Generating & Saving Files

(Peter Dykstra (AppSheet)) #1

In addition to initiating notifications and PDF delivery from Workflows & Reports, app creators can now automatically schedule, generate & save new PDF , CSV , XML or JSON files from app data. These newly created files will be saved to your primary data source.

Using filtered triggers (like new or updated data) or scheduled delivery at specific days/times, custom formatted files can be created and saved in the app data source. This makes storing and accessing historical analytics, reports, or data backups much easier than searching email inboxes.

To schedule or trigger new file creation, create a new Workflow or Report, and set your Action as ‘Save File’.
