Features & Enhancements

Item Description
Feature New MIME type column for Folder-backed tables.

All new Folder-backed tables will have a MIME type column. Regenerating the structure for existing Folder-backed tables will result in a MIME type column being added.

Feature Barcode scanning is no longer supported on older Android versions.

Until now, we displayed a warning message stating that an upgrade was required to maintain barcode scanning support for older versions of Android. As of today, support for barcode scanning on older Android versions is disabled. Now, a message is displayed that states you must update AppSheet to restore barcode scanning support. Deployed to all.

Note: This change does not apply to whitelabel apps; however, whitelabel apps will continue to display a warning stating that the app owner must release a new version soon.

Feature Bots are now grouped by the Table or Slice associated with the Bot's Event.
