I need to delete several QuickStart apps that have appeared, inexplicably, in my account. But when I delete them they keep reappearing.

How do I get rid of them???

@RezaRaoofi Ive tried deleting the table they were based on (that was generating errors anyway), and also moving them to deployed status before attempting to delete them again. No joy - they reappear in the QuickStart list :frowning:

They aren’t “real” apps — they are something we are trying to make it easier to create a new app from a spreadsheet. We have it on for some users and off for others to see if it is useful. It sounds like this is proving annoying for you?

@praveen Thumbs-down

I think the Sample apps page on AppSheet website is intuitive and clear enough for a quick start; no need to occupy My apps page with a few random QuickStart templates that are not real apps.

@praveen Well, now that I know they are new feature, its less worrying where these apps came from. I think in the right context, maybe to test something out quickly, they could be useful, but FIVE apps? Also, the naming of the apps caused confusion, plus the fact that the data tables they were based on had errors. Thats why I wanted to delete them.

Yes, it’s really meant for new users on their first day of using AppSheet. They sign in and land up on the My Apps page. This feature tries to show them their most recent spreadsheets “imagined” as an app. if they click on it, that creates the app.

We’ll tweak it so that it doesn’t show up for more experienced users.

@praveen A reasonable idea.


I know you have turned this off for me but is it really a good idea. New users may try making apps from sheets where the data is definitely not set up in a way suitable for making an app.

One of my sheets that was in my list was a



I dont think It would have made a very good app.
