Giving admin/app owner the power to add/remove information

Hi there. I'm creating a mobile application that can find the nearest office locations based on your location. 


My question is I'm looking to give the admin/app owner the capability to create new locations, delete locations and edit the information displayed. 

How would I do this? 

Any advice would be appreciated.


Hi Shaan,

Could you please provide some more details ? your question is about limiting the actions to specific role like admin\appowner?

If it is specific to the role performing actions than you can create a screen to add\update\delete and set a role for the screen . Assign the role to the user to whom you want to give access on this screen.

Hi Pramod 

Basically I'm trying to understand how to create something in the app that can add/remove locations and edit the information displayed.

You can user any of the below two forge component to pick location latitude/ longitude either on map or using google auto complete input/ API

Will this let you add/remove locations from within the app?

No that's not what I'm saying, sorry if I'm not being very clear I will try again. 

I want my app owner/admin to be able to open the app and be able to add and remove saved locations. The locations are saved on the database. 

this line: "be able to add and remove saved locations" in order to be able to do this inside the app how would I do this?

Yes, you canuse blocks from these components and get location lat long in you application and add in your own entity.

If you want to use google place API then you can use service/ server action from google places api integration component.

Sorry if I'm not sounding clear. Basically the office locations have already been stored in the app and I can display them based on my current location. 

However I need there to be an option inside the app to add new locations and delete locations. This is what I'm trying to understand how to add.
