This is the official documentation of Forest Admin Cloud.

The CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) module in Forest Admin is accessible under the Data tab. It facilitates efficient data management, including creating, reading, updating, deleting, customizing views, and optimizing search and filtering.

Creating a record

To create a new record, go to the "Data" tab and select the desired collection. Click on the "Add" button to open a creation form. Use the Layout Editor to customize field display, show only necessary fields, and organize them for efficient data entry.

Reading records

Forest Admin simplifies record reading with a customizable table view. Use the Layout Editor to select and organize columns. Navigate records easily with pagination, adjust records per page, and access a contextual menu with a right-click. Advanced search, filtering, and sorting features make it easy to find and explore specific records in large datasets, ensuring a smooth reading experience.

Reading a specific record

Clicking on a specific record in Forest Admin opens up a myriad of views and features tailored for in-depth exploration.

Details View

The default Details View provides a detailed view of individual records. Use the Layout Editor to configure field visibility and order. Customize the presentation of data in the Details View for a focused and efficient view that suits your needs.

Summary View

The Summary View is a versatile tool that allows you to customize how you view your important data. In Layout Editor mode, you can drag and drop pre-built components like sections, fields, relationships, and actions to create a personalized view tailored to your specific needs. This gives you control over what information is most important to you. Think of it as a 360-degree view of your essential data, providing a comprehensive overview at a glance.

Explorer View

The Explore View in Forest Admin is particularly well-suited for records that have intricate relationships with depth. This view is designed to seamlessly navigate and comprehend datasets with numerous interconnections. If your records involve complex relationships and layered information, the Explore View provides a user-friendly way to delve into the details, making it an ideal choice for managing and understanding records with depth and multiple connections.


Facilitating effective teamwork, the Collaboration Tab lets you add notes dedicated to a specific record. This collaborative space promotes communication among team members, fostering a shared understanding of the record's context, history, and any pertinent details.

Activity Log

Ensuring transparency and accountability, the Activity Log meticulously tracks all admin activities related to a specific record. This log offers a detailed account of changes, providing a historical perspective on the record's lifecycle. The Activity Log is a valuable tool for auditing and maintaining a clear record of actions taken within Forest Admin.

Updating a record

Updating a Record to modify an existing record, navigate to the specific record you wish to update within the desired collection through the Data tab. Once on the record, locate and click the Update button. This action will open the update form, where, similar to the creation process, you can access the Layout Editor. Utilize the Layout Editor to personalize the view by selectively showcasing and arranging only the necessary fields, tailoring the update form to match your preferences. This ensures a streamlined and efficient data modification experience, allowing you to make precise adjustments to the record.

Deleting a record

Removing a record can be initiated in various ways, whether on a single specific record or multiple records. To commence this action, navigate to the desired collection through the "Data" tab. Once on the record or records you intend to remove, locate and activate the "Delete" option. A confirmation prompt will then appear to verify your intention to delete the record(s). Confirm your choice, and the record(s) will be permanently removed from the collection.
