Happy Friday! This week we have a couple of new features to announce. The first one is one that will make Google Admins creating and managing AppSheet apps very happy. The second will make App Creators want to improve their formula and expression writing game.
Welcome to a new feature update! The team has been working hard on new features for apps and App Editor. We'll share one new feature announcement and a couple of recent releases, which are favorites of the team and have been used in thousands of apps so far.
As the summer starts, we want to remind you of features that we recently added to the platform. Today is mainly about Actions. But there are other goodies as well!
Let's say you have an app that keeps track of employee training hours and you want to be alerted when any employee accumulates over 10 hours of training. Or you have a client management app and would like to get a weekly report of all customers contacted. What if you want to automatically update your customer's information on Salesforce.com when your field technicians perform a job?
You can achieve all of those things by adding automation to your AppSheet apps. By adding workflow rules to your app, you can define the rules that trigger a specific behavior and connect with multiple services like Email, PDF generation, SMS, and Webhooks.
On April 27 we conducted a webinar to walk App Creators through the different options available in the AppSheet Platform to automate tasks. Check the video out!

Project management is a limited endeavor if your team needs to be mobile but your data isn't. That's why thousands of AppSheet app creators use AppSheet to transform the data in their Google Sheets, Smartsheet, and Excel spreadsheets into powerful mobile apps.
We recently held two webinars that showed how to get started with AppSheet and build project management apps. The apps we used during the webinar are available for you to copy them and see how they were created. Check the two videos and find the link to the app at the end of this post!
Are you reading this on your smartphone right now? If not, is your smartphone within five feet of where you’re at? Studies have found that the average smartphone user spends about 195 minutes per day looking at that little screen, and this is a strong reflection of the present and future mobile workforce. “By 2020, the number of U.S. mobile workers will grow to 105.4 million, a jump from 96.2 million in 2015,” found IT research firm International Data Corporation (IDC). “Also by that year, mobile workers will make up 72.3 percent of the total U.S. workforce.”
Making sales teams work smarter, not harder.
While field teams are the on the rise, it is becoming more and more crucial to empower these employees with customized mobile apps. This innovation of working efficiently with optimal communication is a top priority for Antwain Jordan, Sales Execution Coordinator for Spring Mobile which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of GameStop and serves as the premier wireless retailer for AT&T and Cricket Wireless operating in over +1500 locations. “Part of my job is to take the everyday sales and our onboarding process and simplify them by removing redundancy from the process”, explains Antwain. “Since we have partnered with AppSheet, we have developed and currently use 5 applications on a regular basis to help us accomplish that.”
