Getting Started With Tadabase
Creating Your Tadabase Account
Creating a Tadabase account is simple and quick. Each new account comes with a free 14-day trial so you can explore the platform and determine which plan is best for your business. The trial period has nearly no restrictions and can be used solely for the purpose of testing the application.
To create an account, head over to the Tadabase Website.
On the top right-hand corner of the screen, you will see the "Get Started" button, where you will be prompted to enter some basic information including:
- Your Name
- Your Business Email Address (must be unique)
- Password (requirements of 8 characters, 1 upper and lower case, 1 special character, and 1 number)
Please Note: After signup, you can choose to use your own custom domain instead of a Tadabase subdomain by changing the domain settings in your app settings. Custom domains are included with all Tadabase paid plans.
Signing Into Your Account
Once you have created an account, you will be routed to the Tadabase builder platform where you can begin creating your application.
You will be automatically signed into your account upon account creation, however if you need to sign in again, please go to Tadabase Builder Sign in and enter the email address and password you entered when you created your account. You may also login to your account using Single Sign On (SSO) via your Google, Twitter, Facebook, or Github accounts.
If you forgot your password, click on the forgot password link and a new password will be emailed to you. Please remember to update your password once you successfully login to your account.
Creating Your First App
First you will be prompted to tell us a bit about your plans so that we can personally customize Tadabase for your unique needs. When you are finished, click "Start Building".
Now that things are customized for your personal needs, you can begin creating your first app! You will be required to have a name for your app and choose if you would like to add a description and customized color.
You will then be directed to the Data Builder, the first section of the Tadabase builder where you can define the data structure comprising your app.
To assist you in creating your first app, each new app comes with a sample data table to demonstrate how data tables are structured with fields (columns) and records (rows).
For beginners to database structuring, it is helpful to think of data tables as spreadsheets, fields as columns in a spreadsheet, and records as rows within a spreadsheet.
You can delete the sample data table at any time by clicking on the Settings tab of the sample data table's top navigation menu and scrolling down to the very bottom where you will find the Delete button.
You can then begin adding your data tables. To learn how to add data tables, please read the Data Tables article.
The following articles in this manual will expand on the Tadabase platform, including the Data Builder and the Page Builder, and will provide detailed, step by step instructions on how to create your application from start to finish utilizing these sections of the Tadabase builder platform.
