Multiple forms in Single app

i have created an app for inspections.

for different type of activities there are different forms or Tables or inspection forms.

i would like to create a single interface or dashboard where in there will be a list , using which the user can select which form he wants to use.

once he selects the forms , the respective form shall open & there would be save option at the end of the form.

i have created different spread sheets in google sheet & converted them in to forms in Appsheet.

Request your guidance.

Hi @Raju_Tadepally Have a look at the Rig Inspection forms sample apps.

Thank you for the sample app. However i couldn’t understand the following :slight_smile:

  1. How the “categories” sheet view is linked to “form category views” sheet ?
  2. there is no link used in "form category view "in column “App”

please guide.

I am not familiar with this method of linking to other apps but perhaps I can offer a few observations that may be helpful.

First, in order to learn from sample apps like this one, I think you should copy it so that you have unrestricted access to all part of the app and the associated table.

Second, the key seems to be the “App” column type:

If you look at the sheet, you can see the app names that are contained there:

24

If seems that the “link” is constructed automatically as a “System action,” perhaps when this column type is designated:

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Dear @Kirk_Masden , Thank you for the quick response. i hope i am not clear while conveying my point. the issue is as follows :

  1. in the Rig check Inspection forms -1 App , there is a view called " Inspections. In the inspections view under the categories i.e. Emergency response , Electrical Safety Etc.

    how the next level menus like Alarms & Shutdown , Emergency Equipment Etc. are linked ?

in laymans language , when i click the button “Emergency Response” in Inspections View , How the Alarms & shutdown / emergency equipment table is opening with out giving any link in Inspections View / Table.

To be honest, I am new to this particular technique. I’m learning through this conversation. I think, though, that I was able to figure out how it is working.


If you scroll down to the bottom of this “Inspectioins” UX, you should see the following:

If you go to “Behavior” to find the “Links” action, you should see this:

I think the answer to your question is in th LINKTOFILTEREDVIEW() expression.

As I say, I’m new to this particular technique. I haven’t tried to build an app like this myself but I think I’m on the right track.

HI @Kirk_Masden,
i found a way to get this work.
in every sheet we have to give app link & then it gets nested to the next view.
Thank you for your guidance.
