Chat tab

How can I make the chat tab work between two apps….or how does the chat even work

Native chat will not work between apps. They are linked to only one app and stored internally within glide. You would have to build your own chat functionality with a shared table between apps, but be mindful that it will go against your row count.

So there is no alternative to allow chatting between two different apps

I think Jeff already answered your question, and described the alternative.

I still don’t understand….could you pls explain


  • The native Chat tab that comes out of the box with Glide only works in a single App
  • If you want Chat that’s shared between two or more Apps, then you need to build it yourself

If you’re asking how you would go about building multi-app chat, that’s not something I can answer in a few sentences. I’ve never done it, and I’m not aware of anyone that has. It would be possible, that’s all I know.


I don’t know how to do that….I have tried but can’t

I’m not surprised. Especially if you’re new to Glide, because it would not be a simple thing to do.

If this is something that is really important to you, then you might want to consider engaging an Expert to build it for you. There is probably someone out there that would like to have a go at this. (I’m not one of them).
