I am quite new to AppSheet, I am trying to build my first app, but I am still trying to get my head around some of the concepts.
I come from a MS Powerapps background, so while some things are incredibly easier in AppSheet, for some others I find myself clueless about what to do.
I am trying to build a medical appointment app where the medical team would log appointments with each patient. I have a Patients primary view and an Appointment view which references Patients.
So far the only way to record an appointment is by:
- Select a patient
- Go to patient details
- From the inline appointment table, click add new (which will bring the user to the appointment form)
- Fill in the form and save
So my question is, would it be possible to directly access the appointment form view and from there choose a patient and record the appointment?
As I understood, it seems to me that the only way for the user to get to a ref form view is by first accessing the parent view.
For my use case, it would be a lot easier if I could have a shortcut for the appointment form in the bottom menu, something like:
- Click the appointment in the bottom menu (which would bring the user to the appointment form)
- Fill in the form and click save
is it possible?
Thanks in advance, and let me know if is there any other information I could provide.
