My use case is building a saas web app as an inventory management system for medical products.
I’m new to the no code world an do not have any code skills. i already tried different tools like adalo, softr, stackerhq, bubble.io.
glide works very well for me until now. but there is one function i couldn’t build:
i do have a table “product-template” with a lot of fields for one product (for example name, manufacturer., service interval…). the idea is to add a new row to the other table “products” and pre-fill most of the fields with values from the “product-template” table. at the end the user can duplicate the template product and just add unique information like “serial number” or “purchase date”.
is there a way to build this function with glide pages or glideapps?
Hi, if the information in the product-template table is always tied to that specific product, I wouldn’t bring that information into another table; I would reference that item with an “Item ID”, or better, add a RowID to the product-template table and reference it by that.
Doing it that way, if any information changes like the price (or the description is updated to correct a spelling error), you don’t have the bad information in your “products” table – you can display all the other information by making a relation between the two tables based on the RowID of the product-template table.
