Item Description
Feature Send dynamic emails from a bot.

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

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.

Enhancement 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.

Thank you for keeping us informed everyday, really apppreciated.

Regarding the Enhancement on Deck View:

I may have missed something regarding that point I highlighted few weeks ago about nested columns:

Can you tell us if something is planned to be make it fitter than it is here ?
