How it works

To get started, you just need a Softr and Airtable/Google Sheets accounts (Softr and Airtable have free plans, which will do fine as a starting point in your project). After proceeding with the template, you’ll just need to import the template’s database into your Airtable/Google Sheets account, and that’s it. You can now publish your app and invite users to register and start posting and interacting with others.

Proceed with the template and have your online forum ready in minutes.


Yes, you can remove the public signup page and add users through invites.

As soon as you click the Use the template button, you'll be immediately taken to Softr studio and can start working on the template. If you don't have a Softr account, you'll be prompted to register first (a Free account will work just fine).

All the Softr templates are completely free of charge and can be used with any of the Softr subscription plans. However, Free and Starter plans have a limitation on the number of application users, so you might need to consider a higher subscription plan if you need to have full Memberships access.

How YSYS's FoundersDoor runs their online community of entrepreneurs on Softr

I like the diversity of templates that are available and the thoughtfulness that has been taken in making the building process as simple as possible for non-coders.
