I forgot about another component that I think would be game changing: import phone contacts.

Hmmm…maybe next time, it won’t let me edit the poll

I’ll definitely do another one of these in the future (if this one is successful) :slightly_smiling_face:

Just as an FYI, the poll will be closing May 21st, 2023 11:59 PM.

I would love a native component allowing users to access their phones contacts and send texts through the app.

In the next build in public series (~1 month), I’ll be sure to add this to the poll.

@James_App_Maker This is great. As the poll says, image and video management is a huge deal and severely lacking in Adalo as compared to mainstream apps.

I would love a future thought around components to be for video. I think we have to make improvements to the video uploader component in Adalo. This is something I get the most complaints about from clients. This includes the ability to upload more file types, auto compression of videos (to allow larger uploads), and a progress bar. A bonus would be a backend integration with Cloudinary to just give everyone tons of control. I think this is a huge need and would love to see it.

I agree. In this series I will be working on the multi image picker.

For video upload size, I can not control that, it’s all in Adalo’s control. In the next build in public series make sure to add your requests so they can be on the poll :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks. Just missed the poll post.

No problem, now your following it :grin:

I’ll be sure to tag you the next time too

Ok. Looks like the multi image picker won by a landslide. Going to start building soon and update everyone periodically :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Afonso,

I have kinda been getting busy but thanks for bumping this up.

I will donate to get a multi image picker done :sweat_smile:

My workaround for now is this…

I have 6 image pickers and actions for each picker that checks if it’s not empty then upload, I have some other actions that also assign each one to another table but it’s all a bit messy and not the best UX.
