I have this idea of making an app in B4A using Google Drive.

It is for Apartment (Housing building) collection and expenses, with due list, defaulters, high expenses etc.
The app has two settings for 'Accountant' and 'Members'

In Accountant setting the inputs are done in B4A app and saved in sqlite and csv/json is generated and saved in GDrive as a zip file.
In Member setting the csv/json zip file is downloaded from GDrive and presented all reports, views etc. with search facility.

No two way communication of data here. Members can send WhatsApp or make call to Accountant or other members. Only Accountant can update the database.

Now the zip file in GDrive needs to be shared (public / or each members email) and that shared link added in each member app setting. This can be done manually by Accountant and link shared.

In this pandemic time most people income has reduced and maintaining a server cost is very difficult, at least in India. (One of my friend of another Forum had to ask for help the cost of server). So I was thinking more on the line of using GDrive as free server, where the data flow in one directional and small.

Note : only Android B4A here as many members do not have computers.

Do you mean a rental tracker?
A few years ago I created a very basic My Tenant app. That time I am not good in B4A, PHP and JSON. I updated it once and it has been abandoned till now. I don’t use GDrive but MySQL database in a shared hosting.

Not in that sense. Let me give some background.

An apartment society has rule for each member to be accountant for one year.
Members are not 'programmers' or have any iota of programming.
Members know Whatsapp, Facebook uses at most, and any app which is similar.

Accountant has to collect monthly cash subscription and give receipt.
He/she has to maintain due list
Pay expenses for cleaning, repair etc. as and when required
Has to maintain expenses list.
At the end of the year, has to give collection and expenses statement with fund balance, for next member to start with.

Keeping or maintaining a server is like overkill for them both from point of view of data and knowledge.

But each members wants to know the status of his/her due and also where the funds are going.
So I was thinking of an app which will help Accountant to maintain all records in his/her phone itself.
The app will create a zip file of data and put in user's G Drive folder, periodically.

Here, I think the app can not automatically create a shared link of the the zip file, so I was planning to manually guide /help here.

The same app with members, put this shared link and it shows various reports/ statements from the zip file data.

Looks simple, but I have not being able to do it till now. So I thought requesting Saif is best option than forgetting it :)

Manage the server yourself and give them an app to read data and one for the yearly manager for his/her duties.
Sell it as a Sass (software as a service). Each member pays an yearly fee (eventually as part of their apartments expences) and the manager in charge pays you (so you need just one invoice).
Then look for another similar group...well, you know what comes next. :)

So, I am trying to help members with coming up a simple and free solution, if possible.

Hi @sfsameer . I've seen your team is doing now web apps with B4J, and that's great.
Maybe you can try to make some web maker database driven. (like some php generator apps), althouht I think it's a very ambitious project... but... I've seen most of your projects are.
I will try to explain it...
- You have a B4J app, where you enter your database parameters, and the app reads all the tables in your database.
- Then you choose for every table what want to do: add, delete, insert... or not to show it.
- You can set some relations between tables
- You chose some kind of theme or color scheme...
- Then automatically generate a CRUD web for that database
- More advanced features could be choose a users table to make login, table permissions based in users, etc...

It's amazing the things you're doing with B4X¡¡¡
