Why should I use a feature template?

Feature templates are designed to get an app up and running quickly. We've taken the work out of choosing components, styling them, adding a database, hooking up the database, adding data, linking screens, and more. Now, it's easier than ever to get a fully functioning app in a fraction of the time.

Can I use more than one feature template in an app?

Of course! Our feature templates are made to work with one another. In several of the feature templates, you'll notice they're made with the same branding in order to quickly piece together features and have an app. Even the feature templates that do not share a brand can be used together.

What is sample data?

One of the most important parts of any app is the database. With each of our feature templates, you have the option of adding sample data. The sample data will allow you to quickly view the app's functionality right in your own preview. This saves you the headache of entering your own data.


Like all parts of your app, any functionality you add through Feature Templates should be examined through our User and Collection Permission features to make sure you appropriately lock down any information you would like to secure. For example, we strongly recommend setting any admin-related booleans on the user record to β€œNobody” under the β€œWho can update and delete?” dropdown. This will ensure that no one can change a user’s admin status but you. You can then alter this setting per user manually by going into your Collections inside of Adalo. The rest of your permissions will be up to you as only you know the functionality of your application and which users should have access to various data and actions. For more information, please read our Collection Permissions help docs carefully.
