Dynamic Data

Dynamic data can come from the internal data provider, a component or an external source. They allow you to use a variable, connect to a database or manage data that changes over time.

Learn about the different types of dynamic data and how to use them.

The types of Dynamic Data

Dynamic Content 

Unlike static content that is manually inserted into your screens, dynamic content is automatically generated from a database. It allows you to more easily manage large volumes of content and to dissociate the design from the content.
Your database can be created from the data provider or from an external source (Airtable...).

Variable

Define and store user-specific values such as number of points, page progression, number of sessions, etc. A variable associates a unique identifier with a value that can change.
Your variables are created from the data provider.

Component Data

Many components expose data. For example, if a user uses the Text Input component to type text or the Gallery component to select a visual, these text and visual values can be found in the application and acted upon.

Use Dynamic Data

Whether your data comes from a variable, the data provider or a component, you can use it and create actions accordingly. 
The first step is to retrieve the source of this data (ID_SOURCE).

Get the source of the data

If your data comes from a component 

Select the component and in the Properties window, double-click on its name. Paste and save the resulting formula.
For example:
Text-input9142 -> 5f903e615ccbd73fda000453

5f903e615ccbd73fda000453 is the identifier of this component(ID_SOURCE)

If your data comes from internal data provider

Click Project and select the data provider. In the Properties window, double-click its name. Paste and save the resulting formula.
For example: : 
DataProvider -> dataprovider : 5f903e615ccbd73fda000453

5f903e615ccbd73fda000453 is the identifier of the data provider (ID_SOURCE).

If your data comes from external source

Select the HTTP component and in the Properties window, double-click its name. Paste and save the resulting formula.
For example: 
HTTP9651 -> 5fb7bb461bf21f4ba20004c7

5fb7bb461bf21f4ba20004c7 is the identifier of this external source (ID_SOURCE).
