We've introduced several updates during the month of December. Here's a quick summary for your reading pleasure:
We've added two new chart types --- DonutCharts and AggregateDonutCharts. Also when using AggregatePieCharts, AggregateDonutCharts, or Histograms, you can now use a variety of aggregate functions including Sum, Count, Min, Max and Average across various columns in the table
When you have a URL column type, your app will provide a link for values in that column. By default, clicking on such a link will open the page in an "in-app" browser page. We now enabled to allow the link to launch an external browser.
You can now mark specific columns to be editable directly from the row detail / slideshow view! Perfect for quickly updating the status of an entry without editing the full form.
Distance: AppSheet can now calculate the distance between a GPS location in your app (Lat/Long) and the app user. This will let you create Security filters based on distance to interest points. Very helpful to show views like: Customers Near me, Projects within 1000 Yards, Coffee Shops in my neighborhood, etc.
MySQL is now a supported data provider. To learn more about how to add MySQL as a data source for you apps, please check out this article.
Earlier in December...
You can build powerful apps that connect multiple data sources and tables with AppSheet. To help you understand those relationships, we updated the Column Structure tab.
On behalf of the AppSheet team, we wish you happy holidays. Have a great time and continue creating great apps!
