Shared Database between app and web-app

Hi Guys! Actually I wanted to know if I can share the database of an app with a webapp?

so that users can register both from browser and app

have not tested yet - but from what i ve read - i would think its totally working this way since Adalo is hosting everything related to the DB if you want to.
Also interested in using that feature next too… :wink:

I think it will work between native apps and mobile web app, but not between native apps and a desktop web app

But, where do I connect it from?

inside the builder I can see the database already linked, I have not produced a webpage still so Have you looked in the tutorials on this matter of database ?

Yes this is possible @prakharm8. When you create a new app (web or mobile), in the last step click “Advanced options”. There you can select to use an existing database. This option could be displayed more prominently perhaps, because it’s very useful but a bit hidden.

It does or doesn’t work?

doesn’t sorry for the mistake

What exactly doesn’t work? If you create a record in one app, it doesn’t show up in the other with the shared DB?

The web app doesn’t share the db with the app

Is it possible to share the db when you are using a template cause i’m using the chat template

Yes this is possible.

I’m not sure how this can be the case though as a shared db is just a single db.

Can you DM the app name and app ID (URL) of these 2 apps please.

ok sure i will dm them
