Bug fixes

Item Description
Bug Do Proper Reverse Reference Identification for Cascading Delete to Avoid 'Null Ref' Exceptions on Delete

This bug fix ensures that only valid Reverse Reference fields are used when performing Cascading Delete. Previously, we sometimes used a field that was not a valid Reverse Reference when performing Cascading Delete. This could sometimes lead to a Null Ref exception when a record was deleted and we attempted to find and delete all of its child records. This bug fix will be rolled out to all users over time.

Bug Fix an issue with the slider that was displaying NaN% when value is NULL and label wrapping.

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.
