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.

We tested Show type column for both image and video, but actual email to receive is looking like this. Seems to be yet or not working.

Thank you for letting us know. Let me double-check with the team and get back to you ASAP!

Hi @tsuji_koichi, since that is a Detail View, you will need to enable the “Include Show columns in detail views” setting in UX > Options

Could you confirm whether this is enabled?

Hi @Sarmad_Hashmi
Thank you for your advice.
I tested again, yes, it went through. I receive email for show/video, show/image type column like this.

Snag_1e298402

The show/image was displayed in tiny size. Attempted to control through format rule to resize to larger, but format rule did not affect the size on dynamic email. Is there a plan to control size of image (for show type) through format rule?

In the meantime, the email body on dynamic email seems to be collapsed (bug?)

Raw html codes are shown.

The original bot setting is like this

Just copied your sample app.

Hi @tsuji_koichi, I tried copying the sample app from scratch and still can’t seem to reproduce the issue you are seeing.

Do you mind sharing this app with me as a co-author at mhashmi@appsheet.com and I can take a closer look?

I just sent quick mail to you.
