thanks!
