What have you tried so far?


Dear Dean,
I don’t know how to do, just asking if anyone can help about this

If you haven’t searched the forums or watched tutorial videos, start there. If you have, post a link to your project or screenshots of your blocks and explain what happens when you preview your project and what you want/expect to happen.

These may be helpful:

Thank you tatiang, as I understand this method will allow user to use another device with all info that use to enter to previous one by syncing method but I wonder if we do this method, can we do save the user data later to do customer analysis or not, do you have any idea?

If you want to store user data and analyze it later, you can use:

  1. Firebase
  2. Google Sheets
  3. Airtable

The difference for me – and the reason I often use Firebase – is that with Firebase, I can keep user data completely separate. With Google Sheets and Airtable, the data from multiple users is stored in the same spreadsheet. That’s not always bad but for me, I’m always a little more careful about how I code my project is I’m using Google Sheets or Airtable.

If you have multiple people who need access to the data from the developer side, it’s probably best to use Google Sheets (or Airtable) since most people are familiar with that.


Thank you Tatiang it is helpful explaination

This is how I usually my approach to saving data securely! There are other ways but I like this!

Blocks are color coded. So is the component drawer. Check it out! :slight_smile:

Not sure what you’re asking here. You can name a screen anything. I tend to name them based on what they do primarily

Firebase data transferred to a local table

We have a whole series of videos working with apis and objects on YouTube
