Data types

All objects and some selected fields in the template are explained below. Please refer to our Bubble Best Practices document for guidance on how the Bubble database should be structured.

All data types and a few select fields are explained below. A good general rule to follow is that you shouldn't delete any fields that are included with the template and instead only add new ones.

These fields can be used to see what the UI of a page looks like with given types of data, which is helpful when you want to focus on the design and ignore the content. Building this way is also great when the designer isn't familiar with the data structures for a particular design.
