COVID-19 Community Support App
We have created a community support app template that local communities can use to organize their efforts to support those in need. This app is slightly different than a typical sample app in that it is designed to be simply copied and get community organizers setup up and running immediately without the need to learn the AppSheet platform prior. Most customization of the app can be done inside the app itself! Simply follow the instructions on the left side of the page when you view the sample app below. Of course you are always welcome to make changes and make the app even better! Watch a walk-through of the app here.
The app at its core allows users to make requests for help and have helpers from the community fulfill those requests.
This app is built on the appsheet.com platform and requires SSO for connections to this app. If you have been granted access to this app, you can SSO authenticate using any of the following providers:
3 different user roles are supported:
- Coordinator: Users that can see and manage all requests and manage roles in the app.
- Helper: Users that can see and accept requests that have been submitted by the Requesters.
- Requesters: Users that can make requests to Helpers of the app.
When users open the app for the first time they can either make a request or sign up to be a helper. Coordinators can promote Helpers to the Coordinator role. The app has a built in reputation system as a mechanism for coordinators to prevent abuse.
Additional Details about this app can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vTQeNpqa6kXqBnrT4_8i81bJkoifOvPUETk3niM2N9nxMbGoC6gVVwFj8ozBY2ykgqWdB2vzpb2u8OD/pub
The app is still a work in progress and communities are encouraged to copy this app and make changes to enhance their workflows. The app was designed to have any community get setup in under half an hour. Caveats
We readily admit that the app is probably not “finished” and there are other apps and other ways to do this.
This app is released to the community. As such we kindly ask that you not email firstname.lastname@example.org with technical issues, and instead use community.appsheet.com and this apps comment thread to do the same. Thank you for understanding!
