Display a group of items in a list layout.

The List Component is a special type of Collection Component that allows you to display items in a list. You can use this layout when your primary focus is displaying data, especially when images are not available or necessary.

To set up your List Collection:

  1. In the Layout Editor of your app, click the plus (+) symbol to add a new component.

  2. Find Collections in the menu and select List.

  3. Choose what Data Source it should use.

  4. Give the collection a Title.

  5. Customize your collection with Data and Design.
