I would like to avoid clutter on my portfolio page. Currently, I have just one app on it – one that I have been developing over a long period of time and that I am using in a university class of mine:
I do, however, like to share little apps I’ve made with other AppSheet creators. To do this, I need to be able to provide a URL directly to the sample app. Recently, a method for doing this that worked began producing the following error:
Here’s another, hopefully better, method of doing the same thing.
"https://www.appsheet.com/samples/" + app name + "?appGuidString=" + appGuidString
Currently, it is also possible to replace “samples” in the first part of the URL with “templates”.
Here’s a direct link to a sample app of mine that demonstrates how to use the new INPUT() expression:
I found the app name in the url for the app that is in the browser when I’m working on the app. You can find the appGuidString for any app you have by going to “Links” in the “Users” menu of your editor. It is contained in the Install Link (which allows mobile users to install the app on their device) and in the Browser Link (which runs the app directly in your browser).
To make the link work properly you may need to adjust some settings in your app. Please see the following post regarding those settings:
Note that the url in this above post no longer works. Something has changed in the AppSheet platform. It would work, however, if I republished it with the URL in the format I’ve described here.
P.S. Even when you have an app on your portfolio page I think that a direct link is more convenient. Portfolio pages are often quite slow to load and then one has to look for the specific app on it. Direct links are much quicker for the user.
