Chat and Comments using the Trebuchet Method

Hey Gliders, so using the Trebuchet Method created by @Robert_Petitto and @Lucas_Pires , @Santiago_Perez1 and I went a step further and created a chat and comments section that will no count towards your number of rows. Most of the credits go to the creators of this method, we just spiced it up!!! :slight_smile:
Hope everyone likes the idea!!

Now we need to find out if there’s a limit on the amount of information we can put in one cell. @david are there any limitations?

According to @Jason you can store 1 million characters in a glide table cell. Google sheets limited to 50,000 characters per cell


That’s very limited if it comes to a chat then…bad times LOL. Thanks for the info Robert

Yes there’s lots of use cases for the trebuchet method. The limitations are that it doesn’t do well with lengthy content nor does it allow you to easily correlate two values per submission. For example if I’m using it to track user check-ins at various locations, I can track email addresses and I can track timestamps but I can’t easily track which users checked in at those timestamps independently.


Always good to know these limitations, yet the method is sick :grinning:

I had been mulling over something like this for the community built messenger thread. Just never got around to it. I had the same concerns about maximum character limits for the cell size, but now it’s good to know what those limits are. Nice to see something like this in action.


@Pablo_Miguel_Martine can’t wait for the user guide to replicate it!
Well done!

Hey, sorry I’ve been extremely busy, I’ll make a video next week!!!
