Addressing Data Transfer Across Multiple Pages and Record Creation in Xano

This meeting, involving multiple State Changers was primarily about troubleshooting a challenge with passing data across multiple screens using Xano, as well as understanding how to create new records in Xano.

The main issue presented was the difficulty of passing data from user inputs across multiple screens and successfully creating a record that can be saved to the user table in Xano. There seemed to be scarcity of information and guides on how to create new custom actions in Xano, specifically regarding creating new records. The group discussed the processes of hitting the post endpoint for creating a record in Xano, and the need to set up a corresponding endpoint for the user. They dove into the specifics of the required fields and whether certain functions, like capturing email inputs across screens, were set up correctly. Proposed solutions included setting up page parameters to carry data through the screens, only saving to Xano at the final stage or using page linking to pass data forward across screens. Ultimately, it was decided to try creating an action at the end of the flow instead of at the beginning to carry all information collected to that point. The meeting concluded with the participant agreeing to try this new approach and report back with the results. The meeting should be useful for anyone dealing with similar challenges in data management and Xano usage. Tools discussed in depth during the meeting included Xano, Adalo and dollar. Other technologies mentioned included Firebase, Google, OAuth, Stripe, Twilio, Airtable, DraftBit, Javascript, Typescript, React, Vue.js, JSX, HTML, CSS, lambda, serverless, and State Change.
