What is a data block

Formaloo uses data blocks like Lego bricks to build forms, reports, and more. Combine these blocks to create the perfect app for your needs.

Every formaloo you create in your dashboard will be composed of many "blocks," in the same way a LEGO castle is composed of many LEGO bricks 🧱

Everything in Formaloo is a "block"

When you create your first formaloo in your dashboard and add fields to it, you've started with a database block.

As you've seen in the previous tutorials, your database automatically shows the fields in a form view.

Imagine every field you add to a formaloo — whether it's text, dropdown, or an image — as a single building block. Every formaloo is a stack of blocks combined however you want.

📝 Additional insights:

You can build a lot more views than just forms!

Read on to see how you can create an app with your data blocks.
