Mission 2 - Overview

What you need

Welcome to your second mission! As we said in the first section, these missions are designed to teach you core elements of Method functionality

PLEASE NOTE: In order to complete this mission, you will have to have read our documentation sections on App Management.

Although you are able to start with any mission, you’ll get the most out of the series if you complete all the missions in order from start to finish.

What You'll Learn

This Mission will deal with what we’ve learned about application configuration, screen configuration, and permissions.  Once you complete the following missions, you will know how to:

  • Create a custom app,
  • Design a screen to add a record
  • Design a screen to list records
  • Change the default screen
  • Add snapshots

You will also be able to:

  • Understand best practices for app building
  • Articulate the relationship between apps and screens

The Scenario

Valerie, the owner of We Drive Stuff, Inc., wants to build an app in Method that will help her keep track of her fleet of vehicles and the employees who drive them.  In the last mission, we created a custom table called Cars that can be used as the base table for Valerie’s app.  We populated that table with relevant fields, and we used a dropdown field to automatically build a second new table and create a relationship between the two.  Now we’re going to take what we built in the last section and apply it to building the framework of Valerie’s custom app!
