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, go to tadabase.io/create
You will be prompted to enter some basic information including:
- Your Name
- Your Business Email Address (must be unique)
- Password (Minimum of 6 characters)
- Tadabase Subdomain (must be unique). Your Tadabase subdomain (example: myapp.tadabase.io) is the URL that will be used to access your live application.
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 In To 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 in to your account upon account creation, however if you need to sign in again please go to https://build.tadabase.io 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
Once you create your account, you will be routed directly to the Tadabase builder platform where you can begin creating your first app. You will be prompted to enter the name of your app (required) and choose an app color and description (optional). When you are finished, click Create New App.
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 clicking the Delete button.
You can then begin adding your data tables. To learn how to add data tables, please read the Data Tables article.
