INTERSECT()

Are you a list person? If so, then you probably have a few lists running with common items that you wish you could manage differently. We’d like to give you a bit of sanity back by introducing you to our INTERSECT() function

Whether you're managing inventory or events, you’re going to want to go straight to your editor and add this function. It takes all the elements which are common to both of the original lists and stores them in another list. The newly created list becomes a summary of the elements that we similar. 

Our community has had a few days to work with this feature and has some great suggestions on how to implement this new expression. To learn more stop by the AppSheet Community. 

Table Sorting in Dashboards

A small but mighty feature, this update allows Tables displayed in Dashboards to be sorted by their headers. Previously, Tables that displayed in Dashboards were relatively static. This new capability, however, provides a more interactive way to present your data. 

Table Sorting In DashboardsWe introduced this update in our new and improved Office Hours this week. If you missed the session, we've got you covered.   

ICS Calendar Attachments  

We're expanding the options available for the file types that can be sent in your workflows. The latest addition is the ICS Calendar (also known as .ics) which allows you to send calendar invitations in an email message. If you've received a meeting request or event invitation in an email, you've used .ics before. 

This workflow update can be used for sending calendar information for everything from formal meeting requests to surprise party invites. Information sent in your .ics file can include location, date, time and more. To learn more about working with workflows, review our workflow support series

How will you use these new features in what you’re creating? Stop by the AppSheet community and let us know!

Happy app building!
