Can this be done: the user’s current latitude/longitude is determined by e.g. the browser or AppSheet Mobile app, and that value is sent to a REST API which returns a location ID, and that location ID is then used by AppSheet to select a Google Sheet record (row) so that calculations can be performed? Thanks very much.

You should be able to do that with scripting.

Thank you very much. Actually I am a member of the community!

We really should make it easy to invoke an external API and get a value from it. some kind of simple function to do this!

@Robert_Lerner, glad you’re here. It is always a surprise and a pleasure to learn about the things people create with AppSheet.
