Rest API, Bulk Editing & Quick Search

Import data from any REST API into your Noloco app

We're really excited to share that you can import data into your Noloco app from even more sources!

You can connect to any REST API to import data as collections in your app. Just tell us the base URL of the API along with any headers we need to set on requests and then configure and test each endpoint you want us to import data from 🚀

Collections created from API endpoints are read-only - our first-class integrations are still the go-to for interacting with external data sources.

For more information and set-up instructions, see our guide here.

We are initially launching this as an opt-in beta - for access please let us know via live chat or Slack that you are interested and we'll be in touch.

Bulk edit records

We're excited to announce our latest feature: the ability to bulk edit records. We understand how tedious and time-consuming it can be to update multiple records individually, so we've made it easier for you to edit all selected records at once. :zap:

How it works:

  • Enable bulk actions in your app settings
  • Check the records that you'd like to edit
  • Edit any field inline, and you'll be prompted with the option to update all selected records

This new feature not only saves you valuable time but can streamline your workflows and enhances your team’s overall productivity.

Quick Search

Introducing our new Command-Palette Search Bar!  ⚡

We're excited to announce the launch of our new Command-Palette Style Search Bar, designed to make navigating through your app even faster and more convenient.

With the new search bar, users can quickly find and access any page within their app by simply clicking the search box or using the Cmd+K (Mac) or Ctrl+K (Windows) keyboard shortcut. Type in the name of the page you're looking for, and the search results will instantly appear, allowing you to jump directly to the desired page with ease.

To enable the Command-Palette Style Search Bar in your app, simply go to your app's navigation settings (it's new ✨) and turn on the feature. Once enabled, the search bar will be accessible to all users within your app.

We've big plans for this Command-Palette, allowing you to do even more with your app, even faster ⚡⚡
