I’m used to working with mySQL and I’m new here playing about with AppSheet trying to re-create an older app I wrote years ago. Think of it as a specialized Rolodex book.
I’m reproducing my old mySQL database using Google Sheets. My question is what happens when I go to create a new record into that table in terms of a Primary Key? First of all, AppSheet doesn’t seem to let me hide the Primary Key in the Preview which I don’t want to see. But if I add a new name record, I need for it to have a new unique Primary Key of course, just like in mySQL. But it looks like it doesn’t do that if I’m seeing it correctly? How are my employees supposed to know how to create a new record AND create a unique Primary Key that gets saved back into the Sheet. Normally the end user just creates the record and doesn’t worry about the creation of a unique Primary key for that entry. How do we overcome that in AppSheet? Maybe link it to a mySQL DB instead of a Google Sheet?
