Welcome back to Feature Friday! This week we are proud to announce AppSheet's new integration capabilities that make it easier for other services—or even other AppSheet apps—to communicate with your apps.
We are also happy to announce our first dedicated Zapier integration which makes it so simple to define the type of actions you want to trigger with incoming integrations to your app.
You can now integrate thousands of external services to AppSheet applications. AppSheet integrations rely on a powerful API for both incoming and outgoing communications. The API can be used to add, delete, and update table records as well as invoke any actions defined in the app.
What are some uses for the integration feature?
Integration is particularly powerful when you need to "inform" an AppSheet app of a change that happened elsewhere and want to use the new information to change the data in your app. For example:
There are thousands of other possibilities: from external services to AppSheet apps, and from AppSheet apps to external services.
We'll keep sharing ideas and best practices about integrations in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned!
