Welcome back to AppSheet’s Feature Friday where we showcase our favorite features. This quick guide will help you build your apps faster so you can focus on what matters.

Offline & sync

Did you know that applications built in AppSheet can be used offline? It’s true! And even better, this behavior can be enabled in a few easy steps. 

In your application editor, navigate to the “Behavior” tab. Once there, navigate to the “Offline/Sync” tab. From there you can toggle your settings based on your needs. It’s important to note that the “sync” behavior is a critical part of how your application updates your backend. Everyone’s needs are a little different, and because of this we recommend reviewing details outlined in our support documentation

Desktop Usage

It’s a common misconception that applications are only built for mobile devices. In reality, you can actually create applications that are compatible with a variety of devices. Whether you’re working with mobile devices in the field, tablet devices on the manufacturing floor, or desktop devices at your desk, you can access your applications. 

One of our favorite ways to work with data on desktops is the dashboard UX view type. You can learn more about working with this feature from this Feature Friday

LINKTOFORM() 

An expression that’s been trending in our Creator Community as of late is LINKTOFORM(). This expression allows you to construct a deep link to the form view named by view-name. If you’re looking for a great example of a use case working with this expression, this post in our Community is a great one. 

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

Happy app building!
