Getting Started
If you've made it this far, you're probably thinking about starting to build your app! We're so glad you're here. Check out the links below to find everything you need to start learning Adalo!

Three Basic Concepts

​
    ​Componentsβ€” The building blocks of the Adalo interface.
    ​Actionsβ€” Used to specify what your app should do when you click a particular component.
    ​Databaseβ€” Like an Excel spreadsheet, the database allows you to enter data to display to app users or to collect the data that they input into the app.
To get started building your app, think about which screens you want to build, what those screens should do, and what data they'll need to display and save. Be sure to check out our guide to app dat​a.​

Navigating Adalo

Canvas

    The Canvas is the workspace where you design the screens of your app
    Navigate in the Canvas using the scroll bar or your trackpadβ€” scroll left and right and zoom in and out

    A list of all the screens in your app and each component within each screen
Database
Settings
    Change the name of the app
    Set an icon for your app

    Copy or delete your app
Publish
    Once you have subscribed to a paid plan, you can use this panel to download the app file you can submit to the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store
    For Web Apps, this is where you can set the URL for your app

Top Bar

App Switcher
    In the middle of the Top Bar, you will see the name of the app you're currently creating
    Click the name to open the App Switcher and switch to another app in your account
    At the bottom of the list of your apps is a button to Create a New App
Preview
    Use this button to run your app in your web browser so you can test out what you're building.
Share
    The share button allows you to get a link to your app you can send to other people who don't have an Adalo account. This is helpful for getting feedback from others while you are building your app.
Account Menu
    Clicking the account icon opens a menu where you can access Help, Account Settings, and Sign Out
    From Account Settings you can edit the following:
      Profile Tab
        Name
        Email Address
        Password
      Team & Billing
        Team Name
        Team Members
        Billing Plan
        Payment Method
      Domains
        Adalo Subdomain
          Every app gets it own URL for viewing on the web
          The URL follows the format of: subdomain.adalo.com/app-name
          This where where you can customize the "subdomain" part of that URL
        Custom Domains
          You can also set your app's URL to be on your own domain so that your app's URL is something like app.mycompany.com
          You can connect your own domain to your Adalo account here
