Improved Tabs, New Fields

Tabs on Blank Pages!

We're excited to unveil a feature many of you have been eagerly waiting for: Tabs on Blank Pages.

Gone are the days when tabs were restricted only to Record Pages. Now, you can seamlessly integrate tabs into your Blank Pages, creating a more organized and streamlined app experience. This new feature not only adds to the aesthetics but also boosts the functionality of your app, allowing you to neatly categorize the different sections on your pages.

And that's not all! Just like our record page tabs, these new additions come with dynamic visibility rules. Customize your tabs' visibility based on user properties, data conditions, or any criteria you deem fit, ensuring a tailored experience for every user.

Personalized Record Images

Our latest feature will allow you to add more visual style to your Noloco app! Now, you can integrate profile-picture-like images on both record pages and title components on blank pages, providing a more personalized and aesthetically pleasing look to your app.

Feature Highlights:

Dynamic or Static Images: You can now incorporate dynamic images or upload any file of your choice, giving you the flexibility to display the most suitable visuals for your pages.

Enhanced Personalization:
Whether it’s a profile picture or a company logo, the addition of these images will help in creating a more personalized and intimate user experience.

Increased Clarity & Context:

Providing visual cues like profile pictures or logos can offer more context and clarity, aiding in quicker information processing and improved user comprehension.

To get started, turn on build mode and open the header settings of you record page, or click on any of your title components on a blank page.

Structured Field Types

Say goodbye to splitting out your contacts’ names into multiple fields or writing out addresses in one line and hello to more structured data with our all-new field types! Let's dive right in:

1️⃣ Address Field:

🏠 Why it's Awesome: Go beyond basic text inputs for addresses. Capture complete and structured location data effortlessly.

Example Use Case: Imagine building a real estate app. Instead of typing out addresses as plain text, you can now input addresses as structured data. Users can search, filter, and map properties with ease.

2️⃣ Coordinates Field:

🌐 Why it's Awesome: Precision matters! Store latitude and longitude coordinates accurately for mapping and geolocation.

Example Use Case: Creating a delivery tracking app? With coordinates, you can precisely track and display the route of a delivery in real-time.

3️⃣ Date Range Field:

📅 Why it's Awesome: No more struggling with multiple date fields. Manage start and end dates seamlessly.

Example Use Case: For project management tools, scheduling events, or booking systems, the date range field streamlines the process. Easily set up events with precise time frames.

4️⃣ Full Name Field:

👤 Why it's Awesome: Say hello to organized contact data. Store first names and last names separately.

Example Use Case: In CRM systems, marketing automation, or any app where you handle customer data, this field ensures you can personalize messages effectively.

5️⃣ Phone Number Field:

📞 Why it's Awesome: Simplify communication by storing phone numbers in a standardized format.

Example Use Case: Building a recruitment app? With phone number fields, you can validate, format, and easily initiate calls or texts from within your application.

With Noloco's new structured fields, you're not just dealing with primitive types anymore. You're elevating your app's functionality, enhancing user experiences, and reducing data-entry errors.
