Small hints: saving time - use one screen to show repetitive screens

In this video I show how to save time when creating several similar/repetitive screens (i.e. intro, onboarding, story, questionnaire, wizard, etc.). Instead of creating several screens manually, one can create just one screen and add some logic in DB and in the app.
The logic is driven by DB entries, so potentially it can be expanded. For example, you can return user to specific intro screen if onboarding is not passed, or change the screens sequence, etc.

Hi @Victor,

Thank you again for your thoughtful tutorial! I’ve tried to implement it in my quiz app. However it seems that it won’t work for me. When clicked, the “Next button” would automatically take the user to the “Home screen”. In other words, the TMPIntroStep in the “User” collection is always filled with “999” and there is no progression of steps.

I thought that it may be because on this repetitive screen, I display a text (the questions and answers) with some MagicText and somehow it is not related but can’t figure it out.

Thank you for your help if you have some time to consider

Hi @Sual,

I would advice to check if you “initialize” the TMPIntroStep before the start of the quiz (set it to 1). Also, check the database - your NextStepID/PrevStepID should be filled in correctly.

I don’t think it is related to screen’s “payload” - unless you’re doing something with TMPIntroStep in this payload :).

Best regards, Victor.

Hi,

I think I did it right, here is the setup…

Hi @Sual,

It’s difficult to understand what’s wrong with your settings judging just by the screenshots.

Quiz table seems ok.

I see on Button7 (Continuer) that you update User twice for some reason. Why would you want to do it?

Also, please note: that upon clicking Next (next question), you need to update User’s property “TMPQuizStep” to NextStepID. This will allow the list to refresh automatically with the next question.

Hi @Victor

Yes, actually I only need the “Next” button so my button7 “Continuer” is this one.

One is to set TMPQuizStep to 1, the other is to set TMPQuizStep to QuizNextStepId.

Also, I have filtered the Quiz List like that :

Now the TMPQuizStep updates correctly in the database up to 10 and then nothing displays. But the screen does not refresh (no new questions or answers)

Hi @Sual,

You need to have a conditional action to link to final after-quiz screen. This is shown on the video, 6:40 timestamp (approx).

Thank you again for your time. $

Actually the conditional action link when TMPQuizStep = 10 is set up and work properly.

But every time I hit the “Next” Button, the screen won’t refresh (questions and answers won’t change).

Hi @Sual,

Hope I showed how to fix that in my video (DMed)

Best,
Victor
