My question is: Why is the appGuidString used in error messages? Before I get to the heart of that question, though, I think I need to explain what the appGuidString is. I looked and have not been able to find any documentations about it.
The “appGuidString” is the long number that is used in URLs to identify an app. Here’s an example of how the appGuidString is used in a URL that takes you to a sample app:
You can find the appGuidString for any app you have by going to “Links” in the “Users” menu of your editor. It is contained in the Install Link (which allows mobile users to install the app on their device) and in the Browser Link (which runs the app directly in your browser) as follows (examples are from the same sample app – not one of mine):
Now, here’s my question: Why is the appGuidString used in the following sort of error?
I checked and we can’t search our “My Apps” page with this number. Shouldn’t a name that we can search for be used in error messages?
Also, the “Links” page I mentioned above has the “Browser Link” and the “Install Link” link but there’s not a “Sample Link,” even if that app is being shared on our portfolio page as a sample.
The only way I know to get the sample link is by logging out of my main AppSheet account, logging in again with a second account, and then clicking on the app in my portfolio page. Am I missing something? Is there another way to do this?
Thanks for reading. Looking forward to feedback.
