If time management is important in your application development, there are a number of different ways to organize how that time is segmented. The EOWEEK() expression, for example, determines what you would like to set as your last day of the week. You can learn more about this expression and comb through a variety of examples here. 

Create Sample Apps

During this week’s Office Hours we received a lot of questions surrounding how to create sample apps for your team. The simple process takes six steps: 

  1. Make sure your app has been marked as Deployed.

  2. Open your app in the Editor.

  3. Select the Manage > Author tab.

  4. Click "Team Work".

  5. Set "Make this a team sample?" to checked.

  6. Click "Change Visibility".

Note that this functionality is only available in certain plan types. Please contact sales@appsheet.com for more information. 


Whether you're managing inventory, shipping packages or in the field, enabling barcode scanning functionality within your application is a great feature add. Before you reach for your device to start scanning, however, there are two quick steps to take. 

First, you’ll need to ensure the column type is set to “text” or “ref” in Data→ Columns. From here, scroll all the way to the far right and click the “Scan” toggle on the column you’d like to enable. Viola! You can now scan barcodes with your mobile device. If you’d like to test it out or see how other apps use this feature, click on the sample app above. 

How will you use these features in what you’re creating? Stop by the AppSheet community and let us know! Want to spend time with our team? Register for our next Office Hours session for additional Q&A. 

Happy app building!
