Features & enhancements

Item Description
Enhancement Eliminate the WorksheetBulkAccess Option from the app template and the editor

The WorksheetBulkAccess option, which affected applications that use Google Sheets, was previously enabled for virtually all applications. The optimizations that were enabled when the WorksheetBulkAccess option was set have now been enabled for all applications using Google Sheets.

The WorksheetBulkAccess option has been eliminated as a configurable option in the editor because it is now always enabled.

Feature Send dynamic email from a bot (Coming soon!)

The Preview release of this feature is coming soon! Configure a bot to send a dynamic email to one or more recipients based on an event. Dynamic email leverages dynamic email in Gmail (using AMP) and enables users to interact directly with your app in the email rather than clicking out to view the AppSheet app in a separate window.

For more information, see Sending dynamic email from a bot.
