Building an Event Registration app
Hey there! Welcome to Tadabase. In this video, we'll guide you through building an event registration app using our platform. The goal is to create an app that allows users to register for various events while keeping track of the number of registrations and available spots.
To start off, we'll create a new application using our quick start wizard and install an event management application. Once that's done, we'll explore the pre-existing data tables. Our main focus will be on the events table, which stores information about each event.
To enable registration, we'll need to make some modifications. First, we'll create a new data table called "registrations" to store individual registration details for each event. We can also choose to connect registrations to specific users if we want to require account creation.
To set up the registration form, we'll add fields like name and email to gather user information. You can customize this based on your needs. Additionally, we'll add fields in the events table to track registration limits and the number of registrations.
Now, let's move on to the page builder. We'll create a page called "Events" and choose a layout that suits your preference. In this page, we'll use a list component to display the events from the data table. We'll customize the list to show relevant information such as event name, date, time, and registrations remaining.
To allow users to view event details and register, we'll add a record detail page. This page will include a form component to capture registration details. We'll set the form fields as required, such as name and email.
Once we've completed the basic page structure, we can preview it. Users will be able to see a list of events and click on the registration button to access the event details page. There, they can fill out the registration form to register for the event.
To ensure a seamless registration experience, we need to add some validation rules. Firstly, we want to prevent users from registering once all spots are filled. We'll create a page rule that displays a message when the registrations remaining value equals zero.
Additionally, we'll implement a validation rule to prevent users from registering multiple times for the same event. This rule will check for uniqueness based on the provided email address.
Lastly, if you prefer to hide events with no available spots, you can apply a data source filter to the parent level page. By setting the filter to show only records with registrations remaining greater than zero, you can choose whether to display or hide events accordingly.
And there you have it! You've successfully built an event registration app using Tadabase. With this app, users can register for events while ensuring that registration limits are respected and duplicate registrations are prevented.
We hope this video tutorial has been helpful to you. Thank you for watching, and we'll catch you next time. Take care!
