I am trying to create a workflow attachment using a template in Google docs that includes columns. For some reason, the workflow ignores the columns and instead prints everything in one long column. Is there a way around this?

Are you able to take a printscreen from your template so it would be easier to find the reason?

Let’s say you have 8 bunks and 20 names (average) in bunk. Is that true?

(Zecharya Michelsohn) #5

Yes, just about

If you add four sub-tables (one column only) inside one main table (four columns) and you filter the data with the SELECT expression column by column, you are be able to do that.

I will try that! Thanks!

If you are trying to format the attachment in horizontal columns, you need to use a Table template as described in topic “Customer Template in Table Format” in this article help.appsheet.com - Email Templates

If you are trying to do something else, can you show us an example of how you want the output to appear? Email Templates help.appsheet.com

No I don’t want a table. It’s a Start expression that I want to print in columns - see the attached sample of what I want the output to show.

Our workflow templates do not support formatting your data in multiple columns like that.

The closest we can come is formatting the values in a single column.

You may need to find another tool if a multi-column format is essential.

Sorry about that.

hmm. Thanks for responding. I was afraid that would be the answer.

I’m definitely not interested in finding another tool though! AppSheet can do anything!

How many records you will have?

(Zecharya Michelsohn) #13

It should all fit easily on one page. About 80 names total, in 7-8 bunks.

Is the names in one bunk fixed?

(Zecharya Michelsohn) #15

The names of the campers need to pull from the live data. The names of the actual bunks can perhaps be fixed, if needed. How does that help?
