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.

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.

It could be more straight forward to select slice or table on Event setting rather than “Run a task” setting.

Once we create new BOT, first we need to select table name for Event, then select Slice for Task settings. I understand what this setting will do for us, but I m afraid some of creators will get confused.

See inclusion diagram

I m not testing BOT for the moment, but naturally question will come what is going to happen if the event happens on the table record, which is not included within the slice?
My assumption is the BOT will not run the process.

This is one of the simple reson that it is better that the slice can be seleted on the BOT setting, rather than task.
