Can you have BOTH the app interface and glide sheets visible at the same time?

Is there any way to have both the app interface open on one tab of a web browser and have Glide’s backend sheets on another?

I’m stuck always having to click back and fourth and find this cumbersome…

I don’t think that will work, as Glide will only allow one client in the builder at a time. So once the second one logs in, the first one will be ejected.

@Butter-Bee - are you aware of the Data View on the left hand side whilst in the Layout View?

I’ve not tried this yet but you could attempt the following to see if it works:

  1. Make a copy of your app.
  2. When asked if you want to keep sane sheet or make copy of sheet, select same sheet.
  3. Publish the new version.
  4. Open original in one tab and second in another tab.
  5. Work on the backend sheet of the new one but see changes being made to the backend sheet of the main one (same sheet).
  6. Add new components to the main one. These will not be reflected in the new one, except the work carried out in the sheet.

I think i am day dreaming, but worth a try.

yes! I noticed this and should probably lean on it for now. I was hoping there’d be a way to make updates to the backend on one screen and see the results on the front end from a separate screen without having to click back and forth! I’ll have to note it as a feature request.
