The new AppSheet Assistant View (Beta) empowers users to interact with your app with conversational commands or questions, similar to Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant.

Assistant View Cropped

The Assistant View can help users easily pull up lists or individual entries, filtered by custom criteria, giving users a completely new way to interact with their data.

In situations where mobility and convenience is a priority, simple voice commands from the web-app or Android mobile device will quickly present the relevant record or app view (iOS support coming soon).

“Show me my customers”

(Navigates to the table called customers)

“Go to my work orders”

(Navigates to a table called orders)

“Open Elon Musk’s profile”

(Navigates to the row labeled 'Elon Musk' and displays it in a Detail View)

 

The Assistant View can also help with presenting filtered data that may not be readily accessible from existing app views. By adding one or multiple conditions in your command, you can quickly access filtered results or initiate specific actions.

“Show me my nearby customers with open orders”

(Navigate to the Nearby Customers Slice table and display rows where order Status column equals 'Open')

“Go to my work orders with pending status”

(View the Work Orders table and display rows with Status equal to 'Pending')  

“Open Elon Musk’s profile. Send him an email” 

(Displays the Detail View record with the label 'Elon Musk', then initiates an email action to the corresponding email value)

 

This new view is currently in Beta and is in the process of being made available to all users. Look for it in your AppSheet account as a new 'View Type' in the UX section of the editor.
