We're adding new and improved features this week to the AppSheet platform. Spec returns with more categories and includes more images powered by the Noun Project. We also added an update to the New App launcher and a couple of user engagement features for your app. Check the new features below.
This week we added a couple of improvements to Spec.
First, we added more categories based on app usage, making sure that Spec covers more and more scenarios and gets better at understanding the types of apps you want to build.
Second, we added an integration with Noun Project so the nouns in your app have an accompanying placeholder image as well. You'll notice it as you add some more commonly known nouns.
We also let you select multiple items from the selection box. This means you can list things in the same text box and then have the ability to select them from the list by holding the shift key in your keyboard.
This is a significant step for our platform, and we'd love to get your feedback. Please go to www.appsheet.com/spec and play with it and give us feedback in the tool itself or in community.appsheet.com
You'll see a Notify button at the top left of the editor menu. This takes you straight to the broadcast notifications pane. Useful if you need to send a quick message to your app users on their devices.
Track app invites:
In the Users pane, along with the whitelist, you'll see if each person has responded or not to the app invitation by signing up for an AppSheet account. if not, you can click a link to send them a reminder.
Get app user feedback:
We learn so much from the feedback we get from App Creators across the world, and we want to make sure you have access to similar resources so your apps get better and better through the feedback from your users. Starting next week, new apps created in the platform will include a feedback section for app users. This feature is available in secure plans only when the user enables security. This option can be turned off via the UX > Options menu
