Hi AppSheet Community!
As outlined in recent announcements, your Community will have a new home later this month. My name is Lauren, and as part of the Google Cloud Community team with @Andrew_Biernat and @wturney, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to help support you as we make this transition.
To help ensure a seamless experience, we’ll be sharing important information and “sneak peeks” into your new home before the move. In this post, we’ll focus on key features and how to quickly find what you’re looking for, as well as list common questions and answers. Let’s get started.
AppSheet Q&A is an open discussion forum, similar to how you use the Questions page today, where you can ask or answer any questions about creating an app or using the AppSheet platform.
All members of the Community can participate in these discussions, and you’ll have the ability to “like” posts and comments, as well as accept a response to your post as a solution, as shown in the example in the screenshot image below.
When you’re drafting a new post, existing content recommendations are shown to help prevent duplicate posts. You can also use advanced search filters to find posts by a range of modifiers, including labels (previously “tags”), keywords, content type, author, date, or if they have an accepted solution or not. More on how this works can be seen in this blog here.
Similar to the Feature Requests page, this is where all members of the Community can provide feature requests and ideas to help make AppSheet even better.
What’s new is that we’ll be rolling out a revamped, formalized process for how feature requests are curated, reviewed, implemented, and communicated with you. Existing feature requests that have been shared on this site will be carried over to the new platform and each idea will have a status indicating where they stand in the process.
Each user can add only one vote (“like”) per idea, but now, there is no limit to the number of ideas a user can vote for.
Tips & Resources
Tips & Resources is where you can find tips and tricks, top resources, and educational content to help you create successful apps with AppSheet. This section has two primary areas:
Tips & Tricks: this is an open discussion forum for all Community members where you can find and share knowledge about building apps with AppSheet. This forum is similar to how you use the Tips & Tricks today, in which all existing content will be migrated over to the new platform. Share “likes” to show your appreciation for tips members share.
Education: this page contains a library of expert-curated, educational resources on using AppSheet. Managed by the AppSheet team, the content you’ll find here includes learning resources, tutorial videos, and case studies at any stage of your app creator journey, whether you’re just starting out or you’ve already built a number of apps.
Release Notes & Announcements
In this section of the Community, you can access AppSheet Feature Release Notes and see the latest announcements, including platform updates and Community news.
To stay up-to-date, you can subscribe to receive notifications and/or email updates. You can receive notifications by subscribing to all release notes and announcements, or you can narrow it down by subscribing to only specific product areas using labels. More on managing notifications and subscriptions can be seen here.
This is a new area dedicated to all AppSheet events, including a revamped series of Office Hours with AppSheet experts beginning in February 2022, as well as meetups to showcase app creators and their apps. Subscribe to the Events space to know what’s coming up next and to see sessions available on-demand.
The last area we want to highlight is Community Resources. Here, you can access helpful articles on topics like managing your account, contributing to the Community, or updating notifications.
There’s also a dedicated forum where you can ask questions and provide feedback about your experience in the AppSheet Community. We deeply value what you have to say and appreciate any thoughts you may have so we can continue to improve your experience and help you achieve your goals with AppSheet.
