Link to App through Workflow.

Is it possible to include a link to an AppSheet app when a workflow is triggered? I’d like to introduce this into a Task app, where the person receiving the task in their email could just tap on a link to take them straight to the task app.

Yes you can do that. For example you can add this into the Email Body.

<a href="<<CONCATENATE(“https://www.appsheet.com/start/xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx”,LINKTOROW([KeyColumn],“YourViewName”))>>">Link to the Task where the xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx is your app ID.

It appears I am link deficient. Here’s the code that I put into the Workflow email body:

<a href="<<CONCATENATE(“https://www.appsheet.com/start/TASKS-396986”,LINKTOROW([EZ ID],“TASKS”))>>">Link to the Task

When I send a test, the email shows up fine, the link looks good in the email, but I keep getting this error message:

The Task-396986 is wrong. You should use the long ID. You can find it from the link in the editor. . or if you choose the full screen preview you can see the ID from the URL.

OK, I got it. I used the link from the Full Screen. That’s awesome! Thanks for your help!

Workflow rules make some of these conveniently available as “Template Variables”. See help.appsheet.com - Template Variables
