Thank you for reaching out to us! First of all about the Admin Dashboard Login.
The Admin button on the index page of demo is set there to illustrate the admin functionality. As you don’t need your users to be able to access it, you can just remove it from there.
Now how to login as admin. You should open your app in Bubble.is -> go to Data section - > App Data -> Create a New Database Entry, type of thing “User” -> enter data for your admin account and set the is_admin to yes. Please look at the video for more details:
Now to your interest’s questions. There are two places where platform admin can take fees. Fees can be added during loan offer calculations. And then fees can also be taken from investors returns (we’ll update the documentation to include it).
Loan fees (1st location) - This loan calculator is for displaying live results in the front end. Figures here should be same with those eventually used for the selected loan when being finalized in the back end. (Note that Loan A is for first loan offer and Loan B is for second loan offer. The difference is in the loan terms):
Loan Fees (2nd location):
This is where the investors share of the larger loan is calculated. Admin can deduct a fee expressed as a decimal fraction and it would automatically mean investor will receive all returns less that fraction. For example, if an investor puts in $10 for a $100 loan, their share is 10% stored as 0.1 in the database. If the admin wants to take a fee of 1% of the investor’s returns, then admin will remove 0.001 (1% of 10%) from the investor’s share.
These above are just the examples. There are different ways the Admin can deduce fees, it’s up to you to decide and to calculate.
I understand that setting up the template can be overwhelming at the moments. But ultimately, the workflows reflect your business model. So if you have it set with your team and with the lawyers all you have to do is to transform it in the list of simple calculations that could be applied in Bubble.
We’re working hard to supply our customers with documentation and we take into account every support request. Bubble can seem difficult at the first but it pays you back with the speed of development.
Please let me know if you have other questions.
