Why Use Multiple Sections?

Imagine having a single app that can efficiently capture all the information you need for different aspects of your business operations. With Clappia's "Multiple Sections," you can easily divide your app into various segments, each dedicated to collecting specific data.

How to Create an App with Multiple Sections

  • Creating the App: To begin, click on "New App" in your Clappia workplace. Name your app to set the context for the information you'll be collecting.

  • Dynamic Display: To show or hide specific sections based on certain conditions, use the "Display This Section If" feature. For instance, you can display a "Delivery Information" section only when a customer selects "Yes" for "Delivery Needed."

Real-Life Use Case: Billing Information App

Consider a real-life use case where you manage billing information for your business. You want to track store details, products purchased, purchase summaries, and delivery information for each order.

  1. Store Details: Begin by creating a section for "Store Details," where you can input information like store name, location, and contact details.
  2. Products Purchased: Next, add another section called "Products Purchased" to capture details about each product, including its name, quantity, and price.
  3. Purchase Summary: In a separate section named "Purchase Summary," use formulas to automatically calculate the total quantity of products and the overall cost based on the individual product purchases.
  4. Delivery Information: Finally, create a section for "Delivery Information" that appears only if the customer indicates a need for delivery.
