I would like to explain to my users the conditions under which the page I have designated as the “starting view” or “launch page.” I sat down to begin to write the explanation and then realized that I don’t understand it well myself. So, I checked the documentation:
This well-written and concise page (thanks for all you do, @Steve!) explains how to designate the launch page but it doesn’t go into the conditions that will cause an app to go to the last page that was being used on it instead of the starting view. I actually use the app I am working a lot for my own benefit and the launch page rarely comes up. I think that’s because the app returns the user to the last page that was being worked on instead of the launch page when the period of time between use is short.
I wonder if I could get some clarification regarding the conditions that lead the app to ignore the launch page and take the user to the “last” page vs. those that cause the launch page to be shown. I know you are very busy, Steve, but if you could add that kind of explanation to your documentation page, I’d really appreciate it.
P.S. If possible, I think it would good for AppSheet to decide on either “starting view” or “launch page” and stick with that term. I occasionally notice situations in AppSheet where there are multiple ways of referring to a single function; a practice which can cause confusion and make it difficult to find discussion of the topic in this community forum.
