I’m building an app where I want users to be able to search other users by location and interests… How do I get my users input this information so that other users can find them with it, because users only input their email, password and usernames… Help please
The easiest way to do that is to create a collection of all possible locations (for example: all countries) and add create a connection with the Users collection.
You can then add the collection to the sign-up form.
I hope this helps!
Thanks, this is helpful, so by doing that, will the users be able to input their locations themselves??
Sorry, I don’t understand clearly, do u mean I create one collection for location and put all possible locations on the database of the location collection?? Or
Do u mean I have create entirely a new collection for each location??
Yes, I will go through this process:
1- create only one collection that includes the list of possible locations (for example countries). So to answer your question, yes do it as you described below
2- Create a connection between the location collection and the User collection. Choose the first option if each user can only choose one location
3- add the location collection to the signup form:
Once they click sign up each user will have his own location that you can filter later.
Wow… Tnks so much
Tnk u, but also, I want to do a similar action where user can choose their interests, but In this case, they can choose multiple interests, what will I do differently in this case
Just for information : There is a request for get the Device Location that Adalo Team is working on and I believe when that released you don’t need to a add a field to add the location. And also Pragmaflow also created a component : GeoLocation filtering and GPS tacking
@Presh You’re welcome!
For multiple interests, you will do the same steps except for #2, choose the second option instead of the first one.
@dilon_perera Hi Dilon, I will definitely try the component, never tried it before. Thanks!
Tnx so much
Hello, please I’m having a problem, I have put multiple locations, but on the preview, it’s unable to scroll through all the options available… Any solutions to that??
