This announcement is strictly relevant to template creators who have submitted templates that were built on Classic Apps to our template store. If that doesn’t sound like you, feel free to ignore this post! But if it does, then there’s important info for you below.
As of Friday, June 16, 2023, we will be permanently removing all Classic App templates from our template store.
A couple of months ago, we hid Classic App templates from the store, but we didn’t actually get rid of them. If you found them on Google, or if you had the direct URL, you could still access and use these Classic App templates. However, because Classic Apps are no longer available to new users, this has created a bit of a tricky situation, wherein users are trying to copy Classic App templates, but they don’t work (because they don’t have access to Classic Apps.)
If you don’t care about your template disappearing, then no action is required. However, if you’d like to keep your template in our store, you will need to rebuild it on Apps. Follow the steps below.
Step 1: Log in to your Glide account and navigate to the “Templates” tab on the left side
Step 2: Click “New Template” and then click “Continue”
Note: you do NOT want to click “Create a Classic App”
Step 3: Rebuild your Classic App template as an App
Note: You must build your template using a Glide table; you can not use Google Sheets.
Step 4: Once your template is complete, click “Submit to Store” in the top right corner.
Step 5: Complete the submission form, and be sure to enter a well-written, SEO-optimized description for your template. This will enhance its discoverability on search results.
Be sure to review the template store guidelines to ensure your submission is ticking all the boxes. That way, we don’t need to send the template back to you for revisions.
Once you’ve submitted your template, we will review it and, in most cases, approve it for the store.
Come June 16th, the Classic Apps version of the template will be gone automatically, so there’s nothing more you need to do!
If you have any questions or comments, leave them below, and we’ll get back to you quickly!
