Appsheet

What is AppSheet

AppSheet is an application that provides a no-code or low code development platform for application software, which allows users to create mobile, tablet, and web applications using data sources like Google Drive, DropBox, Office 365, and other cloud-based spreadsheet and database platforms.

It links the data that’s stored in spreadsheets with the mobile phones tablets and laptops that everyone already has, and use every day –  at a fraction of the cost of “Traditional Mobile App Development”.

AppSheet Applications

There are a variety of ways that AppSheet can be applied to help you manage data collection, whether online or offline. AppSheet also acts as a relational database. This relational database functionality offers you the ability to access a record in one sheet and track all other data related to that record in other sheets by ‘key’.

How to use AppSheet

Implementing AppSheet alongside Smartsheet allows the user to extend Smartsheet’s capability. It provides you the user with the ability to slice and dice your data, create the effect of a relational database, with a dynamic dropdown capability – see more.

Classic examples of use cases include time sheet data collection, and other data collection for example by engineers in the field, on site and even offline.

AppSheet has the special features that enable the creation of simple no code or low code mobile apps. These AppSheet apps act as portals to get access to data that lives in the Cloud, or vice versa.

AppSheet connectivity

One great advantage of using AppSheet is that not only does it collect data online and offline, but it also connects to a variety of management tools with ease. It provides a smart connection to these smart tools to ensure seamless project management.

You can send the data collected in AppSheet to your database, to Smartsheet, to your Excel, to GoogleSheets or to Airtable.

 

 

Need help to design an AppSheet app for Mobile and Desktop? 

At Smarter Business Processes we can help you to collect and distribute data in a number of different ways using AppSheet and we offer AppSheet support.

We can help you to leverage these AppSheet benefits

The benefits of using this smart data collection tool include the following:

  • Geo Location  – You can streamline workflow delivery out in the field by connecting records to an address, and creating a map view for records out in the field, e.g. when a driver is out on delivery for accuracy and ease of use in one system.
  • Scan Barcodes – AppSheet can carry and scan barcodes checking against active records in the field.
  • Scan QR Codes – QR Codes can also be scanned in the field, and they have the ability of carrying even more data than Barcodes.
  • Stay Connected – As long as the user has the app open when in use out in the field and when they reconnect they stay connected and seamlessly update their data.
  • Good Connectivity – There is excellent connectivity with mobile phones.
  • Low Code and No Code App technology – makes it relatively easy to use for the end user. 
  • User of conditional logic – Enables the automation of manual processes like calculations to reduce errors, create a more efficient and customized experience for your users, and ensure the information you request matches the format you need to integrate it into your other data management systems.
  • AppSheet database – It has the facility to pull data from multiple sources at once , which in effect means it if constructed appropriately it can act as a relational database.

AppSheet is a game changer for those Spreadsheet users that like to provide selected mobile access for reports and updates using spreadsheets to not only source but to capture data,  location,  signatures,  scan bar codes, even those working offline.  Check out our range of Smarter App Solutions.

 

CloudData

AppSheet is particularly useful for Smartsheet users as it combines data from several Smartsheets or a combination of Excel, Google Sheets and Smartsheet – all in a user friendly interface – also available offline!

 

Mobile Apps for Every Scenario
