Even though I’ve been on this forum quite a while and post fairly frequently, I sometimes have difficulty choosing the proper “tag” for my post. First of all, here’s a list of the available tags:
Many of these tags are self-explanatory, particularly if you are familiar with the AppSheet platform. If, however, you are new to AppSheet, you might think that “references” refers to materials published on the web by AppSheet that we can “refer” to as we build our apps.
The distinction between “UX” and “view” can be difficult to understand even if you are familiar with AppSheet:
When one creates a new “view” in an app, one does it in the “UX” part of the editor. So, when one has has a question that relates to a “view” does one use the “view” tag or the “UX” tag or both? I just reported about a problem with how my app displays on a browser:
I was required to chose a tag in addition to bugs-issues-errors. I chose “UX” but wasn’t sure if I chose the right one. That prompted me to look for a page on this forum that explains the tags but I could find one. I think a nice page explaining all of the tags and what kinds of issues should go with what tags would not only help people who participate in this forum; it would also serve as an introduction to key aspects of the AppSheet forum. In the process of creating a page about the tags and how to chose them, it would be nice to have some discussion about “missing” tags: tags that we need but that are not currently available. For example, I have written about the need for an “Editor” tag:
Finally, shouldn’t there be a section of this forum or community site that tells people how to post, how to deal with friction, etc.? I remember seeing something about when to flag a post and when not to, etc. but I can see a menu that takes me directly to such topics.
Thanks for your consideration!
