The first six months

We can hardly believe it, but roughly six months ago AppSheet joined Google Cloud. There has been a number of activities taking place behind the scenes, and this week we held a special Office Hours to address some of the questions and concerns. A recording of the session is available, but below are the three main areas we've been focused on: 

  1. Creator Community. We continue to take in and absorb feedback from each one of you across multiple channels. The impact may not be felt immediately, but this feedback helps influence our engineering decisions and other actions we take. 
  2. Team expansion. The funny thing about a no-code platform is that you need coders to build it. We've welcomed a number of new team members to make this happen and take AppSheet to the next level. 
  3. Improvements and/or new features. In six months we've worked on over 120 new features or updates. Here's a brief overview of some of what we've worked on:

Office Hours _ June 30What we're working on next 

We have some really, really exciting developments in the works. Our engineering efforts will be focused on the following five areas: 

  1. Richness
  2. Authoring
  3. App UX 
  4. Connectors
  5. Admin

So what exactly does this mean? In short, many, if not all, of the features and updates we release this year will be focused on the above list. While we cannot provide a complete list of each and every feature we're working on with a proposed release date, we hope that this provides some clarity around the direction in which the product is heading. 

Our commitment 

We've thrown a lot of information at you, but the outstanding question is how are we going to improve communicating this all to you? Here are a few immediate steps we're taking:

  1. Feature Release Notes section in our Creator Community. The goal of this area is to behave much like a changelog, please see the category description for additional details. 
  2. A feature release summary blog post of what we've released that month. This will be posted on the last Friday of every month. 

These items are the immediate actions we're taking to improve your experience with AppSheet. Have additional suggestions or requests on how we can improve this part of your experience? Send a direct message to jennifer@appsheet.com

Happy app building!
