Dear Community Members,
One of the things that sets AppSheet ahead of its competition is this Community. I have been involved with AppSheet apps for over two years and felt the importance of this Community from day one.
All of you do a great job posting your questions and problems and the others are excellent at responding, discussing and even solving issues. Believe it or not, for those who are just reading the posts, simply following the discussion is a tremendous benefit to better understanding the system and learning new or different ways to build features into our apps. Please continue posting and responding!!
However…(you knew it was coming)… AppSheet also depends on our input to help guide them forward. A company cannot KNOW what application features are needed. They need input from the industries. AppSheet is one of very few companies I have felt is truly interested in what its customers want and need. Certainly AppSheet has its own master plan for the future but they also have an invested interest to fold in the issues and suggestions we developers raise in the Community. They spend a lot of time and effort to extract that information from us but they ultimately depend on our input on the Bug posts and Feature Requests to help prioritize those items into their master plan.
So, I appeal to you, the Community Members, to not just post and respond to the General questions. Also, review daily the Bugs and Feature Requests. When a posted issue is also impacting (or has impacted) you, note that with a reply on the post. If you agree that a listed Feature Request would be helpful to you and your apps, apply a vote on it and reply to the post if you have anything to add. This doesn’t mean to start replying on every post. Just those that you can meaningfully contribute to from experience or have information to share.
By helping AppSheet understand what it is we need in our apps, we help them prioritize what’s needed in the development Industry but most of all…we help ourselves. Otherwise, we get what is THOUGHT as needed.
Good luck with your apps and keep posting!
