Slideshow View is when you look at a single row of data in AppSheet. It enables you to scroll through all available records, one by one, while in that view. We've enhanced Slideshow View so you can provide a richer app experience to your users. You can edit the details of a slideshow view by navigating to Advanced Editor > UX > New View
So, what's new in the Slideshow View? Lots!
If your app uses multiple tables that are connected to one other via references, Inline Views will show the related items in the Slideshow View. Choose how many related records to show in the view through the Nested Rows option in Slideshow View (the number can be 0 if you don't want to show any related records).
With Inline Views, you can view all the related records or even create a new related record from within the same view. In more technical words, you'll be creating a relational database with AppSheet and Inline Views will help you see the data directly in your main views. Learn more.
You can now write expressions within the Initial Value section. You can do this by navigating to Advanced Editor > Data > Column Structure. The result of the expression will update dynamically as you are entering data in the app. Nifty!

We added more functions so you can write more complex expressions in your apps. The newest additions are math functions:
