Searching the whole App

If you like to know where in the App you are using a column, you can use the App Documentation.

In this you can search for text.
For example. You have created a Virtual column and you think you could delete it.
But … perhaps you have used it in a workflow rule? Or in a format rule?
Simply search for the column in the App Documentation to find out where it is used.

I’ve bookmarked the URL for the “documentation page” of a rather large app I’m working on. I keep it open in a separate tab when I’m working on the app. It’s very useful for searching, etc.

Search has been improved. Please see the following report from @Jamie:

This won’t eliminate the need to refer to “App Documentation” in all situations, but in many cases it should be quicker and easier.

Dear AppSheet people:

  1. Thank you
  2. Since you’ve added this great feature, why not announce it? I haven’t seen anything on the “What’s new” page.

May be it’s not official yet :slightly_smiling_face:

Perhaps so. :slight_smile:
