Database Overview

The Restaurant Ordering template comes with a database that contains sample data. Each Adalo database contains Collections and each collection comes with the associated Properties. Any necessary relationship between the collections is set up, as well.

Important Note About the Database:

If you delete a Collection or Property from the Feature Template, this could impact the functionality of your app.

If you add a Collection or Property to your Feature Template, this will not impact the functionality of your app.

Below is an outline of the included Collections and their Properties. The Collection name is bolded and includes a description. The Properties include their name, property type (in brackets), and a description.

Layout Settings

Each screen in the Social Media Feed Feature Template is created using responsive design. The screens will look good on any device or tablet.

Most screens have been designed with Custom Layouts. If you add a new component to a screen, you might notice that the other screen sizes are impacted.

To view or edit the layout for different screen sizes — click the Screen title to reveal the dropdown.

The default view for this template is Desktop. When you change the screen size for one screen in the Builder, it does not change the screen size of the rest of the screens on the canvas.

Hidden Components

In each view, there may be components that do not appear on Desktop, but are visible on Mobile. These are grayed out in the lefthand panel & denoted with an icon.

Another way to view which device components are visible on is the Layout Tab here:
