Bug fixes

Item Description
Bug Formatting rules should now update more frequently when the data is updated.

Deployed to 30% of free users.

Bug Fixed issue with backdrop card view onClick event that was only getting triggered if the photo was clicked. Now the entire card triggers the onClick event.

To implement this change on existing apps, you will need to change to a different view type, then back to the card view type.

Note: This will reset your existing card view configuration. Back up your configuration before proceeding.

Bug Bug fix for rebranding Sample Apps to Templates. The route samples/?appGuid was not working properly for users inside the rollout. Now samples?appGuid as templates?appGuid is supported.
Bug Fixed an issue with the testing of bots that used a dynamic email task (preview). Enums default to button display mode in dynamic emails now.
Bug When AppSheet app is created using the Google Sheets Add-on, a default app folder is now created in Google Drive.

Preview announcements

The AppSheet Preview program lets app creators try out new app features that are not yet fully supported. Learn how to participate in the AppSheet preview program for app client features.

  • Update deck view row heights depending on content available

    Currently, deck view rows have a fixed height regardless of how much content you have. With this update, AppSheet adjusts the row size to fit the form factor based on what columns you’re displaying. For more information, see the community announcement.

What's currently available in the Preview program?

Item Description
Feature Send dynamic emails from a bot.

Configure a bot to send a dynamic email to one or more recipients based on an event. Dynamic email leverages dynamic email in Gmail (using AMP) and enables users to interact directly with your app in the email rather than clicking out to view the AppSheet app in a separate window.

For more information, see Sending dynamic email from a bot and the community announcement.

Feature Table view

Table View now supports freezing the first column while scrolling horizontally. For details, see Freezing the first Column of a Table View - in Preview Program.

Feature Chart Editor

App Creators can now make use of our new chart editor and the new and improved charts it can create. Learn more.

Feature Detail views

Rich text formatting is now available in Detail views. For details, see this announcement in the community.

I see this error to often. It feels like a bug to me.

Au contraire!

does not work but

does. What could account for this?

Hi @Kirk_Masden

For your guidance

Thanks for pointing me to this. I hadn’t seen it yet. But that doesn’t alter the point I’m making. @Liz_Lynch is saying that “samples?appGuid as templates?appGuid is supported” but I’m saying “not for me.”

Everything is boiled down to the point Appsheet update on new feature are matter of short words. Not explaining anything detailed .
