How to use templates

I am new to Xamarin. I have done a couple of smaller projects (2-3 pages, one table). I have a new project that is a great candidate for a shell app. It will have 20 pages, will consume data from a transactional database (cloud hosted) but also have an offline datastore (SQLite). Right now, I just want to get the local version up and running. The template for Shell App generates an IDataService and a MockDataStore. That is a great place to start - but how do I have more than one table? I am a little confused how I would use that. What I would love to see is a template generated shell app that just adds another table (and corresponding list,detail views along with view models. For example, the simple "todo" sample but add a contact table to assign todo tasks to would be perfect. Thanks in advance for your help.

    What do you mean you want to add another table?
    Do you want to display server ListView on a single page or do you want to create several database tables?

    The template for Shell App generates an IDataService and a MockDataStore.

    Which template are you using? Shell doesn't contain these value types.
