how to create a database

add a new database

The first thing to do is to add a new database.​

You can create a new database by opening on the Site Structure on the left. Once there scroll down till you see "Database", then hover on it and click on the + sign next to it.

Once done select "New Collection", then choose a name for your database. In this example we will use "My Database" as name.

Once you choose the name, click on the  "Create Collection" button.

add fields to a database

Once the database "My Database" is created, we have to add their fields.

We do this by tapping on the + sign next to the "Title" field, then choose the name you want for your field. In this case we will call our new field "name" and leave its type as Text. 

Once done click on the blue button "Add".

Your new "Name" field has been created now.
