Today as part of the Power 2020 series blog 14, we will try to understand Collections in Canva Apps.
The collection is a pack of items and it creates a copy of the data source. By using collections, users can store and manage data in the canvas app. Collection returns a data source as a table.
Functions used in Collections:
The Collect function helps to add records in Collection.
Collect( DataSource, Item, …)
DataSource (Required) – Name of data source that you want to add data. If the data source is not available, a collection will be created.
The Clear function removes all the records from the collection. Only records will remove, columns will not be removed from the collection.
Clear( Collection )
The ClearCollect function is a combination of Clear and Collect functions. This function will remove all records from the collection and then add the records to the collection.
ClearCollect( Collection, Item, … )
Collection(Required) – Name of collection you want to clear and add records.
Item(s)(Required) – Records or tables to add to the collection.
