Update Rows in Another table

I would like appsheet to implement a Action where one can Update Rows in another Table.
Currently we can add but we cannot Update.

Currently am stuck in a few apps do to this. And not having this action makes everything 25X complex for those non programers out there. I believe the usability and flex-ability are key to keep the new user hooked.


@Steve, can we get a help file for Reference Actions? There’s only a sample app.

Non referenced. Using just formulas. Completely unconnected.

I’m confused, why was my post hidden?

You don’t need any references to run this kind of action, you just need to be able to create a list of row keys. I’m quite sure you can use this to do what you’ve described.

Hi @Marc_Dillon!

It was probably a mistake of some kind but it seems that your post got “flagged” for some reason. If we click on it, though, we can see that you provided two images showing how to use the “Data: execute an action on a set of rows” action, just what I was thinking of too.

But I also see now that @Jonathan_S is interested in a different approach.

Oh, now it seems to be visible again – hopefully to everyone, but made just to me because I clicked on it. ? ? ?

By the way, I can sympathize with @Jonathan_S’s interest in wanting something simpler. I’ve made lots of actions like this but the fact that you have to combine two actions that have to be edited separately is rather troublesome to deal with. I’m not quite sure what is needed but something that is simpler and easier for the app creator to implement would certainly be welcome. So, here’s my vote. :slight_smile:

Thanks! I’d missed it. Voted!

Not at all easily. :frowning:
