Notepad for the user

Hello. Please tell me how to create a notepad for personal user records in Adalo? So that the user can write the text, and it is saved in the same place.

Save to locally.

Do you mean send the data to the database or save it locally?

Save to locally.

Well this is not possible in the meantime in Adalo, you can submit an idea on ideas.adalo.com

Perhaps you can advise the integration of some third-party service? Perhaps google docs? Or something that can function as a notepad. I will be very grateful for the answer. Thanks.

You can find the documentation here for integrating google docs; Google Docs API  |  Google Developers

But if you are willing to use google docs, why don’t you use Adalo’s db?

Sorry, I didn’t understand the answer a bit. I need any text field, or an editor in which the user can type in text, and the text is saved locally as the text of the half-body. As an example of a notepad. As I understand it, at the moment I can only give the opportunity to create an editable text post. Or are there more options?

Sorry, but what do you mean by locally?

Conditionally. I am entering a text field that serves as a notepad for the user. The user enters his notebooks 1, 2, or 3, … And enters text content into them, and it is saved locally in the same notebook (as in Google docs, but with a limited functionality). Then he can go back to the notebook, read what he wrote and change the text if necessary.

Hi @Vova,

Just a small note how Adalo works.

When you create the app, you have Adalo Database which is used for storing all records. You can create collection for Notes and link it to Users, so that each User can have several notes.
An important thing is, that getting this data to Adalo app can not work without connection to the internet.

When we are talking about storing something locally, this means we store the information on the phone of the user. Adalo isn’t capable of doing that as of now (to be more precise, implementing such functionality will require heavy workarounds and usage of custom-developed components).

So if you’re comfortable with the fact that your app requires Internet connection, you can go with Adalo DB (and I see no reason of connecting Google Docs via API).
If you need an “offline” storage, then Adalo can’t do this for you (and anyway Google Docs API won’t help you here as well).

Hope my explanations were clear.

Best,
Victor.

Thank you very much. I understand that only when using the Internet. I just didn’t find the very possibility of notes for users.

Can you tell me where to find such a note for users?

Hey @Vova,

You need to create the app and its functionalities by yourself - this is what Adalo for :slight_smile:
I would advise starting from reading help docs here https://help.adalo.com/ and here https://appacademy.adalo.com/

Best,
Victor.
